Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
I have a few dozen autographs I have acquired in-person. These are largely from Hollywood, musicians, comedians, and sports. I also have a couple of autographs (on letterhead) from Ted Kennedy (are those water stains?). Then I have a few (5-6) that I bought about 15 years ago from Ubid all of which came with “Madison Sports” COA’s. So I’m not only very concerned about authenticity, but wondering about any recourse I might have—these include Mantle, DiMaggio, Koufax, and Ali.
What is your level of expertise?
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
Sadly, I lost the Autograph I acquired from my first concert (at the age of 6), it was Bo Diddley. So probably either Santana or B.B. King.
My dream collection would be Hendrix, Morrison, and Joplin—-I would give up all of the ones I have to acquire those! Unfortunately my collection is worth a fraction of what it would take to acquire one of those.
Why do you collect?
Fun, bragging rights, investment, that’s about it.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
Hitler, so I could kill him at the same time.
