How does an "Ultra Fine Point Sharpie" handle on a glossy photo? Does anyone have any examples on 8x10s so I can see how they look?Also, how consistent are they when more pressure is applied by the…Continue

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

"Ah, I get you. But can you even ask Stan to use a specific pen? I met him a few years ago, and it was such a rigid assembly line with virtually no interaction. "

"I think the best thing would probably be just to test them yourself to see what the variance, consistency, reliability, etc would be. If you don't have any scrap glossy photos, you can always just print a few small prints up at walgreens for…"

Rich replied to Mike White's discussion "Ultra Fine Point Sharpie"
"I brand new standard sharpie would probably give you the desired effect. I've gotten things signed on a couple of occasions with an unused Sharpie, and it gives a much finer signature than one that's been used or prepped more."

Rich replied to Mike White's discussion "Ultra Fine Point Sharpie"
"I would think okay, though perhaps not ideal. Curious what the strategy for using one would be. You can always test it on a glossy scrap photo if one is available."

James replied to Mike White's discussion Why is J.J. Abrams' autograph so cheap?
"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…"

Pete Chuka replied to Mike White's discussion Why is J.J. Abrams' autograph so cheap?

Edward Siebert replied to Mike White's discussion Don Rickles TTM
"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..."

So, I just moved into a new place. It's always fun when you do that, to go through all your autographs and admire the things you've acquired over the years.

Anyway, I have about 100 albums...well, maybe 50...that I bought from an estate…
