Breaking News…John Reznikoff on TV! 
John Reznikoff Autograph Expert used by Inside Edition

Our own John Reznikoff was the on-air expert on the nationally syndicated and hugely popular Inside Edition television show November 20, 2014.

Back to our holiday specials ...

The most difficult people to buy gifts for are the ones who seem to have it all. If they need something, they’ll pick it up themselves even if it is three days before the holiday. Our best advice is to skip the sweater or the purse and give them something to enjoy they might otherwise not think to get for themselves.  For sports enthusiasts, we have signed golf, baseball and boxing items, for book lovers we have signed literary treasures from authors and gifted illustrators, and for entertainment buffs, we have stage and film items. Purchase any items listed below by December 1, 2014, and receive a 10% discount.  We will gladly hold any paid purchases for you and ship them to you at your convenience.
