Common famous autographed items that may be valuable include letters with historical content or correspondence of a routine nature. Checks, contracts or presidential land grants are also of interest to many dealers. Manuscripts, such as drafts of literary or musical works, may warrant an appraisal. Signed photographs and books with inscriptions by authors can be notable collector?s pieces. Consult a reputable dealer specializing in famous autographs for an accurate and reliable appraisal.
