One of the most popular and challenging genres of autograph collecting is that of Presidential and historical figures. It is a fascinating, under-publicized and potentially very lucrative area of collecting. Most people aren't aware that you can own original autographed items from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Robert E. Lee, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney and thousands of other famous people in all fields. These vintage autographs can give enjoyment for many years to come and they also have an excellent history of appreciation in value. Let's face it, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln aren't signing any more autographs.
