"The Collectibles Markets are booming with world record prices being set virtually every day. Much of this attention is on top-quality autographs, and historical signed documents, which have become favoured assets for investors seeking diversification from mainstream investment markets. There are currently 200m serious collectors around the world, with the market size expected to double in the next 20 years. This increased demand for an already limited supply market is a huge attraction to investors. Couple that with the opportunity to own, and hold, a unique piece of history and it's a compelling mix."
