Hi all,

This is my first time attempting to showcase any of my TMNT collection. Rather than dig into boxes of old used toys (as fun as that is :tgrin:) I am going to start with some of my favorite autographs and such. I'll periodically update as I find things (slowly moving items into our new home).

Enjoy and thanks for looking!

First up - I posted this in the comics thread, but it was suggested I post here too, which I didn't know existed. You can see the thread there but I'll repost the pics here too. What you'll see are two original pages from TMNT Adventures as well as two bonus Chris Allan pieces. Also, a drawing Jim Lawson did for me at a comic convention in Philly back in 2004 or 2005 of Future Raph from TMNT.

At the bottom you'll see three additional attachments. First is a photo of the 3 TMNT movies + the first season of TMNT signed by Peter Laird. Next is a deluxe reprint of TMNT #1 signed by Laird. Lastly is an old TMNT activity book that I had signed by Lawson and Berger (spelled Burger in the intro page). Its all colored in and cut out inside, but I thought it would be fun to show them.

Enjoy!

Thanks! Two of my most favorite autographs aren't here at the house yet - they're still packed away, but I REALLY want to find them. I hope to post pics of them asap :D

Thanks! Those were fun. Not that Peter had a huge hand in the 2nd and especially 3rd movie, I'd suspect, but I thought it would be fun to have :-)

Really nice stuff, and I love how Dan Berger made that head sketch that says "Burger?" Nice touch.

haha yeah they both thought it was goofy I had that book, let alone his name spelled wrong inside.

In my first post I mentioned some special items that I didn't have here with me at the moment. I found photos I took of them from back in 2004. So here we go!

First up: TMNT NES game signed by Peter Laird and Michael Dooney :) At the time I wasn't very familiar with Dooney by name, but Peter said "You should have him sign it. He did the art for the game." I'm glad I did!

And perhaps my most prized item for nostalgia purposes, my first ever TMNT toy signed by P.L. My grandmother bought me Raph and Leo at a KB Toy Store when I was little. I remember them being my first TMNT toys. I thought it would be neat for P.L. to sign it. Its even more special now as my grandmother is no longer with us. Very special item :D Nevermind all the wrong accessories haha!

That's it for now. More to come. Thanks for looking!

I guess the photo of all those comics does not show the signatures very well. Ah well! I'll crop and zoom if anyone wants to see any in particular.

It's been about three years since posting this thread, and while I don't have anything new to share, I did take some new photos of some me of the items seen in my older posts.

My two pieces of Chris Allan art are framed near a small shelf on which I agave the NES game and the Leo figure. Also, yesterday I framed TMNTA #50 (signed by Chris Allan on the cover, Peter Laird on the inside pinup). Also is a photo of another signed comic that may be of interest to comic fans: Death of Superman signed by Mike Carlin (editor?) and Brett Breeding (inks?) this was my first autographed comic back when I was about 10 or so. Enjoy!
