CELEBRITIES and ROCK & ROLL ARTIST’S
I get it. I fully understand………….
I understand that there is a large community of “fans” that ask you for your signature with only the intentions of selling that signed item on any number of internet auction or memorabilia site’s.
I understand your frustration at being duped and manipulated when asked to sign an item of memorabilia, and why so many of you are either not signing autographs OR charging fees for your autographs. It makes sense. I get it.
Please know that when I met up with you and ask or pay for your
autograph, that I am a true fan of yours and that my request and
admiration is always 1000% fully sincere.
If I wasn’t a fan of yours, and purchase your music, and attend your concerts, and listen to the
songs you have written and share them with my family, I would not be asking you for your
autograph. Its simply that simple.
In 2014/2015, the concert Meet & Greet really took off like a skyrocket
both in availability by the artist and in the price for the event. Though I had budgeted for the already increasing autograph style conventions and those increased prices, I could no longer afford what was now being charged by the promoters and artists at their pre and post concert Meet & Greet’s. Thus, the decision was made to split apart my 30 years of collecting and refusing to ever sell anything, by selling that small portion of my collection that were triplicates of obtained items and artists, or those signatures that may have had relevance 20+ years ago when I obtained them, but, was not really what I wanted in my collection going forward.
By the end 2017 I had sold all that I wanted and once again put back up a strict,
“Thank You, but No Thank You”
front lawn sign to the ever still email requests that I receive requesting to sell selected items. I now have my collection exactly where I want it. With only a very few exceptions, all items you see within this website and I have within my collection were obtained in person by myself, through the artists website, or purchased directly at a concert merchandise booth. Authenticity and having no scrutiny within my collection is paramount as I will one day leave all that I have collected to my three children.
IT’S GETTING TOUGHER AND TOUGHER AND TOUGHER TO OBTAIN:
It is getting tougher and tougher to obtain autographs in 2019/2020 and beyond. I continually pursue artists in the best possible autograph conditions for signing by paying the incredible increasing higher prices for Concert Meet & Greets and attending Autograph Conventions in various states and even in other countries. Please understand the outrageous costs I spend annually associated with attending anywhere an artist is available to meet their fans. This I do believe results in the finest possible signatures that I can obtain. I continue my pursuit of not just new and more recent signatures but also as an upgrade of older signatures that were signed years ago on the streets. Many of these sloppier or rushed signatures I have since sold or even tossed away, as they are not of the quality that I wish to keep and preserve and pass on to my children.
AT THIS TIME, nothing that you see upon this website is for any sale of any kind.
My collecting has always been about preservation as well as the thrill of obtaining.
Please be kind when I ask you for your autograph. That signature will most likely be
preserved by my family for generations that will follow.
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.
