PostSubject: My newest autographs   Sat Dec 31, 2016 5:01 pm

As most know I do collect autographed items I was lucky enough to get these two this month one is of Gerald Home who played Squidhead and of course the beautiful Carrie Fisher the first I got from a friend in the garrison who was given a few to hand out to us lucky buggers, and the one of Carrie I just picked up from a collector in the city he has a few others I will grab later.

Really nice pick ups. Do you display all of your autographs?

Even better that the squid head one is on a 501st card. Both are fantastic.

Thanks guys, I need to get some more frames but yes I do display them, I have a combo of signed helmets and photos.

This is just a few other items I have.

Of course it's two of the best characters out there and the man himself! Angry SW

Those you have to display!

PS - On the Fett helm, did he sign on the scarred part purposely?

Not sure if he did I was lucky enough to get the two helmets in a trade with a store owner and now friend here in the city. Both were from a collector I never met.

I don't mean to be rain on your parade, but the Fisher is a common preprint that was given out back in the day.

Here are a few of the common ones that were out there.  These are courtesy of the autograph collecting forums on Rebelscum.

Take notice of the one in the middle of bottom row.  Literally impossible to produce 2 exactly the same autographs... unless they are copies.

I know they were part of a auction for a wildlife group in the US. I dont remember the name of it but the guy I got it from has the paperqork for the others like Elvira and a bunch of others.

Unfortunately that means whoever auctioned them didn't know what they had either.

Even Kevin Smith fell victim.

Let me guess, your Leia photo is also a 5x7?

These were all sent in the mail in response to autograph requests.

It's not uncommon to have a large amount of signed photos that celebrities do, most online shops that sell them get large amounts done if not they would loose money. Think about any comicon they have stakes of photos for you to buy the only time you won't is having something you personally brought there. About 60% of autographed photos you will see everywhere online.

I have 3 helmets myself that were all signed by David Prowse and if I did a search I would fine a large number as well.same as all the other photos I have the only difference is my two main helmets are numbered with paperwork indicating how many were done.

Most who send things to studios as well to get signed are useally signed by a staff member not the celebrity.

For me its a great photo of her I paid little for it and don't plan on selling any of my collection. People who think selling Star Wars stuff will net them large amounts of money should instead just put that in the bank as you will not make much for the pieces in a collection.

For me if I see it and like it and it's in my amount I set aside for collection stuff then I buy it but I never started collecting to make huge profits I got into collecting because I enjoy it. I have lots of silver coins for investment if I want.
