A quick note if I may: close to 20, maybe 25 years ago, through a close friend of my father's, I was told if I ever wanted anything autographed by Joe Pesci, I could just drop everything off at one of his homes in NJ (this was when I was much more of an autograph hound with a TON more time on my hands). I was very nervous but when I arrived, I was not only welcomed through his gates but got to go in his home and he was actually home to meet him. I felt like a tool because I had blabbed to people at work that I was just "dropping off" photos and then to actually give them TO HIM was surreal ("Goodfellas", "Lethal Weapon" and "Casino" pics all were in my hands). I remember his house was all in white and by the front door he had a giant framed pic of him and DeNiro in "Raging Bull." The best part? Before I left, he signed a photo for me from HIS collection. After learning my first name is Vincent, he signed a B&W promo shot from a certain movie with the inscription:

"To My Cousin Vinny, God is Good. Joe Pesci."
Wow Vinny..that's an unreal story...Pesci was a class act..did your dad's friend know him personally? Inside Pesci's home..that's something else dude!

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 talk about the photo op collectors from the 1980s or 90s, I'm sure we'll be talking about your photo ops 20 years from now!

Hey...sorry I just saw your question about going to Pesci's house.

One of my Dad's friends was a Deacon (he married my brother and sister-in'-law). "Deacon Lou" would constantly be hanging out with the Pescis bc, if I remember correctly, Joe had a daughter with special needs and went to the school "Deacon Lou" ran. And, yes..IN THE HOUSE...Pesci and his family were cooking chicken and eggplant parm when I arrived and like I said earlier, the house was all in white.

In return , please bring me with you so I can get a photo op with Bobby D! LOL!
