Re: EBAY

Get to know and trust the provenance and autograph rather than a COA. Companies can and do make mistakes. To dismiss eBay because there's no authentication from an "initial" company means you could be missing out on stuff.

Re: Photo or Photocard?

3x5s and even 4x6s are too small. To cut costs, I send out 5x7s.

Re: Danny Trejo Success-ish

Not odd at all. Trejo,for whatever reason, may not be able to sign/may not be signing at the moment, so rather than disappoint fans, he signed a whole bunch of photos to be sent out to requests (assuming that the signature is real.)

Re: WHICH SEAL TO USE FOR THE USA?

So long as the stamps add up to the amount of postage needed from the US to Brazil, you're fine. Currently, domestic Forevers are worth 55 cents and global Forevers are $1.15. So you could use two domestic Forevers plus a five-cent stamp to make the rate of one global Forever, for example.
