LAMINATED Autographs - Acceptable Or Not?

   I'd enjoy hearing feedback on this topic.  Let's say it's a very rare signer whom you've searched far and wide for.  You find them....and the piece is laminated (could be an album page, a handwritten letter, etc.). 

   What would you do?  Buy it for it's significance and your desire to have something from them?  Pass on it because of the lamination?  Offer less than what an unlaminated piece might be worth?

    Also, I'm wondering if the laminate affects the ability to…

Stuck on Autographs

Two years ago, I met Dominic Chianese at Westchester County Center in White Plains, New York.  My wife and I gave him a box of Italian pastries from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. He was very appreciative and kind.  While he was enjoying his sfogliatella, I noticed some of the items that he was autographing.  Photographs of Johnny Ola and Uncle Junior.  He was also autographing sheets of small stickers.  I realized that the autographed stickers would one day appear on trading…
