It has been a November to remember, indeed. The month started off by seeing the Alan Parsons Project Live. A good friend of mine bought a front row ticket and the meet and greet package for Alan. I believe it was like 90 dollars, which is pretty good considering most meet and…Continue
The finest compendium of Hollywood signed photographs ever assembledContinue
Of all the various autographs I have, it’s my signed album and CD collection I cherish most. That means I can’t resist looking at various things people are selling, usually cringing at how expensive everything is.
Of all the bands in music, and I’ve seen them all, the groups that have the most forged signatures are: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Eagles. Now, don’t get me…Continue
When I heard Florence Henderson died this morning, it was right before I was set to go on the radio and do my movie reviews for the weekend. I mentioned how The Brady…Continue

If you had to pick which Minnesota Vikings player you’d want a photo from -- it might be Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton. An action shot of him running for his life to not get sacked. It might be Adrian Peterson, the current running back,…Continue

When the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship last year, that assured Lebron James a special place in basketball history. It also assured the team a trip to the White House. That’s got to be a lot more special, considering the fact that the President is a hardcore hoops fan.
Oddly enough, the Cavs trip to the White House happened the same day president-elect Trump had an hour…Continue
It was on my mind a lot yesterday (that almost sounds like a Ray Charles song). I was talking to a friend about a Fantasy Football controversy we were having (believe me, as I write that, I realize how nerdy that makes me sound). He screamed into the phone, “Oh my god! Trump just won Ohio. This election is all over.”
That was four hours before it was…Continue

Harry Potter memorabilia goes for a lot. I’m guessing the cast of the movie is sick of signing Potter photos everywhere they go.
Actress Emma Watson, who played Hermione (and had such a hysterical turn in This is the End, and terrific role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower) did something…Continue
Let's take some time to talk about autographs, sounds silly right? In the last few weeks a number of new & old collectors have popped in here on this site and elsewhere with items they want to know about...Is this real? What's the value? and so on.
One of the great things about the late night shows (aside from the terrific humor of Jimmy Kimmel), is when celebrities tell stories, and talk of signing autographs arises.
The other night, Elijah Wood was on one of the shows. He said, “I just hate signing autographs. I hate it, but I can’t say no. These people come up to me, and I know they’re going to just sell these things, but I…Continue
I always get a kick out of stories where one celebrity asks another for an autograph. The last blog I wrote dealt with Phil Collins and his bad experience asking Sir Paul McCartney for a signature. This latest story, worked out a lot…Continue
It’s been a pretty productive fall for adding to my music collection.
The middle of September, George Thorogood came to town. He did his usual wave to the crowd and went right to the bus. But his…Continue
Phil Collins has something in common with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. They’re the only three musicians to have sold over 100 million albums as both a solo artist and prominent member of a band.
Collins has a more interesting connection to Paul McCartney. In the 1964 movie “A Hard Day’s Night”....Collins, as a young boy, can be seen as an extra.
I’ve always loved making bets with people. It’s a way to win a little cash if somebody is talking arrogantly about something they know little about; and...well..it’s just fun to gamble. Isn’t it so much more exciting…Continue
I’m a movie critic. I love films. I’m also an autograph collector, that loves memorabilia. Movie memorabilia is my favorite. I own a few interesting things from movies, my favorite being one of the toga outfits from (no, not Animal…Continue
Ethan Hawke is an actor I've always admired. Even in movies I didn't care for -- Training Day (which got him an Oscar nomination), Sinister, and Reality Bites (he does rock the Violent Femmes, though) -- his performances in those films is solid…Continue
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
