Mantle Martin photo - can I get some love?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I listed 300+ more common signed photos and cards as well as 100 "Billy" items for my friend whose brother-in-law died. In return he has offered me a few items along the way. I'd LOVE to have this if it's real and we can determine a value (I figure if real about 150.00?) - don't know why it wouldn't be real given the context. It's the same shot of a larger photo signed by both that I sold a few weeks ago. I provided a close-up for you to look over. If you can offer an educated opinion - I'd appreciate it. Not looking for any kind of guarantees. "Looks pretty good" or "looks like crap" or "known counterfeit" ought to do it :) I worked pretty hard and this would be like a memento to the event - nothing I'm selling either way.

It just takes a second to help.... I do when I can.

Im not an expert, but met both and have sigs from both.
Looks good to me... in my experience, the Martin is a very nice one.

Well, the signatures are good and it's a fairly unique photo. I think you're $150 is the bottom, maybe up to $250 assuming it's live ink? I might be a little outta touch with the values with so many forgeries ruining the market.

Photo is really cool. Picks up on Billy and the Mick relationship perfect (well, except leaving out the R and X rated stuff) :-)

Are you sure it's live ink ? It's only the size of a baseball card, correct ?

OK!
 
you'se guys are pretty smart. I went and got the item - opened the case and sure enuff the signatures are flat and not live. So real but not real :-) Disappointing to be sure. My efforts were real even if the item isn't so I will have to be rewarded with something different! THANKS for the responses.
