Graphing in Cleveland in May

May turned out to be a very good month for adding some autographs.  First up, Michael Keaton came to town to speak at my alma mater, Kent State.  We got him coming off the plane and he was very nice.  However, he did refuse to sign anything Batman, Spiderman or any action figures.  He passed me over a couple of times, I then pulled out "Birdman" and he passed that over a couple of times.  I was right in front of him and said "Michael, you should have won the Oscar for this role."  He stopped…See More

Getting Some Autographs At Rock Hall Inductions

I'm fortunate to live between two major Halls of Fame.  This year, the Rock Hall Inductions were held in Cleveland and will alternate between New York every other year.  I feel that they should be in Cleveland every year, but I guess we will take what we can get.Although this years class wasn't as good as the '15 class when they were last held in Cleveland, but I figured I would try and add to the collection.I heard that the Cars came in town early to rehearse for their performance.  So I ran…See More

Adding A Few In February

Posted on March 8, 2018 at 3:46am 3 Comments

February was pretty cold in Ohio but I still managed to add a few. 

I don't normally collect basketball but when Bobby Knight returned to his high school for a fundraiser for the local YMCA, I couldn't pass it up.  For a donation, you got to hear Bobby tell stories about his high school days as well as things from through out his career.  He stayed after and signed everything for everyone that wanted an autograph.  He really seemed interested in the fans and asked questions while he…

New Year- New In-person Experiences

Posted on January 28, 2018 at 5:38am 3 Comments

December was a very slow month for me as I only attended one show (Will Hoge- who is a great singer-songwriter!).  I ended up having hernia surgery (they found six in my stomach) so that slowed me down for a couple of weeks.

January came around and I decided to put into shoot Rick Springfield's concert which was about an hour and a half away from my house.  A little far for me, but I was jonesin' to go to a show.  Rick Springfield is more than "Jessie's Girl,"  he is a great guitarist…
