Hooked On Autographs: My Favorite Tales In Collecting Autographed Golf Balls From Golfers, Entertainers, Sports Figures And U.S. Presidents. The Stories Will Delight Golfers And Even Non-golfers.

Hooked on Autographs by Joe Galiardi is an unforgettable collection of anecdotes and yarns that highlight what it took for the author to obtain over two hundred and fifty celebrity signed golf balls over the past twenty years. In this unusual memoir, the author describes many of his favorite stories in garnering and gathering autographed golf balls from golfers, entertainers, sports figures, and U.S. presidents. With a wonderfully engaging and colloquial driven prose, golf lovers will revel and non-golfers will delight. Beginning with how he became an autograph seeker, in sixteen spirited chapters Galiardi shares the best parts. With titles such as "Jack Lemmon - A 'Cut' Above," "Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitation," "Presidents of the United States," and "In a Class by Themselves," he shares an infectious passion for the hobby of collecting autographs. Be certain, Galiardi's thrill of the hunt is more fun than the hole in one.

Nothing new here. Pretty much just backgrounds of athletes/celebrities that this person has gotten the autograph from. When it comes to the parts where he writes about getting the autograph, it is only a sentence or two...and it goes something like this..."I gave the person my golf ball and he signed it with a sharpie."

Very interesting

Joe does a great job of showing "another side" of famous people in his stories. No one else could tell these tales but an autograph hound who doesn't give up and cheerfully chases people until they give in!!!
