Re: Burt Reynolds Dead at 82

I met him at SuperMega Fest in Boston a couple of years ago. I got a pro op with him sitting in front of a "Bandit" style Trans Am. Right when it's time for my photo, the photographer has an issue with the camera, and his to fix something, so I get a couple of minutes to talk to Burt. He makes small...

Re: Need help IDing

Forget "new" media - he couldn't ID even Tim Meadows (who was famous before I was in high school) or Tyne Daly, (who was famous before I was in grade school). I almost never go on the street except for very specific (usually 80's horror) wants, and even I could ID those two if I saw them!

Re: Need help IDing

I have never in my life taken a photo with a celeb that I didn't know. Literally not a single time, let alone dozens and dozens over the last few months. It's bizarre for somebody to put that much time and effort into getting people they literally have zero interest in. I can't even say that as a cr...

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

To me, the bigger "rip off" is that with Rob's reputation, I would have zero confidence that the sign is even the legitimate sign from the Arena. So I wouldn't buy it off of HIM at any price.

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

Even putting aside the pedo stuff, after the Piper forging came to light, you'd have to be an absolute fool to buy any graphs or supposedly authentic memorabilia from him. At this point, anybody who buys stuff from him deserves to get fleeced.

The Midnights are great adds, but I wish somebody would book Condrey to come with them.

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Personally I think Chiller already tested what AJLe says. Their guest list isn't exactly the greatest, yet they seem to draw people no matter. Yeah, and NYCC sells out before announcing a single paid autograph guest, and would still sell out if they announced ahead of time that there would be zero ...

SummerSlam going to Toronto in 2019

Even though it was local, as a fan I'm not really big on major PPVs always being in the same location like they were with Barclays, and LA before that. I'd rather see it in different cities from year to year, and Toronto is still driveable if I really wanted to go. Odd they went with the smaller are...

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

That was my whole point - if there was no pedo incident and RF still owned it, then "business as usual" likely does NOT involve Sinclair Broadcasting, it just involves Rob, Gabe, and whoever else was involved in the front office at the time. Without Silkin and Sinclair's money, ROH was just a region...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

I understand and agree with what you're saying about the different types of combos Vs different gas, but my analogy is meant to address the "need" aspect of it. Everyone needs gas so if gas prices go up people will still buy gas. Some people's desires for combos is so great that they also "need" co...

Re: Debating Kane, RF, Pedo's, and more

Well, if RF still owned it (and never tried to pick up a 14 year old) that would mean that Cary Silkin and later Sinclair Broadcasting did NOT ever own it, which would mean that they would likely not have the TV distribution deal they have now, nor the financial backing, which also likely means no N...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Terrible analogy - people need gasoline, but there's not a million different types of gasoline that people either love, hate, or are indifferent to, they just want gas from any convenient source. In this hobby, each and every guest has their own individual market, and some of the fans might flock to...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

AJLe, I agree. Arnold I wasn’t surprised walkthrough his pricing as I assumed it would have been close or more than Stallone from a few years ago. Moranis I’ll be curious as I was expecting him to be in the $100-$150 range. I had a similar gonwith horror guests with over pricing. We had a horror co...

Re: Will we see a crash in pricing?

Well, there's not just one "market" for prices - for example, when I first got Robert Englund 10 years ago, he was $25/graph and doing free photos at the table. Now, I hear he's $100/graph and pro photo only, yet his lines aren't any shorter. So that "market" doesn't so any signs of going down, let ...

Re: Monster Mania 41- September 28-30, 2018- Hunt Valley, MD

RF got INSANELY lucky that the group that popped him did the sting without working with the police. A year later, the same group created To Catch A Predator. At this point, the RF stuff is ancient history that won’t be held against him to the masses. It is an event that happened 15 years ago where ...
