Why we're called OUTLAW Hobbies

Outlaw Hobbies/Autographs

Bit of an odd name for an autograph dealer, right? We've been getting a lot of questions lately about why we chose the name.

We started off 8 years ago as West Coast Ice Scripts due to strictly being a hockey collector/seller. The name stuck as our Ebay name and COA's are issued as West Coast Ice because that was our originating company.

In 2009, New Moon began shooting in Vancouver. With all the hype surrounding the movie, we decided maybe it was time to venture into celebrity autographs. The name "Outlaw Hobbies" was then chosen due to the huge animosity of crew working on the Twilight when we approached the cast for autographs. We were considered "Outlaws" to anyone working on the sets.

That is saying nothing about the Twilight cast however. As one of our first forays into the celebrity autographing, the Twilight cast couldn't have been a better choice. They were all young and extremely eager to sign. The film industry in Vancouver has picked up exponentially since then, and we continue to get autographs from tv as well as film and occasionally music.
