Hello there TTM Nation! TTM Troy here with the yearly article on the best signers of 2017! There isn’t any scientific method involved in choosing these worthy celebrities for the list – they are simply my choices based on the number of returns I saw during the year, attitude towards fans, etc. As always, your mileage may vary – but without further introduction, here are my picks for the top signers of the year – drumroll please!
Topping the list this year is a surprise addition. For years he was considered the greatest quarterback of all time while only signing here and there. Since retiring, however, he seems to be signing anything and everything. I’d really like to believe they are legit – and I would say yes, although I haven’t seen anybody get them authenticated yet. Mr. Peyton Manning!

I just featured this address a few short weeks ago, but he has been signing up a storm in 2017! From Everybody Loves Raymond to The King of Queens and a stop to the Mall – Mr. Kevin James!
c/o Jeff Sussman Management
603 West 115th Street, Suite 282
New York, NY 10025
I have a soft spot in my heart for Star Trek actors that sign – with two appearing on the list this year! The first one has been signing fast and furious. From NCIS: New Orleans, Star Trek: Enterprise, Quantum Leap, and more – Scott Bakula!
C/O Jay D. Schwartz and Associates
6767 Forest Lawn Dr, Suite 211

This next actor is no stranger to the Best Signers list – this is his 2nd year in a row. I could say you remember him from a guest appearance on Gidget, but… probably not. Instead you know him as Chekov from the original Star Trek – Mr. Walter Koenig!
PO Box 4395

This actress can be seen on the recent reboot of One Day at a Time, but you may remember her also from Singin’ in the Rain and West Side Story – Rita Moreno!
2625 Alcatraz Avenue # 326
Berkeley, CA 94705-2702
This actress is in two of my favorite movies, Sweet Talker and Ghost in the Machine. She also appeared in some other little films called Raiders of the Lost Ark, Starman, The Sandlot, Scrooged and Animal House – Karen Allen!

There is so much we can say about this next actor, but let’s just say – Up. Mr. Ed Asner!
11802 Otsego St
North Hollywood, CA 91607-3223
From A Room With A View, Henry V, and of course as M in GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royals, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and even uncredited in Spectre… Dame Judi Dench

I saw a lot of successes this year for the The Polish Prince of Poch. He crooned a cover version of Tony Bennet’s hit all the way to #1 on the charts – Mr. Blue Velvet, Bobby Vinton!
1118 Ledgestone Ln
Reeds Spring, MO 65737-9275
This talented artist helped make Lasagna a popular meal for humans and felines alike. Mr. Jim Davis (creator of Garfield!)
℅ Paws, Inc.
5440 E County Road 450 N
Albany, IN 47320-9728
This athlete pummeled Ronda Rousey in only 48 seconds a year ago, and since then continues to defend her UFC title. While signing autographs of course – Amanda Nunes!
c/o American Top Team
5750 FL-7 – Coconut Creek
Sadly, one of the best signers on our list last year passed away recently. Bobby Doerr would sign as many autographs as he was asked. He passed away on November 13.
Picking up the baton for Bobby is Pat Neshek. Pat has always been a great signer and a “fan’s fan.” This year in addition to signing up a storm during the season, he also called out Zack Greinke for backing out of signing a few cards which sent the collecting world into a flurry of activity. Neshek is definitely a collector’s favorite and a great ambassador for the hobby.
