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!

    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.

    Autograph Collecting at Monaco Grand Prix 2011

    Every year the F1 Grand Prix of Monaco is the amazing Highlight of the season. It is like a paradise, where you can collect autographs. There are many opportunities to meet the stars. E.g. at the charity soccer match, around the many yachts in the harbor, at the Hugo Boss-Party or at a prêt-a-porter. There is always something an amazement!

  • Autograph hunting at 50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen + Belgium F1 Grand Prix 2011

    50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen with Michael and Sebastian Vettel

    Both, Michael and Sebastian, were close to the fans. So it was possible to collect a lot of great autographs. Michael wrote autographs in many different situations. Sebastian wrote even more always trying to fulfill every autographs wish. At the end of the day I had more Michael autographs as usual.

    Directly after leaving Kerpen, I travelled to Spa in Belgium. F1.
