A few years ago for Christmas, my parents got me a picture of Billy Gilman [the cute little country boy who sang that powerful song called One Voice] . It was even signed by him! But little did any of us know, even my parents, it was a print-off of his autograph. My mom had even ordered it from Billy's record company and they told her that it was real. But I found out it was fake when I was looking at the photo in the light and I could tell it was simply printed on. Plus it looked excactly like a similar signature I had seen on Billy's website. No two signatures can look exactly alike, right down to the point where ink ran out and part of the letter wasn't there. So I was really bummed. I still have the picture, but it would mean more to me if it was really Billy Gilman's real signature.

Polls:

1) Do you own any celebrity autographs that you know for a fact are really signed by that person?
2) If so, where did you get it?
3) What other celeb signatures would you ever like to own?
4) How would you feel if you got a picture, like me, and found out it wasn't the real signature?

Most of my answers are above, but for number three, I wish I could have each one of the Hanson guys' signatures, all of Aerosmith's, Metallica's, Toby Keith's, Alan Jackson's, and many more. Oh, can't forget Nick and Aaron Carter. =) So how about you guys?

1: Yes; I have autograph cards of Billy Boyd, Bernard Hill, Craig Parker and Karl Urban. ^__^; I also had an Orlando Bloom card, but... I sold it for $400 dollars. xD
2: I got the Bernard Hill one and the Orlando one packs of LotR cards I bought, the rest were gotten from eBay. (All of them are the auto cards you can get from the packs of Topps cards, which cannot be forged because the cards they are printed on can't be copied.)
3: Viggo Mortensen and Sean Bean, which I've wanted forever! Er, well, a really long time. I might be able to get 'em both tomorrow. ^^' *shrug* And also the James Marsters auto card from the "Buffy" and "Angel" series.
4: Well, the only autographs I'd ever buy from a site would truly be just the auto cards, as like I said before; they cannot be forged. But if I ever did get a picture and it wasn't the real signature, I say I wouldn't be quite happy.

1) yep, 3. Pepe Sanchez, Kevin Ollie, World B. Free, Clyde Frazier, and Daryl Dawkins.

2) The first 3 at one camp, the last 2 at another.

3) Kobe Bryant definetly. Maybe Jason Kidd on my Kidd rookie card :p

4) I'd track down whoever gave it to me and shoot them :p

1) Yes I do - I have quite a few lol

2) Sugar Jones (Canadian Popstars) - I waited in line for 6 hours at an autograph signing thing for them. I got all 5 of them to sign the CD. :)
Local Actresses/Actors (I got these this Saturday when I went to see the last showing of NRG Aurum:
Donya Metzger - "Thanks for coming 3 times! Donya M" We talked for like 10 minutes too.. she was so nice! :)
Christi Arellano - She actually approatched me which was cool. We talked for a bit and then a bit later when I caught her before I left, I asked her for her autograph and she was extremely happy to give it :) "Thankx so much for coming 3x!! C Arellano
Ian Rozylo - THIS GUY IS SO HOT AND OMFG I was so nervous and he signed it and he was so sexy while signing it XD "Thanks alot Ian R"
Kimmy Choi - She was so short ~_~ lol I loved her voice in the play.. my favorite one of them all. She was so nice and she invited me and my best friend to go to the after party! "Phil, You Rock! <3 Kimmy"
Vincent Tong - He was a jerk. lol.. "Phil, you're a nut for wanting this - VT"
Erin ronningen - I first talked to her and told her that i loved the show and she was so happy (It was her first real theatrical preformance). I then asked her for her autograph at the after party. I was like "May i have your autograph?" and she's like "OF COURSE!" and she was so happy XD "Phil, Thanks for the love and support - E Ronningen"

Haha it was an awesome night for getting autographs. They may not be big worldwide but here they're really well known and highly respected. :)

3) Geri Halliwell! I WANT HER AUTOGRAPH SO MUCH! *Cries*

4) I'd be pissed off - especially if I paid a lot of money for it. ^^;

Hmmm...

1) Do you own any celebrity autographs that you know for a fact are really signed by that person?

Me: I don't personally have any autographs, but my Dad does! (UPDATE: I asked my Mom if she had any autographs, and she did once...)

2) If so, where did you get it?

Me: My Dad got it from my Grandpa (my Dad's dad). It's a picture of the moon landing signed by James Irwin. My Grandpa met James Irwin at a health farm long ago, and he signed pictures for my Grandpa's kids (including my Dad). (UPDATE: My Mom used to have an autographed photo of Bobby Sherman, but she doesn't know what became of it...)

3) What other celeb signatures would you ever like to own?

Me: Hmmm... I'm not an active seeker of autographs, so I'm like this: :confused: . (I wouldn't mind owning an autographed anything of somebody I liked, though! :yes: In fact, as of late, I like to look up "Lord Of The Rings" stuff on Ebay, and it'd be cool to own an autographed something by one of the actors/actresses from those movies! :D)

4) How would you feel if you got a picture, like me, and found out it wasn't the real signature?

Me: :no: <- Like that, probably.

1) I can only think of three right now, and they are autographs of Neleh, Gabe, and Paschal from Survivor 4. I know they are real because I saw them write them. :D

2) They held an autograph session at the local mall.

3) Would I like to own? I want Satoshi Tajiri's, Naoko Takeuchi's, Pierce Brosnan's, Steven Spielberg's, and Susan Roman's.

4) I probably wouldn't mind, since I usually don't investigate into them anyway.

Hmmm, well I don't know if this would count as a celebrity, but I have a book signed by Ann M. Martin (who wrote the Baby-Sitter's Club books). She was at the local bookstore for a signing and it was definately her. I gave her flowers and a letter and we were actually talking a little. Then she signed my book :D

I'd love to have Vanessa Carlton's signature. I'm such a big fan of her. And Naoko Takeuchi :D

If the signature was from a form letter or something, I'd be fine, but if I actually paid for it, I'd scream and demand my money back.
