Rock Legends Disappoint in Times Square

Hi everyone,

We're very lucky in New York to have a large variety of concerts to attend and/or collect autographs at on any given day. We are equally lucky to have such an amazing variety of venues to do so at. One popular venue is BB King's Blues Grill in Times Square. The club is often a venue for tribute bands, but, on occasion, some of rock and roll's true legends perform there. In fact, in the past year, just by waiting at the stage door there, I have gotten in-person glimpses of…

OK GO and Modern Family Autograph Stories

Modern Family is one of the new shows that's actually pretty good.

On tonights episode, one of the kids reads their siblings diary. A fight insues and one sister ruins the other sisters autographed poster of Maya Angelou, which she said she cherished more than anything in the world. She also mentions how long she had to stand in line to get it signed.

We can all feel your pain.

In my latest issue of SPIN MAGAZINE, they did a quick interview with…

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's...a million dollars!

One of the readers here, Bob, emailed me asking if I heard about a Superman comic book that sold for a million bucks.

Having collected basketball cards as a kid, I remember thinking how crazy it was when a Honus Wagner baseball card would sell for that amount. Heck, a Bill Russell rookie card I bought for $45, was once deemed the most valuable basketball card at over a thousand bucks. For some reason, that number dropped significantly years ago.

Any collectable…

AACS Autographs

I just had a question for anyone who might know. Does anybody know anything about AACS Autographs on the web? I did some research and could not find any derogatory comments about them, but their prices are so low I can't believe that the items are real. I would love to hear from somebody about this. Thanks.

Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown...and it's Dom Monaghan that gets violent with autograph collector!

On TMZ Monday night, they showed Charlie Sheen leaving his fathers place in Los Angeles. He signed lots of autographs, and took photos with every fan that wanted one. Nobody asked him about his recent court case, and I'm guessing, he was on his best behavior with the fans as a PR move. But hey -- if more autograph collectors can score this way, cool.

Musician Chris Brown, best known for beating the tar out of Rhianna, was seen leaving a place and taking photos with fans. When…

It is a shame

Until reading this blog, I had no idea such a gimmick existed: getting a notable to sign a blank sheet of paper, then manipulating it with photo of the signer. Good grief, why do people want to undermine the integrity of signed-photos?

Before he died, Frank Sinatra did a CD of duets with more contemporary singers performing some of his standards. I later found out all he did was lay down his track of the song, then the contemporary singer recorded his/her track, and the two…

Leonardo DiCaprio Signs Autographs

On TMZ, a few different times this week, I've seen him signing autographs outside of various clubs and TV shows.

I swear, that show is the best for seeing celebs and what their signing habits are.

The staff of TMZ said he doesn't usually sign, let alone talk, but with Shutter Island coming out tonight, he's doing the smart PR thing.

Spring Training

Hi all,

For the past few years, I've been going to Florida each February for spring training. I've obtained autographs from such stars as Jason Giambi, Tommy Lasorda, and Randy Johnson this way. This year, however, practices started a bit late-and therfore I was only able to go to two camps. The Phillies camp in Clearwater was very spread out-meaning little to no opportunity for autographs. I didn't see a single player sign at all. At the Tigers camp in Lakeland, however, there was a…

Tiger Woods Written Apology Speech

Today February 19, 2010, Tiger Woods came out of his almost "Yeti-ish" self imposed allusive 3 month hibernation, and read what looked like a 4 page apology letter to the cameras, the media, and fans (and sponsors) everywhere. In a world of very few handwritten lyrics, personal and political historical documents, various original contracts, celebrity divorce decrees, and other very significant and most unique one of a kind documentation, today's actual witten speech seemingly would already have… Continue

How one autograph changed my life for the better.

On October 25, 1989, at the inaugual Transamerica Senior Championship, golf legend Arnold Palmer signed a golf ball for me.

My golf balls collection count is over 240 and growing practically by the week. Arnie's autograph golf ball begat my collection that begat my recently published book, Hooked on Autographs.

Trading Memorabilia for a House

About 30 miles north of San Diego, a woman was making national news for placing an ad for a husband. She was in her late 40s and losing her health insurance. A medical condition meant $3,000 in pills each month.

Don't feel too bad for her. She had thousands of proposals and will probably work this all out just fine.

Now comes a guy in San Diego that wants to exchange his baseball cards and other sports memorabilia, for a house. He put on ad on Craigslist, and…

PGA Tour Golfer Contracts Regarding Signing Golf Balls

Today I attended a practice round at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. As a collector of autographed golf balls for the past twenty years, I stood outside the fence at Pebble's driving range waiting to pick out my targets. Standing next to me was a lady with her 5-year-old son who was there for the same purpose -- to obtain autographs on golf balls. When I got there, the little boy had two signed balls. One from actor John O'Hurley and the other from another actor, Don Cheadle. I saw… Continue

This Song's For You (from Jason Mraz)

One of the most underrated songwriters ever, is named Stew. He used to be in this little indie band out of L.A. called The Negro Problem. The band sounded a little to pyschedlic sometimes, but on his solo records, Stew wrote some of the best songs in music history.

He's living in Berlin now, after the success of his Broadway play Passing Strange (which was filmed by Spike Lee).

Anyway, he used to do something on his website where you could hire him to write and…
