In a world that celebrates movies stars and A-listers, a market for their memorabilia has grown as well. With celebrities from the sports, political, and entertainment world, their signatures compete for the dollars of collectors from around the world. Of course, out of appreciation of past legends, the signatures of celebrities who’ve passed away command the highest prices but some current celebrities have their own clout as well.
Madonna Lives in a Material World
She has made hit music for decades and is still a powerhouse in today’s world of music. Her autograph is worth $1,629 and continues to grow in value every year.
Starr of the Show
Ringo Starr of the Beatles has a signature that sells for $750, which is the least in demand of all four band members. Still it’s considerable for a musician who no longer makes new chart-topping music.
Muhammad Ali Is a Permanent Icon
His peak was in the 60s, but the impact he made on the world has not faded. His autograph commands $2,456 from his fans so it’s not hard to believe that a self-penned letter written during his stay at Fort Dix August 1, 1960 was sold to a collector for over $17,000.
Queen Elizabeth II
The Queen of England’s autograph is valued at $2,456. As a public figure in England and to the rest of the globe, it may seem that she’s involved in various promotional material. Interestingly, her autograph is not easy to come by, and in fact her signature can only usually be found on family Christmas cards.
The Most Visible Man in Golf
Tiger Woods rarely agrees to fan requests for autographs, but when he does, they sell for $2,625. There are many accomplished athletes, but Tiger tops the list as the only billionaire in the world who earned his fortune through sports and sports related contracts.
Crooner from the Past
Bob Dylan was able to stay relevant in the ever changing music industry. His fans prove their loyalty as his autograph comes in at $1,275.
The Other Living Beatle
Paul McCartney’s autograph is still in demand as he was able to sustain his popularity over the years. His signature can be purchased for $3,275.
Skipping a generation, the son of the beloved Princess Diana also rarely gives away his signature, in keeping with tradition. His autograph can be collected at $3,275.
