Whenever I am asked to name my favorite autograph in my autograph collection, I always answer that it is my Alfred Hitchcock autograph. That has been my standard answer for many years. There are, however, autographs in my autograph collection that I consider to be personal favorites, even though many autograph collectors may consider them to be unremarkable. Regardless, I would never want to be without them.
The best example of an autograph in my autograph collection that is a personal favorite, even though many autograph collectors may consider it to be unremarkable, is my Steven Spielberg autographed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial photo. The autograph is neither rare nor valuable to many autograph collectors. Those considerations mean absolutely nothing to me. I would never wish to part with it.
My Steven Spielberg autographed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial photo is a personal favorite autograph in my autograph collection, despite it being considered neither rare nor valuable by many autograph collectors.
I love the cropping of the 8x10 photo, as well as the boldness and the placement of the autograph. I also love the way that the blue Sharpie presents itself on the image. The autograph is a personal favorite autograph in my autograph collection for those reasons, as well as the simple fact that Steven Spielberg is my favorite director of all time, and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is my favorite Steven Spielberg film. I absolutely love the autograph.
As autograph collectors, we often become concerned with unnecessary considerations that distract us from the enjoyment of the hobby. Do you have a personal favorite autograph in your autograph collection that many autograph collectors may consider to be unremarkable? If so, what is it?
