Collecting Links

Other Autograph Sites

PSA AutographFacts - Featuring examples of autographs for easy comparisons; useful when looking to buy or trade.

TTMCast - Jeff Baker's podcast on all things autographs, specifically geared toward the TTM side of the hobby.

SCN: SportsCollectors.net - The best source for autograph addresses and organization; well worth the $15 a year. I'm on the forums as DFWGrapher.

SCF: SportsCardForum - The best free source for autograph addresses. I'm a moderator here, you can find me under the name *censored*.

The Bench - Not sure how active it is anymore, but once an excellent trading forum; I'm HockeyBrawler on here.

The Trove Sports Den - Excellent source for some private signings. I've gone through Adam twice and he was on top of everything very well and keeps prices affordable.

Crave The Auto - A list of autograph signings, all over the country and in many different areas of collecting.

SASE Sports Sigs - Hopefully this small community stays active, but with its founder's 2021 death, we'll see. I haven't been active on their forum at all.

Football Autograph Encyclopedia - All sorts of scans of football autographs (and not just NFL either!)

TTM Hockey Autos - A simple forum for all things related to hockey autographs. I'm DFWGrapher here.

Hockey TTM Graphs - Another simple forum for all things related to hockey autographs. I'm DFWGrapher here too.

StarTiger - Solid (though pricey) site for addresses. Not just sports, but celebrities too.

Blowout Forums - Mostly dedicated to cards, but also has a decent section on autographs and TTMing. I'm DFWGrapher here.

OzCardTrader - An Australian forum dedicated to cards of all kinds-- not just AFL! I'm DFWGrapher here as well.

Puckhound's Blogs - Ron Saar and I were both Boston-area hockey graphers in the early 2000s. He even name-dropped me in a Beckett article ten-ish years ago when he was their writer on hockey autographs (issue #210, maybe?). He died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2016 while watching his son play hockey.

Dave Mitchner - Dave is a fellow autograph collector who has a great site for his collection in a Wiki-style setup. It's still in progress but quite well done so far: if I had the time and patience, I'd do the same.

Pacific Soccer Autograph Project - My blog on everything related to my attempts at getting the 1987/88 through 1992/93 Pacific indoor soccer sets signed.
