Looking to buy in Maryland

I am an ebay seller and am looking to buy some items to sell or consign. My interests include sports cards, sports or celebrity autographs, 1980s/90s wrestling figures and event merchandise but are not limited to those specific items. I am located in Maryland but would also consider dealing out of s...

Re: Meeting Mr. Baseball

What a great report! I know Bob can be tough which really conflicts with his celebrity persona but it's really good to know he was as cool as he was at this show. Your personal experience was amazing but it's also a memory that you created for him and the Brewers owner that led to his conversation. ...

Re: WWF thumb wrestlers 80's

I love the LJN line even but it seems like Hasbro gets so much more love from fans. I had all but maybe 5 of the LJNs loose and maybe 5 carded figures. I remember having one thumb wrestler set which I think was Hillbilly and John Studd. There were actually a few more unreleased figures like Andre an...

Re: Celebrity Experience of the Year

I was in LA, riding around with a guy I knew, and we had to meet up with an acquaintance of his. I remembered the street name from the address I sent one of Kirk's books to years ago, and I did a quick search to figure out what that address was. We just wanted to see his house in person, with no in...

Re: Celebrity Experience of the Year

Kirk Douglas takes the win IMO. Someone meeting him now is huge to me. It has nothing to do with him being difficult or eccentric like some big celebrity meets but the opportunities to meet him now are most likely very limited. It's not due to any lack of friendliness and feelings of superiority but...

Re: Star Trek: Picard trailer

I have never watched any TV or movie of Star Trek so maybe I have no say in this but I'm so glad this is with Patrick Stewart rather than William Shatner. I don't find William Shatner entertaining at all and his holier than though attitude is just too much. If I watch anything with him it's because ...

I hope you get to meet Tugboat. He is one of the most genuinely nice guys in wrestling. He's also very appreciate of his fan base.

Re: Street op of year nominations

To me, that Kirk Douglas photo was epic. He's 103 years old and one of, if not the only, last of the classic era actors. Another thing, from my autograph collecting experience is that he is one of the few who authentically signs his own autograph via mail. Having collected through mail autographs fo...

Re: Grease Is The Word!

This is an epic report and I'm not even a Grease fan but I can appreciate how cool this is. I liked Michael Tucci in Diagnosis Murder and it's been so long since he was on that show so I'm glad to see he is doing well. It's just such a good experience all around for you and good for the readers to e...

Re: Eric Simms on Sean Oliver's Kayfabe Podcast

I don't classify myself as someone who knows Eric personally but I've been in various behind the scenes situations with him including in his car and in restaurants and I must say in the time I was with him he was very professional so I feel the need to speak on this thread. I know he comes off as an...

Re: ECW Day 2020 - 1/11, Wrestling Universe

This may be an unpopular opinion but I honestly believe he avoids signings like these 1) because he is too big a name maybe to deal with small time promoters/trust or money issues that may arise and 2) possible fear of being around ECW wrestlers without lots of witnesses and security. He burned a lo...

Re: RENE AUBERJONOIS DS9 PASSED AWAY AT 79

I'm glad to read that report. I probably know him from his less famous roles but I always enjoyed him. You could tell he put his all into his performances. I saw all the Police Academy movies but his character in 5 was probably the most memorable to me. He also did a few Matlock episodes that were e...

Re: NWO & BATISTA HALL OF FAME CLASS 2020

X-Pac was in the original n w o from like September 1996 to early 1998, IIRC. He was also a more popular member of DX for the first year or so that he was there. His time as 123 Kid was also impressive. WWE probably only had a photo of the 4 together from their time as the 2002 version. In 1996 they...

Re: XFL - anybody going to watch??

I watched a few games from the original version and remember it being just awful. Another example of WWE not having success outside of wrestling but not learning from the mistake. Vince is almost 80 years old and needs to realize he isn't this "entertainment" promoter he believes himself to be. He i...

Re: ECW Day 2020 - 1/11, Wrestling Universe

I am big Kamala fan but I am going to have to take Dawn's side in this one. What I remember is that Dawn showed proof that she filled out and mailed a check or money order to Kamala but it was returned as Kamala deemed it not enough money. It is truly sad what has happened to the man but he's always...
