My boss has this Ike autograph ...any help?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pete Bendu Sep 23, 2018. 6 Replies

It's ink and not a stamp or print, along with that bit... I know it was framed in 1955. Celebrity graphs are more my speed, any presidential collectors want to weigh in so that I can tell him if it…Continue

1976 Yankees Ball? Munson? Martin? Berra? Howard? Catfish?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Woody2Shoes Dec 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Another ball thru the door today. I believe it is a 1976 Yankees team on a Lee MacPhail American League ball. Unfortunately other than Yogi who signed in ballpoint, the remainder of the ball seems to…Continue

Roger Maris or Not Roger Maris?

It seems to be a regular thing at the shop, someone comes in with a baseball that has seen better days, and they never seem to bother bringing in a ball with a Harrison Ford autograph or at the very…Continue

"Harrison is approached at all hours and in all conditions, the SW shot appear to be one of his "had a few too many libations" signatures.  It is not pretty and it my not pass 3rd party authentication, but it is likely real.  "

The Pen Test

Posted on December 24, 2016 at 11:24am 17 Comments

Let me start by saying I am not a scientist. I have been collecting for decades, in that time I have purchased autographs, done TTM requests, traveled to conventions, and hit the streets in search of every possible signature that I wanted. I consider myself to be pretty successful at this hobby, and for years my answer to one question has been the same.

What's the best pen to use for an autograph? For 2 decades my answer has been a blue permanent overhead transparency marker called…


Star Wars Autographs by the Numbers: Which are the Rarest?

Posted on December 18, 2016 at 2:00pm 41 Comments

Watching different Star Wars actors sign autographs for the last few decades, I started trying to figure out the numbers. How many pieces have been signed? How much value should be attached to each autograph? What are the prices that these actors charge vs. what the actual value should or could…


Autograph Common Sense

Posted on November 5, 2016 at 5:00am 46 Comments

Let's take some time to talk about autographs, sounds silly right? In the last few weeks a number of new & old collectors have popped in here on this site and elsewhere with items they want to know about...Is this real? What's the value? and so on. 

Many of us collect different things, some only collect sports, some mostly music, astronauts or presidents, whatever you collect this topic will fit into any category, for my purposes, seeing as I collect celebrity autographs, these…

A Complete Collection: Is It Happiness or The Saddest Thing Ever?

I think Steve Buscemi nailed it in Ghost World as Seymour: "Well, you think it's healthy to obsessively collect things? You can't connect with other people, so you fill your life with stuff. I'm just like all the rest of these pathetic collector…

Pete, I have messaged back and forth with Steve Cyrkin and he told me to post these on your board and ask about them. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Would you mind giving your opinion on this Heath Ledger a member is considering buying?

Hello Pete!
Lol, it's all about the signatures. I don't like to gamble either. We would go for a dinner and show. The wolf den shows were free, I don't know if they still are. I saw so many shows at the wolf den. I have a 45 sleeve or 2 signed by some of the members of Asia. I would have to find them, but I am most likely missing the same band member as you. I didn't go to that show, my friend got some signed for me. I have met Steve Howe a few times with members of yes. It was a lot of fun.
Thanks again!
