Collecting Star Wars autographs is possibly the best hobby in this world or any other. But the hobby, just like the films, has a dark side. Forgeries, secretarial signatures, dealers without the proper knowledge and mistakes by authentication companies can give even the best collectors heartaches and nightmares.
With all the hype surrounding the release Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and the promise of the remainder of the new trilogy and stand-alone films…

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 a movie you like, is a lot more interesting. To me, a step above…Continue
I have a large collection of autographs from The Kids in the Hall -- my favorite comedy troupe ever. I'll never sell them.
It seems every five years the guys tour -- and they're good about signing before and after shows (at one show, they came into the merch booth 40 minutes after the show to sign items and take photos).
I've gotten all my DVDs signed, an 8 x 10 from their movie Brain Candy.
Well, the other day I drove up to the Irvine Improv…Continue

Beatles history was made on May 21. On that day, Case Antiques, a regional art and antiques auction house in Knoxville, Tenn., sold a previously unknown "Meet the Beatles" album, signed by the Fab Four.
It wasn't the price that made history. At $63,250 including the buyer's premium, the price was good, considering it was the only music piece offered in an antique and art auction, but not a particularly strong. The Hard Rock auctioned a similar one around a decade ago for about…Continue

In Autograph Magazine’s Top signers list, Johnny Depp usually makes it to the top 10. We’ve heard reports of him signing at a stop sign in his car, commenting that he’d leave if another car came up behind him.…Continue
I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Scott Pilgrim. It's not for everyone, and I'm guessing older folks won't appreciate all the video game ref. in the film.
In one scene, Michael Cera is on the set of a movie being filmed and is in awe of the former pro skateboarder turned A-list movie star (with the last name "Lee"...making me think of Jason Lee).
This guy ends up coming up to Cera, who is talking on the set. Just as Cera is asking for his…Continue
The last song on the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band record was A Day in the Life, written by John Lennon. It's considered by many the best song on the album.
In Rolling Stone Magazines list of 500 Great Songs of All Time, it was #26. And, in terms of handwritten lyrics, it's probably #1.
An American collecto paid $1.2 million for it at the Sotheby's auction. They had estimated it would get between 500,000 and $800,000.
It's on a…Continue
