Have you ever sold an autographed copy of something?

I was just saw an ad about Garth Brooks on the top of the page where it lists ebay ads. This got me to thinking about people and why they would sell an autographed copy of anything. So I would like to ask if you have ever sold an autographed copy of anything because you didn't like the celebrity anymore? Would you sell it because you didn't like the celebrity anymore. This could be because you just didn't like their music, comedy or acting skills, or it could be because of something they have done to warrant your dislike? My fiance and I recently obtained an autograph from Kevin Sharp, and I don't believe i'll ever not like him, but even if I did I would never sell his autograph. The experience meant alot, and even if it didn't, just the thought of getting his autograph would never make me sell it, even if I did dislike him.

I have never sold the autograph copy of something,and to this day the only autograph I have ever gotten was when we got Kevin Sharps,which we got him to sign a Relay For Life brochure thing,and I would never sell that,and I think depending on the celebrity I might sell the autograph if I do not like them anymore,but most likely I would still keep it as a memento,because just the thought of getting an autograph of someone famous like Kevin Sharp makes me want to keep them just so we can show them to our children one day whenever we have children,I love you.

There are some people who sell celebrity autographs for a living, chances are that's what the person on ebay does. Also sometimes people with big autograph collections start selling some off when they either get too many and don't have room for them all (this can happen with any kind of collectible), or when they just need money. I have so few autographs I probably wouldn't sell any, but some people have TONS of autographs, sometimes a lot more than one from the same celebrity.

I can understand if you have one to many from the same celebrity, especially if it happens to be the same picture that was autographed. I know some places have things that they sign, like pictures of themselves, so of course if you've already gotten his autograph chances are you'll get the same picture. Like I said before, and to this I hold fast, to each their own. I do understand if money is tight, and things can call for drastic measures, I would hope I'd never need to sell an autograph. Those who do sell them for a living must be making a lot of money! I appreciate your response to me!

I did sell a couple of signed programs of an artist here in Australia, he passed away some years ago and I was rather surprised in the interest I got for them, you can get a fair bit if they are popular people.

I suppose to each their own, I don't think I would no matter how popular the artist is or was. Those can become valuable, yes, and I suppose that is why you sold them. I appreciate your response to me.

I have several autographed items from the same people and I've contemplated selling some of the more less meaningful items simply because they'd be a way to make a quick buck knowing how much people are willing to pay for autographs. However I haven't sold any of those things just because it's hard for me to get rid of.

I appreciate your response but must say that I am a bit confused, are they hard to get rid because they are momentums or because they would be hard to sell for you?

They're special to me because they are autographs from a band that I've pretty much followed for most of my life so they do mean something to me which makes them harder for me to get rid of. I may decide to sell some of them one day, but that's not today.

Oh I appreciate the clarification, I was thinking you meant something like that. I can understand what you mean though, and I know that if it was a band I followed for a while I wouldn't want to get rid of them!
