The autograph and photo op setup at Star Wars Celebration Chicago is shaping up to be the largest one ever at Celebration! But how did autographing as a business get started, and how did it become what it is today? In the first of a two-part interview, Star Wars Autograph News owner and founder Frank Rich joins me to set the scene. We’ll talk about his history as a Star Wars fan and how it led him to collecting signatures and from there to creating Star Wars Autograph News. We’ll also talk about how the autographing industry has changed over the last decade, and I’ll give a preview of what’s on tap for tomorrow’s show… Punch it!
