Has You Ever Been Featured In A Magazine Of How You Collect Autographs? If so, Will you please post it.
The reason why I asked is because in book stores (Barnes & Noble) starting this week, I have been featured in The Diecast Magazine, North America, Issue-26 (which is one of the best magazine out there on diecast collecting) which they wrote a full 3 page write-up (Pages 28, 30, & 32) on how I collect NASCAR & HOLLYWOOD, In-Person, "Picture Proof Autographs" on diecast. They even display 22 pictures of my collection in the article. It might sound that iI am self-centered, I am just proud how the article came out. So Please Take a Look and I hope you enjoy it!!!!
If you have been featured in a magazine of how you collect, Please post, I would enjoy reading it!!!!! Thanks Very Much!!!!! Fred
I've got pictures of my collection on my computer. I keep them for insurance purposes first but also i sometimes post some here. Only my family and best friends know what's going on in my "music room" ! And it's already enough... I heard stories about how some pictures posted on websites have been used to produce fake autographs, that's why I'm a bit more cautious now.
Taking a picture of the items being signed, I think is the best thing an autograph collector can do. It even helps the authenticator to authenticate your autograph. I have a Dale Earnhardt Jr. autograph that I recieved from him after he had a few Buds in a large group of people.I still took the photos of him signing and I am glad I did. It looked like two small loops and a long line. Without the pictures, it would never pass as authentic.
Nothing would make me mader than having someone even hinted that one of my autographs were not authentic!!!!!
I am thinking of starting a game on this site asking to "You Make The Call, Is It Authentic or Not" Then show a autograph, after everybody puts in their 2 cents, then show the picture of it being signed.
As for showing all my photos of my collection on this and other web-sites, Facebook, Magazines, I hope people don't think that I am show boating, I am trying to make a name for myself as a trusted worthy dealer when it comes time to sell. Even though I have been and I love collecting most all of my life, I always knew that in the long run, It is a investment, It is my retirement fund. So when I do retire and start selling, I hope that my name has been out their enough that a buyer will buy from me with confidence knowing that he is not just being some off the wall autograph, but an autograph from the Frederick Weichman "Picture Proof Autograph" collection.
