I must've spent a fortune on pieces from them years ago -- and upon looking at them now, I see some that are bogus, some that are secretarials...and can't find the business anywhere.
They had great deals, but I was in my early 20s then. I didn't realize that -- most autographs that are sold from companies are bogus. Especially the ones that are great deals.
I sometimes like to throw little silly things on here, so it's not all about this forgery, that forgery...
So on David Letterman Friday night, the first guest was Herman Cain. And the hysterical red-headed announcer Alan Colter goes to commercial saying something along the lines of:
"I can't wait to get his autograph, in my famous pizza executives autograph book!"
I found these up for auction on Coach's Corner tonight... I put a number to the right of each image.

I ran into this autographed photo at a local dealer's booth in Colorado Springs. It comes with two COAs from different companies. I told the dealer that I wanted to have my sources (you guys) check it out before I made the purchase. What's the verdict on this nicely put together photograph? Are the signatures…Continue

I had a field day getting PGA Champions Tour players to sign golf balls for me at the recent year-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship held at the TPC Harding Park Golf Club in San Francisco.
