Now, as a movie critic, my two favorite movies featuring Chuck Berry would be “Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n Roll.” I only saw it once, and seem to…Continue
I was listening to KFI 640 AM, a Los Angeles radio station. I often like to listen to “talk radio” when I’m driving, but have no interest in hearing people discuss politics. They have a lot of shows with interesting hosts, and they delve into other topics.…Continue

I’ve written about cars before, and I’m always a bit perplexed with a car sells for millions, merely because it was used in a movie or once owned by somebody famous. Now, I’m not saying I’d kick an original Batmobile out of bed….errr….out of the garage. It’s just odd that some people think…Continue

For the longest time, Wilt Chamberlain was my favorite basketball player. That’s because as a kid, the Lakers were my favorite team. Once they drafted Magic Johnson, he quickly became my favorite player.
I was lucky enough to get Chamberlain’s autograph when…Continue
All of you autograph collectors will understand these two things. The biggest celebrity you ever got a signature from after never thinking it would happen (mine would be Paul McCartney; took me 10 years). The other thing we all love is that autograph project we’re working on. It might be…Continue
Terrell Owens was denied entry into the NFL Hall of Fame for a second time, which shows just how ridiculous the system is. He was one of the best receivers to ever play the game. Also one of the biggest dopes, but still. It’s not like the NFL threw OJ Simpson out after he murdered two people…Continue

I did a blog the other day about a game worn jersey I had of Tom Brady that's for sale. I was merely making a joke, because if you hadn't heard...during the Super Bowl, and the celebration the Patriots were having, somebody swiped quarterback Tom Brady's jersey from his locker. There's video of him telling the owner (Kraft), and he says, "I'll probably pop up online." (or something to that affect).
If somebody stole the game worn jersey, of perhaps the greatest quarterback of all…Continue
SPORTS MEMORABILIA FOR SALE!
Now, I hate parting with pieces I love, but I figure the time is right to sell this...and at a terrific price. I just acquired a piece that I think would be of interest to some fan. It's a game-worn jersey of Tom Brady's. It's not autographed, as I....errr...the person that acquired it didn't have time to ask him to sign it. He just kind of took it and...got it to me. Anybody interested?
John Wetton, the 67 year old bassist and singer, is the one that passed away. They say…Continue
There was a story I read in one of the newspapers last week. It was all about autograph shops and memorabilia places. Of course, my interest was piqued. Unfortunately, it only dealt with one kind of autograph -- Donald Trump. Specifically, the fact that he's now "President Trump" (no matter how you feel…Continue
A handful of autograph stories popped up all in the same day for me yesterday. In the morning, I had a movie screening to go to of The Comedian, where Robert De Niro plays a stand-up comedian that used…Continue
I have a love/hate relationship with TMZ. I watch it a lot because they’re funny, but I also think what they do is a bit weasly. One of my justifications to the wife on why I have it on, is because they sometimes show celebrities…Continue

It seemed like just yesterday that there was controversy when a college football stud -- Mr. Football -- Johnny Manziel was selling his autograph in a hotel room. You see, college athletes aren’t allowed to make money off their…Continue

The last time I wrote about Mark Hamill in regards to autographs, it was after a series of autographs were popping up showing very funny, and sometimes inappropriate, things he inscribed. It’s something I wish more celebs would…Continue

I have a lot of autograph dreams. Over the years, I'd say I've had about 25 (that I can remember). Now, I'm not talking about an upcoming person I'm going to get. I've had so many times where I was going to interview somebody famous, or meet them at the venue...I didn't have a dream about that. I'm not sure why, but I only have dreams about getting autographs from dead celebrities. It's friggin' baffling to me. Not sure what Freud would say about that.
Last night, I had a dream that I…Continue
So, we’ve all talked (or thought) about how horrible it is that autograph dealers capitalize on the death of celebrities. I suppose many will think it’s horrible when I say this. Certainly all my friends did when I talked about…Continue
I wrote about the story back when Christina Grimmie of “The Voice” was shot at an Orlando venue after a concert, while she was signing autographs for fans. The latest is that her family is suing the promotional company and venue where she was killed. I find it hard to believe that AEG Live or the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza Foundation, which owns the venue, will lose this suit. When somebody brings a gun…Continue
