Definately no, also I would not buy a signed vintage MOC.
For modern pieces it might be a nice addition.

Of course not. Why would I want to buy or own a deliberately defaced card?

... Ooh, but my Darth Vader MOC is signed by Dave Prowse!

Well firstly, so what? But secondly, if that floats your boat then technically that's fair enough, as anyone is entitled to do whatever they like to their own property, providing it's legal. Just don't expect the rest of us to be any more accepting or pleased about it than we would be if you'd opened the damn thing.

I really don't understand the desire to get vintage MOCs signed by anyone. Would you be quite so pleased if your Darth Vader was signed by Chris Packham? Or would you regard that as permanently vandalising a diminishing finite global stock of vintage MOCs? If so, how is it any different if Dave 'I'll sign anything for £20' Prowse has scribbled on it? :roll:

You seem to think I am taking issue with you and or the question. I am of course not doing anything of the sort. You asked the Forum a question, I gave my personal answer, which on this occasion happens to be one I feel strongly about, since for me the answer seems very obvious indeed. However, I speak only for myself. Others will have their own opinions and answers which may not necessarily be the same as mine. They're entitled to theirs, just as you are to yours, and I am absolutely fine with that. No chilling required ;-)

What is the reason for asking the question? Are you trying to find out if it will increase in value so you can sell it at a profit? Or is it for your own display?
Reading the replies I don't believe it's going to increase in value very much but only end up ruining the card on another moc. If it's for your own display then I think only you can answer the question on what you prefer yourself.

If you really want to get a moc autographed then you have two options.

1. Get a modern figure and get him to sign that.

2. Get a graded moc and let him sign the case.
