Lennon Letter -- An Auction with Marilyn Monroe and John Lennon Letters

So what are the latest cool items popping up in auction? Well, a foot long, nearly 9 inch in diameter egg. Perfect present for Easter, if it weren’t expected to fetch $45,000 at Christie’s auction house in London. You won’t want to color it in pastels either. It’s a massive fossilized egg that was laid on the island of Madagascar by the extinct elephant bird (imagine one of those messing up your windshield).

These birds resembled ostriches and could grow up to 11 feet high,…

Your Honor...I just have one more question for the defendant: "Can I have your autograph?"

I didn’t think it was possible for me to do another blog about Jodi Arias, but here it goes. Since the last time I talked about people buying her paintings of famous people (Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe), now it’s time to give some love to the other side – prosecutor Juan Martinez.

All over CNN and Headline News today, I kept hearing this story. Perhaps they’ve grown tired of playing the same clips over and over again. Anyway, the story was about how outside Maricopa…

Long Lost Gene Simmons Autographed 8x10

About 33 years ago, me and some friends decided to build a little KISS stage and put on a real live concert in my hometown of St. Stephen, South Carolina.  Through a mutual friend, I sent some pictures of the show to Gene Simmons and this 8x10 is what I got in return.  I kept it a while then sold it in the mid 80's.  I've decided to search for it and try to bring it home.  If you have it or have seen it or knows who has it, please get it touch and I will be forever grateful.  I will…

The Beatles -- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Autographed Album

I didn't post a picture, because, well...we all know what that beautiful gatefold looks like when it's opened up to show the Fab Four. But wait, it gets better! This signed album has all of The Beatles signing in the yellow section, not over their black hair. That means they're all very legible. They all signed by their respective heads (not that that matters), and best of all...John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the ones sitting closest to the middle section that folds, don't sign over that…

To Blog or not to Blog.... that is the question.

Hi All,

I thought I'd introduce myself, my name is Wascher and I've been helping Steve moderate posts on the AML site here for a little over a month, as he has taken on some other responsibilities at this time and isn't always available.

We were talking today about the individual BLOG posts coming in that have one ebay seller and their forged item and we've decided together that we think that those types of posts would be better placed into the DISCUSSIONS areas, instead of in…

Ryan Gosling's Jacket -- You Can Own It!

Some autograph collectors only want signed memorabilia. There’s nothing wrong with 8x10s signed by your favorite actor, but they’re a dime a dozen. You can go into Pink’s and buy a hot dog, and looking at a wall full of signed pictures.

 

A script signed by your favorite TV show, or cast members…

Going to be in Chicago for PSA DNA authentication this weekend so I have a question and want opinions

I have a couple of items that I want authenticated and one of them is a dual signed Dimaggio and Williams 8x10. I t was professionally framed and matted years ago but they will only authenticate it unframed. In your opinions I have had this looked at by some of you and most opinions were that it was legit so should I tear it out of the frame to get it authenticated or leave as is and sell as is ?
