Could be. A known example looks like this:

There are similarities, and if it was hurried...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

AG, Maybe you can convert this topic into the overall "Autographs" thread. I don't want to make a new one when this is here and is such a specific thing.

So on topic:
I have a few autographs. Mostly unimportant ones that I got just because I happened to be in the same place as someone. An example would be this charity event I volunteered at about 4 years ago, there was a former Miami Dolphin and a former NY Yankee there. (I knew they'd be there so put on a Red Sox shirt I happened to have a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-paul-11) I'm not much of a sports guy, too much into music, but I still got their autographs (and a funny comment on my shirt from the Yank!) anyway.

The one I consider the most important in my collection (if you could call it that!) would be Richie Sambora's, the guitarist of Bon Jovi.
Two years ago he released his third solo album Aftermath Of The Lowdown, good album, and if you were the first of a certain number to pre-order it you got an extra, autographed, booklet insert!

(Don't really know where my autographs are right now... Should probably look for those...)

I'm planning on writing Pattie and Klaus as soon as I move, so I'll actually get anything they may send back. I've read Pattie answers mail (one unconfirmed source though so I hope it's true). Don't know about Klaus but why not write anyway?
I'm just going to be realistic and skip Paul, and we all know that Ringo has warned us with Peace and Love!

So who else has any good autographs? We know Joe's got GM and Mark Lewisohn.

I have Paul McCartney, Pete Best, George Martin. I have a few non-Beatles autographs from my youth, mainly Britpop (Super Furry Animals, Supergrass, Stone Roses, probably loads of others somewhere). I don't think I'd bother asking for one nowadays, unless it was Beatle-related. Famous people's signatures don't really interest me per se - I'd rather have the memory of a good experience of meeting them. Though if David Bowie walked by I'd probably let out a small yelp and pray that I had a pen on me.

You got me wondering. According to this Wiki article, collecting autographs as a hobby started with sports in the 1920s. The article doesn't cite any sources, so take it with a grain of salt. Hard to imagine it wasn't in practice before that though.

Incidentally, it lists John's murder as being one of the events leading to the autograph collecting boom.

Thanks for the article anyway. I'll try to do a bit more research on that
