ejrail Posted October 13, 2009 Report Share Posted October 13, 2009 My morning DJs posed the question as to what celeb autographs you have and possibly the circumstances in getting it. I thought this would be an interesting way to break the boring work day. First & foremost, I have The Man's 2x. :happy feet: On my SGT sun visor and on the framed art print I bought from Shelby for my car. We got singer Chris Isaac after a concert in Deer Valley(Park City), Ut. My oldest daughter & I got NBA player Karl Malone at our bank years ago when we went in on a Saturday morning to cash a check. Remember checks?! I have Willie Nelson's on one of my personal checks on the line where you sign your name. We went to his concert at Sundance Ski Resort, Ut, Robert Redford's place. The roadie's bus got lost and the semi driver asked us to help unload the gear and help set it up. :happy feet: In return, we were refunded our admission, got to meet and hang with the entire band and all of the Lone Star beer we could drink. :beerchug: The only paper I had on me on stage was my check book so that is what I handed Willie when he asked if I wanted him to sign anything. I also have an unopened Lone Star that he handed me. We sat right next to the Redfords but I didn't think I was right to ask for his autograph since they were so great to us. I would have done it for free just to say I did My screen name is my initials and "rail". Besides my SGT, I am in to HO scale model railroading, which explains my screen name. I have a 21'x28' layout that takes up my entire basement. I have more invested in it than I do in my SGT. I am also a product of the 60's and am a huge Crosby, Stills , Nash and Young fan. I have over 40 albums of theirs together, solo and in various pairings.I always leaned towards Neil Young's music when he went solo. Neil Young is also in to trains and actually bought in to Loinel Trains years ago to help develop and market handicapped children's toys. I saw an autographed striped engineers cap on E-Bay several years ago with the right certificates. It came with the hat, a back stage pass and a photo of him signing the hat! I won it for a lot less than I would have guessed. Lastly, I have Funny Car driver Robert Hight of the John Force Team. Robert is ranked #1 in this week's standings :burnout: Last year I went to the Force pits at the Vegas Nationals to watch them tear the cars down between rounds and take a few pics. I was right up at the guard rail and Hight and Ashley Force came out of one of the trailers and started signing things. Not looking for autographs, I didn't have anything to write on except my black "Got Nitro" cap. Hight's Sharpie was black The underside of the bill was red so he signed it there. I'm going to Vegas again in 2 weeks to the Nationals and I'll be prepared with my own Sharpies, silver & black, this time :happy feet: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
