Johnny Manziel Autographed Used Truck: SOLD - For $42K!

Last week we told you about the used Nissan Titan SL pickup truck, which used to belong to Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel and now bears his autograph, that Airport Nissan in Cleveland was selling for $43,720.

Today we're back with an update: The truck is sold!

The lucky new owner reportedly paid $42,500 for the vehicle, which, sans-autograph, would be worth somewhere between $32K and $36K, according to Edmonds, as reported by TMZ.

In case you missed the initial report: Manziel arrived at Airport Nissan last month to trade in his Titan for a black 2015 Nissan GTR with a black interior - his dream car. But before signing off on the deal for his new ride, which is reportedly worth upwards of $100,000 (!!!), the dealership's owner, Bernie Moreno, asked Johnny Football to autograph the dashboard.

Manziel obliged, and Moreno immediately put the truck on display inside the dealership's showroom.

Moreno told TMZ at the time that the truck had received lots of early interest but that a winning offer had not been made.

That all changed this week when the way over market value, but slightly under asking price, deal was finalized.

Moreno had mentioned previously that he was considering listing the truck on eBay so that anyone interested in it nationwide could make a bid for the purchase. But in the end that move was unnecessary because Cleveland rocks, and the sale went to a local couple.

According to Moreno, the car's new owners are a pair of Cleveland natives who are "HUGE Johnny Manziel fans," and he says he they couldn't be more thrilled about their new ride.

Manziel and the Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers today at 1 p.m. at First Energy Stadium.

James Dean’s Intimate Letters to Girlfriend Coming to Auction

Three James Dean handwritten letters to his girlfriend, never before offered for sale, will be sold at Christie's London November 23, 2011.I've posted the article below from Autograph Magazine.  Take a look! 
James Dean handwritten letters are among the rarest and most valuable of Hollywood autographs. Only a few have come to market since Dean’s tragic death in a 1955 car crash, just 24 years old. So when Neil Roberts, Christie’s Head of Pop Culture in London, asked for any information we might have on them to help him with a potential consignment, I had to know more.

But I had to wait….

“At the moment they are reluctant to send me any copies,” Neil said. “However the names and places they provided seem to add up. I’m sure you will understand that at this time I cannot pass on any details.”

That was a year and a half ago. The wait was worth it.

On November 23, Christie’s will auction three James Dean handwritten letters never before offered for sale during their fall Pop…

How to Preserve your Autographed Photo Collectables

I came across this article and thought it was a good one to share!  We all know that preserving your photos is very important!  What is the point of collecting autographs if the photos become faded and start to deteriorate in a few years because you don't handle them properly?  Take a look at these autograph preservation tips!

1. Acid free is the way to go - Whether you choose plastic bags, cardboard folders or frames to display your autographs, you need to make sure that the material you use is acid free. Standard bags, folders and frames are made with materials that release acids over time. These acids can make your photographs and other memorabilia fade and disintegrate. Make sure that the products that you buy to store your autographs is clearly labeled acid-free. If the package doesn't specify that, don't trust it with your photos.

2. Keep humidity low - Humidity causes moisture which can be devastating to paper products like photographs. To keep your autogra…

Is the selfie the new autograph?

By Brent Briggeman

Advertisement Every time a fan pulls out a phone and asks Michael McKenry to pose for a selfie, it makes him laugh.

It reminds the Rockies catcher of "The Goonies," where one of the young characters created a device that holds the camera out in front of him.

"When you think about it, he's the one who invented the selfie stick," McKenry said of the kid in the 1985 film. "And it took all this time for technology to catch up."

Technology has caught up, all right. Roughly 100 million selfies are taken daily according to a study from Google, those making up part of the nearly 900 billion photos snapped in a year according to Agence France-Presse. The Internet is filled with surveys that tell what your selfie habits reveal about your personality, Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the Word of the Year in 2013 and if there was any doubt selfies had hit the mainstream, that was erased when host Ellen…
