Cpt. Caveman's TTM Autographs #79

Welcome back to another weekly TTM success post. Sadly we lost an amazing author this week when William Peter Blatty passed away. Blatty who wrote the book and film screenplay "'The Exorcist" was 89. So a signed or endorsed check can be a great way to add to your collection but make sure you do your homework because I'm now seeing dealers that are selling fake reproduction checks. These checks look like the real deal with signatures from legends like Babe Ruth or Marilyn Monroe just to name a few but are actually nothing more than high quality fake copies being sold anywhere from $25 to $50. So if your thinking about purchasing a signed check on sites like EBay make sure you look at the description and do your research to make sure what you're purchasing is actually authentic. Now on to this weeks TTM successes. Monday brought a cool return when I finally received my fist attempt to Rod Stewart back after a three year wait. We had totally given up on this one and I had rewrote a year later then Winter rewrote a while after that and now all three have finally returned. Tuesday brought a great reply from Teri Garr who signed both our Star Trek pictures and it only took her one month to return. Thursday brought another great Star Trek return when we received both pictures back signed from Marj Dusay. She even signed one on the front and back and took just over two weeks to return. Friday brought yet another amazing Star Trek return when we received both pictures back signed from Roger Perry and after only two weeks. This success has also just pushed my collection total up to 1500 autographs so his return is an extra special one for me. Saturday brought one last return for the week when we received our "SOAP" DVD cover that was already signed by Diana Canova back signed by Billy Crystal. This might be an autopenned signature because IV been hearing that he's sending all fan mail to Spanky Taylor now so ill have to do some more research. Well unfortunately I did some investigating and it appears Billy Crystal has stopped signing. There's been a bunch of returns this week and they all look to have returned autopenned from Spanky. Everyone I have looked at is identical to ours and under a lens you can definitely see the markings of an AP. He used to sign some. We got him to sign two a good while ago but I guess he's finally finished signing. IT took just over six months for this one to return. That's it for this week. Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week with more TTM autographs and addresses and don't forget Monday is a federal holiday here in the States so no mail.
