What Wikipedia says about autographs...

on Tuesday, 12 April 2011. Posted in General

An autograph (from the Greek: αὐτός, autós, "self" and γράφω, gráphō, "write") is a document transcribed entirely in the handwriting of its author, as opposed to a typeset document or one written by an amanuensis or a copyist; the meaning overlaps with that of the word holograph.

Autograph also refers to a person's artistic signature. This term is used in particular for the practice of collecting autographs of celebrities.

    In-Person autograph experience at Hockenheim 2008

     

    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.

    Formula One testings in Barcelona 2011

    All the interest was focused on Sebastian. During the day it was nearly impossible to collect his autograph. But there was a good chance in the late evening. Then all the fans were away so we got our requested signatures. Great to see that Sebastian is still very kind although he is a Champion!
