    I have golf pro relatives who will personally testify Tiger Woods doesn't sign.

    Other terrible signers?

    Would you believe Will Ferrell?

    He was present in the ballpark before the game signing autographs at the table where I picked up the picture. I was stupid to think it was a stamp, I guess, but I was probably about eleven or twelve at the time. I've never checked on value or anything; I kind of assumed that he signed so much, doing minor league tours and the likes, that it was pretty common. I'll have to check it out.

    I love stories like this.

    One of my neighbors was talking today about autographs and he said he had only one: Neil Armstrong.

    Checked it out and it's probably worth 12 grand.

    He has one. And it's a freaking doozy.

    I've been collecting for years, I have over a hundred and they are all pretty good names. Not one anywhere near that kind of value.

    Neil Armstrong hasn't signed autographs in 30 years and he just passed away, which means the market is pretty limited.

    The fact he was at a ballpark signing for people is terrific.

    Someone like, say, Mick Jagger knows his autograph is an $800 value- so he now just refuses to sign and basically sells his signature on prints on the Stones website.

    They had a signing of 1000 posters which sell for 2 grand a set.

    That's 2 million in signature sales. Unreal.

    And if you buy one you'll probably make out on the deal eventually.

    Re: The Autograph Thread

    My father's cousin sold peanuts at Yankee Stadium in the 50s. He and another guy won a contest and won an autographed ball. He gave it to my father as a gift. For years we couldn't figure out why all these names were on the same ball. Speaker. DiMaggio. HR Baker. Foxx. Gomez. Hartnett. Waner. Mize. Frisch. I think roughly 20 HoFs.

    Years go by and my father gets me a baseball book called Every Pitcher has a Story, or something to that effect. In there is a story and a letter from Nixon in 1955 to the Yankees thanking them for the invitation to Yankee Stadium hall of fame day. It named a ton of the guys who were on the ball and lined up with the explanation my father was given as to the origin of the ball. Pretty random. More random was that the letter was recently auctioned off. We were out bid but I thought it would have been great to pair with the ball.

    The most upsetting part was two of the names on the letter who did not sign the ball. Ty Cobb and Cy Young. But we have most of the other names.

    I have a Manute Bol. Only autograph I ever got. Saw him in a hotel lobby and I was awestruck.

    My dad got me a Yaz autograph at the 88 All Star game. But, I would never seek one. My cousin pitched I the majors and when he first got called up some of my uncles asked for an autograph. It was one of the most awkward things I can ever remember. I felt really bad for him.

    I avoid awkward situations whenever possible (which is also why I can't watch George Costanza, almost any of Ben Stiller's work, or Curb, even though I know most if that stuff is funny).

    I thought Phil Keaggy was the greatest guitar player I'd ever seen.

    I've seen him live 5 times, all in the 90s. One of those shows was at a church and I had a friend who attended that church. We hung around shooting the bull with him for about 45 minutes afterwards. He signed the liner for one of his CDs I had. The music's now on my iPod, but I haven't lost the CD or the case. The guy is phenomenal, acoustic or electric and his voice reminds me a lot of McCartney.

    Re: The Autograph Thread

    I would never sell any of the autographs because they only have sentimental value to me. When I see a celebrity, I try to get a picture instead because it means more to me. For example the fantastic Charlie Sheen picture to me left where he looks just awful.

    I have also been on a pretty big luck streak in regards to NHL players the last year. Got my picture with kris Draper, Shea Weber, Jonathan Toews, Jeremy Roenick, the Blackawks GM, Calgary Flames GM, and various other less known Blackhawk players.
