— Jeff Woolf

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Kobe Bryant signed and inscribed 1992 middle school yearbook with a reference to the Los Angeles Lakers, and a love poem handwritten by Michael Jordan when he was in middle or high school, signed “Michael Jeffrey Jordan”, are expected top lots in Iconic Auctions’ Internet-only Autographs & Memorabilia auction, online now and ending Feb. 29th.

Interested parties can view the entire auction catalog and bid now, at www.IconicAuctions.com. Most of the items have been authenticated by Beckett, REAL, James Spence and other reputable authenticating services. Others still are accompanied by letters or certificates of authenticity.

Over 700 lots are up for bid, in a range of collecting categories, not just sports. These include politics and history, music and entertainment and more, with rare, collectible items signed by such luminaries as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, The Beatles, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Dylan, Abraham Lincoln, Tupac Shakur, Derek Jeter, Ted Williams, Mike Trout and others.

The yearbook, from NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s 8th grade year at Bala Cynwyd Middle School in California, is boldly inscribed in blue ballpoint pen on the second-to-last left page. It reads: “In a few years you will probably be dunking on me. NOT!! How about those Lakers – Your friend, Kobe Bryant #24”. Four years later Bryant wore #24 for the Lakers (minimum bid: $2,500).

The Michael Jordan love poem, titled “Only You”, was penned by His Royal Airness to a girl he presumably fancied at school. In turns it is sentimental (“Only you can kiss on my cheeks”), devout (mentioning “the great man above”) and awkward (“I hope you grow very, very tall”). The signature is a rare full-name example and an early Jordan autograph (minimum bid: $2,500).

“The market for basketball autographs and memorabilia has exploded in the last several years, and the Kobe Bryant middle school yearbook and Michael Jordan handwritten teenage love poem are two of the most unique pieces we've ever handled in that genre,” said Jeff Woolf, the president of Iconic Auctions. The Kobe yearbook, in particular, is both timely and poignant.”

Woolf added, “It’s crazy if you think about it. Here’s a kid rooting for the Lakers who not only ends up a player on the team four years later, but arguably goes on to become the greatest player in team history. You just don't see something so prophetic like that ever surface. It's amazing. Bryant mentions in his Showtime documentary that he developed his mentality for basketball during the time when this yearbook was signed. You can see that reflected in his first sentence.”

An exceedingly rare four-language ship’s pass document dual signed by George Washington (as President, “Go. Washington”) and Thomas Jefferson (as Secretary of State, “Th. Jefferson”), dated June 21, 1793, carries a minimum bid of $10,000; while a letter handwritten by Abraham Lincoln on Executive Mansion stationery, dated May 11, 1861 (even “Executive Mansion” was handwritten by Lincoln), addressed to the Secretary of the Navy, has a minimum bid of $5,000.

An original pressing from 1963 of the U.K. Parlophone album With the Beatles, signed by all four members of the Fab Four, in overall fine condition with multiple surface impressions, has a minimum bid of $5,000. Also, a stereo pressing of the classic 1965 Columbia album Bringing It All Back Home, boldly signed by singer, songwriter and poet Bob Dylan in blue felt tip marker, a near-mint offering from one of the toughest signers in the world, has a minimum bid of $1,000.

A baseball dual-signed by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig while the two were part of a barnstorming tour of cities across the country, featuring Ruth’s bold signature in blue ink across the sweet spot and Gehrig’s on the panel below, has a minimum bid of $5,000. Also, a Hillerich & Bradsby W166 model bat dating from 1951-1954, game-used by the Splendid Splinter Ted Williams, with ball marks and Williams’s number “9” handwritten on the knob, has a minimum bid of $3,000.

The earliest-known game-used jersey from Derek Jeter, worn when he was a player with the minor league Greensboro Hornets, size 46, with impeccable provenance from the team oner at the time, has a minimum bid of $3,000; while a 33 ½ inch Old Hickory baseball bat used by Mike Trout in the minor leagues, signed by the Los Angeles Angels slugger “Mike Trout, 2010 Game Used”, with multiple ball marks, a crack and taped handle, has a minimum bid of $2,000.

Virtosu Art Gallery

An exhibition of limited edition prints has opened at Virtosu Art Gallery, New York.

To me the art is cohesiveness – empowering people to start thinking of themselves.”

— Gheorghe Virtosu

NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — 'To Celebrate' – presents an important and highly valuable collection of limited edition prints, showcasing Gheorghe Virtosu's artwork perfected through mediums as etchings, woodcuts, engravings, and lithographs.

