George HW Bush Museum autograph sales

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum offers signed items for sale including baseballs, FDCs and books. Almost all the prices are prohibitively high (the signed baseball is $325).

A copy of A World Transformed signed by Bush and Brent Scowcroft can be had for $60 -- not a bad deal.

Gregory Peck autographs through the mail

A year-and-a-half ago I sent a request and photo to Gregory Peck. Today it returned unsigned along with a "too   busy" form letter. In the letter Mr. Peck notes, "I've never believed in having a secretary or assistant "forge" my autograph."

I would have loved a success in this case, however, I would always rather get back an unsigned item rather than a stamp, Autopen or secretarial.
