Default Do you have any cool autographs?

This thread got me googling autographs (https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=628501)
And I came across this list about the most expensive autographs:

George Washington’s Acts of Congress: $9.8 Million
Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation: $3.7 Million
John Lennon’s Murderer Signed LP: $525,000
Babe Ruth’s Baseball: $388,375
Jimi Hendrix’s Contract: $200,000
Joe DiMaggio & Marilyn Monroe’s Baseball: $191,200
Albert Einstein’s Photo: $75,000
Jimmy Page’s Guitar: $73,000
Jesse James’s Photo: $52,000
John F. Kennedy’s Newspaper: $39,000

So, you guys have any cool ones?

Dom DiMaggio, Graig Nettles, Dave Winfield, Don Baylor, Billy Martin, Andre Roberton, Willie Randolph

Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Tony Atlas, Tiger Conway Jr, The Great Kabuki

Ted Nugent and Toby Keith came to Afghanistan in 2003 and visited our FOB. I spent a good bit of time with them both and got autographs from both. Ted signed a bowhunter magazine and I have it in a frame in my home office. Good memories.

Sort of.

About 20 years ago my wife had her realtor license and worked with a broker who headed up property acquisitions of Olajuwon Holdings when they were buying land for Denny's restaurants in the Houston area, maybe other areas as well but not sure about that.

Anyway, The Chronicle had an issue with a fold out that has Hakeem, Clyde, Charles, Mario Ellie, Kevin Willis and Matt Maloney on it. My wife gave it to the broker and Olajuwon had the entire team sign it.

I still have it in a display frame around here somewhere but it's packed away in anticipation of us moving in the not too terribly distant future.

I took Vice President Cheney hunting a few times, got him to sign an unfired 20 guage shell the week before he shot the lawyer.

I also got T. Boone Pickens to sign his interview in Playboy magazine when I worked for Pickens.

In ‘95, I bought several dozen Poe’s 400 crankbaits, and when going thru them, I found one that had the bill glued in upside down. I qualified for the BASS MASTER CLASSIC that year, and they send you 2 tackle boxes, and that is all the tackle that you can carry to the event, along with 7 rods and reels and I think I was able to carry 1 extra reel. Anyway, I packed that Poe’s 400 in the package in my tacklebox. First day of Classic, David Fritts was in his boat a couple boats from mine, so I took the bait to him and asked him how to use it😆. He looked at it a second or two and smiled and replied, “it’ll be kinda hard”. Got him to autograph my upside down Poe’s 400. 👍. I also have a baseball and t-shirt signed by Ozzie Smith.

This thread got me thinking and I went and grabbed a box where I knew I had some signed balls from my time working at Yankee Stadium 93-01. Many great world series years.
Baseballs signed. Some are world series balls.
David Wells, Doc Gooden, David Cone, Fred McGriff, Bernie Williams, Harold Reynolds, Al Kaline, Jim Palmer, Darryl Strawberry, Andy Pettitte, Greg Maddux, John Smoltz, Hideki Irabu, Cecil Fielder, Time Raines, Ozzie Smith, Jim Leyritz and Wade Boggs on a mini bat.

On one ball, a 98 world series ball. I have Joe Torre, Tino Martinez, Ramiro Mendoza, Chilli Davis.
Another multi signed ball with Davis Cone, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada and Grahme Lloyd, Tim Raines, Tino martinez, Doc Gooden, Paul Oniell, Darryl Strawberry, Mariano Rivera.

Have to see what these are worth. Thinking about parting with them all. Turn them into things made of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber
