This comes from my personal collection, back when I was active in the world of autograph collecting. There was a time when I was an Autograph Collecting Superfreak. I created a few Guides on autograph authenticity. I wrote articles for The Pen and Quill, Autograph Collector, The Autograph Review, and The Autograph Collectors Magazine. I published my own newsletters Autograph Research, Celebrity Home Address Newsletter, and Space Autograph News. I wrote the book Space Autograph Price Guide, something the astronauts bought to keep track of their values. I was quoted in sources as diverse as Playboy Magazine and The American Journalism Review. I got recognized for my contributions to the Star Trek autograph book published by the UACC many years ago. I had a lot of fun in that hobby. Now I'm selling off my favorite autographs to finance new adventures. Thanks for reading my listing!Here's a special message to my international customers. I really appreciate your business.
