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…Continue
Ever since I was a young boy/I’ve collected signed baseballs
From San Diego to Los Angeles/Celebs, I’ve gotten them all
But I ain’t ever got Stan Lee/He created Marvel

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.Continue
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.

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.
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…Continue
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…Continue
