I remember his series entitled "Baseball." It was all about the New York Yankees.

I adored his series about the Civil War, and he changed the way such documentaries are presented, but (like others) I question his choice of talking heads.

"Ah, Elton John, circa 1975. Popular choice, but we are currently out of that style. You can get it at Glasses R Us at the Southdale Shopping Center, or we can mail them." "Thank you, I'll pick them up." 20 minutes. Tops. It takes 4 hours to get across town to the shopping center. Those 4 hours won...

I usually get off at 7th street (there are a bunch of exits at mile marker 1, so follow the signs for 7th Street), and it's only a few blocks of surface street driving. Traffic backs up pretty badly in Cincinnati, though, and you might want to bail out a lot earlier. I-275 is too far as a bypass (an...

incidentally, I don't think this was an intentional fake (or it would have some fabricated provenance to go with it, and a better autograph). This is what happens when imaginations run wild after finding an unknown item at an estate sale.

The auction ends tonight. We'll see how broadly Barnum smiles.

I'm guessing an unadorned copy of this book isn't worth $399, and all the value is found in the fake autograph.

I used to sell rare Beatles records at fan conventions back in the 1980s/90s. People would ask dealers how much a set of 4 Beatles autographs were worth. The answer was generally along the lines of "$2000 for the real ones, and $1000 for a set of fakes." Invariably, the customer would pause and then...

Here's the confusion: if you want to attend only Day 3 of the 4-day conference, what day will that be?
