Re: Autograph "Is It Real" Thread

You should check "autograph magazine live" or on facebook "autographs 101"
Both are more geared towards rendering opinions on real or fake autographs. I think either site is just as qualified (especially aml) to render opinions as JSA or PSA or those so called expert authenticators.

Re: Taking the Holiday Road to an NYC Vacation

Wow, what a great photo op! And she's got an amazing signature for a freebie. I know her autograph has really never varied from looking good but most of what is given for free is trash graphs from celebrities.

Re: Marti Funk allegedly ruins fans Dory Funk Jr. autograph because he didn't pay for it

That's really a shame. Why would a human being do that to someone else and feel it's appropriate? Those cards especially are very valuable. Also people try to make a complete set of autographed cards with is a huge task. Some things wrestlers or their agents or in this case family member acting as a...

Re: PW Insider: Lio Rush may be sent back down to NXT due to backstage behavior

Did he really carry the Kliq's bags or is that something that Triple H's haters just say? I will say that it was a smart move on his part to buddy up to those guys. Who knows if he would have been successful otherwise? I believe this was spoken of even before he latched on to Stephanie McMahon in t...

Re: April IV: Dick Tracy Arrested my Love Bug!

Awesome meets!

Very curious to know if Annette wouldn't do anything or you just wanted Warren? Someone on autograph magazine live, a few years ago, was at a personal event where he met both of them yet only got a photo with Annette. No interest in Warren, it seemed.

Re: WWE pulls Kurt Angle from Wrestlecade because it "associates" with AEW

They came pretty close to out of business a few times in the 1990s and most non-wrestling related ventures have failed. They have a second XFL venture planned and the first one failed, so you just never know. I grew up on WWF, love the 80s, 90s and early 2000s but learning of some of the horrible th...

Re: WWE pulls Kurt Angle from Wrestlecade because it "associates" with AEW

I don't know why any convention promoter would want to try and work with a WWE talent. There's a better chance than not that WWE will pull this stunt. Even if the wrestler wanted to keep their commitment, WWE's stranglehold over wrestling is so strong that the 40-50 year old wrestler dare not take a...

Re: PW Insider: Lio Rush may be sent back down to NXT due to backstage behavior

I'm all for respecting those who came before you but many times WWE wrestlers have taken it too far. Simple, friendly "ribbing" often went too far. Wasn't Mark Henry himself a recipient of an infamous turd sandwich? I'm sure that was just making sure he was "respecting this business." And now as a v...

Re: Bushwhacker Luke didn't know he was booked for a signing at Walmart

This does not surprise me in the least. Having about five years experience seeing how some promoters work, I've seen many promoters just approach wrestlers at a show and discuss a possible booking without giving any information whatsoever except getting the wrestlers phone number to call them when i...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

That 2/15/1998 show that Sid no showed was the one I attended with Bundy, Jannetty, Sherri and Nasty Boys. After meeting Sid at the Big Event in March 2017 I actually wonder if he really understands what an autograph signing booking entails. He's done some signings, then "no shows" others yet at Big...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

I would think they do but I don't know exactly. I'm sure Tito would do it if someone got a hair cut. Since it's a style place the lowest priced men's cut is probably higher than your average place and since Tito signs autographs everywhere he can't be too stingy with his autograph. He also has a set...

Re: Legends of the Ring 28 (June 1st, 2019)

I'm assuming you're referring to the show Tim Beall promoted. I was supposed to hit that show that weekend but MD got hit with a snowstorm that weekend. I think it was either 2007/2008? From what I heard it was a great show to clean up on guests It was March 27, 2006 to be exact. I have a friend wi...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

I think back then Dave would throw crap at the wall and if it stuck, hope fans wouldn't question it. Why would Warrior be scheduled to participate in Survivor Series events when he no showed all the way back to late June and had already been written out of everything for TV. He was replaced by Psych...

Re: Legends of the Ring 28 (June 1st, 2019)

I think he would personalize if you asked. I met him at a poorly attended show in Baltimore in early 2006. The show had a large number of WWE hall of famers but for whatever circumstances only had about 20 fans the entire day. That was Jack's first ever signing post WWF. He had no agent and no set f...

Re: Friday Night Fever at Chiller

Very cool. I would enjoy seeing your other Cheryl Ladd photos.
It's nice a lot of these chiller guests stand up for photos and some go to in front of the table.
