For decades, it was really hard to obtain any quantity of

KISS signatures. For years, I never thought I could ever meet all 4

of the original members and obtain anything signed in full by them.

 

Then came autograph conventions, in store signings, and “meet and greets”. If I had the money and the desire to travel, finally KISS autographs as you see on this page, were very much obtainable.

Though there have been several line-up changes to this band over the years, resulting in a group of very good musicians who are a pleasure to see in concert. I rather not be part of all that “I like this version better than that version” or “the original version is the only version” kind of talk.  Every member of this amazing band is an amazing version. I appreciate the 4 founding members as well as THE POWER and THE ENERGY that Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer currently bring to these live shows.

 

I WILL SHOUT THAT OUT LOUD!

 

 

Thank You Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss and Gene Simmons

as well as Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer and also Bob Kulick and Bruce Kulick

for all the generosity in helping me amass this huge abundance of

KISS autographed memorabilia and having so very fun while obtaining.

FULLY SIGNED INNER POSTER TOUR BOOK PAGE

 

It took several years, with travel to multiple states, attending quite a few
conventions and “Meet and Greet’s”, but perseverance does pay off.
Fully signed inner poster sleeve from the 1997 KISS Tour Book.

Though these signatures came with a prepaid price, I still feel incredibly lucky to have met each of the members of this legendary band, get to speak with them, and receive the signed memorabilia you see on this page.

 

 

MY AUTOGRAPHED KISS ALBUMS

 

The following autographed KISS albums were all obtained

from 2015 – 2019 at various costly and often quite crowded 

Conventions and Meet & Greets in the states of

Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada,

Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

 
Obtaining KISS signatures are some of the most “costly” autographs I have obtained
and that you will see within this website and my collection.

It has required great travel and even greater expense.

EVERY ALBUM, EVERY SIGNATURE

WAS SIGNED IN PERSON IN FRONT OF ME.

 

 Fully signed albums by either the post or current band members

are very rare and often very forged. To have the quantity I have

(with more still to be added once completed)

is truly a testament that hard work and paying their appearance prices

can provide quite the collection of signed albums.

Miami, on October 27 and 28, 2019.

 

THUS FAR, these four times are the onIy

times I have met Peter Criss.

 

On each of the four occasions, Peter was especially so very friendly, warming to all his fans, and took time to personally express his love, sincere thanks, and admiration for all who came out to see him and purchase signed items of memorabilia. Both he and his beautiful wife Gigi as well as his his team, were simply as nice and as kind as can be as they greeted each fan individually.

the Peter Criss Meet and Greet’s have been.

 

 

The first solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was at

ALL THINGS THAT ROCK

in Oaks, Pa. on Saturday and Sunday November 3 and 4, 2015.

 

 

 

Header: All Things that Rock
 

Wishing and meeting and Ace Frehley was something

back in the 1970’s I could never of imagined.

 

 

          I have met Ace Frehley more times than any other member of KISS.

Finally, after collecting in person autographs for 30 years,

I was able to meet Ace Frehley of KISS on October 3, 2015

at the “ALL THINGS THAT ROCK” Convention in Oaks, Pa.

 

The following items of memorabilia were all personally signed by Ace Frehley

on Saturday October 3, 2015 at the “ALL THINGS THAT ROCK” Expo, in Oaks, PA.

It was amazing to meet and chat (very briefly) with Ace and receive a total

of 21 different signed items of memorabilia that day.

It was at this second Meet and Greet that I presented only albums,

both KISS and solo, for his autographing.

(many of which are above in the completed albums and/or solo sections)

 

 

 

 

The third solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was at

The solo autographed photos were pre-signed and either part

of the Meet and Greet OR sold at the Merch Booth.

 

 

 

 

The fourth solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was

It was at this fourth Meet and Greet that I too presented Ace Frehley,
albums, tour book pages, and many photos. After purchasing
for 3 separate Meet and Greet packages, I absolutely walked

 away with what I believe was 19 signed items that evening.

 

 

 

 

The fifth solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was at

THE PALMS HOTEL/KISS MINI GOLF

in Las Vegas, on Saturday October 27, 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The above images, poster, albums and all other items were obtained at the

was pre-signed by Ace Frehley in black marker

and then counter-signed in person in blue marker

It was at this fifth Meet and Greet that for a price of $60.00 per signature, 

a fan could receive as many items as they wish to be signed.

 

This event was so large,

that it took up two days to meet the demands of so many fans.

 

I walked away with what I believe

was 22 signed items that evening.

 

 

 

 

The sixth solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was at

The seventh solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was

at THE CAVE THEATER in

 Big Bear, on Friday November 15, 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Ace Frehley “trimmed” the amount of items a fan can get signed from
5 (previous tours) to just 4 on this later part of his 2019 tour.

In keeping with not wanting to start any further KISS items,

I got signed the following solo album, and 3 more of his 1978 KISS/solo albums.

 

 

Ace Fehley signed “SPACEMAN” album autographed at

The Cave Theater in Big Bear City, November 15, 2019.

