About Me

What kind of member are you? (Check as many as apply.)
Collector, Other
What would you like to tell us about yourself, your collecting, or business.
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?
What are your areas of interest?
Sports, Books/Literature, Modern Hollywood and Stage, Classic Hollywood and Stage, Music
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.
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).
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.

Kanye West -- Things go South with Autograph Collector

Posted on January 13, 2022 at 10:06pm 0 Comments

TMZ reported tonight that an autograph seeker kept asking Kanye (or "Ye" as his friends call him) for his autograph. West punch the man twice, and he hit the ground. Cameras were only turned on once the guy was on the ground, so no word on if he was flopping, or he really got knocked down. Either way, cops were called.

And, this guy (who was probably an autograph dealer, not a fan), is probably now looking at a big payday.

Home Alone Autograph -- leads to strangulation !

Posted on December 23, 2021 at 3:19pm 3 Comments

It was all over the news that an actor in the movie Home Alone (I believe he played the brother), was arrested for strangling and hitting his girlfriend. Of course, alcohol was involved (he had consumed a bottle of wine and 10 shots). But what most people don't know was involved was -- an autograph!

Two women had approached him at the bar asking for his autograph. The girlfriend had the signatures in her purse (I think on 8x10 photos, but I'm not positive). She gave one away, and that…


Paul McCartney will NO LONGER sign autographs

Posted on October 26, 2021 at 6:49am 12 Comments

Someone sent me a story on it. He went on and on about how he looks miserable in selfies people take, and doesn't understand why his name on a piece of paper is important, as "you know who I am, I know who I am."  (Kenny Rodgers used to say the same thing).

I remember about 15 years ago, Paul refusing to take photos with people, so...he's had that stance for awhile.

The Greatest Autograph Collection Ever

Hope everything with you is fine. I picked a keen interest on you after going through your profile. This is why I have deemed it necessary to write you immediately to disclose a financial issue that will be highly beneficial to both of us. However, it may be difficult to express myself properly here, since this is a public site. Could you please get back to me on ( for the full details about the transaction if you wish to become my foreign partner in this project.
Have a nice day.

Stephen Bollin.

Hi Josh in LA it's James in Canada. Wanted to say thank you for your time on my Lennon/Harrison autograph... like Roger Epperson himself told me, you've really got to be holding these REAL authenticated autographs in your hands to appreciate how wonderful they indeed are...the scan doesn't do them justice! BEING DOUBLE AUTHENTICATED (May 2019 and with fresh eyes again in July 2020) by the Professiional Expert Roger Epperson REAL is all the AUTHENTICity you need! Best, JAMES

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.

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.
