Ebay for Autographs? Instead, Ebay for Memorabilia to get Autographed.

Ebay as we all know, has its serious limitations when it comes to authentic autographs. However, I as a collector have used Ebay since 1999 as a source of finding some really rare and collectable items as a means of getting such rare goodies and memorabilia signed at a later point in time. Case in point:

Last February Helen Reddy was doing a one day signing in Burbank, Ca. Where else would I have found the 7 Helen Reddy albums that I brought to her to get autographed? Last month Tatum O'Neal was also in Burbank signing autographs with her father Ryan. How fast did I need my "Paper Moon", "The Bad News Bears", and "Love Story" items in hand? Within a week they were all delivered to me at my door.

Also, to enhance your autograph collection, you can surround your signatures with other memorabilia from that band, that artist, that movie, that celeb., some of which is only found (if at all if you even could) overseas and in other countries. To really surround your autographed items with almost a shrine to a special movie, or in my case, Supertramp's "Breakfast In America" tour or Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising" tour collections, please see some of these very rare collectables for the most part, were all obtained off of Ebay:

It is said, it is not just the autograph you obtain, its what the autograph is signed on. For me, no more having to stroll from used record store to used record store, or waste time and gas going from one dingy and dusty Hollywood poster shop to another. No more calling import record stores all across the country. That was so 1980's and 1990's. Ebay is what it is, and eventually and seemingly has it all. For me as a collector, it remains the finest resource available today to get the items that I intend to get signed.
