""...The only difference is that is was authorized...." And perhaps intent - pleasing a fan with a preprint, Autopen or secretarial is not quite forgery to me, esp with something like the Gleasons 1950's PC's. Unlike those…"

"10% sounds quite fair and yes, if they still are of interest to the collector after he knows that it is actually a secretarial autograph, then it should be no problem in selling them etc. "

"I completely agree with you on the ah, stinging point. I have discovered some secretarial autographs in our family collection which we for more that 40 years thought were the "real thing" and it was such a disappointment for us all,…"

"Agreed, The secretarials everyone received who wrote in to CBS in 1954 to get Honeymooners autographs - I believe those have some value as what they are to the Gleason/Honeymooners collectors. I have a set myself."

"I don´t count secreterials as autographs. I have, for example, a secreterial Elvis Presley. It´s not part of my autograph collection, but I have kept it as Elvis memorabilia sent from Graceland."

"I believe secretarial signatures do have some value. Obviously, it would be a fraction of a genuine signature. Value would depend on the scarcity of the celebrity. Perhaps 10% compared to a genuine example. The big issue is secretarial pieces being…"

Are secretarial autographs of any worth?

Dear all,I know this is a very debatable and uneasy topic but I would like to know your opinion - do you think that the secretarial autographs are of any worth?Because, on hand, in most cases, all important personalities did have their officially chosen people which would do some of the signing for them - as the amounts of (fan)mail would be probably unbearable or impossible for one person to answer - but on the other hand, the truth is that the original person did never signed it by hand.What…See More
