Ask a Question
Which actresses are the nicest?Submitted by: Michael J Betlinski
Haven't gotten any actresses.
I heard some celebs ask trivia questions before they will sign. Have you experienced this and, if so, what happened?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
Not to me personally but I know that Flea asked a guy that I know to name a song from their first album. He didn't know, so he didn't sign.
Why do some celebs refuse to sign autographs with blue markers?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
Because they think blue equals eBay!
Do you ever butter up celebs with gifts and compliments?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
I may say I like a particular album or film that they were in. I've never given a gift. They probably just throw them away anyway!
Have you ever asked a celebrity to sign their full name? What happened?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
I haven't asked that.
What is the biggest misconceptions when it comes to people that sell autographs?Submitted by: David Durocher
Good question- I'm not sure how to answer that! I guess that not all sellers are jerks!
What tips would you offer for someone who wants to get started collecting in person autographs?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
For musicians, know when sound checks are. Don't be a fanboy and freak out when you see a celebrity. Be prepared- have Sharpies and something worthwhile to get signed besides a ticket stub or index card. Both are fine for last resorts.
Do you keep any of the autographs you obtain for yourself?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
I keep most of the autographs for myself unless I get multiples.
How do you avoid having a celebrity personalize the autographs?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
If they ask what my name is, I usually say they can just put their name on it. It that doesn't work, I'll just give them my name.
How do you respond when a celebrity assumes you're an eBay dealer?Submitted by: Chris Michaels
I say it's for my personal collection. For the most part, it usually is! I will then tell them they can personalize it if they want to.
