Re: Al Kaline charges money for fake autographs

The only way you can be sure a signature is real is to witness it yourself. Authentication companies are not in fallible. Know and trust the signature, not a piece of paper. That said, I have never heard of someone charging a fee and getting a fake signature in return. If you feel it is fake, the be...

Re: How do you store your autographs?

I have a similar system, binder with sheet protectors. They don't stick to the plastic if it's archival and if it's not a paint pen. I always put a slip of paper over the paint signatures - can't see them, but prevents sticking to the plastic. I also use photo corners mounting a 5x7 onto an 8-1/2x11...

Re: Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Fail/RTS

Save your postage. He rarely signs in-person. You'll have to meet Buzz at a show, or order off his website, or through a signing event, and he charges at least $600 for a signed photo of just him.

Re: Don't Bother Trying for Timothee Chalamet

I appreciate the good points you make, however I had already considered them. And just as an aside, as a former avid follower of this actor on social media, he NEVER declines an autograph when there's a photo op to be had LOL. I know an astronaut who is nice enough, but doesn't sign autographs TTM ...

Re: Don't Bother Trying for Timothee Chalamet

There are many reasons why you don't get a response withing the so-called wait time. They could be busy acting, which is their number one priority, you letter could have gotten lost or mislaid, or they may simply decide not to sign, either at this time, or at all anymore. It pretty much is the luck ...

Re: Astronaut Signed Index Cards

You may get lucky, but for the most part the G/A/S astronauts require a fee, even TTM.

Re: Collecting In Person with friends/siblings

This is a different topic, but what if you were able to get a rare item signed that you both owned (a one of a kind item)? How would ownership work then? Would you both get a certain amount of time with the autographed item? I only bring this up because I was reading an article online about how mor...

Re: Collecting In Person with friends/siblings

That's life, no pun intended. My friends and I are mature enough to be happy that someone in our circle got an autograph, even though we may not have. And we attend a lot of events where we don't know if a person from whom we're seeking an autograph will be making the rounds again.
