RIP TTM Legend Elmore Leonard! The Man Who Brought Us Jackie Brown, Justified, Get Shorty, and 3:10 to Yuma! You Will Be Missed!

What’s up autograph fanatics! Ace here with some sad news here on this TTM Tuesday.

I am sad to write this, and if you have seen his work you will be sad to read this. Elmore Leonard has died three weeks after his stroke. He was the literary genius that rose to fame with his western style films. Complications from the stroke robbed a man who was wonderful to the autograph community. Over the last ten years, Elmore Leonard signed hundreds of requests and even used his own money to pay for extra postage to send a signed bonus book or magazine.

His books and short stories resulted into a TV show called Justified and films such as Jackie Brown, Out of Sight, Hombre, Get Shorty, 3:10 to Yuma, and Mr. Majestyk.

I recall sending to him back in 2010. He wrote me a note, signed everything I had, and even signed clipped articles and magazine pages that he took the time to send to me. He did that to every fan that took the time to contact him. Not to mention, he would even send his newest signed book out to fans before it was even released.

Thanks for being so cool to us Mr. Leonard. You will be missed.

Now, remember, there is always a graphing opportunity out there… You just have to find it.

Until Next time,

Ace, the Autograph Addict
