Why You Shouldn't Sign a Breast...or any other body part

I was talking to rapper Ice Cube one time, and told him I thought about bringing an empty ice cube tray to have him autograph. He looked at me like I was nuts, but hey...I think sometimes things like that are more interesting. Wouldn’t it be cool to have Willie Nelson’s autograph on a package of rolling papers? Anyway, I asked Ice (that’s what his friends call him) what the weirdest thing was he’s ever signed. He got this big grin and said,…

Is This Blog About....Paul McCartney or Donald Trump?

I was tempted to blog about the autograph Paul McCartney signed on the famous “Carpool Karaoke” segment on James Corden’s Late Night show. They drove down Penny Lane, while singing along to Penny Lane on the radio. When taking a selfie at the wall with the street sign “Penny Lane” he autographed it. I wonder if somebody will tear down that wall to get to that signature on a brick [fun fact: when I took the Beatles tour in Liverpool, they said they stopped…

Space...The Final Frontier...for this blog

I find this story interesting for two reasons, One, it involves an incredible collectable. A signed letter from Neil Armstrong along with a vial of moondust. Two, it involves a proactive lawsuit, which I never understand. The last time there was one of those, I think it involved Robin Thicke (being thick) proactively suing the estate of Marvin Gaye so they couldn’t claim his song “Blurred Lines” was a rip off of “Gotta Give it Up”  (it didn’t work, as the Gaye…

HUSBAND AND WIFE SIGNATURES -- Why do they look so similar?

This might be the dumbest blog I ever write. It might also be one of the shortest. But...you know how people say that you start to look like your pet dog? And usually those stories have photos of people with their dogs, and you laugh endlessly.

Well, I've noticed something over the years, being an…

Graphing in Cleveland in May

May turned out to be a very good month for adding some autographs.  

First up, Michael Keaton came to town to speak at my alma mater, Kent State.  We got him coming off the plane and he was very nice.  However, he did refuse to sign anything Batman, Spiderman or any action figures.  He passed me over a couple of times, I then pulled out "Birdman" and he passed that over a couple of times.  I was right in front of him and said "Michael, you should have won the Oscar for this role."  He…

The Wizard of Au...tographs

My favorite “Wizard of Oz” autograph story involves a reader of Autograph, but I can’t remember his name. When our magazine was actually at newsstands, I met with Steve Cyrkin one day, when he had a booth set up to get subscribers at one of those autograph shows at the Marriott…

One of the Biggest Forgers Ever -- Made Into a Movie

Elvis Presley’s first Las Vegas contract is up for auction. I thought about blogging that story, but I’m so burned out on Elvis items. Instead, as a movie critic, I thought I’d do a couple movie related things.

In the new documentary “Always at…
