Best and Worst Celebrity Autograph Signers

Offering authentic signatures from top celebrities and public figures, The Autograph Auction takes pride in its full selection of auction items designed to meet any budget. The Autograph Auction team procures pieces from the current hot names in Hollywood and professional sports, including those that are notoriously hard to collect.

An Autograph Magazine recent survey of the signing habits of celebrities identified those individuals with the most and least fan-friendly signing habits. Topping the “worst signer” list are Hollywood stars such as Will Ferrell, Cameron Diaz, Joaquin Phoenix, and Tobey Maguire. NBA legend Bill Russell, who is now active in the civil rights sphere, is perhaps the most difficult person to convince to sign, with stories circulating that he refused a former teammate’s request for his signature. Russell does, however, occasionally sign for charity causes. On the other end of the spectrum, Hollywood celebrities Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, Clint Eastwood, and George Clooney are known for their willingness to meet fans and provide signatures. For investment-focused collectors, unwillingness to sign can be a positive trait, with difficult-to-procure autographs fetching a significant premium.
