Totally agree! KS is a great video curator. Wish KS had a blog for sharing those findings. That film is a gem... What an interesting time and place it reflects!
On selling faking goods... It's so obvious there's a high chance you are buying faked memorabilia under those conditions. My country is full of fake cds, dvds, etc, even in street shops, since there's zero control. Someone told me even local distributors offer genuine and fake goods at the same time, making a huge earning.
A good idea is collecting life experiences, not things. Keeping things when they are related to personal experiences or very well known people's experiences, not just for the sake of having objects. But I guess we are damaging someone's business here. I don't care, get a job.
" But I guess we are damaging someone's business here. "
I agree with you.
I suspect this what it's all about.
And of course I don't mean the honourable and honest people here who are trading genuine stuff for a fair price. But I know their expertise was not something gained easily and they have had their share of bad experiences. That's how it works, they learn from that and can judge items on very specific details not quite known by fans who just want to buy something.
I do believe with autographs it is very difficult to judge if they are genuine or not, unless you were present and saw it written down in real time.
I like it you enjoyed that film with Orson Welles.
It's amazing and very insightful.
