Pedigree Autograph Collections

Last month, I shared a story about the first autograph that I ever collected.  That got me thinking about all of the many people who have devoted decades to the hobby of autograph collecting.

When You Should NOT Ask for Autographs -- M. Night Edition

As a movie critic, I often have the opportunity to interview actors and directors. And sometimes, after the interview, I'll ask them to sign a DVD of a favorite film of mine.

Meeting Olvia Newton-John

I wrote a story about meeting Olivia Newton-John for one of my local newspapers. But, I left out the part about me getting her to sign my Xanadu album (which she signed upside down, and apologized for). I didn't want it to come across like I was a big autograph hound or something.

And when I talked to the cast of Grease, I had them all sign a "Grease" soundtrack album that I had bought already signed by Olivia and Travolta.

So, here's the story (and I'm sticking to…
