Why is J.J. Abrams' autograph so cheap?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dane Muramoto Jun 9. 7 Replies

I'm constantly seeing well-regarded sellers with J.J. autographs in my price range (which is really saying a lot).Do people not like the movies? Is he just that easy to get? What's the deal here?…Continue

Has anyone had any experience with the CBCS "Verified Signature" (Red Label) program (handled through CSA Comics)?I know that no TPA is 100% accurate, but we all know that some are better than…Continue

Matte vs Glossy

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dane Muramoto Jun 3, 2015. 1 Reply

I alluded to this in my last discussion, but when did "Matte finish" start to mean "Glossy finish"?When I order a matte finish, I don't expect (nor order) what would be considered "semi-glossy" if I…Continue

"The other comments are all very valid, but it's also the case of his not being the star attraction. Let's say he and Harrison Ford signed the exact same number of autographs so the supply was the same for both. Ford's auto would still…"

"Reminds me of Bob Feller. He signed at card shows for 30 years and loved to mingle with fans at Cleveland games. He's the only deceased hall of famer I know of where you can still consistently find autographed balls for $50. He signed a million…"

"I wouldn't wait too long if you see one on something you really like for a great price. You never know when these guys tire of getting bothered. He is one of the best signers though, I would be surprised to hear he said no to anybody at the…"

Pete Chuka replied to Mike White's discussion Why is J.J. Abrams' autograph so cheap?
"JJ rarely says no, and he is the type of guy who signs multiple items. Add that to the fact that he is in public a lot and flying all over the place....a guy who is regularly accessible and friendly in Hollywood is pretty rare. Lots of hardcore SW…"

"I don't know his signature or signing habits, but what strikes me is this: it might be real because a secretary probably would sign in a cleaner way. He's quite old now and that looks like writing from someone of his age..."

"You think that that's bad?  I have an Enter the Dragon photo signed by Jim Kelly "To Rita" because the ass who wrote the sticky note couldn't be bothered writing legibly."

"Which reminds me.  On the first GW Bush book, you were able to write into an address, just supply postage and they would send you a signed bookplate for free.  I did, and affixed it to my book.  Anyone else have a thought on these?…"

James replied to Mike White's discussion Beware reprinted bookplates
"I love how they say, "Reprint - Text will not appear over actual reprinted bookplate." It's like saying to would-be forgers, "Don't worry. We've got your back. Nobody will know a thing!""

Steve Zarelli replied to Mike White's discussion Beware reprinted bookplates
"The first thing that strikes me is the bookplate itself. They are either color copies or high res scans that have been subsequently printed with a laser or inkjet. I am getting a hint from the auction images that they are not that sharp. The…"
