News-Antique.com - Aug 22,2008 - Autograph collectors come in as many shapes and sizes as do the autographs that are collected.
Teens tend to want autographs of the musicians, band members or latest pop idols. It is far more often the adults that want things such as the historical autographs as well as autographed photos of most of the Hollywood stars. Some collectors specialize in one genre but others collect each and every autograph that they can.
The collector may try to get an autograph at an event where the star is or they may even buy an autograph at one of the many stores that specialize in collectibles.
Collectors love collecting for the excitement of the acquisition and none may be as passionate as an autograph hound. They take care of these fragile bits of paper and treat them well. We owe our thanks in fact to the collectors of years past, for it was they who saved so many bits of paper and other documents that otherwise, we may never have seen.
Autographs are judged on several criteria, rareness, whose signature it is , condition and how the autograph is presented.. An autograph may be on a paper, book, card or photo. Photos and books are generally deemed more valuable.
