Chewbacca Died. Yes, he also turned me down for an Autograph

Peter Mayhew, the 7’3” actor who played Chewbacca, has died at 74. He got his start in movies in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger," which when I saw as a kid, blew me away with the special effects (if you watch it now, it will feel very, very dated). For the first "Star Wars" (he did 5 of the Star Wars films), it was actually…

My Wife and Mark Hamill -- YES I'M TICKED OFF !!!!

You know how I know I married the right woman? Well, on our wedding night, she let me….oh come on! This is a family blog. And it’s about autographs. Here’s how I know.

I was lamenting the fact that Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) was coming to our hometown, and I had work and couldn’t go. I had seen a screening for this bizarre,…

Carrie Fisher Bogus Auction Items

I saw this on the TMZ website. I swear, when it comes to autographs and memorabilia, there's so much bogus stuff going on. It's amazing that anybody still buys stuff anymore.

Turns out some of these items never belonged to Carrie, and her brother was just trying to cash in. Read the story here:

Mark Hamill Fights Autograph Forgers -- Gets a Bill Passed in California !

The last time I wrote about Mark Hamill in regards to autographs, it was after a series of autographs were popping up showing very funny, and sometimes inappropriate, things he inscribed. It’s something I wish more celebs would do. I’ve had my share that wrote something funny in the inscription, but…

Meeting Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

So, we’ve all talked (or thought) about how horrible it is that autograph dealers capitalize on the death of celebrities. I suppose many will think it’s horrible when I say this. Certainly all my friends did when I talked about Prince dying earlier this year.

It’s hard for…

Autograph Thefts: The Star Wars Edition

Since I’ve collected lots of things over the years, I’ve always feared theft. For some reason, I’ve never had that concern regarding my autograph collection. Most of them are stored in boxes, and I doubted anybody would find them or if they did...would care about a bunch of hard-to-read scribbles on index or business cards.

When I…

Star Wars...Nothing But Star Wars...(channeling Bill Murray)

The last few years I’ve skipped the popular Comic Con, which is held right in my backyard of San Diego. The event is rather crowded and I just feel like I’ve seen it all at this point.

Each previous year I’ve gone, though…it’s autograph moments that I have the most fun with. Running into somebody like Stan Lee, Matt Groening, or author Ray Bradbury – all of them good…

Drew: The Man Behind the Poster...and the gentleman behind the artist.

In previous years, I’ve written about the autograph things I’ve seen at Comic Con for the readers here. This year, I didn’t go to Comic Con. One of my artist friends did an event next to an illustrator from the Simpson’s, and he met and got an autograph from Matt Groening.

Another friend of mine hung out and partied with Danny Trejo (Machete).

Two of my friends…
