where is earl?, i asked about other authenticators, and who they will be, I got a response from a collector, but not earl? Earl, do you know who the authenticators will be? why is this seem to be some big secret?
Earl posted he is out for two weeks so you will have to wait for his reply.
Also as a collector who reads Net54, its pretty clear you are very anti-grading company authentication and my guess only here for your own negative reasons. Getting a list of who is doing the work is great, but you already know its not going to be any of the heavyweights like Simon, Keating, Stinson, etc as they already have successful businesses in the same field. Im guessing even if you get your list your only plans will be to knock each and every person on it.
I have no problem pointing out errors that are made from these companies (and they make plenty but so do the experts) but its gets tiring when thats all you do.
posted on Net54 and on here too. For those that fail to read
