Default The 10 Most Valuable Autographs Of Living People

One business that some people engage in is that of selling autographs. They may buy and sell them, or they may try to get the autographs themselves then sell them. (Some people get their autographs by mail, since some celebrities are happy to send their fans signed pictures.)

Anyway, that leads to the topic of this post... The top 10 most valuable autographs of living people! If you get one of these autographs, you could make a lot of moolah... Of course, the reason why these autographs are valuable is because they're hard to get!

I noticed that Russell Crowe's autograph is on this list (#7, worth $1,900), so I might go for that one... But first, I'll get myself a telephone-proof suit of armor!

Here's the list! (Go to the following page...)

Wow - that is cool stuff Dien!

Never knew that autographs could be that lucrative!

Especially when that blog says:

"All these autograph prices have increased more than 100% over the last 10 years and some by over 1000%. When you visit Stanley's you will see he believes the Top 100 autographs' return are better than stocks."

Brainstorming question: How would you convince someone like say Steve Jobs - who never gives autographs - to give one to you so that you can resell it at a profit*?

* You can't approach him and tell him to sign an autograph for charity...

What would you do?

Interesting investment subject with many micro Niche possibilities...

The Autograph subject always brings back Great Memories But Unfortunately...

As most Kids Do and Did...

We Never knew and realized what the Future of Sportcards and Autograph's would be!

In the 60's and early 70's I Collected NHL Hockey cards... Autographed Professional Baseballs from the NY Mets...

And had Autographs from Many many... NHL Hockey Greats!

From the Days of the Original Six teams...

Who are Now at the Age of Moving on into their Next Life.

If We only Knew back then What we know Today!

Hopefully, some can Learn a few Lessons and Apply it...

To Doing business Today.

Default Wouldn't ya know it.. Re: The 10 Most Valuable Autographs

Here I sit looking at a letter to my mom from Oprah dated 1992, and she's not worth zip. (Well, I don't count $15 as much.. That's what I've seen on Ebay)

Funny thing I just noticed, the letter to mom was mailed from Chicago on my birthday. Hmmm.

Default Here's How To Get Borat To Sign Your Phone Bill

On a tip from Joan Stewart I found a great resource to pick up celebrity signatures.

It can be quite lucrative to do so check out this chicken scrawl.


You might even be able to find the address of America's newest bigotgrant and international ambassador of disscultural learning, Borat.


You can tell him it's an old custom and a sign of good luck to have new friends sign your phone bill.
