The Day I Met Gene Wilder (and ran into an old girlfriend)

I wrote about Gene Wilder for Autograph back when you could find it on newsstands. I thought I’d share that story, and a little more, about my one experience with the comedic genius.

Having been born in 1969, my favorite Wilder comedies as a kid were…

Auction Items -- the Bonnie & Clyde and Muhammad Ali Edition

I like to write about various auction items that might appeal to the autograph collector, and it seems each week there’s a new one.

A few weeks ago, a number of Muhammad Ali items were listed to come up in auction. The 1974 WBC heavyweight belt, as well as a handwritten letter about his conversion to Islam. That would be an amazing piece, especially if it were signed “Cassius Clay.”…

Autographs People Get For You -- The Warren Beatty Edition

In entertainment news, Jay Z got into a little trouble for pushing a fan that he felt got a little too close to his wife Beyonce. They were in Manhattan at a screening of the boxing movie “Hands of Stone” (side note: I saw it, and it’s pretty good; if you’re a boxing fan, don’t miss it).

Autographed Book and Photo -- The Donald Trump / Deli Controversy

No matter how you feel about Donald Trump politically...or how you feel about his hair...or his horrible reality shows...etc etc etc...there’s one thing we can all agree on. The dude has a cool autograph. Now, if you want a signed copy of his “The Art of the Deal,” you can go to his main website and…

Athletes and Autographs -- the Todd Gurley, Philip Rivers, and Joey Votta Edition

There were three autograph things today relating to athletes, so I thought I’d slap out a little blog about them.

The first came when I woke up, turned on the TV, and saw a commercial with Rams running back Todd Gurley. He’s not a guy I like, but for the stupidest of…
