Well, for the third time in approximately six months, Ebay has removed one of my listings.
This happened today, January 25, 2014.
First, below is the message I received from Ebay.
After reviewing your eBay account, it appears that you have violated eBay's Trademark Violation - Unauthorized Item policy. As a result, we've taken the following actions…Continue
Here is a link to a nice site of authentic Star Wars signatures. This guy has a nice collection.
Can certain historical situations regarding signees increase the value of their autographs? The reason I ask is because I recently discovered something very interesting within my 9/11 aftermath paper ephemera and autograph collection. Here my story:
I came across a program I hadn't looked at for awhile signed by then-United Nations Representative of Egypt, Ahmed Aboul Gheit. I spotted him in the audience of talk in February 2002 by military historian and novelist Caleb Carr about…
It’s funny how when you live in a city with somebody famous, you take them for granted. For autograph collectors, you probably got their autograph at one point, but you see them at so many functions you lose interest.
Here in San Diego, there are many people that are huge all over the world, but I’m at many events with. Those would include sports Hall of Famers like Bill…Continue
I'm looking to attend a couple upcoming book signings at Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ. I know you can't get anything signed other then the book at the actual book signing itself but I was wondering if any of the featured signers will sign outside of the store prior to or after the book signing? I've got a Peyton Manning signed Super Bowl XLI game ball that I'd love to get Tony Dungy to sign on Feb. 4th. Does anyone have any first hand info on whether or not getting stuff signed outside of…Continue
It just occurred to me that I don't believe I've posted this here yet, but Mark Baker, one of our forum members, is a major U2 fan who has met the band members on multiple occasions. This documentary is about him, and includes stories about his autograph endeavors among his other experiences as a fan, primarily on the 360 Tour.
does AUTOGRAPHPROS.COM have a reputation as being solid with they're autographs or not? and would the printed COA from them, with a hologram type sticker applied to the guitar (with matching serial # on the COA provided) be enough provenance for resale? (trying to consider the reputation of AUTOGRAPHPROS.COM -which I'm not sure of) - and wondering if anyone has some input into…Continue
I am looking for some help. I recently bought a Adrian Gonzalez bat and a Peyton Manning item and both were denied by PSA/DNA. Is this sellers stuff legit? I typed in there old name on here rightcoastcollectibles and it seems they have been bashed on here a lot with global authentics items. Also the name dirty_water_ink came up a lot to so I did some more research and they are now flagship_collectibles and have very similar items as the seller I bought my stuff from…Continue

Had an interesting experience yesterday that I thought I would share. I met about 6 celebrities yesterday. Not a bad day considering it was bone cracking cold outside. I thought my feet would actually fall off, but I digress. After Mariska Hargitay and Will Forte, I met Kellen Lutz, the star of the new Hercules. Really super nice guy. He signed and took pictures with everyone. He did however require that everything be signed in black. I prefer blue, because it is a much bolder signature and…Continue
The first time I heard The Everly Brothers was as a kid watching Happy Days on TV in the ‘70s. I loved their harmonies and ballads. As a teenager, I was looking for a song called “Poor Jenny” from a German opera, and found a song of theirs with the same title. I had forgotten how much I liked them, and got a CD compilation of all their hits.
At the NAMM event in…Continue
