I am sure this has been a prior thread but just thought I would put this out there. Just curious who was the first celebrity you ever met and how was your experience with him or her.

When I was a teenager, Bam Bam Bigelow did an appearance at a temple of all places. He had a Q&A and the pics and autos were free. He was very friendly and a real down to earth guy. Sad to see him go so early.

A very young and slender with hair photo of yours truly with a great guy...

my first celebrity meet was Jason Mewes at a Grand Union when he was at the pharmacy waiting to pick up a prescription.

Technically it was Robert Culp from I Spy and The Greatest American Hero. I say technically because I have no memory, but he was at an auto show in NY when I was like 6, and my father talked to him for 20 minutes about cars before realizing who it was. I guess he was paid to appear but nobody was even going up to him. After that, gosh, not sure, probably one of the NY Giants at training camp in 88-89 era.

My first celebrity was actor John De Lancie (Q in Star Trek The Next Generation) at a very small Star Trek convention in Laurel, MD in 1994.. I wasn't getting photo ops back then but I got an autograph from him that day

would've been my first wrestling show, which surprisingly came to my local town, when I was about 10 or 11. Guys that ran the Montreal-circuit and I would watch every Sunday on TV station CFCF12. Guys I got autos from included Tarzan "the Boot" Tyler, Johnny War Eagle and Billy Two Rivers, Eduard Carpentier, Paul Leduc, Yvon Robert Jr. ... (I know, I know, I'm dating myself here...)

Marc Brown, author and creator of the "Arthur" children books. My parents took me to a book signing at F.A.O. Schwarz in NYC and it's one of my earliest memories. I still have two signed Arthur books and a picture with him.
