Two personally signed pages from the 1985 FARM AID program book.


One of the first times I obtained Tom’s autograph was backstage at the Universal Amphitheatre on June 8, 1987 (before all the mall shops, restaurants and redesigned stores).

I also obtained his autograph at Rockline Studios on June 26, 1989 and again on September 4, 1991. Tom signed at the San Diego Sports Areana on November 21, 1991, then again on August 13, 1991 in West Hollywood (at Tower Records), and August 13, 1999 at the Irvine Meadows pre-concert “meet and greet”. Tom also signed in Las Vegas as he entered The Hard Rock Cafe “The Joint” on August 16, 2005, and at The Hollywood Bowl on June 25, 2008.

To best of my knowledge these are all the times I was able to obtain Tom’s signature. Though I cannot remember exactly when each item was signed and where, I am proud, pleased and very fortunate to simply have obtained what I have from such an amazing musician.


Tom Petty “Hard Promises” CD and cover signed on June 26, 1989, at the Rockline Studios.

This I believe is the very first autograph I obtained by Tom Petty. Though it may just be a signed CD cover, it means a lot to me.

There were many fans waiting for Tom Petty at Rockline on September 4, 1991. I handed him my blue sharpie to use while signing, for which, he then “thanked” me.

One of the finest and most valuable of all the autographs in my collection.

Its hard to see, but if you look real carefully at this poster (click on it to enlarge), you will see that with the exception of the top right quarter of the poster, there is a plastic film over the rest of the poster. I left the plastic on to preserve the integrity of the poster however leaving a portion large enough for Tom to sign. Instead, though I even pointed to Tom where to sign, he signed on the plastic covering of the top left quarter (full signature).

I then pointed that out to him that he signed over the plastic to which he then added his initials to the top right portion that actually is then signed on the poster. My framer told me to “do nothing”, as to let him frame it fully as is, and forever tell the back story as to both signatures upon the entire poster.

Fully signed “Pack Up The Plantation” LP autographed by each member of the 1985 Heartbreakers, the year the album was released.
