In-Person Autograph Specialist

The ultimate music fan and record collector first, after his initial autograph seeking began in 1979, John started “graphing” full-time in the Spring of 1984, revealing “the passion grew from the difficulty in getting the albums signed by all the members of the group,” there was always one more name to add, one more signature to obtain.

As a genuine in-person autograph pioneer, John has collected on the streets of New York City, Los Angeles, and London for over 40 years. From a small town in Connecticut, to his mainstay electric streets of the Big Apple, over four decades John amassed thousands of autographs developing into an unprecedented assemblage.
