Bruce, Buble, and Booze -- Singers and Handwritten lyrics



Since music autographs are the favorite in my collection, and I’m thankful for the amazing collection I have, I thought I’d share some recent stories that popped up in the news.

Here in San Diego, Michael Buble had a concert at the Sports Arena. I’m not a fan of the crooner (and I turned down a free pair of tickets to…

There’s nothing more enjoyable than meeting a fellow collector and hearing about their autograph collection. As somebody that prefers autographed records and CDs, it’s always the most fun to hear about those.

I have a lot of authors I like, yet I don’t own a lot of signed books. I’m always envious when I go to New York and see the…

Athletes and Injuries -- The Autograph Edition

There have been so many stories about athletes being injured in weird ways. A former major league pitcher I know (who once pitched a perfect game), once cut up his hand while chasing a friend around his kitchen. He slipped on the floor and was holding a mug that broke.

JFK Doodles Hit the Market

If I’m doing a story about Doodles and autographs, I’d prefer it to be about the unknown comedian named Doodles Weaver (related to actress Sigourney). He was a brilliant comedic mind, and ended up killing himself when medical issues popped up. I know somebody that currently has a signed Doodles Weaver picture (pictured here). It’s the first autograph of his I’ve ever…

David Letterman Top 10 List on Celebrity Memorabilia

Here was a David Letterman Top 10 List from last nights show that I thought memorabilia collectors could appreciate.

He started it by saying, “In California, Oprah had a yard sale to get rid of stuff she’s had since 1985. She raised over $500,000 for charity; and really, aren’t we all just sick and tired of clutter? Even Oprah has the brains to know…humans can get by on…
