The Hugh Hefner Auction

One of my autograph buddies always makes the two-plus hour drive to L.A. for autographs. Sometimes I hit him up to get me a signature, if it’s a book signing or something like that. I remember once he called me at a book signing and said, “For $50, they have this book that shows every Playboy centerfold, starting with the first issue.”

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was signing them, and I said “Nah. I’m not that into…

George Zimmerman's Gun, Thomas Jefferson's Hair -- Which Would You Want?

I’ve never liked the idea of buying hair. Wait...I should probably explain that. I’m not talking about the way Elton John bought hair for $28,000 and had it surgically attached to his head. I’d certainly consider that, if I didn’t end up looking like Donald Trump…

He met a number of rock stars (mostly in the punk scene), and had some great photos and autographs. The best autograph in his collection came as a fluke. He was working a part-time job as a librarian…

Ryan Gosling's Jacket -- You Can Own It!

Some autograph collectors only want signed memorabilia. There’s nothing wrong with 8x10s signed by your favorite actor, but they’re a dime a dozen. You can go into Pink’s and buy a hot dog, and looking at a wall full of signed pictures.

 

A script signed by your favorite TV show, or cast members of…

Napoleon's Hair Sells -- $13,000

A picture is worth a thousand words...a hair is worth thousands of dollars.

I believe it was Napoleon who came up with the phrase (about the picture, not the hair).

A British soldier stationed with Napoleon Bonaparte on St. Helena, had a number of items he passed down to family members, who recently made $100,000 selling them at an auction.

A sketch of Napoleon on his deathbed -- $14,600.

A diary that had many conversations with…
