Autograph Collecting

Post by D.J » Tue Nov 11, 2014 3:02 pm

Yeah, figured this was as good a time as any to make a thread about this.

As some of you know, i've started collecting autographs again (for the first time in around 12 years). When it comes to deciding who to contact, i can often be rather random, but i do find my best chances of success are folk who can be contacted via a form on their official website, though a regular email can occasionally work too.

Here are some of my recent acquisitions, including one that arrived today...

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

Canada's PM
Image

Tony Blair
Image

Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull F1)
Image

I've also received signed pics from Michael Portillo, Ed Miliband, Noel Edmonds, and the Red Arrows.

So then, do any of you folks collect autographs? If so, who have you been able to get?

:)

If you bring your copies of the final ONM to any meetings with me, I'll gladly sign it for you

Imagine wanting a signature from the devil incarnate that is Tony Blair.

I've met a few famous people before, but never got any autographs. Never think about it at the time.

The only autograph I have that I care about, outside of my lost book of Disney ones from a childhood visit to Disneyland Paris, is Gillian Anderson's.

Would post a photo but it's currently 70 miles away.

I have some from Sci Fi conventions etc... yeah you usually have to pay a bit if you get them this way but you get to talk to the person for a bit, shake there hand etc.

Only issue is sometimes someone you used to think was really cool turns out to be a dick.

At a sci fi convention I met all of the main people from Red Dwarf and they were all really awesome friendly people... I also met David Prowse (Darth Vader) and he was a moaning sour faced old git

it kind of proves that old saying "never meet your hero''

Someone who Id love to get an autograph from is Tom Baker... but I would really really want to meet him to get it.. I guess I just want to shake his hand and go Mr Baker your a crazy bedfordshire clanger thank you so much for all smiles you have given me.

Yeah he was brilliant in Dr Who but he was also great in The Vault of Horror (tales from the crypt 2) and I deeply recommend any and everyone to read his AutoBiography Who On Earth is Tom Baker ...it made me spit coffee everywhere several times

I've seen a number of celebs doing signing sessions over the years, the most recent being David Walliams.

I was only able to get a photo on that occasion though, as i showed up just as he was leaving (didn't even realise what was going on until i spotted him getting up from the desk).

I'd never actually start collecting autographs, firstly as I've no idea how and secondly I don't particularly want a box full of signed pictures that may mean nothing to anyone when I've departed. I think the only two signatures I'd be interested in getting would be Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel, I'd have no idea how though, did you just write a letter to Red Bull asking for Daniel Ricciardos signature?

I sent them an email using an address i found here...

http://www.infiniti-redbullracing.com/a ... contact-us

I got lucky though, as they said in the letter that was sent with Dan's sig, that they are rarely able to send out signed cards due to the fact that the drivers spend so little time at the factory.

Anyhow, i generally prefer to use email wherever possible these days, as otherwise i'd only end up spending a fortune on postage.

Seems a really random thing to want Daniel Riccardio's signature.

Not really, Daniel Ricciardo's well on his way to becoming a top driver in F1, if he becomes a WDC (or even a Multi WDC) his autograph could be worth something, not that D.J would want to sell it that is!

My friend found an autograph of Tom Baker in his loft. He didn't even know he had it :D

I never thought to actually email someone famous for their autograph. It appears you've had success too! Well, here goes... "Dear Scarlett Johansson..."

Only autographs I have are from an ex Crewe Alexandra player, now non league player from like 6 years ago, and from a guy with learning difficulties called Neil Baldwin who had a BBC film made about him recently.
