Two things happened in the news the last two days, that can affect all of the autograph collectors. Let’s examine these things, shall we?
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry went to the Capitol on Tuedsay, testifying in favor of a bill aimed at restricting paparazzi from taking…Continue
I purchased a SRV signed 1989 Fender Stratocaster guitar from Antiquities. When I received it, it came with no COAs. I contacted Antiquities and a requested the Forensic Documents that they told me all of items have. They sent me the documents and behold no forensics, just a COA and a letter of provenance dated after the date I purchased the guitar. mmmmm. I…Continue
I was going through old boxes of stuff and I found this, it's a laminated piece of paper with what appears to be an autograph. It was with my brothers stuff and he used to really like baseball. I can't figure out who it is, or if it is even a baseball player. Anyone have any ideas?…Continue
Late night talk shows are the perfect place to hear autograph stories. You see, the talk show hosts and the stars, get sick of just coming on and promoting their latest movie and telling the same stories about what it was like to work with Meryl Streep.
Last night on The Tonight Show (which I watched only because Letterman and Kimmel were repeats), comedian and…Continue
Last year during the NBA Finals, he had shows that aired immediately after the games. One of the things he did was using an NBA star (I’m almost positive it was Shaq), to prank fans that were lined up for a fake autograph session Kimmel had…Continue

I went from being a DJ at a classic rock station, to being a writer. One of the first editors I had had to keep reminded me that when I talk about bands, others won’t know the songs or musicians the way I do. So before I start this story on my quest to get all of The Kinks signatures, here’s a list of their songs that you might know: Lola, You Really Got Me, Tired of…Continue
I always like when things pop up that celebrities did when they were young. A lot of Buddy Holly’s homework has popped up over the years. I’ve also seen homework from a few other celebrities, but since Buddy Holly had that geeky look with the thick glasses – and since he was a 50s singer – something seemed more interesting about a piece of school work from him.
And since we’ve all seen lots of drawings, doodles, and paintings from famous folks, there’s something so intriguing about…Continue

A couple of baseball items that were just auctioned off that sound rather interesting. A baseball glove that Jackie Robinson wore in the 1955 and 1956 World Series fetched $373,000 at the Steiner Sports Memorabilia Auction. The same seller also parted with a Louisville Slugger bat which was used in the 1956 season. That went for $114,000. The same buyer purchased both items, but didn’t identify himself. It’s probably safe to say, if burglars break into his place – he won’t be hitting them…Continue

My name is Steve i live in Manchester UK. I'm new to the site and was wandering if there was anyone who could help me identify an autographed baseball mitt i have. If you take a look at the photo i would be really grateful.I've checked golden glove winners for 1999 but had no joy. If anyone can help me out that would be fantastic.

Jay Mohr does the best sports on the air. If you’re a sports fan, and you can get him in your city, tune in.
The first time I saw Mohr was on Saturday Night Live. He did great impersonations (Christopher Walken, Joe Pesci, etc); even though in the book Live from New York, he makes it sound like he wasn’t so successful on that show.Continue
