I came across these frame Life magazines in one of my commercial properties when the lessee skipped out. I have found out that they were framed at least 15 years ago. The complete mag is under glass. I had a certified appraiser and autograph expert look at them and issue COAs. I talked to RR Auctions. They passed because they could stand behind their "life time guarantee". I don't have any provenance. What do you guys think. I would like to sell them.

Sorry to say, those do not look to be authentic signatures.

All the signatures are poor forgeries. Sorry.

They look pretty cool, with some of the signatures signed along their neck ties, and then the second magazine with the Apollo 1 crew signatures in a kind of pyramid formation is neat, but the signatures look just terrible. I hope nobody bought these from someone.
