    Does anyone have any signed memorabilia from any famous people? I've been hoping I could get some stuff of mine signed and was wondering if anyone here knew anything about it. Could you expect to get a response from Fan mail addresses or contacting their managers?

    The easiest way to get stuff signed is by going to a convention that they are a guest at. Some charge, some don't, but I think that has a much better chance than going through a mailing address in a lot of cases.

    So far from going 2 years tothe comic expo here, I've gotten my legendary edition mastercheif helmet signed by the voice actor for mastercheif, my cybertron leader prime signed by Garry chalk, beast wars 10 th waspinator signed by Scott McNeil (those two made for a great panel), and finally I got Leonard nimoy to sign my universe 2.0 Galvatron. Of those only Spock and mastercheif charged.

    I get stuff signed at Cons, also at sports games. Other places you can get autographs is celebrity appearances, like when an author goes to a book store, a comic artist promotes a comic store, athlete promotes something. Also I got some signed stuff at charity events hosted by sports teams.

    I've heard that Nimoy gets super butthurt about being associated with his short role as Galvatron. TRUE / FALSE?

    I got my Nuparu Inika canister and instructions signed by Greg Farshley (?). He wrote the Bionicle comics and everybody is super butthurt over him.

    Got Fablehaven 3-5 signed by the author ... name escapes me.

    Are these popular elsewhere or is it a bunch of silly Mormon jazz?

    I have an autograph signed by the guy who played Jason. Kane something, I forgot his last name. I also have autographs signed by Daniel Logan and Alex Milne (who drew Starscream for me). I was at an expo where the voice actor of Lion-O was but I never got a chance to meet him unfortunately.

    He didnt seem too upset when he signed mine. He even smiled. Granted he was charging 50$ for his signature, but its suposedly one of the last cons he was attending before his current retirement, so it was worth it.


    He used to get pissed about being associated with spock as well from what i remember, so its just some sort of weird mood swings or something i think

    I have alot of autographs in my sportscard collection. It mostly consists of NY Jets and North Carolina tarheel players.

    As far as people in movies, I have several from Star Wars. I have Jeremy Bulloch, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, Ray Park, and Amy Allen (who played Aayla Secura).

    The only autographs I've gotten are from Star Wars peeps at a Sci-Fi expo four years ago.

    I got Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul but my dad let my younger sister hang on to them and now they're nowhere to be found. >=\ Really pisses me off. I also got Matthew Wood's autograph. <333 Only autograph I have on display in my room.

    Pops used to take me to Hawks games all the time when i was younger.
    Back then it was easy for anyone to go court-side during the shoot around.
    I remember getting basketball cards autographed by Tim Hardaway, David Robinson, Shawn Kemp etc.. This thread prompted me to go through some boxes when I was at my parents house over the weekend. Most of them must be in boxes way back in the attic. I did find this one though:
