Bela Lugosi "Dracula" Autographed Photo - STUNNING! When it comes to vintage horror movies, Dracula is in a league of it’s own. And, no figure represents this legendary monster as did the Original, Bela Lugosi.
News-Antique.com - Nov 17,2009 - When it comes to vintage horror movies, Dracula is in a league of it’s own. And, no figure represents this legendary monster as did the Original, Bela Lugosi.
As collectors of vintage Hollywood autographed memorabilia we discovered about 20 years ago that a genuine autographed Bela Lugosi photo as “Dracula” was extremely elusive. The few we saw were NOT authentically signed by Lugosi but by his wife at the time who signed most of his autograph requests. So, you can imagine when about six years ago we had the opportunity to acquire a stuning, never befre seen vintage photo of Bela Lugosi in a fatal “Dracula” scene. Not only an incredinly genuine signed photo, but the provenance was unquestionable.

Many collectors of high end, museum grade collectibles often don’t know where to go or who to trust for their most desirable collecting needs. As a collector for over 25 years, I understand the frustration of not only locating genuinely rare choice items, but also finding a truly reputable source and/or dealer to buy from. And, most serious collector have been “burned” at least once or twice. I know I have. But, I also understand that being “burned” was part of the learning process, that I can hopefully share with the rest of the collector community so they don’t have to experience mistakes I made.
Conway’s Vintage Treasures web site was created about 13 years ago, and most recently underwent a major redesign. The site now offers collectors an advanced navigation system search feature, appealing product grid layout, hot topic videos, and an easier checkout system. Visitors can sign up for the Free monthly Newsletter which covers topics like hot selling collectibles, auction results, and monthly promotions of new acquisitions. It’s not only a place for serious collectors to buy but also a great education site for anyone who collects autographs, vintage movie posters, autographed sports memorabilia, antique fine art oil paintings, memorabilia and collectibles.
Probably the most important concern to a dealer of rare memorabilia is insuring and guaranteeing authenticity. Experience with authenticating memorabilia such as rare autographs is the value a reputable dealer brings to his clients.
Conway’s Vintage Treasures is owned by Kevin Conway, a collector of Vintage Hollywood, Historical & Sports Memorabilia for over 25 years. We pride ourselves with acquiring only the most exclusive, rare collectibles and memorabilia for the “special” collector.
