There's not enough action on this forum. So if you don't have a question or new information to pass on....at least post an autograph or two from your collection. Include the story of how you obtained it if you like.

I'll start with these....

Cecil Stoughton....official White House photographer for JFK.


Harper Lee, Gregory Peck, Robert Duvall, Mary Badham, Phillip Alford, and Brock Peters. Five of the major characters of the movie version of the classic "To Kill A Mockingbird". Also signed by the author Harper Lee. I obtained all of these through the mail.

    I met Hubert Humphrey back in the mid-60's and he gave me TWO passes to the Vice President's Gallery The local paper was on the scene documenting HHH's visit and they printed a picture of HHH and Muriel with your's truly standing in the background clutching the passes in my sweaty little hands.

  • Lots of history in all those autographs, I was looking through my baseball stuff after finding this ball
    but now I will need to dig through more stuff to find my autographs. this one I bought for cheap because
    they could not identify it, I've been looking at it and cant figure it out, but that's the fun of sports memorabilia.

    I made this it's own post, but when I saw this thread I thought it fit here as well. This is one of my very few autographs. Marvelous Marvin Hagler Champ.
    When I was probably 8 or 9 my best friend right up the street from my house had a mother who worked at a restaurant Marvin would eat at sometimes. She got this for me as a birthday present.

    He was and still is my favorite boxer. My Dad had died a few years before that, but I remember watching and talking some boxing with my Dad and I'm sure that's how I became a Hagler fan.

    Nice sig to have - I don't have one. Missed him somehow when I was starting with WWII figures.

    I hate those PSA/DNA stickers - personally I won't buy anything with that. It is inexcusable that they put a sticker on an item, much less on the front.

    Bettie Page was strictly a 1950's personality. She had no celebrity connection with WWII.

    No where did I say she was from WW2. I said I have WW2 pilots AND celebs. I should have said celebs and WW2 pilots.

    I haven't got much but I did get this at Disneyland around 1958. Drawn and signed by Roy Williams. He had a small table set up on a side alley on Main Street. I was pretty young but I always remembered getting it because he was on the original Mickey Mouse Club TV show.

    Here is a 1809 (30 Jul) King Joseph Napoleon Bonaparte (King of Sicily) letter, to a unknown general thanking him for having shown interest in his crowning as King in Naples which has been very favorable to him and he further sends him his thanks and deep appreciation. It seems to show a close relationship between the two as the letter seems friendly rather than official.

    Napoleon gave his brother joseph the position of King In Naples for two years, then he became King of Spain in 1808 following the invasion of Spain.

    Catherine Deneuve is one of my favorite French actresses, I remember her mostly for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Last Metro. 20 years ago I wrote to her all the way to France for her autograph and here is the photo I got back.

  • ernie11ernie11 Posts: 984 ✭✭✭

    One of my most obscure baseball autographs is this very shaky signature of Chester C. Hoff I received when I wrote to him in the summer of 1998. Hoff was a left-handed pitcher who made his major league debut 87 years earlier, on September 6, 1911. Pitching against the Detroit Tigers, he struck out the first batter he faced, the great Ty Cobb. In later years, Hoff recalled this as the highlight of his career.

    Hoff only pitched in 23 games. His major distinction is that he was the longest-lived person to have ever played in Major League Baseball. He died just 3 months after this autograph was signed, at the age of >> 107 <<. So...not so bad a signature after all. For myself, if I lived to be 107, I'd be lucky to remember my name, much less write it!

    Awesome autographs! I too have been busy with the coin forum (my primary collection interest) and did not notice this section. I do dabble a bit with autographs though and these are my favorites. I acquired each item separately and had them framed as single pieces.

    Two Titanic survivors Milvinia Dean and Edwina Mackenzie, a newspaper from shortly before the accident, and a copy of the picture of the ship after it had the name painted on the stern (most pictures of the Titanic were taken before the name was painted on).

    Apollo 11 Crew

    Apollo 13 Crew. I was particularly pleased to have found a handwritten letter from Jack Swigert.

    Mundane compared to some of those posted but here are two that I have. The first is Liberace. This was obtained when eating at the Flamingo Hotel and he was there for a meal. Gracious to sign. Second is Mr. Bob Hope. This was my neighbors and I obtained it after he passed. He was a WWII vet that was wounded in the Pacific and recovering in Hawaii before being sent home. Mr. Hope was kind enough to sign this in the hospital when he visited the "boys".

  • you have a Bob Hope signature and I have his wife's signature that my grandfather had signed in WWII. She simply signed it,"Delores". I also have about 60 others that he had gotten signed during his time in the navy with the "Fighting CeeBees. Hattie McDaniel, Clara Blandick, Hedy Lamarr, Basil Rathbone, Esther Williams, Dan Seymour, Mary Pickford, Vera Lewis, Martha O'Driscoll, Alan Ladd, Charles Coburn, Roddy McDowall, Trudy Marshall, Mrs Lon Chaney Jr, Jane Cooper, Phil Silvers, Teddy Lynch, Edmund Lowe, Eleanor Boardman, David Hoffman, Gene Lockhart, Dana Andrews, Marjorie wood, Helen Broderick, Harry Gillette, and many others. I have gotten quite an education studying these and trying to put a face to the name. And in some cases just trying to figure out the name itself was a chore.
