Received an e mail today that I thought might be spam in my inbox. I wasn't sure what to think of it and if it was a scam of some sort, what they were after. So, I did a bit of looking around the internet and found that this person is an autograph collector who requests them from a variety of people in different types of performing arts. Pat and I will be sending them an autographed photo and if any of you wish to send yours, here's the e mail:

Hello, I am a collector of 63 years, researcher and enthusiastic visitor to the
Circus as a child, I would like to enlarge my collection with autographs of
talented street artists, experimental theater, puppet, Burlesque, street
theater, urban theater and dining. It could send a photo or a poster
autographed? Thank you and wish you luck and lots of smiles.

I have not seen that but in my travels around the world people do collect autographs of those who they find interesting and fame has nothing to do with it, kinda makes one feel special.

I've been collecting autographs for years and have several hundred of them. When I was younger, I used to send letters seeking autographs to folks via snail mail. There are books out there that compile addresses of all kinds of famous (and infamous) folks. Surprisingly, a large percentage of folks I wrote to returned an autographed picture or something else interesting. I once obtained Elton John's autograph by sending him a First Day Cover of an AIDS stamp, and he returned it to me signed. I sent golf balls to Bob Hope and he sent three back with his signature. Noted Playbor cartoonist of the wierd, Gahan Wilson, sent me his autograph and a wierd bat cartoon. It's an interesting hobby. But you also must be careful about secretarial and autopen signatures, which are meaningless to the collector. They must be authentic and there are ways of testing for that.

Autograph trivia question: Who are the two of the most elusive autographs to collectors?

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I'm probably one of the two. I've never given my autograph to a collector.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Nope.....JFK is one.....he developed the use of autopen and consequently rarely signed or penned any personal letters officially. His signature is quite valuable, especially if personalized on a note or something like that.

The second one (actually, the most elusive of all) is one you'll have to reach for; he won't be easy. Big clue right there, it's a "He."

I'll include that in my collection notes. Lobo has never given an autograph to a collector, which begs the question: has he ever been asked by a collector? Smile

Persuant to a conversation I had this morning, neither, as far as I know, does Leonhard Euler.

I have Neil Armstrong's signature on a sheet of the First Man on the Moon stamps I obtained back in the nineties. And Alan Shepard's on the 4 cent Project Mercury stamp sheet.

William Shakespeare, and he's actually number one. His signature is extremely rare to collectors.

My fault; by elusive, I meant the most difficult to find simply because there aren't many of them. And if you find a real one, you have something of value. Even folks who refuse to sign, still sign their names on contracts, checks, etc. and they are out there for purchase by collectors.

Pat and I just watched the movie Anonymous last week which is based on one of the many theories that Shakespeare in fact did not write the work that bears his name. The movie has had mixed reviews, but we both enjoyed it. Made the Bard look rather like a fool.
