Steven Tyler is probably one of the most Iconic rock frontmen of all time. The Lead singer of Aerosmith is one of Rock’s Giants and he is truly unparalleled in comparison to anyone else. When I saw his label had a signed CD as a Christmas “Special” I jumped on it, and was thrilled I got my order in, because it came out beautiful. I want this to set the tone for 2017, focusing on Quality pickups
Freddie Freeman is probably the best First Baseman in Major League Baseball and he plays for my Braves, Although I recently completed an 11×14 with Freeman and Dansby Swanson, that got a bit smeared, I used the fact it got smeared to pick up this Freeman certified by Tristar for my collection.
Spartacus: War of the Damned was a damned good TV show. I think it pushed the limits for Violence, Nudity and Sex while telling a gritty gory story, and paved the way for Game of Thrones. This piece is signed by Liam McIntyre (Spartacus) Manu Bennett (Crixus, also known for his work on Arrow and The Hobbit), Ellen Hollman (Saxa) Jenna Lind (Kore), Stephen Dunlevy (The Egyptian), Anna Hutchison (Laeta) and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia, Also known for her work on Arrow). This is a great piece, and one i’m super proud to add to my collection.
Sage Francis is one of my favorite Rap Artists. I’ve got the guy before, but when I saw he had a holiday sale, I jumped on the chance to add his newest album, with it’s beautiful artwork to my collection signed by Sage.
Elodie Yung is a great actress who played Jinx in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and also as Elektra in Netflix’s Daredevil. As an actress who played in G.I. Joe, she was a huge want for me, so I’m glad I was finally able to track her down for the collection.
Alai Shawcat made waves as Maeby Fünke in Arrested Development, playing an awkward, but hilarious character. She’s went in to have minor roles in several films, including some pretty cool ones like The Green Room. She even was in an episode of Veronica Mars.
Karen Fukuhara came out of nowhere to land the role of Katana on Suicide Squad. While the movie was a bit of a trainwreck. I’ve always had a softspot for Katana as a character since Batman and the Outsiders, and thought Fukuhara did a great job portraying her. She’s a welcome addition to the collection.
