    FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona is one of the biggest football clubs in the whole world. The club sells souvenirs for thousands of Euro year after year and hits next sales records. It seems to me that original, received in-person autograph could be better and more valuable item than next scarf or t-shirt. This is why so much fans decide to go to FC Barcelona training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. I was there several times and I did not regret at all even if I did not collect lots of signed photos.

    Autograph Collecting at the Berlinale film festival was difficult this year. During the cold weather celebrities didn't stay long time outside but we still have some great success while many stars had been kind and friendly and signed some wonderful photographs for us.
