More Famous Cars -- the Jack Kevorkian Edition

Since I recently wrote about the automobiles of Keith Richards, Ringo Starr, and John Lennon…thought we’d delve into the opposite end of the spectrum. Instead of the guys that gave birth to classic rock…the vehicle of the man who killed many. Literally.

Remember suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian? Well, he…

Musicians signing in September. Some yes, some no, some disappear.

September has been a pretty good month for adding to the collection.  Things started to slow down in Northeast Ohio, but I still managed to get a few good ones.

Todd Rundgren made his 5th appearance in Northern Ohio in the past 12 months.  Apparently he has a pretty big fan base here.  Believe it or not- he is playing again in December.  I think people were disappointed with his “Global” tour as he basically played techno music and he only played a few of his hits.  So in…

Presidential Autographs and Handwriting Analysis

When Autograph Magazine could be found in newsstands everywhere, I enjoyed writing columns and stories for the publication. I still love writing the blogs.

Steve Cyrkin brought in a lot of interesting people to write for the magazine, but one person bugged me. Not on a personal level, but what it was she wrote about. It was handwriting analysis.

Does EBay Now Permit Shill Bidding?

A little over a month ago I sent an email to Ebay about obvious shill bidding.

Of course, Ebay never responded.

This has been going on for months with Ebay seller Stevew6.

Ebay seller Stevew6 is a consistent seller of GFA-certed forgeries.

The Beatles vs The Stones -- Well, Ringo vs Richards with Auction Items

I’ve never understood the fascination with famous folks cars that go for sale. Sure, the John Lennon, psychedelic 1965 Rolls Royce was sweet. I would buy it if I had the means (I said that in my best Ferris Bueller voice).

Another 1965 car, a blue Bentley, was once owned by Rolling Stones…

Another NBA Center Dies: Josh Board Meeting the Chairman of the Boards -- Moses Malone

It seems like just yesterday I was writing about Philadelphia 76ers center Darryl Dawkins death. Now comes news that Sixers Hall of Fame center Moses Malone has passed away at the age of 60.

These Philly centers are dying too young. One of my all-time favorite players, Wilt Chamberlain…
