I'm watching a TMZ from a week ago, and I saw Anderson Cooper signing autographs. It's always amazing to see newscasters being swarmed for autographs. If I had a run in with a legend like Dan Rather or Walter Cronkite, unless I could think of something clever to have him personalize...otherwise, I wouldn't bother.
I saw the movie Precious tonight. It goes down as one of the worst titles in movie history (even surpassing "Ice Station Zebra"). The full title is something like:… Continue

On TV tonight, someone named "Guy" something or other (my girlfriend just yelled from the othe room "he's the guy they call 'the food dude'.")
He was doing the 10 at 10 questions, and I didn't hear the question. But he said his car had broken down once and he was on the side of the road. A bunch of young guys pulled over, and he thought they were going to help him. Instead, they just asked for autographs and left.
He also talked about two older women that were sitting in a… Continue

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Burbank, CA for a signing of my book, "Character Kings." Many of the customers bought multiple copies, telling me they intended to use the books as gifts for the movie lovers on their Christmas list.
Since it 'tis the season for giving, I would like to give Autograph readers the chance to win a copy of "Character Kings" signed by four of the great actors featured in the book:
James Karen (Return of the Living Dead, Wall Street, The Pursuit… Continue

No, I didn't spend Black Friday shopping for autographs and memorabilia. I slept in. I woke up 30 minutes ago, and ate some leftovers. Ahhhhh....life is good.
But I saw this collectable that I couldn't pass up on blogging about.
The Navy plans to give away the retired aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy. Yes, you heard correctly. "Give away".
Sure, a Kennedy signature (no matter how sloppy and hard to read he always made it), would be a nice stocking stuffer. But… Continue

There's a 20-DVD set of World Series films that you can buy for over two grand. The perfect stocking stuffer if you're related to Ken Burns!
A limited edition run of 100 sets was put together by Major League Baseball Productions, A&E, and Mounted Memories. And, this will contain 65 films from 1943 to 2008. That's 50 hours of baseball watching fun! (I wrote that sarcastically, not sure if you could tell)
There are also authenticated autographs of 12 Hall of Famers,… Continue

Update from Ari Lehman, the First Jason Voorhees:
FIRSTJASON and I recently returned from The Festival de Cine de Terror de Molins de Rei, near Barcelona, Spain where we performed a triumphant concert for the capacity crowd. Many major stars of the Spanish Cinema were there, including Jaume Balagueró, the director of the movie REC, who rocked out while FIRSTJASON performed onstage outside the festival theatre. The promoters created a giant Jason… Continue

I just saw Sarah Palin on Entertainment Tonight. Mary Hart asked her, as fans were waiting to meet her, if she ever waited in line to meet someone.
Palin seemed excited as she said she had.
And my mind went reelin'. Who could she have waited to meet? Nancy Reagan? Maybe Audrey Hepburn or Gloria Steinem. Oh, the possibilities were endless.
Nope. Nobody all that interesting. It was Ivana Trump. Palin said she was at a department store with a new… Continue

Are you confused by the title? Good.
I could probably make some joke about Michael Jacksons nose, before talking about Galileo's tooth and finger. But I've done so much of that recently.
By now you heard Michael Jacksons glove went for $450,000 in auction. Here are a few of the prices realized by some other items.
Johnny Cash Wilkanowski & Sons Airway “Fiddle” Guitar $37,500
Elvis Presley Jacket from “Speedway” $20,480

In honor of the champion, I will be GIVING away a n AUTOGRAPHED 2009 Sponsor Postcard / Hero Card. It will either be a 2009 KELLOGG'S / Carquest postcard signed by Mark Martin and Rick Hendrick ( Car Owner), or a 2009 LOWE'S… Continue

So, we all know that Ryan O'Neal was at Farrahs bedside as she died. They've always had an on again/off again relationship, and at the time, I thought it was great that he stepped up in her time of need.
Then he admits to trying to pick up on his daughter at the funeral. He didn't recognize her.
Then, Farrah doesn't leave him anything in the will. But leaves $100,000 to a lover she had, that Ryan kept away during her final days (someone with the last name Lott, but not… Continue

So, my girlfriend and I are watching TV. I see a commercial for the latest animated movie, Planet 51 (I'm sure our resident Sci Fi guy will give us some good info on that film). Anyway, I hear a character say to an astronaut, "You're an astronaut! Can I have your autograph?"
And a second later, my girlfriend said "Hey...Johnny Depp signed..." and I interrupted her to say "Yeah, he's such a great autograph signer. He's been on the cover of Autograph, as the Top signer."

I can't believe how much money they made auctioning off his items. I'm glad they did, because a lot of it went to the people he swindled.
A New York Mets baseball jacket with his surname stitched on the back, valued at around $700...sold for $14,500. The Mets team owners, Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, were among the many victims of Madoff.
His Hofstra College ring was valued at around $350, and went for $6,000.
The hotel ballroom in Manhattan, was filled with… Continue

I heard this on the local news this morning. It is unclaimed property funds by celebrities in Indiana. The first one one was Larry Bird for 80 bucks and the last one for John Mellencamp for 828 bucks. I know this has nothing to with autographs but thought it was interesting. To bad my name is not John Mellencamp!

In the November issue of this months Autograph magazine, there is something I noticed a little strange.
Sure the magazine offers 300 celebrity addresses with each issue, along with 5 guidelines to follow for more success.
Guideline number 5 states, " Be Patient! Responses may take weeks, months, or sometimes even LONGER.
There is a celebrity that the magazine gives an address for this month , a sci-fi writer, who's autograph I myself own.
It is famous… Continue
