What is an autograph?
From Wikipedia, an autograph is a person’s own handwriting or signature. The word autograph comes from Ancient Greek (αὐτός, autós, “self” and γράφω, gráphō, “write”), and can mean more specifically a manuscript written by the author of its content, or a celebrity’s handwritten signature.

TOM JONES Signed Pair Of Knickers & Photo – Here is something unique for your Tom Jones collection. Yes a pair of ladies briefs with a 10″ x 8″ black & white photograph, both signed by Sir Tom. The previous owner was working for British Airways back in the 1980s in the staff travel department near Heathrow Airport. Tom’s uncle was working in the engineering department in Treforest, Wales. The previous owner got chatting with a person in Treforest’s admin department and jokingly said if I manage to get the Uncle’s flight to L.A. confirmed I’d like a pair of knickers signed by Tom. Months later a courier arrived with a pair of cream-coloured silk knickers, which apparently Tom & the family had a good laugh while he signed them, round the swimming pool!! He also included a signed photo which he dedicated ‘to all the girls at staff travel British Airways’ all in black pen!