 

 

 

The eigth solo Ace Frehley Meet & Greet I attended was

at THE ROSE THEATER in

 Pasadena, on Sunday November 24, 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in the 1970’s,

KISS SOLD MANY VERY ONE OF A KIND POSTERS.

40 years later, these posters have become very iconic
and legendary and finding them in any real pristine condition
is very difficult. Signed and autographed, is almost an impossibility.

 

I am working on getting as many autographed posters as I can

possibly can obtain and get personally signed.

There were also these iconic and classic posters as well:

 

The 1976 Bicentennial Poster,

 

The 1976 New York City Poster,

 

The 1977 individual Motorcycle Posters,

 

and there was the 1977 individual Alive II Posters.

 

 

These posters once signed by Ace, Gene, Paul and Peter,

or collectively signed by all four on one poster,

will be indeed a very, very rare collectable.

 

 

 

(more signed poster to come, once completed)

It took four years and four states to collect all four signatures

on this signed 8×10 outtake photo from the first album

but FINALLY, this completed fully signed color 8X10 photograph.

 

 
Ace Frehely Drumhead

Signed drumhead by Ace Frehely, Peter Criss, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley,
 Ordered and shipped through their online website.

 

 

After the following October 31, 1998 promo for their Dodger Stadium performance

are two fully autographed concert posters sold

at the event that were later signed by all four band members.

Not only have I not seen anywhere with any other collector or in any other

collection these POSTER’S signed, Peter Criss stated in 2015 that he has

never seen these posters and especially thinks he has never signed them.

 

 

This leads me to believe that there is a very strong likelihood that these may be the

 only two autographed and real, fully signed band posters from this tour. If that is so……

HOW RARE OF A KISS ITEM WOULD YOU SAY THESE ARE?

 

Poster - KISS #1

 

 

Poster - KISS #2

Both of the above very rare Psycho Circus posters were sold (unsigned) 

only at the October 31, 1998 Dodger Stadium performance.

 I took me 3 years and 4 states to finally complete all 4 signatures on both posters.

To date, I have never seen anyone else or any where else having these posters fully autographed.

 

I am complemented constantly about having these signed posters in my collection.

 

 

 

KISS Tour Book #2

THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THREE YEARS and THREE STATES:

It took me 3 years and 3 full trips to the states of

Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Oregon 

to get this 1996/1997 Tour Book fully signed by each member.

 

This is an amazing signed collectable of extreme rare KISS memorabilia.

at Book Stores and shipped direct after the event, and through KISS/ONLINE,

and at the merchandise booth at concerts both in Phoenix and Eugene in 2016.

 

I have since STOPPED (as of 2018)

collecting KISS autographed books.

It’s a complete waste of time as their are simply too many books, far

too many people that attend these book only signing’s whereas the band

autographs no other of their memorabilia).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Signed by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS, their “AUCTION” catalog held at The Paramount Studios Theatre in Hollywood on June 24th/25th, 2000. 

Everyone who registered  for the auction received a signed catalog lot book. This one was my copy. Up for bid were costumes, stage equipment, props, drawings and lyrics, instruments, tour itineraries, and so much more (much dating back to the very early 1970’s). Needless to say at the prices all the items were going for, even the cheap items were something I just could not afford.

FAST FORWARD TO 2016 AND BEYOND:

THE EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT AND EQUALLY

AS TALENTED AND SO VERY EXCITING

 

and so very enjoyable in concert is the current line-up of KISS that
 includes and keeps on rocking with members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

As a am winding down my collecting of the Ace Frehley and Peter Criss line-up of KISS,

I am just now in 2016 starting to increase my collecting of the current line-up of KISS. 

And why not, Eric and Tommy are so enjoyable in concert and even more so,

are great, great, great, guys to meet and talk with.  So genuine!!

 

KISS memorabilia and autographs continue as the band continues.

Though the original line-up still is the classic KISS,

I too come full circle and have begun to concentrate

my efforts even more and enjoy all that is Tommy, Eric, Gene and Paul.

Finally, on July 4th, 2016, I can say that I meet in person, each member of the 2016 version of the band KISS. I now through different dates and Meet and Greets and conventions had met each of the 4 members of this legendary band including the very talented and super cool Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.

Both of the above images were part of the KISS 2016 “Freedom Of Rock Tour”, during the “Meet and Greet’s” at Tucson, Arizona, on July 4, 2016 (me only) and in Eugene, Oregon, July 9, 2016, (me and my wife). The guys provided a pre-concert/mini concert, photo ops, and signed a ton of personal memorabilia. It was indeed a dream fulfilled!

 

A TRUE MUSICAL WISH WITH THIS AMAZING BAND!!

This is a pre-signed KISS drumhead autographed by Eric Singer
purchased during the KISS “Meet and Greet” in Eugene, Oregon on July 9, 2016.

KISS has made it very easy these last 10 years to purchase signed memorabilia

(however, you must be of means to afford their prices).

ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS,

the very kind, friendly and most generous Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.

Such an extremely very cool guys indeed!!
