The Selling of Any of My Memorabilia

PLEASE NOTICE THAT THIS WEBSITE IS NOT A SHOPPING CART OR A SWAP MEET.  

IT IS A PERSONAL MUSEUM AND COLLECTION OF VERY RARE HARD TO OBTAIN MOSTLY INSCRIBED AUTOGRAPHED ROCK AND ROLL MEMORABILIA. 

I intend very much to leave its entirety to my three beautiful children. What they then decide to do with all I have collected will be for them to each figure out (hopefully, they will simply keep and preserve it for their children).

IT’S AN OVER 35 YEAR LABOR OF PASSION THROUGHOUT MY ENTIRE ADULT LIFE.

Almost everything contained herein is not in anyway for ANY type of resale.

 

However, to continue to grow this collection and continue its progress and keep steady with the costs of obtaining new signatures, I may very well consider an offer you may have if interested in purchasing an item within.

 

The means of collecting has changed greatly since I first hit the streets, waited at radio stations and hotels and hung out  at other personal celebrity appearances starting back in 1986. The FREE “On The Streets” signatures have been replaced by costly autograph conventions and the ever increasing and very expensive Concert Meet & Greets. In the real world, I wish to say that nothing contained in this website is ever for sale. For the majority of what you see and the most part, this holds very true. 

PLEASE ASK any questions you have and please get as much detail as you need prior to purchasing anything.

I am a very friendly person and will treat you with the same respect that I wish to be treated. Email communication are most encouraged.

 

PLEASE SEEK ALL THIRD PARTY OPINIONS PRIOR TO CONTACTING ME ABOUT SELLING AN ITEM. PLEASE SATISFY YOUR CURIOSITY AND AUTHENTICATION NEEDS, AND ANY OTHER NEEDS YOU MAY HAVE, PRIOR TO THE CLOSE OF ANY TRANSACTION.

The time to seek third party authentication, opinions, advice, and the history of any signature in my collection is BEFORE any anticipated purchase. The internet is full of discussions and chat lines often by very anonymous individuals offering their opinions fueled by motivation that can be unethical, slanderous and liable, for reasons having little to do with the signature itself.  Further and even worse, are those wanting to return a purchased item often months later claiming the item is fraudulent, when in reality they simply cannot sell the item for what they paid for it or for the profit they seek.

Such claims have no merit and no mercy to a transaction made in all honesty and in good faith. Honest sellers have been burned by this scenario for far too long.

 

I AM HAPPY TO PROVIDE ON ALL PURCHASES A

“Letter of Circumstances and Authenticity”. 

Please ask me to email you an EXAMPLE COPY PRIOR TO YOUR PURCHASE as so I can detail for you as much as I can the circumstances and authenticity in which these signature/s were obtained.

 

ALL PURCHASES ARE DEEMED TO BE FINAL

30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE ITEM IS RECIEVED.

 

 

(please note: There are no items from either my CHEAP TRICK page and/or my KISS page that are for sale.  These pages are way to personal and the autographs are of some of my favorite within my collection, and not always that easy to obtain).

Most likely each inscribed item you see is what I consider a personal “gift” from the celebrity. I often ask for an item to be inscribed, purposely. Unless you really want an inscribed item, that item of memorabilia is not in all actuality going to be for sell.

        

*******THESE ARE MY CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE*******

WHY NOW WOULD I EVEN CONSIDER SELLING ANYTHING FROM THIS WEBSITE?

Prior to my 2017 downsize of so much overall memorabilia,  I had obtained over 3000+ autographs from over 600 of the greatest performers and music pioneers, some motion picture and television celebrity legends.

in 2016, I broke down my entire collection into 3 categories.

My “A-LIST” are my signatures that are mostly personalized, signed with full and complete autographs, and are the rare of the rare and hardest to obtain, These signed items are what I consider as permanent to my collection. many, are one of a kind and unique to my collection only.  You may not find them such as this, in any other collection anywhere. I am indeed very fortunate to have obtained these items.  They are of museum and Hall of Fame quality.

My “B-List” are also excellent autographed items with pretty good signatures that most would too consider of showroom quality. Some items are duplicated or in multiple quantity, bringing forth a less scarcity of these signed items  These too are almost permanent, however, for the right price may consider selling if the circumstances fairly presented itself.

My “C-List” were (are) many duplicated items, usually sloppy or very rushed signed items, or items that I simply felt just were not worth keeping or were of a quantity that I could and would sell as to off set my collecting costs. As well, also sold and are still selling many non autographed items such as a large stack of my over 300 concert tour books.

Autograph Conventions are plentiful and are scattered across many different states. Travel and hotel stay is a major expense. The average celebrity at an autograph show or convention charges $30.00 – $50.00 per signed item, with specialty items going for much more. The average concert Meet and Greet can be in excess of $400.00, per person which at times does not include the concert ticket. Some Meet and Greets are even into the $1000.00 or more price range (KISS and Aerosmith, among others). The selling and obtaining of any such memorabilia, especially in person, is now not just big business, but HUGE BUSINESS and the celebrities are cashing in on it. To keep up with and continue its pace of growth and cover such rising and inflated costs, I need this collection, like any collection, to self sustain itself.

 

(please feel free to contact me, and lets discuss what you may be interested in). 

Regretfully, I cannot offer any services for trying to get a personal item of yours signed. I simply cannot and do not want the responsibility of another collector’s item of memorabilia. With that said, I am happy to share any information that I can that may assist you in getting your item of memorabilia autographed. Email me please: I would enjoy helping you……….

Equally, I do not purchase any signatures from outside collectors. Though you may have some historic and very rare items of memorabilia, and no doubt such items would look great on this website and in my collection, it is simply not how I obtain, nor is the nature of this collection.

Please note that this entire website gets updated and copyrighted continuously. If you choose to upload, down load or whatever load any image or item from this website, please do so with photograph credits and my website name information. Play fair and honest and I will probably see no need contact you or make a fuss.
