    My financial status is not improving so I'm looking into selling a few other things.


    I've got a bunch of autographs saved up. Some are from the cast of the 1986 "Transformers" movie, some are from the space program.


    Would people be interested in such things? How much are autographs usually worth???

    I'm thinking that autographs are pretty variable in value. I suspect your best bet would be to check Completed Auctions on eBay for similar items.

    But you may not have any luck there. If you don't, then they're worth the highest price someone offers in an open bidding process (basically, eBay or the Junkion) that you're willing to accept.

    You'll probably have more luck with the former than the latter, especially if you have any of the deceased members like Stack or Crothers (dead people's signatures = mo' money).

    I'd certainly be interested, but which ones do you have?

    Like squirrelcar said, ebay is your best bet to price them.

    And one more that I can't quite make out; seems to be "Dale Gardner" or something along that line.

    Speaking from a sports memoribilia standpoint--which I collect--unless there's some kind of authentication or unless there's some proof that it's not a forgery people are going to be leery of something that's not direct from the factory, so to speak. However, you might try going to an autograph collection website and just ask around how much these might go for.

    That said, I would imagine the Robert Stack might go for a bit more considering:
    A.) He's dead
    B.) He's also more well-renowned since he played Eliot Ness on "The Untouchables" TV show (as well as being on "Unsolved Mysteries.")

    But again, that's just my viewpoint.

    I'd hang to Idle if you can. He's easily the most famous and more likely to appreciate in value.

    If nothing else, post 'em in the Junkion and see if you get any offers.

    And what are the autographs on? I know that would influence my interest.

    I've got the Pantera album "Far Beyond Driven" with all four band members' signatures. That's probably my most valuable autographed item. Nothing TF related though.
