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.

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.
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.
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.
All in all it was tough to collect autographs at Monaco this year. There are more and more professional collectors who make the drivers angry. They are not experienced without any good behavior. So it is normal that difficult drivers behave stressed and unlikely…
