I recently noticed that one of my framed autographed photos is developing waves.  It may be from humidity, although there are other framed items in the room that are not being affected.  It may be…Continue

This is truly sad and unfortunate.  It is sad for the many Star Wars autograph collectors who were looking forward to this once in a lifetime opportunity.  It is also unfortunate that…Continue

Thanks, Mike. A number of upgrades are in the works. A graphic on the home page had been needed for years.

American Autograph Graffiti

Posted on May 29, 2023 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

I recently had an opportunity to meet Mike Edmonds at Star Wars Celebration in London, England.  Mike played Logray the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.  I own a Logray animation cel from the Star Wars: Ewoks TV show.  I considered having him autograph it.

I had two concerns about having the animation cel autographed.  My first concern was the fact that the animation cel is original art.  My second concern was that Mike Edmonds was…

How Far Would You Go? (Part 2)

Posted on April 28, 2023 at 8:22am 4 Comments

I once asked how far an autograph collector would travel to achieve an autograph that they would like to add to their collection.  Our hobby creates great opportunities for us to travel.  Baseball fans are known to travel all over the country for the purpose of visiting ballparks in cities across America.  Why not autograph collectors as well?

My wife and I recently traveled to London, England.  We attended Star Wars Celebration there.  It was amazing.  Palm Sunday at St.…

Autograph Signing Conditions

Posted on March 24, 2023 at 10:30am 2 Comments

Roger Waters is happy to sign sheet music, but he may not…

Worth the Wait

Posted on February 11, 2023 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

Some time ago, I purchased a Steven Spielberg autograph on a 14x11 photograph that was taken during the making of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.  Harrison Ford was also in the photograph.  I asked Eric F at Skyline Signatures to hold the piece for me, and to work on adding Harrison Ford’s autograph to it as well.

One of my greatest weaknesses is that I am very particular about my autograph collection.  I insisted that Harrison Ford autograph the photograph with a blue…
