Autograph Clubs - The One Most Recommended
If you are either a newcomer to the hobby of autographs, a seasoned collector or autograph dealer, it is highly recommended you associate yourself with a respected autograph organization that can help you along the educational highway.
After more than 50 years in the hobby, the one I most recommend is the AdA1986.de based in Germany. At this time this autograph organization has its largest membership from the United States and other countries outside of Germany.
This group is free of politics and corruption. It does what it says. It has a fabulous meeting of collectors and dealers each year in a different German city. Dealers exhibit for sale autographs in all price ranges covering all fields of collecting. Not a year has passed in meetings that I have attended that I didn’t bring back an autograph treasure or two.
The exchange of ideas at these meetings is second to none. The comradeship is exceptional. Many attendees and board members speak English.
This club is extremely well organized. Meetings are run once a year, everyone is welcome. The club magazine “Autographen-sammler is published four times a year, never missing an issue. It is full magazine size, 80 pages in length with covers in color. Each issue contains approximately 45 articles, heavily illustrated, most educational in all fields of collecting. Dealer ads, collectors ads, celebrity addresses you will find no where else Every member is welcome to submit an article.
Membership is only $38.00 per year. Payable to Paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org
Become a proud member of the AdA1986.de and take notice of the growing number of dealers worldwide who display the club logo.
