Two fully signed Eagles first LP mobile’s which were once part of a larger hanging display.
Please note that many of these EAGLES signatures date back over 30+ years ago.
Please also note the amount of personally inscribed items and the fact that only the members that played on the product signed/autographed the items. The completes, are true completes.
Perhaps the largest and most authentic collection of signed Eagles memorabilia on the internet.
The band Eagles still remain so caught up with the re-selling of their signature and the worry of signing for what they perceive are non real fans. However, it wasn’t always that way: In what I refer to as “their solo years”, between 1980 – 1994, these Eagles band members were signing literally anything and almost everything that they were handed and for what amounts to as FREE. In addition, I never stopped to pay much attention to how any of the 7 members were signing my items or how on “this day” the signature was a bit different than “that day”.
I was both happy and thankful to receive their autograph (and still am) on “any day”.
Two outside covers and a 4 inners pages of the 1985 Farm Aid Program,
all signed by Don Henley, again showing the variances of this mans signature.
Two of the last signatures that I ever received from Randy Meisner. Autographed in 2012.
SPECIAL NOTE on my relationship with my favorite Eagle, Randy Meisner:
I have seen Randy Meisner is various solo concerts in the states of Oregon, Mississippi, Nevada, Utah and Washington, as well as over a dozen times here in California starting in 1987, up until just before he retired from touring around 2006/2007.
Randy and his then wife Lana were very kind and generous to me. They sent me Christmas cards for about a 10 year period and I was always welcomed to call Lana on her cell phone and check on Randy’s health, or just to say hello. Randy was always as friendly and as generous with his time, his stories and his autograph, as a celebrity could possibly be. Randy has always been above and beyond to myself and so many others fans during the time that I had interaction and friendship with him.
I truly hold deep personal thoughts and very special memories of Randy Meisner;
one of the most beautiful and amazing voices in all of Rock and Roll.
Signed CD covers were very popular and very easy to get signed.
However, after the CD craze died down I looked at many of my signed covers with multiple signatures from a band all squeezed onto such a small surface and noticed the quality of the signed items just wasn’t always that good. Such was the case with 4, 5 or more signatures of the Eagles on many of the CD covers I obtained.
These are 10 signed of the best complete signed CD’s that I collected.
WHAT TO DO WITH A BUNCH OF PARTIALLY AUTOGRAPHED CD COVERS:
As the CD craze was coming to a close, and my interest changed to getting more albums signed, thus I stopped what I now call, “time and opportunity wasted” in CD Covers.
The signatures on the above 1994 Hell Freezes Over Tour Book was NOT obtained by me, nor in person. It was obtained during a limited time through a website link on the Eagles Official Website/Store.
For the longest time I thought I purchased this signed Tour Book via the EAGLES website in 1994 or 1995.
Actually, I have been reminded that it was at the January 1, 1995 Rose Bowl Show in Pasadena, that the merchandise stand gave away a booklet (or order forms) to where this Tour Book (as well as signed T-Shirts, Don Henley drum sticks with signed certificates, and a host of other non autographed sweaters, shirts, and concert items) were sold through a merchandise company.
These specialty signed and very limited quantity items were not sold via their website (they probably did not even have a website yet) or sold at the stadium. It was the acoustic guitars and the signed box set (with the New Year’s Eve live cuts), sold around 2001 that were sold via their website https://eagles.com/ .
TRY AND GET DON HENLEY TO SIGN
SOMETHING LIKE THIS THESE DAYS:
The inscribed drumhead was signed by Don Henley at the KLSX Record Swap at The Bonaventure Hotel on December 7, 1991. Personally inscribed and including “Best Wishes” makes this truly an amazing piece of very rare Don Henley memorabilia.
December 7, 1991, the day Don Henley was at the 97.1 KLSX Record Swap and Convention at the Bonaventure Hotel. For a period of about 4 hours, he sat at a chair and signed hundreds of autographs, for free, for the fans that attended.
It is the day I received about 40+ signatures during that day, by Don Henley. A day, that has never been duplicated, at least here in Los Angeles, ever since.
THANK YOU MR. JACK TEMPCHIN
Personally signed ” History of the Eagles” Tour Program by Eagles producer, writer and solo artist Jack Tempchin. Autographed prior to he and Timothy B. Schmit’s concert at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on January 7, 2017.
One of a total of 3 such signed Tour Books by Mr. Tempchin.
To this day, I still cannot believe the detail that Glenn provided above:
It was very rare to have Glenn Frey autograph anything more than just his name and perhaps an inscription when asked to sign. I have seen very, very few detailed inscriptions on any Glenn Frey autographs in over 30 years of collecting.
This extra inscribed, autographed photo is a very rare score.
Two 45rpm Picture Sleeves personally signed and inscribed by Don Henley.
Returned mailed response from Eagles manager Irving Azoff stating the “plans”, or non plans, of what the band is going to do with the Decembery 31, 1999 New Years Eve concert footage filmed at The Staples Center.
