The Blood Blog -- Stan Lee and KISS Edition

I was trying to decide what to blog about today. I had heard that Zsa Zsa Gabor had a huge auction going on. That wacky guy she was married to was selling off a lot of her stuff. Yet I don’t think there’s enough interesting in her. The late actress hasn’t been relevant in decades. And the last time she made the news was for slapping…See More

"That's funny. One of my reporter co/workers, interviewed Charles Barkley and had him leave an outgoing message about how they were out partying and she'd get home when she gets home. It was hysterical."

Three Autographs I Could've Gotten -- R. Lee Ermey, Milos Forman, and Corey Feldman

Everyone knows R. Lee Ermey, even if you don’t recognize that name. He first came onto my radar when I was in high school and “Full Metal Jacket” came out. He was the intimidating drill sergeant in everyone’s face. He was in the “Toy Story” movies and about 75 other films. It was the late ‘90s and a few of the radio stations I…See More

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector, Other
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Sports, Books/Literature, Modern Hollywood and Stage, Classic Hollywood and Stage, Music
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
For some reason, as a kid and teenager, sports autographs were my favorite. Especially basketball, as I grew up playing it. But as I became older, I started gravitating more towards singers and musicians I was a fan of.

My collection consists of thousands and thousands of autographs. Everything from CDs and albums, to movie posters, musical instruments as well as the usual 8 x 10 signed photos.

I have a lot of pieces that are very valuable, and I hate the fact that they are stored very poorly in my friends garage. But the fact is, I've run out of space at my own house. And even though I love collecting, I don't think they look good on the wall. I don't want my home looking like a Hard Rock Cafe, I'd rather have nice art work on the walls and things like that. So, that means all me pieces are just sitting in the garage or on my desk, etc. It drives my girlfriend crazy, but I can't complain. Many times, she's with me on my quest to score the next autograph.
What is your level of expertise?
Professional
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
It would be a tie between a Morrison Hotel album, that is not only autographed by all four of The Doors, but also the photographer of the album (Henry Diltz), as well as John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful), who plays harmonica on Roadhouse Blues. My goal is to have it signed by everyone that had anything to do with the record, although, a few of (producer Paul Rothchild, guitarist Lonnie Mack) have died, so I might be done with it already.

I'm also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best).
Why do you collect?
I think it's fun. But I'm so glad that as I've gotten older (I'm turning 40, the same year as Woodstock is!) I've chilled out. If I don't have an item for a celebrity, I don't rush up and bug them. Or if I meet someone famous, I'm not in a panic looking for a Sharpie. And it bothers me if I'm in LA getting an autograph, and some of the ebay dealers are doing exactly what I hate -- pushing and shoving, being rude, getting 20 head shots signed, and they aren't even a fan of the person that they're hounding.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
If it's an actor -- Marlon Brando. A musician -- Jim Morrison. A historical figure -- Jesus Christ, although it would probably be hard to authenticate, huh? I'd also make him turn my Evian bottle into a nice red wine.

Muscle Men Autographs -- Arnold and Russell Edition

Posted on April 8, 2018 at 6:45pm 2 Comments

There have been a number of clips of Arnold Schwarzenegger getting out of the hospital after his open-heart surgery, and he’s signing lots of autographs. I think it’s funny that the first thing he said when he woke up from surgery is “I’m back!”…

Beast of Burden -- A Tough Few Autographs I Got Once

Posted on March 13, 2018 at 10:57am 3 Comments

It’s always weird when I’ve gotten an autograph from somebody that dies soon after. There have been many people I could’ve gotten signatures from, and I decide not to put the effort into going to the venue -- and they die a few months later. And I regret those. One of the most regretful of those moments comes when I worked as a DJ at a radio station and I brought winners backstage at a concert. It was Joe Cocker and Stevie Ray Vaughn. We were told by the…

A History Lesson with Collectibles -- George Washington Hair and a copy of the Declaration

Posted on February 22, 2018 at 10:29am 0 Comments

A rare parchment copy of the Declaration of Independence made in Washington in the 1820s for James Madison has been found. It’s one of 51 that are known to exist, and if you’re interested in buying it, well...you’re too late. Billionaire philanthropist David M. Rubenstein snapped it up.

It’s a facsimile made from the original handwritten calf skin document crafted in Philadelphia in 1776. It even bears the image of…

Yes I'm sure. The auction I bought mine at in new York said only 25 were signed with all four boys. 25 signed would still give 25 different people or radio stations a chance to own one. I'm not selling mine. I doubt a radio station would just get tossed one. Perhaps it was a copy your station had. Or maybe someone there did buy one. Jacky Smith (head of Queen's fan club) had approved it as being one of only a handful signed. She didn't know how many exactly.

I read on your page you are "also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best)."

That is a great piece. Do you have a picture of it posted anywhere? What about the Doors album? I'd love to see both of them.

hi Josh, whats your personal opinions on authentic I Dream of Jeannie bottle props?
i've seen a 2nd season sold at Butterfields, a 1st season sold at Profiles in History.
and another 2nd season sold on eBay.
i've always wanted one, i know there expensive, but if the person whos selling them,
i would commit/agree to a standard payment each month to pay it off, because its my 'DREAM' to own an original jeannie prop bottle.
p.s. do u know any stores, and/or online stores that sell 'replicas' for a good/inexpensive? i hope u had an awesome July 4th!
-Jason.

Josh, I deleted Myron Ross's blog post by mistake when I went to edit a misspelling in the title, sorry. I let him know so he could repost.
At 10:42am on May 26, 2010, Jason Boyd said…
thank you so much. & i have 1 other question...
i met former Vice President Al Gore & his wife about 7 years ago at a booksigning
for their book i believed it was titled 'joined at the heart' ...
i bought a local newspaper ''the Raleigh News & Observer''
& the front page & headline story said:
'Al Gore will not run again for re-election'

he and his wife gladly signed it.
since its an important headline with a picture and its signed by the both of them, would that be a rare item, as suppose to a signature etc. ?

could you help me out with some advice about an autograph?
i obtained it in person, and i know its real (duh) anyways, i'd like to have your thoughts as in demand/rarity for this item...
used in concert & signed drum sticks by Britney's Drummer
signed tour glowstick by her entire band.
i would be honored to have your opinions in regards to these two unique items.
thanks,
-Jason.
