"I will take a photo and post it when I get it. They wanted to charge $70 for postage (since it's framed, and would need to be packed so the frame doesn't break). So, I told them I'd pick it up next time I'm in L.A."

Long Shot -- Fans Getting Autographs at CinemaCon

There’s an incredibly fun and interesting convention for movie theatre owners called CinemaCon. It used to be called ShoWest, and it takes place for a week each year in Las Vegas.As much as I love having actors sign my favorite DVDs, at events like this I don’t usually get autographs. It’s not very professional, and I’m there to do a job (in fact, the long story I wrote about the convention can be found here:…See More

"It's a nice item, but not highly valuable. The signatures you got on there, are ALL people that signed a lot. Obviously, Winter and BB King aren't alive anymore, and King is a legend."

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector, Other
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Sports, Books/Literature, Modern Hollywood and Stage, Classic Hollywood and Stage, Music
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
For some reason, as a kid and teenager, sports autographs were my favorite. Especially basketball, as I grew up playing it. But as I became older, I started gravitating more towards singers and musicians I was a fan of.

My collection consists of thousands and thousands of autographs. Everything from CDs and albums, to movie posters, musical instruments as well as the usual 8 x 10 signed photos.

I have a lot of pieces that are very valuable, and I hate the fact that they are stored very poorly in my friends garage. But the fact is, I've run out of space at my own house. And even though I love collecting, I don't think they look good on the wall. I don't want my home looking like a Hard Rock Cafe, I'd rather have nice art work on the walls and things like that. So, that means all me pieces are just sitting in the garage or on my desk, etc. It drives my girlfriend crazy, but I can't complain. Many times, she's with me on my quest to score the next autograph.
What is your level of expertise?
Professional
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
It would be a tie between a Morrison Hotel album, that is not only autographed by all four of The Doors, but also the photographer of the album (Henry Diltz), as well as John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful), who plays harmonica on Roadhouse Blues. My goal is to have it signed by everyone that had anything to do with the record, although, a few of (producer Paul Rothchild, guitarist Lonnie Mack) have died, so I might be done with it already.

I'm also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best).
Why do you collect?
I think it's fun. But I'm so glad that as I've gotten older (I'm turning 40, the same year as Woodstock is!) I've chilled out. If I don't have an item for a celebrity, I don't rush up and bug them. Or if I meet someone famous, I'm not in a panic looking for a Sharpie. And it bothers me if I'm in LA getting an autograph, and some of the ebay dealers are doing exactly what I hate -- pushing and shoving, being rude, getting 20 head shots signed, and they aren't even a fan of the person that they're hounding.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
If it's an actor -- Marlon Brando. A musician -- Jim Morrison. A historical figure -- Jesus Christ, although it would probably be hard to authenticate, huh? I'd also make him turn my Evian bottle into a nice red wine.

What do Doritos and Ringo Starr Have in Common?

Posted on April 11, 2019 at 11:24pm 4 Comments

Everyone is talking about actresses Felicity Huffman (and her husband William H. Macy) and Lori Loughlin getting caught up in this scandal where they paid off people to take the SAT for their kids, to help them get into college. Well, Loughlin did something that a lot of you would love, but most people hated. She signed autographs outside of court last week. It was probably bad form. Especially since Huffman has said she’s guilty and sorry. Loughlin seems…

Two Quick Autograph Stories -- Danny DeVito and Steph Curry

Posted on March 20, 2019 at 8:07pm 5 Comments

I was watching Danny DeVito on The Talk today (can somebody explain to me why these talk shows with all women are so popular? Both "The Talk" and "The View" are just awful). Anyway, his new movie "Dumbo" looks great. And, he was in my favorite sitcom of all-time -- Taxi. He started talking about the show and he said how he had a lot of stuff around him that a…

Interviewing Dick Dale -- King of the Surf Guitar

Posted on March 17, 2019 at 11:02pm 2 Comments

Most younger folks (those under 40) probably only know Dick Dale from his great tune “Misirlou” being used to start Pulp Fiction off; or, they know the song that samples it by the Black Eyed Peas (in a concert I saw once, Dale said that Black Eyed Peas song made him enough money to buy a room edition on his home).

Those of us old fogies, or guitar lovers, know Dale as the “King of the Surf Guitar.” I was saddened…

Yes I'm sure. The auction I bought mine at in new York said only 25 were signed with all four boys. 25 signed would still give 25 different people or radio stations a chance to own one. I'm not selling mine. I doubt a radio station would just get tossed one. Perhaps it was a copy your station had. Or maybe someone there did buy one. Jacky Smith (head of Queen's fan club) had approved it as being one of only a handful signed. She didn't know how many exactly.

I read on your page you are "also fond of my Sgt. Pepper record, signed by 5 Beatles (all the four, plus original drummer Pete Best)."

That is a great piece. Do you have a picture of it posted anywhere? What about the Doors album? I'd love to see both of them.

hi Josh, whats your personal opinions on authentic I Dream of Jeannie bottle props?
i've seen a 2nd season sold at Butterfields, a 1st season sold at Profiles in History.
and another 2nd season sold on eBay.
i've always wanted one, i know there expensive, but if the person whos selling them,
i would commit/agree to a standard payment each month to pay it off, because its my 'DREAM' to own an original jeannie prop bottle.
p.s. do u know any stores, and/or online stores that sell 'replicas' for a good/inexpensive? i hope u had an awesome July 4th!
-Jason.

Josh, I deleted Myron Ross's blog post by mistake when I went to edit a misspelling in the title, sorry. I let him know so he could repost.

thank you so much. & i have 1 other question...
i met former Vice President Al Gore & his wife about 7 years ago at a booksigning
for their book i believed it was titled 'joined at the heart' ...
i bought a local newspaper ''the Raleigh News & Observer''
& the front page & headline story said:
'Al Gore will not run again for re-election'

he and his wife gladly signed it.
since its an important headline with a picture and its signed by the both of them, would that be a rare item, as suppose to a signature etc. ?
At 10:14am on May 26, 2010, Jason Boyd said…
could you help me out with some advice about an autograph?
i obtained it in person, and i know its real (duh) anyways, i'd like to have your thoughts as in demand/rarity for this item...
used in concert & signed drum sticks by Britney's Drummer
signed tour glowstick by her entire band.
i would be honored to have your opinions in regards to these two unique items.
thanks,
-Jason.
