Quite honestly,unless people obtain every graph themselves. We are hypocrites. I'm quite pleased with all the treasures Ive acquired fron these "professionals". To only do that for a living is nerve wracking! Drive to the city,park,wait for hours,compete with other people for the possibility of getting something nicely signed aint easy. I completely support ethical pros.Not the type that push little kids or abuse the celebs if they don't sign or cause drama (see Red Bull You Tubes,ugh!).
its actualy like begging for money
I doubt people could obtain every graph themselves with hordes of sellers shoving them out of the way as they shove their stuff in these celebs' faces.
The thing I have going for me is that most of what I collect is indie artists, which are generally quite easy to get and don't attract as much attention from pro collectors. Plus it's what I really like, so it works out perfectly.
