The New IADA-CC.COM will emerge as the autograph networking site of the future. The autograph industry has been stagnant for the past few years after bursting into a multi-million dollar industry. The industry being one of the rare businesses where your investment has the ability to sky rocket to amounts that top all other investment industries. The major difference between autographs and the major investment industries like stocks, bonds, coins, gold,etc is that they all rely on supply and demand, but the autograph industry has an exclusive factor which is uncontrollable, the unfortunate death of the celebrity signer. Who can't say they don't remember the passing of those legends like Marilyn Monroe, Mickey Mantle, John Lennon? This phenomenon has really showed up more recently with the deaths of Farrah Fawcett, Heath Ledger, and Michael Jackson. Autograph prices are reported to reach levels never imagined. Auctions houses are reporting sales that are 45 to 50 times the actual value. One newscaster reported, "Sales of Michael Jackson has reached Elvis Presley status". Yes this has been the trend of late. Autograph collecting has turned into one of the best investments ever.
Along with monetary value increasing on autographs at record levels comes some negativity. Money sometimes brings the worse out in people. The simple photo, album, and even baseball becomes an opportunity for the ruthless to take advantage of the unknowing collector. The forgeries rise to record levels. This is something that can be controlled. With understanding, education, knowledge, and help from the some of the most renowned and respected autograph dealers in the industry, no longer does the collector have to fear the old adage "Buyer Beware".
