Michael Jackson

Written by Stephen Koschal on Wednesday, 16 July 2014. Posted in Music

Attention collector's and dealers. It seems since early last year there has been a flood of people offering the signature of Michael Jackson at prices from $75.00 to $300.00.  

Problem is not one of them have been genuine. The sellers say the signature was cut out of one of his signed books.  The book the signature came out of is titled Moonwalk. This was Michael Jackson's Autobiography published in February 1988 with a Forward by Jacqueline Onassis. 

These signatures are printed signatures and every copy of Moonwalk has one of them.  One of these signatures, especially if framed  with a photo of Jackson could possibly fool the average collector. Beware!

    Formula One testings in Barcelona 2011

    All the interest was focused on Sebastian. During the day it was nearly impossible to collect his autograph. But there was a good chance in the late evening. Then all the fans were away so we got our requested signatures. Great to see that Sebastian is still very kind although he is a Champion!

    Jenson Button:

    Jenson was difficult to collect. His Motohome war located inside the paddock and everytime he had a break of testing he disappeared inside. The only chance to collect his autograph was to wait in front of his truck. Then it was possible to get 1 autograph.

  • FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona is one of the biggest football clubs in the whole world. The club sells souvenirs for thousands of Euro year after year and hits next sales records. It seems to me that original, received in-person autograph could be better and more valuable item than next scarf or t-shirt. This is why so much fans decide to go to FC Barcelona training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. I was there several times and I did not regret at all even if I did not collect lots of signed photos.

    Ferrari:

    It was quite unusual to see Sebastian Vettel in red colors. But good news: he is still the most friendly driver in the F1 paddock. He had really fun to sign Ferrari pictures, although he does not sign as much as in the past. But still very satisfying.

    Kimi was like always. He signed one photograph per meeting, but it was really tough to meet and get him.
