What is an autograph? It is a historical moment captured with an original signature stroke of the pen and/or writing of an iconic celebrity from the genres of politics, Hollywood and sports. Some of the most popular categories of autograph subjects are Presidents, military figures, sports, movie stars, popular culture, artists, social and religious leaders, scientists, astronauts and authors. You will find the most extraordinary autographs for sale here. Autographs from historical figures of classic Hollywood. Politics, Sports and History Makers from American culture.
Collectors specialize in many different fields. But, it is often the experience of buying the signature autograph of a larger then life figure that creates excitement. I am often asked why people collect autographs. For those who are not collectors of any kind, it is difficult to describe the excitement of creating & building a collection. But, autographs unlike baseball cards and comic books have a historical, cultural or social importance tied to them that is so intimately connected to the DNA, namely the signature that a celebrity or notable figure creates on the final autographed medium. It sometimes represents a historical moment in time or relates to a historical event, such as a letter in which Judy Garland discusses making the "Wizard of OZ". Or Abraham Lincoln's signature on a Presidential Appointment of a famous Civil War General.
For savvy collectors of these rare, museum grade collectibles it is hard to imagine how anyone could NOT get excited about owning such a momentous relic that represents a frozen moment in time in the era of classic Hollywood, history and vintage sports. Most people will never meet their sport or historical hero, so an autograph is the next best thing. An autograph is like owning a piece of that person's DNA captured when they held the piece of paper (or photo, baseball) and handwrote their name on it.
How could anyone deny the incredible experience of owning a document signed by Abraham Lincoln. Below are our most popular Autograph Categories:
- Presidential & Historical Autographs

- Comedy Celebrity Autographs
- Wizard of OZ Autographed Memorabilia
- Cartoonists & Animators Autographs

To some people Art is History, to others their obsession is collecting antique glass or pottery. Or, ask a sports memorabilia collector what it feels like to hold a Babe Ruth Signed Baseball in his hand or a Honus Wagner baseball card, the word spine tingling comes to mind.
But, imagine owning a genuine piece of history from some of the most extraordinary people to ever grace the earth including US Presidents, Scientists, Inventors, Hollywood legends and others that have left their immortal fingerprints on our everyday lives. An autograph is one of the most personal things we can acquire from these notables and cherish realizing it was a frozen moment in time during their lives. A signed President Theodore Roosevelt document represents a moment in his life when he stopped to write out and sign this check, in between, creating ideas and making decisions that would change the world forever. Did Thomas Edison sign this photo, when he was in the middle of inventing the light bulb or one of his other 1093 inventions? Or did Frank Sinatra sign one of our photos when he was recording "My Way"or shooting "High Society". Pretty exciting when you think about it!
Here we offer some of the most exciting, rare, genuine relics from those Extraordinary Humans who have made a genuine historical contribution to society and American cultue, even many years after they have gone. Think about how many movies or commercials you see with Frank Sinatra singing in the background or his voice in the restaurant last night.
What you'll find here are remarkable Autographed Treasures you are not likely to find anywhere else.
From Abraham Lincoln Genuine Signed Presidential Appointments to a personal letter from Alfred Hitchcock. Imagine having one of these historical relics showcased in your home or office.
A NOTE about Authenticity - We go to great lengths to AUTHENTICATE our autographs, especially in the age of internet auctions that seem to have become a safe haven for career forgers and inexperienced sellers of secretarials and forgeries. It is estimated that as high as 90% of all autographs on the online auction sites like eBay are NOT authentic. We provide you 20+ years of experience and integrity. And, as always we offer a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity on every autograph we sell.
How do I find autographs on this web site, that I am interested in?
We have designed the site for your convenience. On the selections below and the menu to the left hand column there are several categories of autographs to make it easy to locate exactly what you're looking for. For example, if you are looking for Presidential autographs, click on the Celebrity Autographs link in the left hand menu. You will see the autograph sub-categories appear. Also, if you are looking for something more specific such as a John Wayne autograph, just type "John Wayne autograph" (without the quotes) in the search box in the left column and all John Wayne autographs will appear. And, if you still have questions just click Contact Us on the top menu, and send us a question. We normally answer within a few hours.
Note: Most major celebrities, like Frank Sinatra signed autographs and personalized it to someone. Some collectors don’ t like inscriptions, while other collectors do. I personally don’t mind inscriptions because not only is it additional handwriting from that celebrity but it also adds to the authenticity. Not many autograph forgers will risk providing additional evidence of their forgery handiwork by adding an inscription. For example, for such notables as Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Bela Lugosi , JFK and others, their handwriting was exclusively unique. Hence, even if a forger’s signature is a close match the other elements, like inscriptions will be the dead giveaway.
Meanwhile what some people do is mat out the inscription during the framing process. For example, I will mat a photo of Mr Sinatra and at the bottom of the mat have a separate opening for the signature. If my client does not want the inscription showing, only the signature will appear in the autograph window. On the other hand, others will actually cut out the signature only from the autograph paper. Many dealers do this and sell it as an un-inscribed autograph. We would rather let the new owner decide if he/she wants to alter the autographed piece to accommodate the final presentation.
