Sikorsky Document, Winged S for Rescue

While flying in the USCG I was naturally involved with many rescue flights. I have several 'Winged S' rescue awards with the original wet signature of Igor Sikorsky. I'm retired and moving out of country and would like to sell some of these.


Can anyone give me an idea on the value???? Can anyone give me some idea of who might be interested in buying them or taking these on consignment to sell? It's just time to start parting with these rare documents and let others enjoy…

Bobcat Goldthwait Autographs

Most of you might only know Bobcat from being that crazy '80s comedian that would scream and make weird sounds. Even back then, I thought he was hysterical. His material was always strong.


It was nice to see him get parts in movies (remember him trying to kill Bill Murray in Scrooged?) Oh, and speaking of "remembering him" in various parts, he said in his stand-up the other night when I saw him, that he loves signing autographs and is flattered anybody wants his autograph,…

Bon Jovi Guitarist Signing Autographs at Camp Pendleton

I was falling asleep on the couch, with CNN on.


They did a story, and the details I can remember before passing out:


Guitarist Richie Sambora did a concert for Marines at Camp Pendleton near San Diego. He also gave away 10 autographed guitars.


They were accoustic guitars that you can fold up and put in your napsack.


I'm a big rock 'n roll autograph collector, but Bon Jovi is a band I've never liked. I've heard they're all good…

Coach's Corner Sells Baseball Signed by Obama...and Jackie Robinson?

I used to get on Chris Williams' case about it all the time.

Better known as YouTube's TomTresh2, Chris would spend half of his famous expose' videos berating the buyers of obvious forgeries on eBay and Coach's Corner, calling them as much of the problem as the sellers.

I'd call and say, "Chris, please…

An Autograph in 30 MINUTES OR LESS

Jessie Eisenberg -- the Oscar nominated actor from The Social Network (who was also great in the smaller picture The Squid and the Whale), told a great autograph story the other day on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

He's in the new movie 30 Minutes or Less (which is very funny), and it has a number of comedians (Danny McBridge, Aziz, and Nick Swardson).

Well, Eisenberg said that he once sent Swardson a fan letter asking for his autograph and saying how he thought he was one of the funniest…

The Kids in the Hall comedy troupe -- AUTOGRAPHS

I have a large collection of autographs from The Kids in the Hall -- my favorite comedy troupe ever. I'll never sell them.


It seems every five years the guys tour -- and they're good about signing before and after shows (at one show, they came into the merch booth 40 minutes after the show to sign items and take photos).


I've gotten all my DVDs signed, an 8 x 10 from their movie Brain Candy.


Well, the other day I drove up to the Irvine Improv…

Baseball Hall of Famers That Are Willing To Sign FREE Autographs!!

Hi everyone,


Throughout the last few years, I have had the honor to meet approximately two-thirds of the living members of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Often, I meet this legendary gentlemen at card shows, where, of course, they are required to charge fees for their autographs. However, at other events, I have witnessed some of the living immortals of Cooperstown signing autographs-absolutely free of charge.


Of course, there are some Hall of Famers who either…

Hysterical fake

This has got to be my most favorite ebay fake ever! The absolute silliest forgeries I've ever seen where they don't even try an forge from the real signatures, they just used their imaginations and do the "autographs"any old way. Then they frame it with a plaque that lists the names wrong!


But this is a signed album from the rare Deep Purple line up that featured 'John Glover' and 'Ian Gillian'.


Rare indeed! Check it out:
