Had an interesting experience yesterday that I thought I would share. I met about 6 celebrities yesterday. Not a bad day considering it was bone cracking cold outside. I thought my feet would actually fall off, but I digress. After Mariska Hargitay and Will Forte, I met Kellen Lutz, the star of the new Hercules. Really super nice guy. He signed and took pictures with everyone. He did however require that everything be signed in black. I prefer blue, because it is a much bolder signature and holds up better over time. Blue however has now been dubbed a "dealer's" pen. This is not the first time that I have been told that a celebrity would only sign in black. A smart in person collector will always carry multiple pens, just in case. Go blue, but always carry black. The next one was a first for me. I had the chance to meet the absolutely beautiful and talented Sophia Bush. Not only is she gorgeous, talented and very nice, but she is very street smart. I watched her turn down someone for a photo because she had seen him before. "I got you yesterday", as she stopped for everyone else. She clearly pays attention. I got my photo with her and then she did something that no one has done before. I am interested to see if this has happened with others? As she took my pen to sign, she asked me my name. I gladly told her my name was Jim so she could personalize the photo. She wrote Jim in a bold, clear print and then proceeded to add her signature directly on top of the printed Jim. Although it is not the best and clearest signature I ever reecived, my friends and I tried to figure out why she would write on top of the personalization. We could only speculate that she knows the hobby so well, as well as the tricks of the trade, that she did that to avoid the personalization from being erased! Honestly, I had no intention of erasing it. In fact my photo was on a type of printed paper that I could not erase without damaging the picture anyway. I just found this to be fascinating and was wondering if anyone else has had this experience. Not by accident but deliberately?
