"I sort of agree with Pug. I think if you can get $4,500 for it, that's a steal. For a lot of the reasons already mentioned."

What do Link Wray, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock All Have in Common?

One of the perks I have being a movie critic is seeing all the movies before they come out (and not paying to see ‘em). At a screening the other night, I was interested in a documentary coming out soon called “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World.” As a huge fan of rock ‘n roll, this is right in my wheelhouse.I’m…See More

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector, Other
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Sports, Books/Literature, Modern Hollywood and Stage, Classic Hollywood and Stage, Music
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
For some reason, as a kid and teenager, sports autographs were my favorite. Especially basketball, as I grew up playing it. But as I became older, I started gravitating more towards singers and musicians I was a fan of.

My collection consists of thousands and thousands of autographs. Everything from CDs and albums, to movie posters, musical instruments as well as the usual 8 x 10 signed photos.

I have a lot of pieces that are very valuable, and I hate the fact that they are stored very poorly in my friends garage. But the fact is, I've run out of space at my own house. And even though I love collecting, I don't think they look good on the wall. I don't want my home looking like a Hard Rock Cafe, I'd rather have nice art work on the walls and things like that. So, that means all me pieces are just sitting in the garage or on my desk, etc. It drives my girlfriend crazy, but I can't complain. Many times, she's with me on my quest to score the next autograph.
What is your level of expertise?
Professional
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
It would be a tie between a Morrison Hotel album, that is not only autographed by all four of The Doors, but also the photographer of the album (Henry Diltz), as well as John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful), who plays harmonica on Roadhouse Blues. My goal is to have it signed by everyone that had anything to do with the record, although, a few of (producer Paul Rothchild, guitarist Lonnie Mack) have died, so I might be done with it already.

I'm also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best).
Why do you collect?
I think it's fun. But I'm so glad that as I've gotten older (I'm turning 40, the same year as Woodstock is!) I've chilled out. If I don't have an item for a celebrity, I don't rush up and bug them. Or if I meet someone famous, I'm not in a panic looking for a Sharpie. And it bothers me if I'm in LA getting an autograph, and some of the ebay dealers are doing exactly what I hate -- pushing and shoving, being rude, getting 20 head shots signed, and they aren't even a fan of the person that they're hounding.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
If it's an actor -- Marlon Brando. A musician -- Jim Morrison. A historical figure -- Jesus Christ, although it would probably be hard to authenticate, huh? I'd also make him turn my Evian bottle into a nice red wine.

A lot of interesting autograph things were shown happening on TMZ tonight (that show is my guilty pleasure).

Wrestler Chris Jericho was signing autographs for some people and when he said he wasn’t going to sign anymore, a guy got upset and started screaming…

Peter Frampton -- Lost His Hair...and now his Cool

Posted on July 24, 2017 at 9:48pm 2 Comments

Two friends of mine that do autographs -- one that’s a wonderful man with a great collection, the other a dope that’s an autograph dealer -- have told me of the countless times they’ve gotten Peter Frampton and how nice he was at signing. They got him at the venues and at hotels. Now, I have a bunch of Frampton albums that are signed, but I bought them cheap with a collection of albums. I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting him, or seeing him in concert.…

I got that call from a girl I hadn’t heard from in years. It’s that call we all dread. No, no...not that type of call! It’s someone that asked me if I could meet her downtown for the first day of Comic Con, to help her get Conan O’Brien’s autograph. He was going to be filming some shows down…

Yes I'm sure. The auction I bought mine at in new York said only 25 were signed with all four boys. 25 signed would still give 25 different people or radio stations a chance to own one. I'm not selling mine. I doubt a radio station would just get tossed one. Perhaps it was a copy your station had. Or maybe someone there did buy one. Jacky Smith (head of Queen's fan club) had approved it as being one of only a handful signed. She didn't know how many exactly.

I read on your page you are "also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best)."

That is a great piece. Do you have a picture of it posted anywhere? What about the Doors album? I'd love to see both of them.

hi Josh, whats your personal opinions on authentic I Dream of Jeannie bottle props?
i've seen a 2nd season sold at Butterfields, a 1st season sold at Profiles in History.
and another 2nd season sold on eBay.
i've always wanted one, i know there expensive, but if the person whos selling them,
i would commit/agree to a standard payment each month to pay it off, because its my 'DREAM' to own an original jeannie prop bottle.
p.s. do u know any stores, and/or online stores that sell 'replicas' for a good/inexpensive? i hope u had an awesome July 4th!
-Jason.

Josh, I deleted Myron Ross's blog post by mistake when I went to edit a misspelling in the title, sorry. I let him know so he could repost.

thank you so much. & i have 1 other question...
i met former Vice President Al Gore & his wife about 7 years ago at a booksigning
for their book i believed it was titled 'joined at the heart' ...
i bought a local newspaper ''the Raleigh News & Observer''
& the front page & headline story said:
'Al Gore will not run again for re-election'

he and his wife gladly signed it.
since its an important headline with a picture and its signed by the both of them, would that be a rare item, as suppose to a signature etc. ?

could you help me out with some advice about an autograph?
i obtained it in person, and i know its real (duh) anyways, i'd like to have your thoughts as in demand/rarity for this item...
used in concert & signed drum sticks by Britney's Drummer
signed tour glowstick by her entire band.
i would be honored to have your opinions in regards to these two unique items.
thanks,
-Jason.
