    I'm no expert, but I say it's absolutely fake based on the sigs I have and have seen.

    The fake sig on the baseball looked more authentic than the fake sig in the Cujo book. No effort whatsoever was put into the fake index card.




    I meant to sprinkle the word "alleged" before the word "fake" throughout this post, of course.

    Anyone think it might have to keep a database of BS Ebay Seller IDs to help potential buyers out? Kind of like skfakes used to do before it flipped to a membership only site?

    The signature looks good.

    If that's a fake signature it's a good one.

    It is starting @ $49.00, and I have not seen (m)any of these signed for sale.
    Could be a nice purchase for someone.

    I hate to do it, but I have to disagree...I don't think that is a good signature. The loop in the "S" is really big, and it doesn't look anything like the sigs in the "Best Short Stories" books, or any recent limited edition...I don't like the "G" either. His real signature has been sort of cramped lately, not so much like this one...

    It could be real, don't get me wrong, but the areas where it looks okay are overshadowed - in my opinion - by the areas where I would have questions about it...

    Don't apologize. It's OK to disagree. Keep in mind this signature is from 2006. I think his signature changes from month to month and getting worse as he gets older. I actually hate the signatures in "Best Short Stories" even though I own a signed copy.

    But this is a great conversation for newbie collectors on flat signed books. Buy from someone you trust, Hutch, Shibus, Stu @ Betts, etc.

    I don't like that sig either. It seemed very deliberate, neat and the loop too big. The kind of pen used is also one I've never seen on any King signatures. A fine point calligraphy pen?. Also, wouldn't he date it as 06' instead of 2006?.

    Just my 2 cents. I could be wrong too. Would love to hear opinions from other members here.

    Yes, we're talking about the same signature...

    I think King's signature has been pretty consistent for the past couple years, actually...the one in "Best Short Stories" is pretty similiar to the "Buick 8" and "Dark Tower 5" signed books I got in Pleasantville...and it's similiar to the SOD limited ed. sign.

    But it is NOT similar to the signature in this Salem's Lot edition...that's just my opinion though...

    Rahfa,

    I see what you mean on the signatures. hehehe....I pulled out some of my S/L's, opened them up on the pool table, carefully looking at all the signatures. Of course my wife walks by with this look "Are you selling them", she says.

    It's amazing the different sigs I have in signed limiteds. I even pulled out some of the older signed limiteds Firestarter, Cujo & Danse Macabre etc. to compare.

    I have signatures ranging from cramped to neat. Of course we all know these are real because of the signed limited state.

    My flat signed books (yes I know the signature is real, I was there

    I only own a few. To answer one of the questions from an above message. Wouldn't he sign it with 06 instead of 2006? He's done both. My Fear Itself is signed with 1986. My Lisy is 07 instead of 2007.

    My Gunslinger is 1984 instead of 84.

    Again, like I said in an above message. If your buying a flat signed book. It pays to buy from someone you trust. Hutch is an awesome, honest seller. So is Stu @ Betts Books, Greg (Shibus), etc.

    John, Thanks for posting the sig on SKfakes. It will be interesting to hear what Calla wolf has to say. I think it would be awesome to get the mega collectors together in a room and learn the trade secrets of "How to tell a real King signature from a fake". Pressure points, what makes it fake, etc.
