I’ve told autograph collectors before, that going to film festivals is the way to go. Obviously, not everyone lives nearby the big ones. Yet if you check the ones nearest to you, you’ll often be surprised by the guests they…Continue
When I sat down to write a blog, I felt it should be about golfing legend Arnold Palmer. He was great at signing autographs, and other golfers have even said they started signing more, after seeing Palmer stand there for an hour.…Continue

Just before school started, a few big names came to town so I figured I would try to meet them.
First Kevin Bacon came back to Kent with his brother and their band. I didn't go to the show but I figured I might try to get Kevin on the Footloose soundtrack. The fans were waiting by the side door by the bus and he actually came out the front door. He did sign a few on the way to the bus and took some pictures with the primarily female crowd. I did get his scribble on the album…Continue
I always like a good autograph joke and Conan O’Brien had one the other night on his show. He talked about how Donald Trump once bought an autographed football helmet of Tim Tebow. The punchline was something along the lines of: He is just…Continue

A friend of mine introduced me to a buddy of his at a party that had a question about an autograph his father had. I rolled my eyes, asking what he had. It was a baseball signed by Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio!!! Of…Continue
The judge rejected Michael Johnson's fourth attempt to add shill bidding allegations to his RR Auction lawsuit a few weeks ago. With his attempt to make it a class action lawsuit failing in March 2015 and his attempt to add shill bidding and another claim failing on August 12, Johnson's case heads to trial in January, apparently on his original claims only.…Continue

Click the link, read my list...and tell me here if you agree, disagree, or what I may have left off.
I'm new to this forum, I'm a big fan of Bruce Lee, I've just been looking on the RR September auction remarkable rarities preview, I came across by far one of the best Bruce Lee pieces I have seen come on to the market in recent years:
Fully PSA authenticated and with provenance from the Lee family- Bruce Lee’s multi-signed handwritten essays and vocabulary assignments removed from his high school dictation book used while attending St. Francis Xavier’s College in Kowloon…Continue
I'm not goin' without you, Mac. I wouldn't leave you this way... You're…Continue
I like to write about various auction items that might appeal to the autograph collector, and it seems each week there’s a new one.
A few weeks ago, a number of Muhammad Ali items were listed to come up in auction. The 1974 WBC heavyweight belt, as well as a handwritten letter about his conversion to Islam. That would be an amazing piece, especially if it were signed “Cassius Clay.”…Continue

In entertainment news, Jay Z got into a little trouble for pushing a fan that he felt got a little too close to his wife Beyonce. They were in Manhattan at a screening of the boxing movie “Hands of Stone” (side note: I saw it, and it’s pretty good; if you’re a boxing fan, don’t miss it). They’re friend Usher plays Sugar Ray Leonard [side note: Sugar Ray has always been a good autograph signer, often adding a smiley…Continue
I've been shooting and reviewing concerts for 2 years and it's been great. Getting to be that close to the stage, even for only 3 songs, is an awesome experience. Hanging out after the show to try and catch the artists for an autograph is fun and talking with other collectors and hearing great stories makes it worth while, even if you don't always get the autograph.
This summer has been pretty good as far as adding to my collection. Here's what I did over summer vacation.
I’m not much of a country music fan. The closest I get is Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. Yet I’ve found that country musicians are among the best autograph signers (according to my friends and fellow collectors that meet them). One example is Garth Brooks.
There were a few years in a row, where he’d play with the San Diego Padres during their pre-season workouts in Arizona. Brooks would…Continue
No matter how you feel about Donald Trump politically...or how you feel about his hair...or his horrible reality shows...etc etc etc...there’s one thing we can all agree on. The dude has a cool autograph. Now, if you want a signed…Continue
I know he just won the Stanley, but I'm thinking Mario must have opened his own memorabilia store on ebay. That's the only thing that can explain this guys stuff.
The first came when I woke up, turned on the TV, and saw a commercial with Rams running back…Continue
Astute collectors know that crooked sellers use phony proof pictures to sell their fakes all the time. They steal images from other signings, pluck a photo from an internet search, and so on.
These so-called proof pictures rarely prove anything, but in this case, it proves the item is a fake, or at least, it is not the same photo that is being offered!
Here is a photo supposedly signed by Joe DiMaggio, Whitey Ford, Billy Martin and Mickey Mantle.…Continue
