No autograph is more popular than Mickey Mantle's. And no autograph is forged more.
Many Mantle forgeries are easy to identify, once you know what to…

James Cotton was Muddy Waters harmonica player, who in the ‘60s, played…Continue
Now, as a movie critic, my two favorite movies featuring Chuck Berry would be “Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n Roll.” I only saw it once, and seem to…Continue
I was listening to KFI 640 AM, a Los Angeles radio station. I often like to listen to “talk radio” when I’m driving, but have no interest in hearing people discuss politics. They have a lot of shows with interesting hosts, and they delve into other topics.…Continue

Last I heard, there were no genuine, intact Beatles-signed guitars known. The only one was reportedly destroyed in a Malibu, Calif. landslide about 15 years ago.
RR Auction sold one a Beatles signed guitar around 2010, but the owner had tapped the autographs down with an awl to, um, "preserve them."…
On April 12, 1961, Soviet Air Force pilot Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space. Launched aboard his Vostok spacecraft, Gagarin orbited the Earth and beat American Alan Shepard into space by 23 days.
On March 27, 1968, Yuri Gagarin was killed in a training flight crash at the age of 34.
Despite not being as much of a "household name" as Alan Shepard, John Glenn or Neil Armstrong, Gagarin is a tremendous historical figure and there is strong demand for his…Continue
I rescued a box of paperwork that was going to the dump from a Real estate clean out after bank repossession. Full of old paperwork from the mining days to find out that it had about 30 years of information from a man named W.R. Palmer who was a Arizona state senator. He was also A patented Inventor western Indian expert, A mining Engineer, and hard rock drilling expert. Also the man that patented a process he perfected turning cast iron to harder structural steel forever changing the…Continue
All of you autograph collectors will understand these two things. The biggest celebrity you ever got a signature from after never thinking it would happen (mine would be Paul McCartney; took me 10 years). The other thing we all love is that autograph project we’re working on. It might be…Continue
Terrell Owens was denied entry into the NFL Hall of Fame for a second time, which shows just how ridiculous the system is. He was one of the best receivers to ever play the game. Also one of the biggest dopes, but still. It’s not like the NFL threw OJ Simpson out after he murdered two people…Continue

Let me start by saying I am not a scientist. I have been collecting for decades, in that time I have purchased autographs, done TTM requests, traveled to conventions, and hit the streets in search of every possible signature that I wanted. I consider myself to be pretty successful at this hobby, and for years my answer to one question has been the same.
What's the best pen to use for an autograph? For 2 decades my answer has been a blue permanent overhead transparency marker called…Continue
So, we’ve all talked (or thought) about how horrible it is that autograph dealers capitalize on the death of celebrities. I suppose many will think it’s horrible when I say this. Certainly all my friends did when I talked about…Continue
I have a lot of autograph dreams. Over the years, I'd say I've had about 25 (that I can remember). Now, I'm not talking about an upcoming person I'm going to get. I've had so many times where I was going to interview somebody famous, or meet them at the venue...I didn't have a dream about that. I'm not sure why, but I only have dreams about getting autographs from dead celebrities. It's friggin' baffling to me. Not sure what Freud would say about that.
Last night, I had a dream that I…Continue
SPORTS MEMORABILIA FOR SALE!
Now, I hate parting with pieces I love, but I figure the time is right to sell this...and at a terrific price. I just acquired a piece that I think would be of interest to some fan. It's a game-worn jersey of Tom Brady's. It's not autographed, as I....errr...the person that acquired it didn't have time to ask him to sign it. He just kind of took it and...got it to me. Anybody interested?
I did a blog the other day about a game worn jersey I had of Tom Brady that's for sale. I was merely making a joke, because if you hadn't heard...during the Super Bowl, and the celebration the Patriots were having, somebody swiped quarterback Tom Brady's jersey from his locker. There's video of him telling the owner (Kraft), and he says, "I'll probably pop up online." (or something to that affect).
If somebody stole the game worn jersey, of perhaps the greatest quarterback of all…Continue
I was recently named as a victim in a forgery case. I purchased a fake Adrian Peterson autographed mini helmet, many years ago, from a fake company DM Sports World run by a Joshua Shores who will now be paying out 2.5 million dollars in damages to the countless people he ripped off. Since I received this…Continue
There was a story I read in one of the newspapers last week. It was all about autograph shops and memorabilia places. Of course, my interest was piqued. Unfortunately, it only dealt with one kind of autograph -- Donald Trump. Specifically, the fact that he's now "President Trump" (no matter how you feel…Continue
