Tom Brady Jersey Recovered

I did a blog about the Tom Brady Super Bowl jersey that disappeared. I thought it would only be fitting (no pun intended) to do the follow up.

A media executive working for the Mexican media named Martin Mauricio Ortega is the suspect. He’s the former director of…

Damn Right I Have the Blues! -- The James Cotton Edition

Everyone is talking about the death of rock ‘n roll legend Chuck Berry. Well, a few days before his passing, another legend died. Hardly a household name, but he certainly was in my household.

James Cotton was Muddy Waters harmonica player, who in the ‘60s, played…

The Chuck Berry Blog -- RIP King of Rock n Roll

The Chuck Berry signature on the neck of a guitar I own is one of my prized possessions. He’s the original rock ‘n roller.

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…

Not Wanting to Bother Famous People -- the CHIPS Edition

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.…

Want to Buy a Collectible Car?

I’ve written about cars before, and I’m always a bit perplexed with a car sells for millions, merely because it was used in a movie or once owned by somebody famous. Now, I’m not saying I’d kick an original Batmobile out of bed….errr….out of the garage. It’s just odd that some people think…

Weird NBA Collectables -- the Wilt Chamberlain/Stephen Curry Edition

For the longest time, Wilt Chamberlain was my favorite basketball player. That’s because as a kid, the Lakers were my favorite team. Once they drafted Magic Johnson, he quickly became my favorite player.

I was lucky enough to get Chamberlain’s autograph when I…

I'll Complete This Autograph Project....Come Hell or High Water!

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…

Wearing Jersey Leads to Autograph -- The Odell Beckham/Drake Edition

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…

My Time with Richard Hatch -- May He Rest in Peace

This is one of those rare times I’m going to write about an actor who I met many times, yet I’ve never asked for an autograph from.

My older brother collected sci-fi memorabilia and was obsessed…

Tom Brady and Kobe Bryant THEFTS

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…

Sports Memorabilia For Sale -- For Patriots Fans ONLY!

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?

Jimmy Kimmel Live -- An Autographed Super Bowl Football

I was backstage at Jimmy Kimmel Live one time, and it was thrilling. Mostly because I think he’s the funniest late night talk show host. I’m stoked that he’s hosting the Oscars this…

Asia Autographs -- Rest in Peace John Wetton

I found out a musician died this morning, and two frustrating autograph stories involving him, popped into my brain.

Donald Trump Autographs -- My Take On It

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…

SPORTS SHORTS -- The Jeff Bagwell, James Harden, and Robert De Niro Edition

Tom Hardy -- A Tough Interview a Great Signer

I have a love/hate relationship with TMZ. I watch it a lot because they’re funny, but I also think what they do is a bit weasly. One of my justifications to the wife on why I have it on, is because they sometimes show celebrities…

From Manfred to Manziel -- A Few Autograph Story Gems

It seemed like just yesterday that there was controversy when a college football stud -- Mr. Football -- Johnny Manziel was selling his autograph in a hotel room. You see, college athletes aren’t allowed to make money off their…

Mark Hamill Fights Autograph Forgers -- Gets a Bill Passed in California !

The last time I wrote about Mark Hamill in regards to autographs, it was after a series of autographs were popping up showing very funny, and sometimes inappropriate, things he inscribed. It’s something I wish more celebs would…

My Stupidest Blog Ever -- AUTOGRAPH DREAMS

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…

Meeting Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

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…
