Collecting Athlete Autographs

"That one little piece of paper – at that moment it was special. The fan and the athlete came together in a special way. "
– Dodger first baseman Steve Garvey

Athlete autographs or signatures are very collectible. An athlete signature on it own can be worth something, get the athlete to sign another collectible item and its value shoots up.

It's not all about making money. For a young fan, there is no better feeling than getting an autograph from one of their favorite athletes.
