I've never had someone mandate that something be personalized. I do have a Polaroid that I took with someone that is also personalized from a long time ago attached here (though I'm cropping myself out)!
I still paid him, even though I knew I was getting a little shafted on the price we agreed on .
I didn't care, I had no intention of selling it. Eighteen years later I still feel the
That Springsteen is awesome. Awesome!
Also, I must retract what i said about earlier. There was 1 person who mandated my name when they signed for me...Judi Dench. I really didn't/don't mind though.
Hey Dom, any thoughts on whether the "All Access VIP" package would be worth it at the National Collectors Convention?
The show: http://nsccshow.com/
Some interesting names, but I have no idea if they are common signers or not. I'd be interested in guys like Jim Brown and Dr. J. Probably Deion Sanders also.
I've never gotten into autographs at all, but since this is in Cleveland I'm thinking of taking my father in law. Not in love with the idea of standing in line for hours, so was looking at the VIP and thought you might have some general insight.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
See what their experience was in year's past.
I would think you'll be okay here- these people are there to sign autographs so it should be a good buy.
VIP's for rock concerts are quite different- I'd always be very cautious with meet and greets and such. They are a totally different experience with each band.
Something like you're asking about- see if there are reviews, if not you should still be okay. You just want to make sure you get the sigs you want and that the package gives you an advantage in getting them.
Your inscription trick is cool. Most of the autograph hounds carried glossies and then just applied acetone to remove the inscription.
Robin Givens wouldn't sign her nude photos, so guys would draw bikinis on her in Sharpie, have her sign it, and then apply the acetone to remove the bikini lol...
Why these celebrities care is beyond me...
You could bring a stack of photos to Brad Pitt and he'd sit there, for 20 minutes, examining each photo- I'll sign this one, not going to sign this one...just strange. Though, he is one gracious signer, I'll add that.

Pele was a bust for me. Apparently it was a diaster...
Thankfully I didn't waste too much time here. I saw how crazy the line was an hour before the singing and bowed out. He had a couple of other appearances that I tried for. He briefly signed at 1 (thought it didn't make it to me) and all of the other ones he refused. No wonder his autograph is valuable.
Here's the latest acquisition- a Robert Plant signed guitar with a lyric from Stairway to Heaven. The cool thing is he added "Agh!" afterwards, showing his own tiredness of the song, which is well documented. Pretty sweet.
Was able to get this the other day. I would've loved a ball instead, but it wasn't an option as they had strict rules. I think the signature looks great though!