THE AUTOGRAPHED BOX SET
The signatures on the above Box Set is yet another in a series of pre-autographed
items of memorabilia (acoustic guitar, drum sticks, 1994 Tour Books, T-Shirts) that
was available during a limited time through a website link on the Eagles Official Website/Store.
Signed boldly by Timothy B. Schmit at the Ringo Starr All-Star
concert on August 12, 1992, at the Los Angeles Greek Theatre.
Signed inner page of the 1994 Hell Freezes Over Tour Book
by Timothy B. Schmit, at Club Largo in Los Angeles

These are 8 signed photographs obtained
directly from Don Felder’s website.
This is exactly the type of system artists can use to help supply
REAL and AUTHENTIC signatures for fans to enjoy,
all the while cutting down the need to have
celebrities chased stalked out in the streets.
The two above autographed photos were purchased
directly from Don Felder’s web site.
(they were not signed in person).
Another fantastic means for fans in all
states to obtain and keep real autographs.
Autographed posters that Don Felder had on his website for sale during 2017/2018.
Another fantastic means for fans in all states to obtain and keep real autographs.

Official Eagles signed guitar signed by Timothy B. Schmit, Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Joe Walsh. Purchased directly from the band’s website in 2009.
Here is the link that sells various band merchandise, and from time to time even autographed items from the band Eagles: http://eagles.shop.musictoday.com/content/mlp/525/default.aspx
Bernie Leadon had no problem and was very happy to sign this guitar at club Genghis in Los Angeles on September 30, 2003. Bernie has always been incredibly friendly and generous, every time I have had the pleasure of seeing and speaking with him.
Bernie is an incredibly talented musician that still this day has not fully received the credit that he deserves for all that he has contributed to Rock and Roll.
With the passing of Glenn Frey on January 16, 2016,
the following signed items of memorabilia can never be completed as fully signed Eagles band autographs. With respect to the many difficulties it can often take to obtain Don Henley’s signature, these items will in all probability remain as you see them here as they were at the time of Glenn Frey’s passing. I will now concentrate my efforts of collecting only solo signatures from the remaining band members.
The above albums, tour books and sheet music can never be “completed”.
These memorabilia items were being worked on at the time of Glenn Frey’s passing.
Though incomplete, they are very much worth highlighting within this collection.
THE FOLLOWING ARE CD COVERS
CD’s for a while where “THEE” items to get signed.
However, the CD craze passed by and even though a couple of these covers are signed by Glenn Frey, with the difficulties of Don Henley and Don Felder especially wanting to sign anything Eagles related, I rather have these CD covers stay as you see them now and focus my efforts to obtain solo signed items of memorabilia.
Even partially completed, each showcases the penmanship of the band members.
THE FOLLOWING ARE SIGNED ALBUMS,
INNER LP POSTERS AND/OR SLEEVES
I am often asked, “do you know when Don Henley or Glenn Frey signed this album”?
With a collection this size that began over 35+ years ago, it is impossible to say with absolute date certainty as to exactly when each signature was obtained. There are over 500 signatures from these 7 members on this page alone.
There are some dates that do have a remembrance more so than others:
Don Henley, December 7, 1991 was a date where Mr. Henley autographed over 40+ items for me at the KLSX Record Swap and Convention at The Los Angeles Bonaventure Hotel.
The week of November 16 thru the 20th, 1992, Glenn Frey autographed about a dozen items for me as he was at KLOS Radio (11/16/1992), The Coach House Theater in San Juan Capistrano (11/18/1992) and The Ventura Theater (11/20/1992).
Glenn Frey also signed 4 albums for me as he arrived for the Super Bowl pre-game show at the Pasadena Rose Bowl on January 31, 1993.
However, pin pointing as to when a signature was signed,
via pre Ebay and internet,was never a concern or especially
even a thought of mine back in those very early days.
A complete win/win for both Don Felder and his fans:
Sold from his website during 2020, is the signed American Rock and Roll album.
I purchased the above 4 signed albums directly from Don Felder’s website in May of 2020.
Autographed solo albums signed by Timothy B. Schmit at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on November 30, 2011 and on January 7, 2017.
Sometimes Timothy B. Schmit is in a happy mood to sign, and sometimes he just isn’t. Thus by the full signature on his Expando album, and his “first name only” on his Leap Of Faith album. Either way, I feel very fortunate to add these signed solo albums, however they are signed, to my collection.
SPECIAL NOTE: Not only are all these albums signed as complete, but more importantly they are signed by only those members that actually were members of the band and performed on that album. Past members did not autograph later albums, and later members did not autograph the earlier albums. These are the truest of complete Eagles band signed albums.
COLLECTING AUTOGRAPHS FROM ANY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE BAND, EAGLES, TRULY DEFINES THE PHRASE, “THE LONG RUN”.
