Randy Gerstenberger is a sad self proclaimed autograph dealer who is frauding the entire autograph industry.  He bought nothing but genuine autographs from several dealers, went to a show or mailed them in to some kid at a TPA who stated he couldn't authenticate them, as he likely didn't even know who the celebrities even are.  Not the smartest dealer at all, Randy believes some kid as Randy cannot authentic anything, not even Phyllis Diller.  He does chargebacks, returns a few items and then claims he wasn't refunded after doing charge backs  He's on the spectrum and is more trouble than it's worth.  When sellers know he's wrong and the items are from publicized signings he sells them anyway on ebay as Randy has morals equal to a snake.  He then goes on rag sites like Reddit to slander those he buys from under fake names slandering them and calling them all sorts of names.  He has no clue what he sells, cannot authenticate a paper sack and is a really bad guy.  Beware.  This guy is a criminal and will rob you over a couple of bucks.

We refer to the signature of Elvis Presley in the earlier article  on The Autograph Planet. Let me assure you, this signature can and most likely will turn the collecting of rock and roll autographs upside down. Don't take this statement lightly.  It is my personal opinion that this signature and others may hit the tablids and news stations with a thunderous bang.

The owner of the signatures came to my office. He is almost finished writing a book, has a publisher, and it is due to be published in the spring of 2023, It has been two weeks since our two hour and a half conversation and I am still in shock!  The interview was so believeable I had to have a witness to the conversation. This man was in a position to be able to say the convincing things he had said.

Believe me, if you own something signed by Elvis Presley, don't part with it.
