David Copperfield - Signed Photo with COA

Derren Brown - Signed Photo with COA

I bought this autographed photo on e-Bay of Derren Brown in late January 2021.

A real bargain that comes with a certificate of authenticity.

A real bargain as no one else was bidding so no competition.  Many of these autographs start from £35 and this was a lot less.

The signature itself is slightly faded, hence the lower price.  But still a good item to have in my collection.

Maybe when I get to see Derren perform live, I maybe able to order a signed item.  Now that would be good.

Purchased:  January 2021

This is a really nice promo card that advertises Elliot Bibby with his website contacts.

I received this as a surprise and had a nice message from Elliot.

A great addition to my collection.

I have been lucky to watch Elliot on Zoom for a couple or shows and interview him.  Hopefully I will get to see him perform live at some point.

Geoffrey Durham - Signed Photo Card

95% of my autographs are sourced wither directly from artists or have come with signed Certificate of Authenticity.

This was an e-bay purchase which looks authentic though I cannot be 100% sure.  Was a low price so bought it.

It looks authenticate on examination and cant think why anyone would want to fake as cost was low.  Fingers crossed!

Received/Purchase :  April 2021

John Archer - Signed Photo Card

Having worked with John on an interview for this site, the opportunity to gain a signed photo was always going to be high on the agenda.

This was a fantastic surprise when I received this signed photo from John, inscribed "Happy Birthday Martin".

The picture is a really decent size and would be ideal to hang up framed in my office.  

A great addition to my collection.

Mandy Muden - Signed Photo Card

Being a fan of Mandy Muden, I had hoped to get a signed autograph/picture at some point.

This was a complete surprise and arrived with a card from Mandy which was unexpected in March 2021

Little did I know that my wife had contacted Mandy and had arranged.  

What is particularly good about this photo is that the card is an older photo that is probably quite rare.  A 90's promo picture.

Thank you Mandy.  My favourite collectable signed photo that is framed and in my office.

Mark Shortland - Signed Note

When purchasing some cards and original artwork from Mark, I received a nice note from him on the card used to protect the artwork.

 

It protected artwork for "Woody from Toy Story".  A fabulous art piece that was used in the 53 Films deck of cards.

The note thanks me for a show review that I had recently carried out and that Mark hopes that I enjoy the actual painting.

Paul Zerdin - Signed Picture with COA

A nice photo with signed picture of Paul Zerdin with a COA.

Just a shame that as a dark photo, it has been signed in black pen.

I have seen Paul perform at Corby in 2019.  I wish that I had now queued for his autograph but this is the next best thing.  

Bought via e-Bay.
