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.
Here at eil.com & 991.com we pride ourselves on being able to find the finest signed collectables available. From Iron Maiden to John Lennon, Elvis Costello, Freddie Mercury and Madonna, we have an amazing selection of 100% fully authenticated signed items, all of which come complete with a certificate of authenticity.
We have something for everyone, please check our specialist Autograph collectors store.
TAKE THAT Promises (Fully Autographed 1991 UK 7″ single, also including Do What You Like. The hype-stickered glossy picture sleeve has been dedicated to Sammy & Joanne, signed by Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald in a black marker (with some smudges) or ball point pen).
VARIOUS Liza’s Tribute To Sammy (Wonderful 1992 UK A4 sheet of headed notepaper produced especially for the tribute concert for Sammy Davis Jr. at The Royal Albert Hall on 23rd June in the presence of H.R.H. The Princess Of Wales. This amazing sheet of notepaper has been clearly autographed by the Artists appearing, including Joan Collins, Lorna Luft, Tom Jones, Jerry Lewis, Cliff Richard, Charles Aznavour, Billy Stricht, Lionel Blair, Christopher Biggins and the star of the show, Liza Minnelli herself. This notepaper was produced only for this event and was never available to non-VIPs at the event, so is rare enough on its own. To have one with so many autographs, nice and ready for framing, a real once in a lifetime opportunity!).
SAXON The Eagle Has Landed (Fully Autographed Official 1982 UK 20 page 13″ x 9½” concert programme featuring lots of ‘live’ photographs and information, with text by Brian Harrigan, also has two pages for the support act Cheetah. This example remains in a fantastic condition, with light wear & signs of age, and has been signed by Biff Byford, Graham Oliver, Nigel Glockler, Steve Dawson and Paul Quinn in a blue or black marker pen across the front. Looks fantastic and ideal for framing!).
SHED SEVEN Dolphin (Autographed 1994 UK limited edition 7″ single pressed on Purple Vinyl, housed in a hype stickered picture sleeve which has been fully signed by Rick Witter, Paul Banks, TomGladwin and Alan Leach in black felt pen across the front.
