Any Idea What This Is From/What This Means?


So I have a huge issue with PSA and I also am trying to figure out what is written on this basketball""A quick background of the situation:  I started collecting when I was 5 but nothing too extravagant until around 23 yrs old (8 years ago).  Unfortunately, a contractor got me for over $90k and I need money to finish my home so I have been selling away my…

Star Trek Beyond -- World Premiere and Autographs with the Cast

As a movie critic, I got to the movie screenings a week or two before the films open. I get invited to the screenings in L.A. where the cast usually appear, but...I’m 100 miles away in San Diego. There’s something about driving that far, and dealing with Los Angeles traffic, that doesn’t seem so…

A Complete Collection: Is It Happiness or The Saddest Thing Ever?

I think Steve Buscemi nailed it in Ghost World as Seymour: "Well, you think it's healthy to obsessively collect things? You can't connect with other people, so you fill your life with stuff. I'm just like all the rest of these pathetic collector…

Autographs for Sale if...Your Name is BILL !!!

So, I just moved into a new place. It's always fun when you do that, to go through all your autographs and admire the things you've acquired over the years.

Anyway, I have about 100 albums...well, maybe 50...that I bought from an estate sale. They're all autographed "To Bill" or "Bill." They're usually followed by something along the lines of "best wishes" but usually, more like "Thank you so much for all of your support."

There are some big, big names in this collection, from…

Autographs in Movies and TV -- the Mistaken Identity Edition

I occasionally do blogs where I tell autograph stories that I see in movies or on TV shows, so...here are the latest.

In the new Woody Allen movie -- Cafe Society -- it takes place in the ‘30s. There’s lots of talk about the old movie stars of…

We Are Not In Control!

In today's 24-hour news cycle, a celebrity's career can be undone in the blink of an eye. The story doesn't even have to be true in some cases, but if it is reported, the public forms its own perception, usually without all the facts. It can even go to trial...yet the presumption of innocence doesn't count in the world of public opinion. No matter what the jury concludes, no matter the final verdict....people's minds are…

Joe Jackson -- He's the Man (just not with autographs)

Joe Jackson is amazing. What’s baffling to me is, if you Google his name, he’s third on the list of famous Joe Jackson’s. Now, I have no problem with Shoeless Joe Jackson being ahead of him. That’s a guy that should be in the baseball Hall of Fame, but the “Blacksox Scandal” ruined his career;…

The Memorabilia Formerly Known as EXPENSIVE -- The Prince Edition

We knew when Prince died, there’d be lots of items popping up for sale. Of course, on eBay, that meant a lot of forged Prince signatures. The higher end Prince items have gone to the bigger auction houses.

In March, Prince’s ex, Mayte Garcia, auctioned off a lot of…

In-person for June: Started bad, ended pretty good.

It was kind of a June swoon when talking about in-person autographs for me.  I had some success but it did not start out well.

The month began with my friend calling me at the last minute saying another photographer friend had an extra ticket to Peter Wolf’s show.  So I jumped in my car and headed to Cleveland to see Mr. Woofa Goofa put on an amazing show.  He actually signed a copy of “Lights Out” for a fan from the stage.  After the show, about 10 people were hanging out trying to…
