If someone is willing to pay for it, someone else seems to be
willing to sell it, and the offerings on this page range from autographs,
magazines and movie scripts to lunch boxes, neck ties, cigarette cards,
reproduction jewelry, costumes, props and even "things" once owned by the stars.
I'm no expert in this category, but if you are buying or possibly selling, some
of the vendors here should be able to help you.
Classic Celebrity Autograph Dealers:
Autograph collecting is a tricky business because a collector
can never really know for sure that an autograph is the real thing unless the
celebrity him/herself actually signs in the collector's presence. And
sometimes it's not even a question of honesty among dealers, as many of them
don't know themselves if what they are selling is legitimate or not. (For
more information on the hazards of buying celebrity autographs, read John Reid's
article on Autograph
Collecting - Buyer Beware.) Still, if you've just got to have
someone's signature, try the dealers below:
