What do Babe Ruth and Charlie Sheen Have in Common? (other than smoking, partying, porn stars...)

I try to do blogs about current news related things involving autographs, as well as personal stories I have to share. This is one of those blogs where I talk about a current news story with some interesting items to be auctioned, and a bit of a rant by me.…

Balls in the News -- The Tom Brady and Alex Rodriguez Edition

The Tom Brady situation is back in the news (both with the commissioner reviewing the case and his few scenes in the movie Ted 2). Yet instead of dissecting whether or not a 4-game suspension was too harsh for one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, I found this a much more interesting story.

I Don't Believe in Zimmerman...

A Florida judge said that George Zimmerman, the “vigilante” that shot and killed Trayvon Martin, can’t remove his GPS tracking device and can’t leave Seminole County. Zimmerman is currently out on a $1 million dollar bond. It wasn’t this story involving the 28-year-old defendant that I found so interesting yesterday. It was one from a few weeks earlier.

Zimmerman and his attorneys came up with an idea to help pay his legal costs and make some money – he’d sell autographs. The defense…
