Autograph Collecting

Recommended Posts

I have  changed the title so that the thread will not be just about Table Tennis but about all sports ;)

Hi, I talked to admin Kamil, I will create the autograph collecting in every sport. I think this might be better organised. In order of this, I will try to bring more people here and we can share everything about sport events of different sports and where we can catch athletes to ask for autograph. If only 1 topic, it might get messy. I think, if it is for every sport, everybody will become well oriented in all. What do you think?

Honestly I think that having a thread for autograph collecting for each of the 44 summer sports + 15 winter sports would be a bit too much :p But we can start with a single thread and then should the interest get higher we can start splitting threads according to the sports.

That is actually cool point. Will do it this way. I will bring to forum more collectors who might also get involved to other topics. And we will lead this section, and will see if more sections in the future :-)

I've never been collecting autographs...

but I used to have 1 of which I was very proud...the legend himself, the mastermind and coach of the greatest Hockey machine ever seen on the ice, the real Red Army and the Soviet Union of the late Seventies/early Eighties: the Soviet Army Colonel Viktor Tikhonov

it was taken at the 1994 World Championships in Milan (during an interval of the SWE vs ITA quarterfinal match), but unfortunately it's gone lost in the mess of my house and I don't have it anymore...:cry::facepalm:

yes, but I know for sure that the autograph was thrown away when we did some heavy renovation works (basically now we only have the same walls as 20 years ago)...:cry::facepalm:

I can try some digging in my extras, because I have a feeling I should have one extra piece. I will let you know next week:-)

I've never been collecting really, but during the 2014 volleyball world championships I came across Brazilians chillin' at the café. So I accidentely got autographs from Bruno Rezende, Leandro Vissotto, Mauricio Borges Silva and Ricardo Lucarelli. :BRA :cheer:

But the fun of autographs is having those that you collected yourself, as some sort of 'proof' of meeting someone....there's no emotional value in an autograph someone else got and you just bought or something :p (at least for me)
