Autographs: Setting the record straight!

Harrison Ford is perhaps one of the most sought after autographs in the world. Yes, he'll stop and sign for fans at some of his rare red carpet appearances, he's very nice about it! But what if you are not one of the lucky ones to be right there on the red carpet? Mr. Ford is very selective with the projects he accepts and this includes his agreeing to sign autographs for a very few select companies. Coolwaters knows there have been fakes made and below is a list of the signings Mr. Ford has participated in recently. The list below shows signings that Mr. Ford himself approved and agreed to and these companies had express permission to sell these signed products. If you're not buying from one of these sources you should question what you are buying and from whom!


JULY 19, 2006 THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL! MASTER REPLICAS FALCON PROP! This deal was brokered by Coolwaters Productions LLC and was the first time Mr. Ford ever signed officially for a licensed company. Mr. Ford was so impressed with the prop that Master Replicas had created that he accepted their offer to sign each and every limited edition plaque. Only 500 were created. Coolwaters was able to secure Mr. Ford's signature on a sample plaque just 2 days before San Diego Comic Con opened its doors that year. Fans were treated to the announcement that the FALCON would include a signed FORD plaque. The plaque itself was a prototype but did contain the actual signature of Mr. Ford. The signing of the plaques took place at Mr. Ford's office shortly after comic con and the prop replica sold out almost immediately. A portion of the sales of the Falcon prop went to Mr. Ford's charity of choice; CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL.


OCTOBER 12, 2006 FIRST EVER PRIVATE SIGNING OF STAR WARS & INDIANA JONES POSTERS! A deal almost 2 years in the making and it coincided with the Master Replicas signing. Mr. Ford agreed to sign a limited number of STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES posters for Coolwaters Productions LLC. The posters were all hand signed by Mr. Ford at his office in Los Angeles and Coolwaters' president Derek Maki was permitted to photograph each pieces being signed for the certificates of authenticity. The posters ranged from original one sheets from both films to licensed re-prints. Prices varied based on the value of the movie poster combined with Mr. Ford's authentic signature. The posters sold out almost immediately. Each certificate of authenticity featured a different background color to help deter forgeries and fakes being made and the serial numbers were hand written.


JULY 12, 2007 30th ANNIVERSARY TOPPS TRADING CARD SERIES STAR WARS A NEW HOPE TOPPS Trading Card company has been manufacturing STAR WARS trading cards since 1977. 30 years later they create the anniversary edition and it includes an extremely limited number of cards hand signed by Mr. Ford, the deal was brokered by Coolwaters and it included the stipulation that TOPPS placed the CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL logo on the Han Solo cards. Less than 20 of these cards were created and are perhaps one of the most sought after and RARE Ford collectibles out there! TOPPS, being a licensee of Lucasfilm LTD, also did the INDIANA JONES trading cards and it also included a limited number of authentic FORD signatures!


APRIL 18, 2008 CINEMAQUETTE SECURES MR. FORD'S APPROVAL FOR THE BEST INDIANA JONES ITEM EVER CREATED! After the success of the Master Replicas prop replica what item could have possibly topped it? THIS IS IT! This 1:3 scale cinemaquette (a unique statue that features a 100% exact likeness of Harrison Ford) of INDIANA JONES. Coolwaters had to pick up the prototype of this statue in the morning, bring it to Mr. Ford's office and then return the prototype all in a few hours! Once at the office the piece was set up so that when Mr. Ford arrived he could take a look at it. With bated breath we waited and he entered the office. He was speechless! Mr. Ford was astonished at how real it was, the life like skin on the face, the real hair and detailed clothes! Mr. Ford was so blown away that he accepted the proposal to sign the certificate of authenticity fort this piece! AND today a statue from the final run of the cinemaquetts stands in Mr. Ford's office! We want to point out that this item comes with a certificate of authenticity that features the APPROVED duplicated signature of Mr. Ford. This company does NOT claim to offer a hand signed version, they rather offer the certificate featuring Mr. Ford's signature as his official acceptance of the piece. This is the only licensed product that has this official "seal of approval" from Mr. Ford himself!


DATE UNKNOWN OFFICIAL PIX SIGNED HAN SOLO & INDIANA JONES 8x10 PHOTOS A licensee of Lucasfilm LTD, Official Pix provides the first ever signed licensed photos of Mr. Ford's most famous characters, Indiana Jones and Han Solo.

Official Pix has supplied collectors with FORD signatures on several occasions and each time the photos sold out almost immediately.


MARCH 2011 POP CENTURY BY LEAF SIGNED TRADING CARDS Being one of our most celebrated icons in Hollywood, LEAF comes to Coolwaters requesting that Mr. Ford signs for their upcoming trading card series called POP CENTURY. Like with the TOPPS trading cards, Mr. Ford signed his signature on the special holographic stickers that are affixed to the trading card. Mr. Ford approved everything about this card from the photo and design to the mini bio on the back.
