  • Important Notice To The Autograph Community

    Many collectors use a Post Office Box for receiving mail. Reason is, they may have a valuable autograph collection and don't want others to know where they live.  Some dealers and auction houses prefer to ship autographed items via United Parcel Service.  In the past, United Parcel Service would not ship a package to a Post Office Box, until now.

  • If You Were To Die Today...

    ...what would become of your collection? Would a family member or friend be able to gather, sort and preserve it, or offer it for sale, for a reasonable price?I thought about this recently I'm not even certain my family would know what to make of the stuff I've acquired.If they did get it together, they'd get pennies on the dollar.Even savy collectors require effort and patience to often simply break even.Not to say that that isn't true with many fields of collecting.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Just minutes before the start of the Indy 500, a few dozen racers hit the frontstretch at a considerably slower speed than the 33 cars that would follow. But they received at least as many cheers.

    Indianapolis Motor Speedway reached out to the Boston Athletic Association, inviting people who were unable to finish the Boston Marathon because of the bombing last month. Non-finishers in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Illinois, 35 in all, came to IMS to run a ceremonial half-mile…
