Some of you might find this interesting. I guess someone had to do this sooner or later.... right?  Is it worth $2,300.00? 

Marketed by LONE STAR SPORTS MEMORABILA, who garner and authenticate celebrity signatures on various items (including diecast):

  • You are looking at an autographed/signed Al Pacino Die-Cast 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood 1:18 Scale.
  • This autographed 1:18 Scale Die-Cast 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Car has been personally hand-signed by actor, Al Pacino from The Godfather. This autograph is certified by Celebrity Authentics.
  • The photo comes with the numbered hologram and matching Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Payment is REQUIRED max 3 days after the close of the listing. Immediate payment is preferred.

Good Lord! That kind of money would be reserved for a signed and authentcated prop from the "Godfather". How many of these cheap diecasts did Pacino sign? A signed "Godfather" script would go for less unless it was his personal annotated copy.

Ridiculous.  The signature across the roof now makes this attractive model look much less so.

Not sure how many AP signed but obviously there's a correlation between quantity signed vs. value.  But, auh... yeah ...What's an AP signature (on paper) worth? A few thousand??    The 1/18 Cadillac adds nothing IMO.

To each his own, etc...   AND at least a few (you would assume) have paid the $2,300.00...     but yeah, I'm not too sure about this one.

Well, Al Pacino was great in the "Godfather" movies, but I really couldn't afford that kind of money for an autograph .... even it was on a great-looking '55 Cadillac. To be honest, I think I would just want to score that cool black 1955 Fleetwood Series 60 in 1/18 in unsigned condition from Greenlight ! I have their 1/43 scale version of this Cadillac (in deep blue) and it's superb (especially for it's price), so this 1/18 scale one would certainly be a treat, too.

It's an "OK" model (same as the original Tamiya Elvis pink Cadillac from 30 years ago...remember that one?)  I have them both.  At least they're in scale w/posable steering and look nice on the shelf.  Just the front doors open but without door frames, which is incorrect for a sedan. I have a few of the 1/43s too. Those are nice.

HA! I paid more those than the 1/18s

I would be delighted with the black Greenlight '55 Fleetwood sedan. It would make a terrific 1/18 companion to the Greenlight 1/43 Cadillac and the other Greenlight models I have in both those scales are very well done, especially at their price/detail level. They all display and photograph really well, too.

@chris I've seen Abraham Lincoln signatures go for less (ref.: Pawn Stars and Antique Road Show)

Youn mean this 1/18 signed 1955 Cadillac doesn't seem like a good value?   ..........no, say it isn't so.  😏 😏 😏
