My last post was about some new products commemorating World War II, and the soldiers who fought in it. After hearing about this product, I was somewhat inspired to go digging through my box of TTM autos, and try my hand at some custom cut autographs.
Several years ago, I wrote to many of the men whose stories were featured in the excellent HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers”. I received many replies, and have a nice collection of signed index cards, which are among my most treasured. Often they took the time to respond to my questions, and were unfailingly polite. One note, which is a bit of a sad commentary on how this hobby sometimes goes – almost all of them explicitly asked me not to sell the autographs I received. I have been more than happy to comply with this request.
I have been thinking that I would like to come up with some type of ‘set’ design, and display these cuts somehow. In that vein, I am looking for feedback on the design below. Obviously, not all my signatures are the same size, and I actually might end up needing to make the set in 4×6 size (they all included inscriptions, which I intend to keep intact), but the basic elements are in place. If you have any tips to offer, or suggestions, please feel free to comment or shoot me an email.
