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?
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.

The Greatest Autograph Collection Ever

Posted on September 8, 2021 at 9:48pm 8 Comments

There’s a popular story where music journalist Jon Landau saw Bruce Springsteen perform before his first album was released and wrote, “I saw rock and roll future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen.”

I’ve seen the most impressive autograph collector in the world, and...his name is Steven. …


Elvis Guitar For Sale

Posted on March 14, 2021 at 9:41pm 1 Comment

Remember in the end of “The Sting” how Robert Redford is going to be paid for the big sting they just did, and with a sly smile on his face he refuses the money saying, “Nah, I’ll just blow it anyway.”

I’d be the same way if I won a million dollars, because...I’d immediately bid on this item for Kruse GWS Auctions. It’s a flaming red Hagstrom Viking II guitar. It’s the same axe that Elvis Presley played during his…


The Legalities of Certain Autographs -- MLK Jr Edition

Posted on February 19, 2021 at 9:45am 2 Comments

There’s something I’ve often wondered about when it comes to buying autographs. The idea that they may have come in a way that is illegal. Let me explain. When I was around 20, I was looking at buying a contract that a famous actor had signed. It ended up being a bit out of my price range, but...I noticed it had their address, social security number, and other info that I’m sure the star wouldn’t want out there.…


Wacky Autograph Inscriptions (or Ted Cruz Part II)

As a longtime autograph collector, and someone who has written for Autograph Magazine for years, I was fascinated by the story by the HuffPost regarding the fight between The Princess Bride actor Cary Elwes and Senator Ted Cruz. In short, after…

The Huffpost did a great story, involving one of the best movies ever made (The Princess Bride) and a Senator that...isn't as loved. Read it here:

Hope everything with you is fine. I picked a keen interest on you after going through your profile. This is why I have deemed it necessary to write you immediately to disclose a financial issue that will be highly beneficial to both of us. However, it may be difficult to express myself properly here, since this is a public site. Could you please get back to me on ( for the full details about the transaction if you wish to become my foreign partner in this project.
Have a nice day.

Stephen Bollin.

Hi Josh in LA it's James in Canada. Wanted to say thank you for your time on my Lennon/Harrison autograph... like Roger Epperson himself told me, you've really got to be holding these REAL authenticated autographs in your hands to appreciate how wonderful they indeed are...the scan doesn't do them justice! BEING DOUBLE AUTHENTICATED (May 2019 and with fresh eyes again in July 2020) by the Professiional Expert Roger Epperson REAL is all the AUTHENTICity you need! Best, JAMES

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!

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.
