Urgent Hello from a new forum member...

Post by ZSProPhotography on Sun Nov 24, 2013 3:32 pm

Hello Everyone,

I have been encouraged over and over by my friend and the founder of SPAAM [coachk28] to establish a profile on this forum.  It's only taken about 5 months, but here we go:

Although I most certainly can be described as an autograph collector, I am actually a sports photographer who has worked with numerous pro athletes since 1990.  I have mostly worked with NBA, NFL, MLB and NPF (fastpitch softball) All Stars and HOF'ers, but also have shot some NASCAR and Hockey events.  

My most notable photo experience to date would have to include a 12-year span where I photographed Michael Jordan at his summer basketball camps (1990-2001).  I was more recently named LeBron James' official photographer for his Kings Academy which began in 2006 (Akron, OH) and have been shooting his camps ever since (even those held in San Diego, CA).  Along the way, I have received many, many autographs from the pro friends/clients that I have had the pleasure to work with these past 20+ years.  

Yes, I occasionally purchase autographed items - especially if its an individual that I likely will never have the option of working with and that I really look up to (such as Albert Einstein), but a vast number of my autographs were simply provided to me as part of the "fringe benefits" of working with these athletes.  

I have rarely ever sold any of my autographs...instead often giving duplicates (when I have multiples of the same thing) to family members, good friends and relatives for Christmas or birthdays, etc.  I am not opposed to selling off some of the multiples that I have, but thankfully I do not need to rely on such sales as a source of income.  

I am also open to the concept of trading items if there is something that catches my eye - or interest.  One thing I cannot stand - and will NOT be a part of - is the intentional sale of unauthentic signed items for personal profit.  I would hope that all of you can agree with me on that.    

Well, that is enough about me for now.  Hopefully I will get to know some of you and have some fun on this forum.  

Best Always,
Zack.

Urgent Collector from Australia

Post by nickthequick31 on Thu Jan 02, 2014 6:54 am

Hi all,

As the title suggests I live in Australia. I'm new to the hobby, and have a bunch of stuff to learn and find out about, I really hope this forum can help me.

Name: Brad Davidson
Age: 32
Single/Married: Married
Residence: Adelaide, Australia
Occupation: Mailman
Kids: 1 due in 2 months!
Pets: Goldfish
Collecting interest: NBA and NFL items
Looking For: information, help and just love seeing peoples collections.

Living in Australia is obviously a hurdle, I hope to find out the best ways to obtain auto's without getting them personally. I want to learn how to avoid fake auto's, how signings work, display methods you name it.

I have a few pieces in my collection, I also taught myself to frame basketball jersey's. I'm not a professional but I am happy with my work, I have a signed Cris Carter Vikings jersey to try and frame which may be difficult being a football jersey.

I will post some photo's of my collection in the near future, although I do not have heaps of stuff. I'm also a large collector of old games on DVD ect, mainly Basketball with a bit of Football stuff also.

My favorite athletes are Nick Van Exel, Randall Cunningham, Kyrie Irving, Michael Jordan and many more.

Collecting interest: I mainly limit my collection to autographs of former University of Kentucky basketball and football players and college basketball stars.
Looking For: Help finding images as well as info on how to best display and preserve my collection. I started getting into IP graphing about a year and a half ago and I think I've done well, and I've completed a few group images that I can't wait to get framed.
