Re: CSA Show and other meets around CSA show

I'm not sure, I know CSA used to be awesome with table photo ops in early 2000s but by mid 2000s (with old staff) they were starting to get away from it unless the player who super friendly and from my experience it was a combination of an unfriendly player or an unfriendly staff member with a so-so...

Re: ICW's Day of Extreme

Awesome meets!
Any idea why Tommy Rich wasn't with the other FBI guys, he played "Big Don Tommy Rich" who I think was the manager of the group.

Re: CSA Show and other meets around CSA show

Definitely sweet photos! Especially sweet score with Pete Rose considering he is one of those "all about the money" types. I get you don't know Dan Marino and Joe Namath from their sports fame (it's admirable you like them for their lesser known roles) but they are huge names in sports. Namath is ge...

Incidentally, he was my first ever celebrity photo op.
When and where did you get him?

I met him at 2003 World of Wheels but either the photo never took or I've lost it as I remember shaking his hand in the photo but I cant find it.
Next year 2004 was R. Lee Ermey. Both really nice guys.

Re: Hall of Famer Johnny Valiant

Sweet photo op, Steve. Johnny's was never too animated in photo ops but he was a great guy and multi talented. Bruno Sammartino was everyone's hero for his in and out of ring actions and so many people are obviously very devastated with his passing, as was I. The Valiant Brothers are my heroes for t...

Hall of Famer Johnny Valiant

As many know by now Johnny Valiant has died. He was one of the first few Hall of Fame classes so you know he was very important to Vince McMahon and/or the earlier history of WWF. After leaving WWF in 1988 he seemed to largely be done with fame except for the autograph signings and comedy shows (tho...

Re: Killers, Bulls, Kongs and more - the Japan Report!

What an experience!
Just 14 days in to the new year and this has to be a contender for next years year end voting! Some of these character's gimmicks were so intimidating but they are so nice and welcome you with literal open arms to their establishments. So cool!!

Re: Meeting the Mob: A Cuppa Goodfellas, an Irishman, Hoffa, Capone & My Cousin Vinny!!!

Epic report with some of the biggest names! I've never seen a Joe Pesci photo, at least I haven't. Great autographs, too. The Al is a full signature on the top and a short signature on the bottom. Though the short sig is even a full signature compared to his "line" that he gives when crowded. As we ...

Re: I faced the FIFTH ELEMENT and had to DIE HARD

The Bruce photo op is amazing. Clear, front face image of him looking at the camera and smiling which, you have to imagine he doesn't do too often judging from other fans interactions. PLUS, three autographs from such a tough signer .

Re: Bill Murray mini report

That is epic, Steve. I love the look on Bill's face. Maybe this donation thing will really get him going on signing. It's crazy though, how tough he has been with photo ops versus signing.

Re: OJ Simpson to do a NE signing?

He still has 5 more years of parole. Sentence was 25 years and he served 9 and he still has 5 more years. He must really be kicking himself for not taking the plea deal where he would have been out and scott free after 2.5 years. He probably figured jail time would never happen. How many celebritie...

Re: Bobby "The Brain" Heenan passes away

It's sad what cancer did to him but luckily he survived these last 15 years. Cancer takes so many people far too soon, despite the treatments. Hopefully he and his family got to spend some quality time together, despite the illness. He was such a talent yet listening to him on commentary, he or his ...

Re: Forced Validity

This guy is putting way too much thought into his McCartney. Without me looking at the video, does Paul even have a clue someone is behind him? Worst of all, I've seen this guy's other celebrity pictures and he has a ton of A listers all heelorton quality. He needs to forget about Paul-he refused hi...

Re: Metal Report: Purple, Maiden, Pantera, a Drunk Jericho & More!!!

Chris Jericho has definitely changed for the worst, IMO. I met him three times in organized signings since 1997-2011 and he was so fan friendly and over the last few years I'm hearing such horror stories about him. One recent included not signing the item a fan had for him but also taking (asking to...

Re: Screenrant's Actors Who Are Jerks (And Some Who Are Nice)

In the early 2000s Autograph Magazine (now Autograph Live) would run best signers every year. Tom Hanks would always be ranked in the top few best ones.
Now it's crazy to think how he is so tough to take photos with fans who wait but will happen upon a random person and take a photo with them.
