Jimmy Stewart | Not so wonderful fakes

As a long time Jimmy Stewart collector, I have dozens of authentic autographs in my collection. From checks to photos to a baseball, I treasure them all.

However, one key piece has eluded me - that is a signed photo from It's a Wonderful Life

Jimmy Stewart was a generous signer and there is a good supply of authentically signed Stewart items readily available. As of now, there are approximately 420 James Stewart signed items on eBay from almost every movie he…

Authenticity opinions received through Facebook groups? Out!

Over the years I have heard many stories of how various Facebook Autograph Groups can be a total circus. Crazy members, fighting, bad opinions, stalking... you name it. In light of this, I have avoided them.

Attaining Nirvana III

Attaining Nirvana III

Guitars are by far the most popularly collected of the instruments. An important place to start when appraising guitars is to determine their intrinsic value. Most signed guitars have never been owned or played by the artists who sign them.…
