Does B.B. King still sign?

I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. King a few times over the years and he was always gracious. Does he still sign in-person? And is there anything he refuses to sign now? He is coming to town in early January and I would like to try again.…Continue

I've been a KC Royals fan (hold the laughing) all my life.  I went to their workouts last year and took pictures with a handful of the player as their workouts are never crowded.  I wasn't yet into full autograph collecting though so I didn't get…Continue

FYI. No longer in NYC, I started selling my autographs on eBay (My ID is ragsus2014), and of my first 100 posts sold 60. Do check out the rest and future posts when you can (I have well over 2000)... and do tell others.

I already miss the collecting. Know what I mean?

I took a trip to Toledo, Oh today to meet, comic book writer, Dirk Manning.
He was very cool and talked, at great length to his fans. He even shook my 6 year olds hand after he was done signing for us. Class act.
I had him sign a few comics for me and his new graphic novel: Tales of Mr. Rhee.

For in person collectors, a little FYI, a good place is the artists door at Jimmy Kimmel tapings. It is the back door behind the El Capitan. I waited after every taping that i attended and have gotten autographs of various performers(and usually pics) each time. For those that don't live near there, some singers are very good to their waiting fans outside concert venues. The 2 I found are amongst the best are Lady GaGa and Josh Groban for post event signings and picture taking.

I just wanted to make a comment about Michael Ragsdale. I purchased a signed program from him on ebay of Lou Reed and it arrived today better than expected, faster than expected with bullet-proof packaging. This guy is top-notch. Thanks Michael

2014 Texas Rangers Spring Training in Surprise, AZ. Now, I wasn't actually there but my step mother and father went to Sedona and while they were in the area, went to Surprise to visit my step-sister. I had sent them a few things just in case they went to a Spring Training practice, and they came back with these two cards signed and an autographed Mitch Moreland baseball. These two cards/autographs are very special to me since I missed out on winning the "lottery" at Rangers Fan Fest in January for these two players. Choo has such a beautiful signature, in my opinion. And Beltre, what a player! Man, he is one of my all-time favorite 3rd basemen.

Went to the grand opening of a Gander Mountain store in Toledo, Oh.
We got to meet Randy Birdsong and Nate Hosi from Headhunters TV Show on the Outdoor Channel.
Both guys were very cool as they talked to my kids and signed pics for all of them. My wife even had them sign something!
Those guys were really down to Earth and a pleasure to meet.

On November 29, 2005, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter appeared with author Joshua Shenk for a discussion at the New York Public Library in NYC. I got them to sign an official event flier.

It and many other autographed pieces of mine are now for sale on eBay, under the ID of ragsus2014. Check them out!
