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.

“I Am The Greatest!“: Eine Studie zu den Handschriften von Muhammad Ali
von Heinz-Ulrich Kammeier

Das Sammeln von Handschriften berühmter Persönlichkeiten bereitet in der Regel große Freude, es sei denn es stellt sich heraus, dass man im Nachhinein erkennen muss unechte Signaturen in seiner Sammlung zu haben. Auch wenn diese Erfahrung schmerzlich ist (der Verfasser dieser Zeilen weiß, worüber er schreibt), so ist es doch hilfreich ein Buch an die Hand zu bekommen, das einem hilft, Falschsignaturen zu erkennen.

Shawn Anderson, Markus Brandes und Stephen Koschal haben ein solches vorgelegt, in dem sie die Signiergewohnheiten und auch die Falschunterschriften des wohl größten Boxsportlers aller Zeiten, Cassius Clay bzw. Muhammad Ali vorstellen und an zahlreichen Beispielen erläutern.

Im vorliegenden Buch mit dem Titel “The Collector’s Guide to Muhammad Ali Autographs“ stellen die drei Autoren über 100 echte und falsche Handschriften des an Parkinson leidenden früheren Boxweltmeisters aller Klassen vor und beleuchten alle Facetten: die echten Unterschriften, die reproduzierten und die gefälschten, die das FBI auf den Plan riefen.

Auch wenn man nicht das Gebiet „Sport“ sammelt: das vorliegende Werk gewährt einen detaillierten Einblick in die Signiergewohnheiten eines faszinierenden und doch so unglücklichen Menschen namens Muhammad Ali bzw. Cassius Clay.

Das Buch kann bei Markus Brandes, Wiesenwinkelstrasse 1, CH-8593 Kesswil, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. zum Preis von € 10 bestellt werden.

    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.

    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.