Highlights from the collection include:

Alien – Edition to address Social Alienation Awareness Week 2019: "reducing the stigma of loneliness."
Connection of Civilizations – Edition to celebrate United Nations Secretary-General Dialogue of civilizations.
J. F. Kennedy – Edition to commemorate J. F. Kennedy centennial year.

With the rising demand, the value of Virtosu's limited edition prints is increasing. Generally passed to hand and viewed on a scale of intimate appreciation, the work is influencing a broad audience.

Over the last two years, Virtosu's art prints have become a significant contribution to museum collections, securing their significance. Every image in this exhibition resonates with a sense of progression in time through diversity, delicacy, and depth of tone, variation in color, and the emotion conveyed by its maker.

When asked: "Why are Virtosu paintings worth so much when there is such a large volume of his work?"

Alina Livneva, the Art Director, said: "Indeed the artist created 3500 works so far and is far from retreating. However, after the announcement that he will undertake only significant projects starting in 2019, the signal was seen as a limitation, raising the Virtosu market price tag. 99 % of Virtosu's works are in private hands, and no auction placement have been registered so far. It seems people are not keen on selling."

'To Celebrate' presents the sensory experience, while offering the rare opportunity to walk away with an integral piece made by the artist.

Featuring an exciting array of new-to-market works by a contemporary master, and with estimates starting from only $650, the sale offers something for every collector, at every price level!

Lamplight Hollow – a Video Game About Gaslighting – Featured at DreamHack Anaheim

Image of the video game 'Lamplight Hollow' a short game by Luciano Sgarbi rated E for Everyone, asks "Where do YOUR dreams take you?" - 2019 Life.Love. Game Design Challenge Winner and 2020 Jungle Jam DreamHack Anaheim Winner..

Lamplight Hollow, an award winning video game with a compelling message

In Lamplight Hollow you will be joined by a motley group of characters who might or might not be helpful.

You might even recall those memories that were seemingly too-easy-to-forget.

Lamplight Hollow, explores the form of psychological manipulation called gaslighting and will be featured this weekend at DreamHack Anaheim.

Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society.”

— Drew Crecente

ATLANTA, GA, USA, February 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lost in a lucid dream, dropped into a dungeon, Lamplight Hollow may sound like a typical fantasy adventure video game, but dig a little deeper and players soon discover an experience that plumbs the depths of psychological manipulation.

Lamplight Hollow makes a public appearance this week at DreamHack Anaheim as one of the winners of the Jungle Jam, competing against nearly 160 other games to be selected for the expo showcase.

Lamplight Hollow, a surprisingly deep interactive experience about the psychological cruelty of gaslighting, was originally developed by Luciano Sgarbi for Jennifer Ann’s Group's Life.Love Game Design Challenge in 2019. The game was one of the winning games from the 12th annual challenge.

“Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society,” said Drew Crecente, executive director for Jennifer Ann’s Group. “Using them as a tool for social change to prevent violence is fitting and also very effective. Adolescents prefer to explore a sensitive issue like dating abuse through self-paced exploration and these free video games are an ideal way for them to learn this critical information. Educators also appreciate the fact that these games, although free, are evidence-based and expert informed. Parents also like that these games are an easy and judgment-free approach to engaging their teenagers about healthy dating relationships.”

The game can be played during DreamHack Anaheim, which runs from Feb. 21 to Feb 23 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The game is also available to be played online at GameJolt, Gaslight.Games and itchio.

The annual Live.Love. Game Design Challenge tasks game makers with creating video games that explore different facets of domestic violence without including any violence in the game itself. Last year’s theme was gaslighting, the act of psychologically manipulating someone into questioning their sanity.

Since 2008, Jennifer Ann’s Group’s Gaming Against Violence program has produced more than fifty serious video games about these serious issues. Previous video game topics include bystander awareness, consent, healthy relationships, and teen dating violence prevention. This award-winning approach to violence prevention is evidence-based and the games are available for use in university studies.

Jennifer Ann's Group is named for Jennifer Ann Crecente, a high school senior killed by her ex-boyfriend. The nonprofit charity was created by her dad, Drew Crecente, in her memory.

More information about Jennifer Ann's Group is available at JenniferAnn.org.

Justin Williams of Park City Utah: Best Video Game Sequels

Justin Williams of Park City Utah examines some of the best follow-ups to classics.

PARK CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Producing a sequel that lives up to its predecessor is often a tough prospect to face: fans of the original might be resistant to change, overly-critical of new features, or resistant to new story beats. And yet, there are those sequels that outshine their progenitors, improving on them in nearly every single way. Justin Williams of Park City Utah counts down some of his favorite sequels and lists his reasons why they’re great.

