I have a couple of copies of The Worlds of TSR signed by some of the artists. I'm not exactly sure which artists they are, in fact. 1 of the copies has 4 signatures, the other 2 copies have 3.

How would I go about authenticating the signatures? How do I tell which of the artists they are signed by?

Thanx!

well how about scanning/making a photo of  the sigs and posting the pic here on the boards? I think some of the other fellows around here will recognise some of the signatures even if you have them in black ink on a black background

Here's the title page from the copy with 4 signatures. The other 2 copies have the same top 3 signatures on them.

Thank you!

Also have this as well. The book is not in too great of condition, but should make an interesting collector's item.

You've got the Fab Four on the Inn of the last home! (Jeff Easley, Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, Clyde Caldwell), or Fab Five, if you want to include Fred Fields.

The Worlds of TSR has the autographs of Fred Fields, Paul Jaquays and Dana Knutson. Who's the first autograph? Failed my read languages  check.

I remember I saw an auction of the Worlds of TSR with exactly the same autographs on eBay not too long ago. Looks like they had a session for signing those? If I remember correctly, it went a little higher than average (in other words, higher than $15).

I would value the Inn of the last home higher, because it is signed by all major TSR artists of the AD&D period.

Not sure who the top sig is from. This came to me via a used bookstore.

I appreciate all the help!

I doubt it will go very high due to the fact that the person isn't accepting Paypal as a form of payment. They'll be lucky to get the opening bid for these great books they've got listed.

Well... I'm going to put the Worlds of TSR up on eBay and see what comes of it. I'm going to try the copy with 4 sigs first. I've tried the Inn on eBay once before, and nobody bid.

If anyone's interested, I'll post the auction in the Classified area.
