A 3"x5" card signed by Martin Luther King, Jr. Some even age toning but still very fine condition. His autograph is bold, simple and kind. Just like the man himself, his autograph is symbolic of his nature. Signed the same year of his assassination makes this haunting piece a gem for any…Continue

ATTAINING NIRVANA II
The relatively short career of Nirvana limits the number of items available for collectors, particularly items that are originals. Buyers seeking original signed items should be aware that the rarity of these items has increased the likelihood of fraudulent items being sold on the market. Before purchasing originals signed items, buyers should research the item and ask sellers to thoroughly substantiate their claims of authenticity. This often includes any…Continue

As a kid that grew up playing sports, my favorite autographs to get were the athletes. Yet it was always so hard.

I was supposed to do an interview with Spinal Tap, as they were doing a new record and tour…Continue
