    Blink-182 Signature Study

    oh for sure. i saw mark signing both "hoppus" and "182" in the spring of '96. my perspective on all this stuff is based on my first-hand memories of that era, so when i saw the "'96" and the "tom blink-182" my hair stood up because that SO does not comport with all of my memories of the time. the pen use also struck me as weird, as if not signed by the same pen at the same time. mark is middleweight, tom is super thin, scott back to being thicker. i don't devote a ton of time looking at this stuff, and i certainly have no dog in the fight (not desiring to either prove or disprove this particular 7" signing as authentic). but my instinct was very much in the negative column. nice of you to track down the comparative shots for this thread; i hope it helps other collectors make their own determinations.

    in your initial post, you said "and just when I think that is as nice and OG as it gets, I find this." where did you find the image, and who owns the 7"? it would be great to see some larger photographs of the whole thing.

    that's ok. your points are interesting, but i remain unconvinced.

    given my own examples from that time, and others i have examined, my impression is that it's forged; absolutely. 1.) "may the force" is clearly not mark's handwriting. you can even compare it to a cargo cheshire cat poster where he wrote the same thing. 2.) the signatures are not consistent with other examples from the period; all three are equally bad attempts to copy each band member's style. 3.) tom began signing "tom blink" and mark began signing "mark 182" in the first half of 1996. neither of them ever signed first name + "blink-182." the entire point of the joke is that tom was "blink" and mark was "182." that's the most telling indicator of forgery on this uranus sleeve.

    I remastered their early demos

    same daveyjones. i'm actually the source of the first mp3s of all three tapes to appear on the internet at all. back in 2003 in 192k on a BT tracker called demonoid (again, rest in peace).

    both these things. i mean, i'd have to risk that 7" in the pit, just to hope to catch tom at the merch table. and i just didn't think about it. i was just going to shows and hanging out. mark and scott signed it sort of as a joke; we were just having a conversation in between band sets at their merch table. it was very impromptu.

    was your source lossless?
  14. big brother is Impact. mint is linotype's cut of bauhaus (**NOT** bauhaus 93, the microsoft cut). i can't remember what i used for Short Lived but it's a pretty generic body serif. any sort of garamond / baskerville / times roman should be fine.
