Beware!!! Fraudster newyork-nyc selling fake tickets on ebay!
Until last year I've never come across any fake Queen tickets. Yes, there are tons of reprints and other framed cheap crap but the auctions always say so. But recently I've come across a very dangerous fraudster and it's very important to warn other collectors. One American citizen who is using several alter egos (Giorgio Bacci from New York, Marco B. from Seattle and possibly others) is selling tons of fake tickets via his ebay account newyork-nyc. All his tickets are literally megarare (such as Smile in Truro 1970), he also sells plenty of other (Beatles, Elvis, Led Zeppelin) tickets and it's not easy to spot that they're fake, they do look quite real on the photos. I was also fooled at first. Luckily he was stupid enough to sell the tickets to me (= to one of the biggest collector of Queen tickets in the world) and when I finally had the tickets in my hand everything became obvious. He downloaded the scans from my site, he just changed the ticket number, did a bit more Photoshop work, printed it using a cheap colour inkjet printer and creased it to make it look old. When I informed him about my research he was clearly afraid of bad publicity, refunded me immediately and stopped communicating, he even didn't want to have his fake tickets back! But he keeps selling more and more of those fakes tickets also he also sells many tickets off ebay, he has already cheated tons of people incl. Queen fans. Avoid this thief - ebay account newyork-nyc at all cost!
Leading seller of FAKE Queen signatures - rareandsigned
99% of Queen signatures on ebay are fake. Doesn't matter what kind of official certificate they bear, almost all of them are fake. I do NOT want to be involved in continuous discussions regarding who was faking what but there's one big seller of fakes that I really have to warn you about.
We've been watching seller rareandsigned on ebay for 10+ years, he has sold an incredible amount of fake Queen autographs (all done by the very same hand - his). Unfortunately his business is growing and now he even has a rareandsigned website and he also runs a fake Queen Autographs website (I think he bought the domain that I had abandoned). Beware!!! There's not a single genuine Queen item there. He has sold thousands of fakes and made millions of dollars on people who unfortunately aren't experienced enough to recognize fakes. It's almost impossible to sue them because these people usually run business from Cyprus or any other dubious country that doesn't have forgery laws.

Tour programs wanted!
Here is a list of concert programs that I need for my collection together with the price I'm willing to pay. There are a couple more that aren't listed here because I don't have any scan (All Cannings 2012, Wintershall 1998 + 2011). Please get in touch if you are willing to sell (or donate :-)) some of these items to me. Thank you!
