What Do El Chappo and O.J. Simpson Have in Common (aside from the obvious)

Mexican drug lord “El Chapo” is in jail, and potential jurors at his federal trial in New York are being called in. One that was dismissed was a Michael Jackson impersonator. That would be odd enough, but hey...we’re autograph collectors. Here’s the weird one we can appreciate. Sort of. A juror was dismissed after he asked Joaquin Guzman (his real name) for his autograph. I first heard that on The Daily Show.…

Humor and Horror -- The Halloween Blog

The other day, comedian and actor Denis Leary was on Conan O’Brien. He was promoting his new book, and the subject of autographs came up. He talked about when he started out doing comedic shorts for MTV and first started getting recognized places.

Cars and Killers (and autographs)

I remember as a kid reading a Sports Illustrated story on Reggie Jackson. The baseball Hall of Famer had an impressive collection of 28 cars (years later I read that his garage burned down and they were destroyed).

We all drool over Jay Leno’s car collection, but for autograph and memorabilia collectors, we sometimes like cars for other reasons. They joked on Seinfeld once when Kramer bought a car that was supposedly owned by Jon Voight.
