Autograph Book from the White House Sells for $25,300

Auctions are a wonderful place for buyers to find unusual collectibles and items autographed by actors, musicians, sports professionals, and other public figures. The Autograph Auction of Fair Lawn, New Jersey, maintains a broad range of exciting collectibles, including autographed memorabilia from some of today’s most popular entertainers. Every item available from The Autograph Auction is verified by a team member who personally witnessed the signature.

Auctions add an additional element of excitement to the collectors’ hobby, as bids may come in lower than expected, or soar to new heights. A recent antiques auction in Canada featured a book of autographs that was once owned by a man who served as a guard at the door of the White House in Washington, DC, from 1869 to 1909. The book contained signatures from historical figures such as Buffalo Bill, Winston Churchill, and Mark Twain. At $25,300, the final bid was $15,300 more than the estimated sales price of $10,000.
