Questions about JSA

Two encounters I had with JSA.

I purchased a NY Giants cap on ebay which had three signatures on it.  The seller had sent it to JSA and two of the signatures were on their COA and mentioned in the offering.  I purchased the cap, knowing what the third signature was.  When I received the cap I called JSA giving them the COA info and a photo of the cap asking if I could send it to them to verify the third signature.  

Off it went in the mail.  A few weeks later I called and it…

Steiner COA's

Is anyone aware that the new ownership of Steiner Sports has created a situation on their website that if an old serial hologram number is entered, the number is noted as invalid?  There is no way of proving the item is actually an authentic Steiner product. It took hours of phone calls and harassing them to get a manager on the phone. I have sent them photos of items purchased from Steiner Sports in the past.  They stated they would look into the matter and get back to me.  It's been months…

Who Do You Collect?

As autograph collectors, most of us remember our first purchase.  If we do not, we remember the first purchase of our favorite person’s autograph.  At the time of that purchase, we probably did not expect to add additional autographs of that same person to our collection.  Why would we?  The purchase of a single autograph was an accomplished mission.

In most hobbies, the question of what people collect is often asked.  The question asked of autograph collectors is often more…

Autographed Card Sells For A Million Dollars!

Okay, so...maybe that headline of that was a little fib. The card actually sold for $922,500. And of course, we now know that it won’t be long until a card sells for more than the famous Honus Wagner card. It’s amazing to think a card from 2009, which isn’t that long ago, could warrant such a price.

It’s a Mike Trout Red Refractor Autograph, that was graded 9.5 out of 10. The price realized for this rookie card was…

The Day I Interviewed Fred Willard -- R.I.P.

I got a phone call from a friend I’ve been going to movies with for 25 years. I met him when he managed a movie theatre and I was a teenager who had a buddy working for him. We started playing racquetball together and, upon realizing I loved movies, our conversations after games usually revolved around actors and films we liked. I hadn’t heard from him in a month, but he called and said, “An actor we both love died.”…

Rod Stewart -- An Autograph and a Check

Who’s that knockin’ on my door?!!!!

I’ve always been a fan of Rod Stewart. Even when he dipped his toe into disco sounding songs in the late ‘70s. He’s also been a good autograph signer, if there aren’t a billion people around.

Here’s a classy move he pulled off recently. A nursing student named Natasha Jenkins was in a coma for 22 days from Covid-19. She did a video on…

The Day I Met LITTLE RICHARD

Back in the day when you could go into a diner and put a quarter in the jukebox and hear your favorite ‘50s or ‘60s song, and Autograph Magazine was in newsstands...I wrote about the day I met Little Richard. That was probably 15 years ago, so I’ll write a much shorter version of that story, since I woke up to find he has…

Val Kilmer -- Autographs Part II

I wrote the story before about how he wouldn't sign autographs for people that had to sit through his horrible "Citizen Twain" play/movie, even though they paid $100 for the "meet-and-greet" (and they couldn't talk to him, as the surgery rendered him without a voice).

He would sell you a signed picture for $75, he just wouldn't sign your items. Well,…
