Super Bowl Autograph -- The George Kittle Edition

We’ve all seen athletes exchange jerseys after games. We’ve seen athletes give their shoes to fans, sometimes signing them. Well, with a few weeks to go before the Super Bowl (and boy is that going to be a good game with those two teams), I thought it was funny to see San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle wearing an autographed T-shirt into a press conference after the game. It was a T-shirt that showed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, without a shirt on. It…

Completing The World According To Garp Autographs

It was a bummer to hear that comedy genius Buck Henry passed away recently, but...he was 89, and had a great run.

As a kid, I remember always laughing when he’d appear on Saturday Night Live. My favorite skit was when he was a customer and John Belushi was the Samuri Deli. Perhaps they’re recreating that skit now in heaven.

Vikings Player Tricked by Media -- An Autograph for "Charity"

I’ve often talked about how everyone wanting to do selfies, has hurt autograph collectors. Now, the stars have to stand around taking photos, which takes so much longer (and they have to worry about looking bad in the photo or who they’re taking a photo with).

Well, when things involving charities happen, it hurts, too (you can find the previous story on this site about a charity that actually deals in fake…
