Winter Success Graphing in Cleveland

It is always tougher to graph in the winter in northern cities.  Opportunities are fewer and it really has to take a big name band to get me to stand out in freezing temperatures to see if they will sign.

For whatever reason, fewer bands made stops in Cleveland this past winter.  Actually, that was fine by me, although I have still managed to go to eleven concerts so far this…

Derek Jeter Forged/Signed 1994/1995 Counterfeit Upper Deck Baseball Card: Part 2

I began noticing these obvious forgeries months ago on Ebay, but with Ebay heavily-populated with forgeries, I really didn't think much of exposing them until I began observing them in numbers and that's when I knew I had to expose them.

Immediately below is a link to Part 1 of "Derek Jeter Forged Counterfeit 1994/1995 Upper Deck Baseball Cards."…

Two Quick Autograph Stories -- Danny DeVito and Steph Curry

I was watching Danny DeVito on The Talk today (can somebody explain to me why these talk shows with all women are so popular? Both "The Talk" and "The View" are just awful). Anyway, his new movie "Dumbo" looks great. And, he was in my favorite sitcom of all-time -- Taxi. He started talking about the show and he said how he had a lot of stuff around him that a…

Interviewing Dick Dale -- King of the Surf Guitar

Most younger folks (those under 40) probably only know Dick Dale from his great tune “Misirlou” being used to start Pulp Fiction off; or, they know the song that samples it by the Black Eyed Peas (in a concert I saw once, Dale said that Black Eyed Peas song made him enough money to buy a room edition on his home).

Those of us old fogies, or guitar lovers, know Dale as the “King of the Surf Guitar.” I was saddened…

Val Kilmer -- A Horrible Evening Spent With Him

Val Kilmer is an amazing talent. The stories of his early days are legendary. He was the youngest actor to ever get into Juilliard acting program. He was offered lots of film roles while he was there, and did stage work before hitting the big screen.

It’s hard to pick your favorite role of his, because so many were great. Here in San Diego, most locals would pick his Ice Man character in “Top Gun” since it was…

Conor McGregor Arrest, James McAvoy Autographed Shirt

I thought I’d combine a handful of different things that are going on. The first, is what I heard about on a sports radio show. For a few days, they were talking about “cameos.” Now, as a movie critic, I think of a cameo as the point in a movie where a famous person comes on screen for only one scene. Well apparently, there’s a website (cameo.com) where you can pay to have famous people say a message to you, or for a friend/family member, for that special…

Donald Trump Autographs Bibles

President Trump toured the area where a tornado killed over 20 people in Alabama. And, one of those bizarre autograph stories happened. Now, the last time I wrote about a weird autograph story involving Trump, it was when he held the photos up of folks that were killed by illegal immigrants. After he was done speaking, and holding up those huge photos, he autographed them and gave them to the family members. Now, it’s one thing if the family asked him to sign…

Autographed Rock T-Shirts -- The Doors and Queen Edition

I just read in the paper this morning that Guy Webster died. Most of you won’t know that name. He was a great rock photographer. He did The Doors first album. He did the photo of the Mamas & Papas that has them all in the bathtub (he said they were all so stoned, it was even hard to do that). Dunhill record label producer…
