Fred McGriff

I met him at a celebrity golf tournament at Lansbrook Golf Course in Palm Harbor, Florida.
A couple of years later he returned for another tournament. I decided to see if he would personalize an autograph for me. As a Mets fan it kind of bothered me that he wrote "Go Braves."

Maharaji

On May 27, 2000, I went to Wild 98.7's Old School Jam, which featured Tone Loc, Slick Rick, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Run-DMC.
This was my second time seeing Sir Mix-A-Lot perform. The first was my very first concert in 1988 at a club called Moonbeams in Clearwater, Florida.
I didn't collect autographs back then, though I did get to meet Sir Mix-A-Lot that night. I just remember him putting his arm around my shoulder and me staring down at his massive 4-finger ring.
I was hoping to meet him again this night but alas it didn't happen. I did happen to recognize his fellow group member walking outside the arena after the show.

Maharaji signed the front cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot's Swass CD.

On April 1, 2006, Main Street Lounge in Louisville, Kentucky hosted a free turntablist show featuring D.J. QBert, Rob Swift, Grand Wizard Theodore, and D.J. Steve Dee.

Grand Wizard Theodore signed the back cover of the Scratch DVD.
