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.”

    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.

    When I have heard that Steven Spielberg comes to my city I was deeply excited. I thought about a chance to get one of the best autograph in my collection. Spielberg has shoot scenes here in Wroclaw  to his new movie called 'St. James Place'. Basically, sets were located in Berlin and Potsdam, but a crew planned to visiting Poland for a few days. Additionally, local media spread rumors about Tom Hanks, Janusz Kaminski or Sebastian Koch are coming as well. Finally, in the middle of November, here they come.

    Jenson Button:

    He was in a good mood and tried to fullfil as many autograph wishes as he can. But you have to be at the right place at the right time. Sometimes two autographs were possible.

    NBA Global Games 2014 in Berlin was great opportunity for basketball fans to obtain autographs from members of NBA Champions San Antonio Spurs. A game was planned on 8th October, but the team already arrived to Berlin on 5th October. I came to capitol of Germany 1 day later. It gave me more than a 2 days to collect.  Players, coaches and stuff stayed in The Ritz Carlton Hotel, well-situated in the city centre, not so far Grosser Tiergarten or Brandenburg Tor, what furthered to coming out of hotel.
