Are you sure you got what you paid for in framing?

Just last week I received a call from a local individual who was referred to me by another framer. This guy, who was effected by the downturn of the economy, called me to sell his presidential document collection.

He mentioned he bought the collection, over a period of time, from a historical autograph dealer. We discussed the collection in length and its components. The seller also mentioned that the items were framed museum quality by a…

R.I.P Leslie Nielsen

Ator Leslie Nielsen passed away today!

I met him this year at a convention , but could not interview him as his autograph line was so long! He did , however, allow me 3 minutes to sign a few items for me and snap a photo op!

He will be missed. He was a great guy and awesome actor.

SIGNED copies of "Character Kings" -- Save $10 on the Perfect Christmas Gift for Movie Lovers!

As regular readers of Autograph know, I'm the writer of the column "Character Actors," featuring some of the hardest-working men in Hollywood who are instantly recognizable but whose names usually elude us. They're often referred to as "that guy" (as in, "Hey... It's that guy!") but they are the backbone of the film and TV industry, providing solid support to the stars and keeping the story moving along.

My book, Character Kings: Hollywood's Familiar Faces Discuss…

Autograph lunacy

The unbelieveable postings of this crook continue to show up all over the internet. I am speaking of Popculturesignatures,a giant of giants in the business of selling perhaps some of the most ridiculous signed items ever seen. Now this king of fakes has made his home on Ioffer.com, netting over $2,000.00 from one buyer alone who believes in pure fantasy.



Ioffer of course refuses to even investigate a seller who brings them such a goldmine in profits, even if he is the…

How does this affect a UACC registered dealer?

As someone who used to use the UACC as my only source for autographs, I relied on the Registered Dealer Program. That is until recently... I like many have been burnt by dealers in this program, my question to you all is this.... AACS recently moved from Iowa to California and since the move the number of really questionable autographs they offer has increased. I have sent several emails to the UACC about then and their offerings (to no avail). Well yesterday I went to log into the AACS web… Continue

So we get to the…
