Signed Bama Prints?
I have two Bama prints that belonged to my father. They are numbered, but I cannot tell whether the signature on the print is part of the picture or a signature. Does anyone know or have pictures of what a signed print would look like? Do the unsigned prints have his signature within the image? Help!
Bama and other Western Artists
I collect LEP's and in doing so I descovered that a company is making copies of Bama's maybe others prints and selling without listing Bama as the artist and they changed the name of the print. I would like to know is this legal? Soould I report this company? If so to who? If this kind of thing is legal does it make any sence to buy any of these pieces? I have been looking all over for a discussion on this subject and have yet to find any. I think some talk on this would be helpful to new collecters Thanks.

James Bama's Aurora Monster Kits Artwork
As a child growing up in the 1960's I used to love the cover artwork on the Aurora Monster Kit boxes. I wondered if they ever reproduced these splendidly atmospheric covers in the form of posters?
Looking forward to hearing back from any other readers of this forum!
This painting was commissioned by Bantam books as a cover illustration for the book "The Adventures of the Negro Cowboys" Nat Love was an African American cowboy, famous in his time, also known as "Deadeye Dick" (may have been "Deadwood Dick", I'm looking into which is correct now). The painting was stored by the publisher until 1989 when it was purchased by a former employee of Bantam. It has hung in the buyer's home until now. The current owner's collecting interests have changed, and the painting will soon be seen by the public for the first time. It is oil on board, apx. 25" x 34" and depicts Nat Love and his saddle and gear. The image of Nat Love is 19" tall + -. Condition is excellent.
I have never seen any reproductions of this work. I'd be interested to know if anyone has.
