If you’ve always wanted a signed photograph of Jamie Farr or Loretta Swit but haven’t had the opportunity to get one, now is your chance. The two will be attending the Motor City Comic Con in Michigan next month (October 14-16) where they’ll sign autographs and take photographs with fans. The two will also be doing a private signing for GalaxyCon, which means M*A*S*H fans in dozens of countries can order their own personalized autographed photographs.
GalaxyCon runs pop culture conventions as well as virtual events that offer fans the chance to video chat with celebrities and order autographed photographs and more. In addition to the United States, they ship to many other countries including Australia, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Norway, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, an Vietnam. A complete list of international countries can be found here.
Autograph signings through GalaxyCon are simple. You pick the photograph or photographs you want autographed and pay. That’s it. GalaxyCon does the rest. Depending on the celebrity, photographs can be personalized with your name or a character’s name. For an additional fee you can have the photograph authenticated by James Spence Authentication (JSA). If you want, you can even send in your own item to be autographed.

This may be the first time any member of the M*A*S*H cast have signed for a company that offers fans the opportunity to purchase autographed photos online. Jamie Farr and Loretta Swit have been signing at pop culture conventions for decades. Gary Burghoff and Jeff Maxwell have also signed at conventions. William Christopher may have as well. Alan Alda, Mike Farrell, and Gary Burghoff occasionally made in-person appearances to promote their books and sign copies.
I’ve purchased a number of autographed photos through GalaxyCon over the past few years and have been very happy with the results. It can take up to 10 weeks to get an autographed photo back but it is well worth the wait. I’ll be ordering autographed photos of Loretta Swit and Jamie Farr this weekend. Will you?