Justin Williams of Park City Utah starts with a real classic: Sonic the Hedgehog 2. While the original introduced several of the franchises key iconic features, including collecting golden rings for health, speeding through levels as quickly as you can, and Sonic’s nemesis Dr. Robotnik (played in the new movie by Jim Carrey), it wasn’t until the sequel that two mainstays of the series were introduced. One is Sonic’s “spin dash” move, which lets him curl up in a ball and take off at high speed. The other is Sonic’s sidekick, Miles “Tails” Prower, the two-tailed fox that can fly. Both of these additions have been included in every single release since. Besides these iconic additions, Justin Williams of Park City Utah says that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Genesis also included slightly better graphics, catchier music, and longer levels than the first game, making it an overall improvement.

Perhaps, the most agreed-upon “best sequel” contender, Justin Williams of Park City has to bring up Half-Life 2. The first Half-Life was a revolutionary first-person shooter for its time, and Half-Life 2 improved upon it in every single way. Incredible graphics that hold up even today, intelligent AI enemy characters, and an impressive physics engine that was utilized to solve puzzles all helped Half-Life 2 become one of the most legendary sequels of all time. Justin Williams of Park City points out that the game, unfortunately, suffers from “Seinfeld syndrome”: while it was revolutionary for the time and did things no other game was doing, it inspired so many future games that it now seems relatively generic. Those who were around for its release know, however, the special place this game holds in gaming history.

Finally, Justin Williams of Park City Utah shares with us his last pick for worthy sequels: Batman: Arkham City. This entry in the Batman: Arkham series is the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, and expands upon the original’s mechanics in ways that were risky, but proved to pay off. Justin Williams of Park City explains that the original Batman game, Arkham Asylum, took place entirely inside of the titular building. This allowed the developers to craft a finely-tuned, detail-oriented story and game world that received the praise of critics and fans alike.

For the sequel, this concept was turned on its head as the game transitioned into the popular “open world” format of other games such as Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row. At first, people were trepidatious about the change, believing there was no way the game would retain its quality—however, those fears proved to be unfounded, and Batman: Arkham City not only lived up to the first game, but also won several awards.

It’s hard to live up to fan favorites, but these sequels prove that it’s possible.

Justin Williams Laser Explores the “Metroidvania” Genre

Justin Williams Laser explains the oddly-named genre and lists some of his favorites.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Justin Williams Laser points out that there are some video game genres that are self-explanatory—most of them, in fact. First-person shooters are shooting games that put you behind the camera of a first-person viewpoint. Strategy games employ some sense of strategic thought. Even games with more esoteric genre names like “platformers” can be easily sussed out: you jump on platforms. In the case of the Metroidvania genre, no amount of logical thought will lead you to the correct definition unless you know the origins of the name.

If you’re at all familiar with classic video games, Justin Williams Laser explains, you might have already figured out how this genre received its name: the genre “Metroidvania” is a portmanteau of the titles of two classic video games, Metroid, and Castlevania. Justin Williams Laser points out that while the games couldn’t be more different thematically (Metroid tells the story of Samus Aran, battling space pirates on an alien world in the future, while Castlevania stays firmly planted on Earth in medieval times, and documents a vampire hunter’s battle against Dracula), the two shared common gameplay elements that at the time, weren’t so common.

One of the first of the genre is commonly considered to be the first Metroid game. In this game, released in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, you are dropped in the middle of an enormous game map, with little to no powers of your own. The map, while open-ended and encouraging exploration, still guides the player along a “main” path, leading to new areas. In these new areas, you obtain new powers that allow you to traverse new paths and unlock new areas. Justin Williams Laser explains that this is one of the core concepts of a Metroidvania game; a game must follow these tenets to be considered part of the genre.

Justin Williams Laser clarifies that at this point in time, the term “Metroidvania” had still not been coined, as the Castlevania games being released at the same time as the original Metroid were still being made in the vein of classic platformers, where the gameplay is separated by levels, and the player generally only moved from left to right in order to progress through the game.

While the style of game Metroid introduced began gaining popularity (Justin Williams Laser points out Super Metroid, the sequel released in 1994 as an example), it wasn’t until Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was released in 1997 for the PlayStation that the genre truly began taking off. It was sometime soon after this time period that the term “Metroidvania” was coined, although as Justin Williams Laser points out, no one is completely sure who originally invented the term.

Today, you can find a veritable ton of Metroidvania games of varying quality. Justin Williams Laser lists Dead Cells, Cave Story, Blasphemous, and Axiom Verge as some modern-day choices, just to name a few. One to definitely check out is Bloodstained, released in 2019 and created by Koji Igarashi, the man credited with establishing the defining features of the genre with 1997s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
