Today things from Charles Manson and that interview have become highly collectible items. The photos below show things like the shirt Manson wore in the interview on television, the actual signed contract for the book, media and promotional photos, DVD'S of the interview, to the teeth from the mouth of Charles Manson that day. These things all in private collections and highly sought after in the crime memorabilia world.
A Google search for Charles Manson Autograph will give you results in the thousands, but have you ever wondered how many of them were actually real? I have gotten letters in the mail from Charles Manson for over 20 years now and have become pretty good at spotting things that just don't look right when others want claim they have a "GENUINE REAL" Charles Manson autograph. I am not just talking because I also have credentials that include, writing credits, with several pieces I have written for "Autograph Times" in the ninety's as a contributing writer. I have studied autographs for years and collected them for over 35 years. I also have to my credit making an appearance on Rogan's Hero's television program here in Los Angeles as a Autograph Expert during the O.J. trial, to talk sports autographs with Fred Rogan. I Google Charles Manson autograph, my honest opinion is, over half of them are not real., some are known fakes and some are just laughable.
One particular website recently got caught selling Fake crime signatures, the F.B.I. busted a ring that was creating fake Mickey Mantles, Princess Diana's and Charles Manson's. Those items I still see for sale on Google daily. So called reputable auction houses sell fakes daily with no recourse or any guarantees, none they stand behind anyway. I have seen plenty of people make statements about things that simply wasn't true. So the moral to the story again would be, if it sounds to good to be true it probably is.
Charles Manson items are not rare, they are out there, and they are real if you find them from the right places. So collect with a passion and a caution all at the same time because many who claim to be professionals are not, or the ones who claim to be honest, well I would say, you be the judge of how honest they are not them.
