I sent this custom autograph card to VShout (whom I've gone through many times with great results, check them out) back in April of 2021 in anticipation of an autograph from a private signing that had scheduled with Nita Strauss.
If you're unfamiliar with Nita, she's a guitar playing force of nature. She's got a lot on her rock 'n' resume, but is probably best known for touring with Alice Cooper and absolutely killin' it.
I had the idea to make an autograph card that looked like an old cassette tape sleeve. I felt like that would make for a really rad autograph card concept. I even went as far to make a barcode, that when scanned, would read "Phantom Cardboard" - although, thinking about it now the autograph would have most likely obscured that.
This was taking forever, but I was REALLY excited about getting this card auto'd, so I was willing to be patient and wait. Well, after a year of waiting I got the unfortunate news that Nita -probably due to a scheduling/touring conflict- had to cancel the private signing. Needless to say I was pretty bummed out. But, I got the card back and will hold onto it in hopes of another shot.
