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.”

  • Autograph hunting at 50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen + Belgium F1 Grand Prix 2011

    50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen with Michael and Sebastian Vettel

    Both, Michael and Sebastian, were close to the fans. So it was possible to collect a lot of great autographs. Michael wrote autographs in many different situations. Sebastian wrote even more always trying to fulfill every autographs wish. At the end of the day I had more Michael autographs as usual.

    Directly after leaving Kerpen, I travelled to Spa in Belgium. F1.

  • FC Barcelona

    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 Report - Berlinale film festival 2012

    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.
