Balls in the News -- The Tom Brady and Alex Rodriguez Edition

The Tom Brady situation is back in the news (both with the commissioner reviewing the case and his few scenes in the movie Ted 2). Yet instead of dissecting whether or not a 4-game suspension was too harsh for one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, I found this a much more interesting story.

One of the balls used in that famous game is up for auction on July 17th. Bidding will be starting at $25,000 – and it’s a must-have for any Patriots fan on your list.

To Kill An Auction -- The Harper Lee/Albert Einstein Edition

Harper Lee, the author of the classic “To Kill a Mockingbird,” was back in the news recently. Her second, much anticipated book “Go Set a Watchman” which deals with the characters 20 years later, is set to be released soon. Usually that makes collectables sell for a lot more. Often times a movie adaptation of a book will spike interest also.

Christie’s in New York…

Two more for the collection

My wife likes to play the slots, I like to play poker and table games.  The Hard Rock Rocksino does not have table games so my only interest in going there is to see a show, or to get a free buffet.  The plus side of her gambling there is that they will send her comp tickets to shows if they aren't selling well.  I will pretty much see anyone for free and have seen…

This Boy -- Found a Beatles Guitar!

Here in my hometown, there’s been a neat little discovery. For a music lover like me, it would be the equivalent of another discovering that nice painting your great grandmother always had hanging in her living room, was actually a Monet.

A music studio in in San Diego, Marc Intravaia’s Sanctuary Art and Music Studio, had a 1962 Gibson J160e guitar. They played it often,…

The White Album is...The Black Album. It's Autographed by who???

It was always fun listening to former prosecutor and bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi on various talk shows. He died at 80, and I couldn’t help think it was after hearing this latest bit of news: there’s an autographed copy of the White Album signed by the Manson family.

For those that don’t know, Bugliosi was the guy that successfully prosecuted Charles Manson…

3 concerts, 3 autographs, 3 different experiences

May is always a busy month for me.  Track keeps me very busy- I had 2 athletes make it to Regional’s and one just missed advancing to the state meet.  I also coordinate graduation at my school which is also hectic.  So autographs and shows are put on the backburner.

However the past couple of weeks, I have more than made up for it!

I did get to…

Autographs and Athletes -- The Johnny Manziel Edition

Johnny Manziel can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The Heisman Trophy winning quarterback was drafted 22nd by the Cleveland Browns. They traded to move up, hoping they had their franchise QB. Rumors were that he was a bit of a head-case and liked to party. He promptly ended up in rehab, and I’m guessing the Browns are now regretting this whole thing.

While at…
