The various ways of collecting celebrity signatures.


Autographs and signatures of our favourite celebrities have always been in demand. It might seem like a strange thing to want but the appeal lies in having just a little piece of the star you really admire, it might be a photograph or a film still signed by a movie star or a football autographed by your favourite team, whatever it is you know the person has handled the item and signed it personally.

Some people are general collectors. If you have your own autograph book it might be your personal goal to get all the pages filled. Some even go to a lot of effort and expense to track down that coveted name.

There are a lot of ways to obtain an autograph. Quite often fan clubs and groups associated with a particular star will have signed photos they can send out to fans, but with this method there aren’t really any guarantees as to who actually signed it.

You could go for the personal approach and travel around to try to meet the star in person. If you’re looking for an actress or actor try attending film premiers or promotional events. Of course, if you happen to bump into them on the street or in a restaurant this would be a great opportunity to ask them to sign something. But remember to respect their privacy and boundaries; if they’re eating a meal with their family they might not appreciate the interruption!

If you’re looking for music stars you could try waiting at the stage door after gigs. There’s no guarantee of seeing them or them having time to stop but it’s worth a try and you’ll have enjoyed a good show whether you meet them or not!  

Probably the most practical way of getting all the autographs you want without spending a fortune in travel and show tickets is to buy items from reputable sellers.

There is a huge business built around celebrity memorabilia and you can probably find what you’re looking for with a lot less hassle.

The internet has made tracking down wanted items a whole lot easier. You could try ebay or other auction sites where a lot of people are selling this kind of thing. The internet will also come in handy with researching other retailers specializing in this kind of merchandise. If you’re looking for something rare or from a particularly elusive star it’s worth talking to a professional who can help you track it down.

When you’re buying online though, always make sure you’re buying from a trustworthy source.

It might be worth doing your research before you buy, make sure you know what the signature you want looks like so you’ll be more likely to be able to spot a fake and avoid being scammed.

Another thing that’s worth a try is local sales and fairs. This method isn’t so good if you’re looking for something specific but for a general search you never know what you might find!

Perhaps the best way though is conventions and events where you will be able to see and handle the item before you buy so you can decide whether it’s genuine. You can also talk to the sellers in person who might even be able to give you proof of authenticity.

Wherever you buy from though, it’s worth setting yourself a budget as it’s very easy to get carried away, especially if you’re looking to complete a set or buy something unusual. Make certain you know what things are worth and don’t get talked into paying more than you want to.
