Got a great deal ( we are talking peanuts ) on this Alec Guinness photo which helped me to obtain the vintage 1980,s Ford and earlier Sebastian shaw. Probably my best year ever with autographs.

Nice autos bud. However, I'm bittersweet about the R2s - there is only one R2 and he is up there in the sky now.

I know what your saying Lee. Kenny was a legend. Such a shame we've lost him and Carrie.

Got this a while ago. Alex Mcrindle (General Dodonna) signed photo. Less than 10 of his sigs are known to exist so this is a major buy. Many of the ones known are sigsmon pieces of paper etc and not many photos around.

Can I ask why you get multiples of each actor? I army build some vintage figures (Han, Rebel Soldier and Rebel Commando) and gather up odd variants across all the vintage line, but for some reason I find this a bit odd. Not a criticism, just a curiosity really. I do seem to take an age when attending signings choosing the right image per actor, so I suppose that is stopped by getting them all...

Also, with this volume, how are you storing them? I use Secol acid free filing boxes and Secol polyester archival sleeves (all used at the National Archive, so fit for documents from the 16th century, so) safe for autographs... but they are not only IMO expensive, but also quite space hungry... you must have a very cool library!

Steve,

Some collectors collect multiple autographs like this. I have 13 james Earl Jones, 9 Jeremy Bulloch and so on. As some carded figures are desirable on certain cardbacks, autographs are desireable on some photos / images :D The autograph scene has gone mental in the past few years :) How we all could wish we could go back to the early 80's and get Shaw to sign an Anakin photo or anything to do with ROTJ. Only 2-3 pieces are known on Star Wars related images for him, and there is no concrete proof of that in many ways.

BTW, I am still keeping my eye out for you :)
