Signed Photos Are Easy to Get, Store, Ship

8X10 signed photos are arguably the most collected signed items. They can provide an attractive display when framed and matted, and are also flat and lightweight enough to store or transport easily.

A main reason for the high-volume of photographs being bought and sold is their low cost compared to other collectibles such as jerseys, helmets, or equipment. Unsigned 8X10 photographs can be purchased for $5 or less and with a good digital camera, you can even take your own pictures if you’re sitting close enough in a game and print them for significantly less.

Photographs obviously come in a variety of sizes and while the most popular is an 8X10 inch size, 11X14 and 16X20 sizes are also extremely popular when it comes to framing. Fans can also collect smaller sizes. 5X7 and even index card size photos are popular at public autograph signings when retail stores have an athlete make promotional appearances.

Whether you're collecting, MLB, NFL, NHL or NBA signed photos, it's important to make sure you wind up with a quality signature that will hold up over time.

Because most photographs are glossy, the best option to obtain a signature is usually a Sharpie marker. Blue, black, gold, or silver are usually the most popular colors, but one should be used to contrast the colors in the photograph. For example, if a photograph with a dark background is being signed, a gold or silver marker is probably preferred. If the photograph is set against a light background with a player wearing a white or light-colored jersey, a black or blue marker is probably best.

Fans can have their NBA, NHL, NFL or MLB pictures signed in a variety of places. A good place to have an athlete sign your photograph is before or after a game, in team hotels, or at public autograph signings. Some players will also sign through the mail if you include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

If getting an autograph in person or via mail is unrealistic, plenty of options are available. Many card shops or malls sell autographed photos. Teams also may offer autographs on their company website or store at the park or stadium.

Other online sources for signed photos such as eBay auctions or online stores are available as well. Authenticity is always a concern when not getting the item signed in person and many collectors find it best to deal with companies that only sell items from private or public signings such as Mounted Memories.  You can find those listings here on Authentic Autographed Sports.

When it comes to storage or displaying autographed photos, framing can be a costly item - especially when it comes to displaying large collections of hundreds of items. Finding enough space to hang a large amount of photos can also be an issue. But because photos are thin and lightweight, there are many storage options available. Collectors can choose to store photos in rigid 8X10 toploaders, which are plastic and can protect the photos from staining, creases, or other damage. Signed photos can also be kept in clear plastic sleeves in three-ring binders, which allows them to be viewed like a photo album.
