Getting Autographs Will Get Harder -- Just ask Scottie Pippen and Halle Berry

(Stay away from Halle you paparazzi or I unload on every one of you!!!)

Two things happened in the news the last two days, that can affect all of the autograph collectors. Let’s examine these things, shall we?

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry went to the Capitol on Tuedsay, testifying in favor of a bill aimed at restricting paparazzi from taking…

Autographed Baseball Blog -- A funny late night show and 4th of July

Late night talk shows are the perfect place to hear autograph stories. You see, the talk show hosts and the stars, get sick of just coming on and promoting their latest movie and telling the same stories about what it was like to work with Meryl Streep.

Last night on The Tonight Show (which I watched only because Letterman and Kimmel were repeats), comedian and…

Celtics Star Rajon Rondo on Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is the best late night host working today. His monologues are great, his interview style, and sense of humor.

Last year during the NBA Finals, he had shows that aired immediately after the games. One of the things he did was using an NBA star (I’m almost positive it was Shaq), to prank fans that were lined up for a fake autograph session Kimmel had…

The Kinks Kronicles -- The Work in Trying to Meet one of my Favorite Bands

I went from being a DJ at a classic rock station, to being a writer. One of the first editors I had had to keep reminded me that when I talk about bands, others won’t know the songs or musicians the way I do. So before I start this story on my quest to get all of The Kinks signatures, here’s a list of their songs that you might know: Lola, You Really Got Me, Tired of…

President Lincoln -- The Oldest Known Document

I always like when things pop up that celebrities did when they were young. A lot of Buddy Holly’s homework has popped up over the years. I’ve also seen homework from a few other celebrities, but since Buddy Holly had that geeky look with the thick glasses – and since he was a 50s singer – something seemed more interesting about a piece of school work from him.

And since we’ve all seen lots of drawings, doodles, and paintings from famous folks, there’s something so intriguing about…

Jackie Robinson and Mickey Mantle Items

A couple of baseball items that were just auctioned off that sound rather interesting. A baseball glove that Jackie Robinson wore in the 1955 and 1956 World Series fetched $373,000 at the Steiner Sports Memorabilia Auction. The same seller also parted with a Louisville Slugger bat which was used in the 1956 season. That went for $114,000. The same buyer purchased both items, but didn’t identify himself. It’s probably safe to say, if burglars break into his place – he won’t be hitting them…

Meeting Matt Bonner -- as told to Jay Mohr

Jay Mohr does the best sports on the air. If you’re a sports fan, and you can get him in your city, tune in.

The first time I saw Mohr was on Saturday Night Live. He did great impersonations (Christopher Walken, Joe Pesci, etc); even though in the book Live from New York, he makes it sound like he wasn’t so successful on that show.

He’s always great…
