If I have found out anything in life, it’s that anything material does have its price.
Sooner or later anything can end up for sale.
With that said, I am pretty proud of the fact that in collecting for over 35 years
I have been able to maintain WITH FEW EXCEPTION that whatever you see on the pages of this website
IS STRICTLY NOT FOR SALE. PLEASE DON’T EVEN ASK.
As I reach the age of 60, and having collected the autographs you see on the following pages
and throughout my website, for over half my life and all of my adult life
the peruviol question continues to get asked:
“What do you plan on doing with all the
autographs and memorabilia that you have collected”?
For OVER 30 years, I had a NO SALE/NO TRADE/PLEASE DO NOT ASK policy when it came to the items that I have collected. I was proud of that fact that I was of a moderate but fortunate means where I did not need to ever sell anything to grow or sustain this collection. I simply continued to collect at was seemed like almost free will. For a brief time in 2015, and with the sudden and unexpected explosion of the concert Meet & Greet and increase amounts of autograph conventions, I sold a small portion of what I considered signatures that had no more real relevance within my collection and not in the direction that I at the time needed to steer my collection. It was also a good time for cleansing many poor quality signatures and many items that I had probably more than I would ever need. After 30 years, I put up a yard sale and really steam cleaned my entire collection. It was the right time and long overdue. The collection took a step back, then went once again full forward. On 2021 during COVID, I had a 2nd bit of cleaning of my collection as keeping so much in boxes I had not opened in over 20 years was simply was simply no means of owning a collection.
Shortly thereafter, the STORE CLOSED signed was once again put back up,
NOTHING YOU SEE ON THIS WEBSITE IS FOR SALE
and the focus was back to solely collecting and growing the collection.
THE FOLLOWING STILL VERY MUCH HOLDS TRUE AND REMAINS UNCHAINGED:
Unless otherwise noted, ALL signatures contained on this website
and in my entire collection were obtained in-person, through
a concert merchandise booth and/or direct from the artists website.
I do not purchase signatures through any internet vendor OR trade with other collectors.
This is probably the most independent and unique assemble
of signed memorabilia you will find in a private fans collection.
IT’S GETTING TOUGHER AND TOUGHER AND TOUGHER TO OBTAIN
autographs in 2021/2022 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 purged or even tossed away, as they are not of the quality that I wish to keep and preserve within such an amazing and hard working collection,
AND THE SIGNATURES ARE GETTING SLOPPIER AND CONTINUALLY UNRECOGNIZABLY RUSHED.
IF the day comes whereas I decide to cash it all in, I can look back and say what a fantastic run it all was. There will still be those bands and those certain signatures that simply mean far too much to me and will get passed down through my kids to a future generation, with strict instructions THAT THESE do not break from the family ownership. My KISS, YES, CHEAP TRICK are the 3 bands that come to mind, then of course so much of the generosity bestowed and so generously given to me by Randy Meisner, Dale Bozzio, and Herb Alpert, and also that I worked so hard in obtaining such as Tom Petty, Brian May, Roger Waters and Elton John.
The future is as bright as it is unknown. Thank you for visiting.
Please feel free to ask me, anything…………..
I wish to THANK each and every artist that has taken the time or made themselves available in any way whatsoever, to take time and autograph the items I have within my collection. Please know that my hard work and dedication in many ways is very similiar to your own, and family sacrafice and well as spent vacation time from work (my real job) has all been spent in my quest to build an amazing personal collection of some beautiful and rare Rock and Roll autographed memorabilia.
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.
