Phantasm Autograph Fail

This is arguably the dumbest thing I've seen all day. It might even earn the prestigious "dumbest thing I've seen all week" title. Some genius on eBay (username: hollywoodtreasurechest) likes to hang out at the very groovy Dark Delicacies in Burbank, California and grab autographs from the many celebrities that do signings there. He then turns around and sells them on eBay at an inflated price. Reggie Bannister was at DD recently promoting the new Anchor Bay DVD releases of the first and third Phantasm movies. So 'hollywoodtreasurechest' brings a few items for Reggie to sign, one of which is a copy of Wishmaster 3: Beyond The Gates Of Hell.

One problem: Reggie wasn't in this film. He wasn't even in the previous movie. He had a small (albeit great) cameo in the original Wishmaster, but not the third one. He showed up as a pharmacist in part one and less than sixty seconds later; he was dead. That officially ended Reg's involvement with the franchise. He didn't even do anything else behind the scenes. So why was this chap asking Reggie to sign the *second* sequel and then asking for a ridiculous sum on an auction site? Where's a quadruple-barreled shotgun and a middle-aged ice cream vendor to pull the trigger when you need one? As peculiar of an item as this autographed DVD was, it could go without saying that no one bought it for the $50 asking price that the eBay seller had listed it for. Go figure!
