The Sweetest Autograph Story You'll Ever Read -- Captain America/Iron Man Edition

You hate when the news is turned on, or you open the newspaper, and it’s filled with bad news. You sometimes think of the cliche “If it bleeds, it leads.” But there was a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune the other day that…

George Zimmerman's Gun, Thomas Jefferson's Hair -- Which Would You Want?

I’ve never liked the idea of buying hair. Wait...I should probably explain that. I’m not talking about the way Elton John bought hair for $28,000 and had it surgically attached to his head. I’d certainly consider that, if I didn’t end up looking like Donald Trump…

Def Leppard

I've never been the biggest Def Leppard fan. Well, scratch that. I was in 8th grade when their big album Pyromania came out. My older brother bought me the album for Christmas and I loved it. It had the hits "Foolin'""Too Late For Love" and "Rock of Ages", as well as "Photograph." (my favorite…

Angry Amy Schumer vs Idiot With a Camera



I’ve long told the fellow autograph collectors, that the worst thing for the hobby is the fact that everyone has a camera on their phone. Instead of famous people being asked to sign a few autographs when they’re…

Movies and Autographs -- The Elvis & Nixon Edition

I had a few movie related autograph things I was going to mention. The first was about the Harrison Ford Star Wars jacket he autographed and sold for charity. Yet I saw that somebody on this site wrote about that.

So, a few autograph things in recent movies.

In an indie movie called "High-Rise"…

A Pretty Good Week For Graphs

What a hectic but fun week for me.

Last Saturday, Blue Oyster Cult played a small venue in Akron for two shows.  In a previous blog, I stated that I wasn't going to try for them since I was 0 for 2 in trying to get them after the show and Buck and Eric basically ignored everyone there.  …

A Huge Fist Fight Over an Autograph

I met a guy at a party 10 years ago, who “managed” Vince Neil, the singer of Motley Crue. By manage, it had something to do with race cars. This guy was a gearhead, and Neil was really into that. He lined up various race cars and…

Autographed Hats -- Why Would Anybody Want One?

A few weeks ago I posted the video of Kyle Busch being stuck in traffic and seeing a woman next to him wearing his hat. He honked, she freaked, and he signed the hat from his car. It was a wonderful moment, but it got me thinking about autographed hats. I've never liked them. It's for the same reason I don't like…

Who to trust?

I'm new to this site, so hope I'm using it correctly.  Seems every time I find a reputable company or authentication service, I find information that denounces it.  This even includes PSA/DNA which I assumed to be the gold standard of authentication services.  Roger Epperson, seems legit, then I find a lawsuit with email thread in which he gets nasty and doesn't honor his own guarantee.  Then there's Antiquities in Las Vegas, which seems a high end reputable store in business for many years…

What Happens When You Die? (to your autographs) -- Don Drysdale Edition

You know what I’ve given a lot of thought to over the years? What happens to my collection of autographs and sports/movie/music memorabilia when I die. Since I only have one kid, I just assumed she’d get it all. The problem is...I…

Signing Autographs in Cars -- the Kyle Busch, Johnny Depp Edition

I know, the title of this blog sounds like a Jerry Seinfeld show.

I remember when the Lakers acquired future Hall of Famer Steve Nash. Anybody that knew basketball, knew it was a horrible move. He was old, and injury prone. Yet once he joined the team, he was on the freeway and saw people with a Lakers bumper sticker. He honked at them (he wasn't driving, his friend was). They freaked out when they saw him, and there's video of them handing him a beer, while both cars were traveling…

Shoe Collectors -- the Stephen Curry and Joe Walsh Ediition

I’ve been playing basketball for almost 40 years. As a kid, aside from playing it, I loved getting autographs after Clippers games (back when they were in San Diego). Most of the big…

Music News -- From Beatles to Bieber

Well, last week was the Bruce Springsteen stuff. I found out I was the only person at the L.A. show that wanted his autograph and didn’t get it. One person had his arm signed. I’m not sure why. Perhaps he’ll get it tattooed. Another kid…

Musical Update plus a guitar question

One of my favorite vocalists, Geoff Tate from Queensryche, brought his new band- Operation: Mindcrime to Cleveland.  I got approved to shoot/review the show and I was hoping to meet Geoff after the show so I brought three albums with me just in case.  

Much to my surprise, I got free meet and greet passes…

I Hate Autograph Collectors (and that probably includes you)

I've really gotten disillusioned with autograph collectors over the years. Let me explain all my anger in this blog.

Most recently, a few autograph collectors were going to the Bruce Spingsteen concerts in Los Angeles. I wanted to meet up with them, buy 'em lunch, and talk about our best scores and biggest disappointments. It's sharing those stories that makes this website so much fun.

One person didn't get back to me. Another said, "I'm going to be on the autograph hunt all…
