Believe this, Ripley: "Inside Edition" anchorman Bill O'Reilly isn't about to give up George, Abe, Teddy and Jimmy.

"Ripley's Believe It Or Not" approached O'Reilly about acquiring his collection of 42 presidential signatures, including Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt and Carter, the show's publicists said.Similar collections have been appraised at more than $100,000, they said.

O'Reilly, a history buff, said he was flattered by the offer for his collection but responded: "It's taken a long time to put together and it has sentimental value to me."
