View Full Version : Lets' See Your Autographed Stuff

I was gonna put this in another existing thread (http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=347906), but 8BALLDELUXE was looking for "for sale" stuff and since I can't actually say this is really for sale I didn't want to be accused of hijacking. But since I had the photo I thought I'd share. I also thought I'd love to see some other autographed stuff, so if you got it, please share. What do you think?

To be perfectly honest I don't know that this for sale, I suspect everything has it's price. I don't have any idea what the value of something like this would be. I've carried it around for about 20 years hoping to get it signed at pool events (though the last time I had it out was last summer, but no one goes to the APA Team Tournament). It has great sentimental value to me. I always imagined that I'd one day put it in a frame in my own billiard room.... then we had a child, and they can be pretty expensive. So anyways, like I said, I can't actually say this is for sale but I imagine everything has it's price. But if nothing else, pretty much nobody has actually seen this, so I thought I'd share

Pretty cool...I'd say you have a keeper there. The memory meaning more to you than the few bucks it would bring.

My only autographed item is a Portland, Maine "Seadogs" hat...autographed by Jacoby Ellsbury. Given to me by a friend in Maine. I'd just mentioned that Jacoby was a good player after my friend emailed that he couldn't get Red Sox tickets. Told him maybe he should attend a Sea Dogs game and check out the former Oregon State center fielder...a couple of weeks later I got the hat in the mail.

Jacoby became a free agent after the Red Sox won the series last season. Now with the Yankees, he's the highest paid center fielder in baseball. I'm happy for an Oregon guy doing well, but I doubt I could ever be a Yankees fan...;)

Thanks for sharing the shirt picture. Seeing a shirt that is signed by some great players that are no longer with us like Steve Mizerak, Danny Medina, Ginky and Tony Ellin is pretty cool and is priceless to you. I would not suggest ever selling it.

Most of my stuff, the pool items anyway, are still packed from the move to the new house. I have Mosconi, through the mail and in person, Jimmy Moore, obtained for me in person by a friend, Babe Cranfied, Irving Crane and Steve Mizerak on the same paper at an exhibition they did together, Earl, Efren, Billy Incardona, Grady, John Brumbeck on a DVD I won in a contest on AZ, Freddy the Beard on his books, George Fels on a first printing of Mastering Pool, Bob Bryrne on McGoorty, a bunch of players on a card set, Jim Rempe on the first issue of Billiards Digest, and many more. No balls or cues, only flat items. Iv'e also collected autographs other than pool players over the years and may start up again. Notables in my collection are A Charlie Brown Christmas signed by Charles Schulz and a drawing of Harvey the invisible rabbit by Jimmy Stewart.

In a land far, far away, I've got an autographed picture and tickets from Hugh Campbell when he coached the LA Express USFL team. Dan Marino should've stuck with them, he could've gone far. :D

I've also got an 8-ball autographed by Allison Fisher and I had sent a payment in for an autographed Jeanette Lee picture or ball that I'll probably never get.

Not sure if I have anything else. Oh, wait.. again, somewhere in a box, I think I've got an autographed Queen Kong picture. :thumbup:

I have an Earl 9 Ball and a Cliff Thorburn 9 ball.

Lots of Earls but I can almost guarantee that there aren't very many, if any Cliff 9 Balls.

Some scam artist cue maker, if you could call him that ran a hospital donation scam some time ago and I gave one to him.

Peed me off cause I could have donated the spare to someone else that could have actually used it.

Quote from Gregg Sullivan on his recent interview with AZ billiards

"The main thing for me with Derby City is I want everyone to leave with a story. How they rubbed shoulders with the champs, how they had so much fun, whatever. Everyone leaves with a tale. Even if it is “I made one ball against Efren” that’s a good story for someone."

I have lots of stories
