The John Wayne Mugs website is the collaborative effort of Dave Rinehart(left) and Mike Speck.  These two buddies first met like most John Wayne mug collectors as fierce enemies on Ebay.  Dave is considered the foremost expert on the mugs and is often consulted by the major auction houses for authentications and valuations.  Dave was blessed to obtain much of his knowledge directly from his dear friend Bob Williams who hand painted the earliest mugs for John Wayne.
