Anyone see the eBay picture of the Apollo 11 crew with President Obama and signed by all? It's going for a buy it now of $2750.

Collins was on 11, not 12!

The Armstrong signature seems to have been copied from my old Hall of Shame.

Note to budding forgers - basing your forgery attempt on signature exemplars present in the Hall of Shame is a bad idea.

Looks like a shameless piece of junk from Coach's Corner.

If the Obama autograph is not real, would any federal agencies show any concerns or take any actions (at least while he is in office)?

I've reported it as a forgery. Hopefully eBay will take it down before someone is duped.

I would be willing to pay more for it if Obama's autograph was NOT on it.

Pull out your checkbook then, because Obama's signature is not on this item.

This is one of the funniest goofs on a forged space autograph ever. Made my day. Thanks.

I get the impression that there are more forgeries out there than the genuine article?

Buyer beware I think!
