In addition to selling celebrity autographs, Iconographs offers a selection of movie posters, photographs, and other memorabilia. Iconographs offers a lifetime certificate of authenticity, guaranteeing the legitimacy of each item it sells.

Movie memorabilia is valuable, with fans worldwide bidding to own pieces of their favorite films. Props, costumes, and vehicles used in iconic movies can bring in thousands or even millions of dollars. The three most valuable movie props ever sold are:

1. The Bond car Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger and Thunderball. With most of the iconic spy gadget props still intact, the Aston Martin DB5 sold at auction for $4.1 million in 2010.

2. The car Elvis Presley drove in Spinout. In the 1966 film, Elvis drove a beautiful 1929 Duesenberg Model J Dual Cowl Phaeton. One of only two of its kind, the vintage car sold for $1.2 million in 2011.

3. Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The legendary floor-length dress, designed by Hubert de Givenchy, was auctioned off for charity in 2006. The proceeds totaled $923,187 and were given to City of Joy Aid.

Iconographs offers authentic celebrity autographs online at affordable prices. Iconographs employs more in-person autograph collectors than any other company. Its collectors seek out celebrities in New York, Los Angeles, and across the nation to create a diverse and expansive online catalogue.

When he passed away in 2012, Jack Kuster owned the world’s largest collection of original autographs. He had managed to obtain more than 33,000 signatures from celebrities. The collector also had over 17,000 celebrity photos that had not been seen by the public.

Jack Kuster acquired his first celebrity autograph at the age of 14, when he approached film star Carmen Miranda. She was visiting Rochester, New York, in support of a World War II bond rally.

This began a collection that became an obsession for Kuster. He travelled the world to personally collect autographs from thousands of stars. Kuster visited 19 different countries to complete his quest, sometimes making a trip for a single autograph.

The collection was bequeathed to Juan Carlos Saucedo-Campos, a Mexican film star who became a lifelong friend of Kuster’s after giving him an autograph in 1993.

Iconographs is a trusted online source for celebrity autographs and movie memorabilia. Iconographs collects and sells only the best authentic autographs, which it guarantees for life.

According to many autograph collectors, the most sought-after autograph is that of astronaut Neil Armstrong of Apollo 11 fame.

After learning that his barber had been selling his hair trimmings for thousands of dollars, Neil Armstrong completely stopped signing autographs. He does not sign autographs at charity events, does not respond to letters from fans requesting them, and does not sell them for profit like crewmate Buzz Aldrin.

Neil Armstrong has even refused to sign autographs for Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and other notable people. This reluctance to furnish autographs has made the prices of existing signatures skyrocket. People even sell and collect the astronaut’s old checks and credit card receipts. A check he wrote on the morning of the Apollo 11 liftoff sold for more than $27,000.
