Fake autographs from official sources - repeated warning
Recent events have forced me to remind you something important. Roughly between years 1983 and 1991
the Queen fan club was sending fake signed items to fans (with the obvious knowledge of the band). Thousands
of people have sent in items asking for Queen autographs and ALL of them have received their item
with ugly (truly horrible looking) fake autographs. This "service" was free and every major band does that
so that is NOT an issue. The problem is that the owners are now selling these items as genuine,
beginners among buyers are paying thousands for this crap and experts who have discovered this scam
more than two decades ago are being blacklisted, blocked and trashtalked by the fan club representatives or members.
If you have two eyes and an IQ higher than 70 please look at the sample photos below and judge for yourself. I'm already sick of all the lies.
Hint: look at Brian's beautiful "B", John's symmetrical "ohn" or Freddie's final "y" or his typical "dd".
(And if you're unsure about your item you can ask some of the biggest Queen experts and collectors in this Facebook group).
First photo - beautiful genuine signatures from mid 80's (the Complete Works box set)
Second photo - horrible fan club fakes written by a female hand
Third photo - second (slightly better) version of fan club fakes (allegedly by a male hand) sent out in 1989-1991
QueenZone forum archive
QueenZone has shut down in November 2020. The forum archive was
available for free download in MSSQL format so I've decided to convert
it to mySQL and publish the discussions (without any personal info at all)
in form of a read-only searchable forum. Some of the expert discussions
mainly from mid to late 2000's are worth preserving and reading.
So - you're welcome to enter the QueenZone forum archive!
On this day [March 09]
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 (Wintershall 1998 + 2011). Please get in touch if you are willing to sell (or donate :-)) some of these items to me. Thank you!
