I’ve been watching successes roll in for this professional basketball player over the past few months. While I am still somewhat skeptical (he is almost TOO good at signing), I am going to take a chance and include him here on this list He played for the Dallas Mavericks since 1998, including the 2011 championship team. He is also a 13x All Star. His accolades can go on and on but here you go – Dirk Nowitzki!

I had to do a double-take when searching MTF to find out when we last featured this next actor – and we haven’t! He portrayed Mr. Spalding (and Mr. Harrington) on Saved by the Bell: The New Class, and a Catholic priest in the series Just the Ten of Us. He also appeared as a detective in the short-lived 90s series Sidekicks. But he is best known as Herb Tarlek on both the original and The New WKRP in Cincinnati – Frank Bonner!
℅ Guardian Angel Management

This voice actor only has a few credits, but one of them is very memorable! I’ll just get right to it – the voice of the original Lion-O and Snarf on Thundercats! Mr. Larry Kenney! (He also portrayed Claudus in the 2011-2012 version)
219 Middle Ridge Rd

This actress usually charges for her autograph, including selling signed bottle openers (guess the coconuts are too hard to open). You might also notice she shares the same PO Box location with two addresses further down on this list. She appeared on the TV series Maverick, Cheyenne, 77 Sunset Strip and 86th Precinct before landing the role as Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan’s Island – Ms. Dawn Wells!

This actor has only 30 credits to his name, but two of them are in iconic roles. He has also appeared in the TV series Diagnosis Murder, Dragnet, Murder She Wrote, Hunter and Knight Rider. But the role he played in two films as simple “Non” has endured for decades. From Superman and Superman II – Jack O’Halloran!
℅ Committed Artists Entertainment
10153 1/2 Riverside Drive, Suite 300
Toluca Lake, CA 91602
Just for fun, you might also want to send to this great actor who also shares a mail box location with both Dawn and Jack O’Halloran. He starred in the films The Godfather Part III, Searching for Bobby Fischer, Underworld and Bugsy. But it is his role as David Rossi for almost 300 episodes on Criminal Minds that keeps him busy these days – Joe Mantegna!

Toluca Lake, CA 91602
Finally this week – speaking of Superman – an editorial.
Fan-friendly actress Sarah Douglas took to her Facebook page recently saying two major things. First, she is taking a break from signing through the mail.
Second, she explains why.
She enlists the help of her niece to fulfill her many autograph requests. (We featured her in an article almost a year ago.) Turns out there have been more and more people sending in multiple items to be signed, including “Stephen” who said he had 12 family members who were “enormous fans” and sent 12 identical Superman custom cards for her to sign.
Further investigation by her fans turned out Stephen/Steven has an eBay store where he sells said custom cards for $14-50 each. He currently has over 1,000 such items in his store. (I am not going to link it here.)
Here’s the deal. Whenever you write to a celebrity, keep in mind they are doing it because they love their fans. Don’t take advantage of their generosity. When I send, I usually only send 1 – sometimes 2 photos or cards. Don’t ruin things for everybody else. Be courteous, be polite, include return postage, and don’t be greedy.
While some people TTM and hustle IP for things to sell, the majority of us are just fans. But sending 12 items per person really puts a dark stain on all of us.

Be kind everyone – and may your mailboxes be full and your stamps Forever.

Great pointsTroy but those of us who also collect in person have the same woes. The dealers ruin it for the fans every time.
