Send-in results from the ARNOLD signing!

Celebrity Authentics did a signing with one of my top wants - the Governator himself, Arnold Shwarzenegger! Like many big-name private signings, it took forever to get a scheduled date for him to actually sign the stuff, but earlier this month they confirmed a date, and I just got my stuff back! I had gotten in on the pre-order, and I got a 16x24 Commando poster, and a full 27x40 Terminator poster.

I was pretty happy with the results - good quality posters, good graphs, and everything signed in the common sense locations. Cost a lot of $$$$, but for what's probably my #1 want in the hobby, I was happy to pay it.

These should be some worthy nominations for autograph of the year

Wow! Excellent items dude! I'm almost afraid to ask how much it set u back, but I have a pretty good idea. My buddy just sent in a poster to CA for a Samuel Jackson signing and it'd costing him $600.00!! :yikes: That's alot of :fuckmoney: and he's no Arnie either!!
Great additions to ur collection AJ! :clap:

Yeah, I was toying with the idea of putting SLJ on a Jackie Brown poster that already has Pam Grier on it, but it actually would have cost me MORE than what I paid for an Arnold poster! So that was an easy pass.

Man, talk about insane, but u should check out the pre-order and final cost for Harrison Ford on Star Wars merch! Fucking nuts...excuse my French! How they expect anyone to be able to afford these graphs? Ugh :melopain:

Well think about it for a second Dave...If you are someone who passes on a lot of these lesser names doing conventions and don't go to so many shows you end up saving a lot of money and can opt instead for something like this.....I'm am starting to sway more in the direction of the higher end graphs and limiting the shows I go to myself.

Great posters AJ. Frankly I don't think Arnie was that crazy priced with CA. The problem, like Harrison Ford, is they sell out of send in's really fast.

Well, it took me less than a second to think about it and nope...I can't justify paying all that :fuckmoney: for just one person, whereas I can attend a con and obtain multiple wants. However, when it gets to a point where I kno I'll never be able to get Harrison Ford in person, I may just have to resort to these types of private signings. Sigh...

I wonder what his autograph looks like when he's signing on the street, and whether or not when he's signing on the street, the product he signed has less value than when the product is a mail-in. Looks good

Arnold gives a fairly good graph on the street. He's not a douche like Ryan Reynolds, Downey Jr., Henry Cavill, or even Deniro, that are illegible.
