Cpt. Caveman's TTM Autographs #106

Welcome back to another weekly TTM success post. Sadly we lost two legends last weekend. First the amazing actor Martin Landau passed away at the age of 89. Then legendary horror film director George A. Romero passed away at the age of 77. Most remember him from his Zombie films "Night of the living Dead", "Dawn of the Dead", "Day of the Dead", "Land of the Dead", "Diary of the Dead" and "Survival of the Dead". Along with all the great zombie movies he also brought us horror films like "The Crazies", "Monkey Shines", "The Dark Half" and one of my favorites "Creepshow". His passing is a great loss and he will be missed by fans and horror lovers everywhere. So I see alot of the in person graphers using painters tape with instructions on how and where to sign on an item. I'm also seeing some TTM graphers using this technique on photos they send to get signed. I've never done this either in person or TTM. I'm usually just happy to get something signed and don't worry about if it's signed in the perfect spot. To me it just seems a little pushy to give instructions for when they sign TTM. Now if its a paid signing sure I can see it being ok. You're paying for a service but when requesting a free autograph TTM I'd rather just take what they give me and be happy I got something back in the first place. Possibly if I was working on a multi cast signed piece TTM this may be something I'd try to ensure they sign in the proper place to leave room for others to sign. Anyways now on to this weeks TTM successes. Monday brought one return. After just under a month we received our VHS box from "Star Trek II" back signed by Judson Scott. He also sent us three nice signed 8x10's and returned our SASE unused. Great addition to our Trek collection. I'm working on getting all the VHS covers from my old box set of all the original movies signed by one cast member then I'll display the lot. Tuesday brought a super cool success from David Tennant who signed the one "Dr. Who" photo we sent him and it only took two months to return. Friday brought one return when we received a nice pre signed 5x7 from Neil deGrasse Tyson after only two weeks. Saturday brought one last return for this week when Winter received a nice autopenned picture from Michael Jordan after just under a month. They also sent her some stickers, a bookmark and a few other things. Nothing actually signed but she's happy. That's all for this week. Have a great graphing weekend and I'll be back next week with more TTM autographs and addresses.

Cpt. Caveman's TTM Autographs #105



Welcome back to another weekly TTM success post. I guess by now most everyone has heard about the great Dak Prescott autopen mystery but for those of you that haven't. Some of the new Panini Prizm Dak Prescott autographed football cards the kind collectors love pulling from card packs or the ones they can get through redemption cards have reportedly been signed by an autopen machine. Now Dak and his management put out a statement saying they have no clue how this happened after Beckett Grading helped shed light on the problem and is currently refusing to authenticate them. So because of the autopen discovery Panini has now recalled the bad cards and is reissuing new signed cards. They even announced that they have extended the exclusive contract they had with Dak. This brings up something I've always thought about. Are those pulled autograph cards authentic? I have alot of autograph cards in my collection that I've either pulled from packs and hobby box's or purchased and like many other collectors just assumed that the signatures have to be 100% authentic. Right? I mean don't most come with a handy dandy COA from the card company printed right on the backs of the cards stating congratulations you just received an authentic autograph and usually states they were signed in the presence of a company representative or someone else? So how could autopen signatures get on the cards? Was it Dak's people? Was it Panini? Was it possibly a disgruntled Tony Romo fan with a grudge against Dak? lol, Probably not. Unfortunately we may never know but at least Panini is resolving the problem. This isn't the first time something like this has happened either. Along with autopen autographs I've also seen reports in the past that some celebs or athletes have had other people sign the cards for them and even some of those historical cuts autographs the ones with legends like Babe Ruth or former Presidents and historical figures have also had non authentic signatures like the Lindberg cut card not to long ago. Now I love to study signatures and I've compared my pulled signed cards with authentic examples usually as soon as I pull them or before I purchased one and luckily I have never had this problem but with card companies putting more and more signed cards out every year and the huge amounts of money being made I can see it becoming a huge problem in the future if left unchecked and hopefully card companies will crack down on the standards for how athletes and celebs sign the cards us fans and collectors spend big money for. Now on to this weeks TTM successes. Thursday brought the first and only return of the week when we received a nice signed 5x7 from Dire Straits bassist and legendary musician John Illsley and it only took twenty days after I sent a request on his website. That's all for this week I guess ones better than none lol. Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week with more TTM autographs and addresses.

Cpt. Caveman's TTM Autographs Bonus Post Graphing the PGA Greenbrier Classic Part 5

Welcome back to another bonus in person graphing post. I headed back to the Greenbrier Classic Sunday for the final round. I headed over a little early because I didn't want to miss Bubba Watson when he finished up since he was one of the first to tee off that morning. On the way to the tournament the charter bus that I was on had a tire blowout shortly after leaving the parking area. So we all had to wait for another bus to come and pick us all up. Luckily it didn't put me to behind and I got to the clubhouse just as Bubba was finishing up. He came over and signed down the line then headed inside. After that and while waiting on Phil Mickelson to finish up I got a few golfers to sign cards and had the current West Virginia governor and Greenbrier resort owner Jim Justice sign a hat. When Mickelson finished up he went in to turn in his score card then came back out and signed for almost all the huge crowd of people wanting his autograph and I got my picture signed. I was hoping to run into Jerry West again but I didn't see him all day. While waiting on Jerry Lee Trevino came out and didn't want to sign for the two people asking but I was persistent and he finally signed my ticket while cussing at me the entire time lol. After that I watched a few more players finish up then headed home. It's been a fun and great graphing week and i can't wait until next years Greenbrier Classic. So until then enjoy a few pictures and my autographs from the final round of the Greenbrier Classic.
