Re: So how much is a "celebrity" autograph worth to you?

Kevin Smith was the coolest dude when I met him at SDCC. Not only did he autograph my huge stack of comics for and do a photo op all for free, but he was going to personalize each one of them. I stopped him after a couple, not because I didn't appreciate it, but because I didn't want to be responsible for holding up his huge line (he was personalizing everything for everyone, but my stack was significantly bigger than most other people's, so that's why I felt bad about letting him personalize them all).

I also casually mentioned to him that I had forgotten my DVD's at home while he was signing for me, and he asked "Where's home?". When I said "Detroit", he said "Wow, that's far." and he wrote down an address in Red Bank where I could mail the covers to.

This, for me as well.

I have a few vinyl albums and a couple CDs that are signed by the artist - not huge names, and I only have them because they either came that way (didn't cost extra) or it was a gift. It's kinda cool that they're signed, because the album is their actual work, but I wouldn't pay extra for it.

Re: So how much is a "celebrity" autograph worth to you?

I only have one actual item signed by a celebrity. I have a VHS tape of Dragnet signed by Alexandra Paul. I also have one item which will mean nothing to anyone but me. When a group came to Rochester, they received a gift bag with some goodies. One of those goodies was a Jolt Cola. Kim Catrall didn't drink the stuff so she gave me hers. I still have it 25 years later. Not sure why but not that many celebrities gave me anything so I guess I should keep it. Eventually the kids will clean out the house for an estate sale and swear at me for keeping crap like that.
