Though I recall a member posting a blog asking about this a while ago, I could not relocate it for my purpose in this discussion.
It can be nice when one stumbles upon a musician's shop (via their website), to see that they are selling their autographs. Stephen Duncan has referred to this as a 'win-win' situation. I figured this could grow as a wee database for listing those musicians who partake in this.
I recently recieved a couple press photos signed in ballpoint from John Mayall's website (http://www.johnmayall.com/merch.html). I am also aware that you can purchase signed CDs from Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits(http://peternoone.com/store/). John 5 ( formerly Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie guitarist) sells various items signed, with an option to dedicate.
So, does anyone else know of this being done by other musicians?
Ordered one as well. Hopefully didn't pay nearly $250 for a stamped signature!
Honestly, I doubt it's a stamp. In all likelihood, it's authentic. But, again, I'm wondering what out of the set is actually signed. Maybe it doesn't matter that much.
I hoping it's the album. But, would be happy if it's the cd.
Thanks so much...just ordered one..im sure these will sell out fast...someone already has 2 listed on ebay for 775 dollars each...
Thanks! Also ordered!
I just had to take a chance. if it is hand-signed, at this price for Page, its a bargain!
It will be if not stamped, I would think they would promote them as stamped if so. I see people selling his stamped books for a couple of hundred dollars with pictures of him stamping them. Makes me scratch my head!
thanks as well…. just can't let this one slip by...
I think the argument for, even by non-fans, is that Page basically stopped signing for fans. Add that to his legacy, and I think a lot of collectors are willing to make the purchase without thinking too hard.
If I had more money to spend, maybe I would. But in addition to being $240, I have some serious questions of what's being signed and how it's being signed. When Jimmy has offered signed items on his website before, to the best of my memory, they've been extremely expensive. So why is this cheaper? To boost sales on a less desirable item?
I don't know. If I was a fan, it'd be a different story. But Zeppelin really never drew me in, and I don't especially care for that era of music in general. But I do completely understand why some other collectors are probably thinking this is a no brainer.
What I plan to do is to cut his signature and frame it together with one of his classic photos. Jimmy's autographs are an absolute nightmare to get in person nowadays...
