I'm interested in picking this up and I figure with the big Star Wars thread that it would be a good time to ask for some opinions. It comes with a COA from Celebrity Authentics and Billy Dee seems to be one of the actors that signs for them.
How does this look to you guys?
The website says they have a few in stock, so if/when I place my order I'm going to see if I can have a few pics of what they have in stock sent to me. Is there anything in particular that I should look for?
That appears to be Billy Dee Williams' signature but the image is exactly the same as the one on Celebrity Authentics' website so it's probably not the same one that you would be receiving. Why not just order it directly from Celebrity Authentics for $134.99? That's probably where they are buying it from anyway before they mark it up.
I've got a $165.00 credit from Sportsmemorabilia.com that I wanted to use to buy it. SM says they'll price match and since it seems as though they bought it from Celebrity Authentics, I don't see why I wouldn't be able to get it for $134.99.
I would purchase it then. It's a very nice piece.
I know that Billy do a lot of conventions. And there he usually charge $30-40 for an autograph or signed picture. So even if you buy your own mini helmet, I think it will be cheaper. (But not this convenient.) Just want you got get the heads up.
Agreed - Billy does a lot of autograph shows these days, including Wizard World and The Hollywood Show. He typically charges about $40 (sometimes more, sometimes less). He's also a Coolwaters Productions client - maybe you can see if there will be a preorder opportunity there. You can cut that price in half potentially.
