Babe Ruth Autographed Bat Gary Cooper GAI Coach's Corner Auctions

I was scanning some of the Coach's Corner Auctions and I spotted the below Babe Ruth autographed bat The usual piece of junk. As I'm looking at it, I remember seeing it on Ebay.

Ebay eventually removed it.

So evidently, after the seller (ddrproductions) had his item removed by Ebay, he then consigned it to Coach's Corner.  You would have thought the seller, after his item was removed by Ebay due to authenticity concerns, would have done the right thing and had…

Zach Galifianakis Talks about Will Ferrell NOT signing on David Letterman

Our magazine had put former Saturday Night Live comedian Will Ferrell on our worst list. I’ve heard from many collectors that he just doesn’t sign. And I was thrilled the night he was on Conan O’Brien and held a copy of AUTOGRAPH. Conan asked him about why he was so bad at signing autographs, and Ferrell did this bit where he said it was impossible for him to sign. He then held up his hand, showing an elaborate hook he had instead of a hand.

Well, Zach is out promoting the movie THE…

Ray Bradbury autograph

I have a Ray Bradbury autograph. He wrote a brief message to author Harlan Ellison, along with some funny drawings, on his personal stationary. Can anyone suggest what a reasonable asking price would be?

My Orion Festival/Metallica experience and killer signing score!!

Dare to Dream Big


“No life ‘til leather, we’re gonna kick some ass tonight!” These prophetic words are the first verse of their first song, ‘Hit the Lights.’ Little did anybody know just how much ass they would kick as these words have since ushered in three decades of heavy metal madness. Throughout their career they’ve done just about…

Opinions, Insight and Knowledge Needed for Kurt Cobain - Nirvana Autographed Details Magazine

Hi All:

First, thank you in advance for the opportunity to pick your brains and gain your insight for this autographed November 1993 Detail Magazine signed by Kurt Cobain and the other Nirvana Members.  What I can tell you regarding the magazine is that is has been owned by the same person since 1994. It does have a COA, but from Sports Alley which is dated 1994 and made out to the uncle of the family member who owns it.  The magazine is in unread condition, the spine is not…

James Stewart - suspected forgery style alert

Over the past few months I have noted an explosion of this James Stewart signature style on eBay. It seems as if some sellers have an endless supply of these signatures and they all have the same unusual characteristics.

  • A sharp, "jerky" appearance
  • Letters smashed together with poor letter definition
  • Odd spacing between letters
  • Never personalized
  • Many of them do not appear to be on glossy photos... they are on cardstock prints

Babe Ruth Mickey Mantle Jackie Robinson Forgery Forgeries Totally Ridiculous

This is the most ridiculous Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Jackie Robinson set of forgeries I have ever seen!!!

I don't even know how to describe this piece of garbage.  We've all posted some ugly forgeries on this site, but this one takes the cake.

It's from Ebay seller bigfoot471.  Looks like a three-year old penned these forgeries.…

Morgan Freeman

I collect autographed golf balls as a hobby. I would like to get movie actor Morgan Freeman's autograph on a golf ball, but need his home address. I know that Morgan is an avid golfer. Even if someone knows where Morgan golfs, would help me. Appreciate any help I can get from Autograph Magazine subscribers.  Joe Galiardi, author, Hooked on Autographs.
