    Whew, this helps. Thanks for the encouragement...and definitely for the insight!

    There are many I'd be afraid to send previously signed pics too - James Earl Jones isn't one of them. The one failure I ever got from him he sent back the pics unsigned. Every other time (2 or 3 over the years) he's graciously signed all I sent.

    Awesome, I appreciate the comments from both of you guys. I'll definitely sleep a little easier now. Thanks again!!!!

    Just so you know, the upper end of the return spectrum for JEJ isn't 2 months, but more in the neighborhood of 3 and a half months.

    That's good to know to, I was just going off the comment as part of the intro that, "Mr. Jones signs regularly, so you could expect results in about month, rarely more than two months." Thanks Joel, this one even makes me feel better about it. I appreciate all of your thoughts guys, I'm not sweating this one any longer. Thanks again!

    Doh! I was extremely thrilled today when I saw a postmark from NY...alas, it wasn't my JEJ. Turned out to be a Jerry Stiller pic that I sent c/o King of Queens. Still a great success, but I eagerly await my JEJ with each trip to the mailbox. Best of luck to everybody with outstanding requests. Any recent news or updates?

    Hello star wars fan, I too have been debating whether to send my already signed pic to Mr. Jones. I got Dave Prowse and Jerremy Bulloch at a convention here in the U.K. and then nervousley sent it to Jason Wingreen who signed it no problem. My main worry was it getting damaged or lost, has anyone ever sent anything by registered/recorded delivery?
    My next problem would then be getting Billy Dee Williams signature?!
    I hope you receive your pic soon, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about!

    I've only had one non-success ever from JE Jones and he returned the photos in that case. Every other time I've always received everything back signed.

    I'd think you're safe...plus worst case scenario everyone that's signed your pic so far are good signers so you can always get a replacement.

    To my knowledge, from several sites I regularly check, no one has got their items back signed in over 3 months from Jones.
    Those who just sent SASEs have gotten back non personalized signed headshots, which were probably from a stack he keeps that he pre-signs.

    :eek: AAAAGGGHHH!!
    I've just returned from the post office having sent my already signed pic to Mr. Jones to find Sevb30's post!
    Oh well, we'll just have to see what happens? And as Sarasotarockstr says, the 3 signatures are relatively easy to obtain.
    Or maybe if he's had enough of signing I'll just get a return to sender?
    Everything will be crossed for the next few months :D

    It's possible he's working on a project and hasn't had time to sign. I just sent a action figure request off to him today, on behalf of Darth Boru.

    I'm still not sweating it. If he goes another three months without signing items, then I will start worrying.

    I agree. I'm not totally sweating things yet because he has been so historically great to his fans. Somebody mentioned earlier that he was doing a jazz fest or something like that and is probably just really busy. My thought is that the wait is going to make it that much sweeter when it finally comes back! Good luck everybody.

    I'm sure you're right and as you say, when it does turn up it will that bit sweeter.

    Tick tock tick tock. Another month without my triple-signed pic returned. Any updates on JEJ?

    To my knowledge from looking at multiple autograph sites, no one had gotten anything back signed from Jones since late December 06. Hope he is well now and has not given up on his fanmail. It is kinda rare for him to go this long.
