How can I authenticate an autograph?

I found a U2 autographed guitar on Ebay that I want to buy. Is there anyone out there that can look at the photos and verify the signatures? Help would be appreciated. U2 rocks. Thanx.

I've heard figures of over 80% of eBay Autographs are fake. Since U2 is fairly easy to get, I would suggest just trying to get them yourself.

PLUS I heard Bono/Edge won't sign guitars anymore, so who knows if it was real?

I have autos from all except Edge.

(Might help to link to the auction, or the eBay # so people will know which one you are looking at too)

None of them look good to me, compared to my autos.

This page has all their auto's by year.

Bono's looks similar
Edge's looks nothing like that
Adam's similar
Larry's doesn't have the "sweep back" look

Do a google for a company called PSA/DNA.

For around $8 they will tell you if it is likely or not likely genuine.

It needs to be an eBay auction.

This is a great idea and they are very highly regarded in this area.

Good luck and let us know what you find out.
