Autograph Collecting.
Autograph collecting has a wide & diverse of area to collect in. But also worth getting the right type of autograph as this can make the resale value a lot higher. If you get an autograph with "To Fred from Sean Connery" is only going to be worth half of one saying "To my good friend with best wishes Sean"
What the autograph is on, is also very much of relevance to an autograph collector. If you have a photo of George Best the football player it will be quite a collectors catch. But if you have the same autograph on a Manchester united foot ball player shirt, you can name your own price (within reason of course).

Purchasing an autograph.
Autograph collecting can be a very enjoyable and fulfilling hobby. However, there are a number of pitfalls to be avoided when collecting through internet auctions such as ebay. Here is some advice and collecting tips that you may find useful.

1. Whenever possible, try to buy from a UACC Registered Dealer. This will ensure that you are buying from someone with many years experience and expertise in autographs and who also has agreed to be bound by the trading ethics of this organisation. It will also allow you some redress if you feel that you have been dealt with improperly or unfairly.

2. Do not buy from ebay sellers without feedback or who have Private ID or private bidder information.

3. Remember, a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) is only as valid as the reputation and experience of the dealer by whom it is issued.

4. Be extremely careful when buying through an internet auction. Remember the maxim, "If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is!" Everyone is aware of the value of autographs now and professional dealers are always on the lookout for items to add to their stock. Consequently, there are very few bargains to be had, either for collectors or dealers!

5. If you are an inexperienced collector, do not buy from sources such as ebay. Rather pay a little more and visit the recognised experts

6.Some autograph websites and internet auction sites that we have seen appear to have an inordinate amount of what we consider very difficult ('almost impossible) signed items in their stock. Be suspicious of multi-signed photographs or posters of the very latest 'blockbuster' releases as it would be highly unlikely that these are genuine.
