About autograph collecting

on Friday, 08 April 2011. Posted in General

A favorite pastime of Goethe, Brahms, John F. Kennedy, and Franklin D. Roosevelt - autograph collecting is an international hobby whose roots stretch back to Cicero and ancient Rome.

More affordable than fine art, autograph collecting literally puts in your hands letters and documents written by history’s most fascinating personalities. Unlike any other collectible, autographs tell a story that draws you into the past while simultaneously engaging you in a deeper understanding of civilization's events as recorded by the men and women who helped shape them.

We are emotional autograph collector's ourself and strongly believe that each collection is a kind of mirrow of the own personal history, focues interest, passion or memory.

Whether you are new to autographs or a seasoned collector, we would be delighted to discuss your interests and act as your “personal curator.”

 

Finally we like to show a wonderful letter of former US president Bill Clinton which shows the joy of autograph collecting.

“None of my other investments give me the joy that autographs do,  

because they make me feel that I am holding a piece of history in my hands.”

    Jenson Button:

    Jenson was difficult to collect. His Motohome war located inside the paddock and everytime he had a break of testing he disappeared inside. The only chance to collect his autograph was to wait in front of his truck. Then it was possible to get 1 autograph.

    Ferrari:

    It was quite unusual to see Sebastian Vettel in red colors. But good news: he is still the most friendly driver in the F1 paddock. He had really fun to sign Ferrari pictures, although he does not sign as much as in the past. But still very satisfying.

    Kimi was like always. He signed one photograph per meeting, but it was really tough to meet and get him.

    Michael Schumacher:
    He was very relaxed. Wrote comparatively much, but still hard to collect. One has to know where he is staying at which time. One evening he was playing poker with Kubica, Heidfeld, Fisichella, Rosberg, Briatore and Ecclestone. He finished the game at 1 o’clock in the morning. Then we got the nicest signatures ever.
