A standing O goes to Matt Raymond, super blogger and collector supreme at his site Autograph University.
Check out his six recent honorary degrees awarded to noted signers, as chosen by his readers.
Virgil Trucks received a posthumous degree. His daughter Carolyn Beckwith wrote me, telling how proud her dad would be.
Matt’s awards are a great message for all of us. A thank-you note can be just as moving for some retiree who’s been spending hours each month trying to please strangers. In fact, it’s a way to convince a signer’s FAMILY that the effort is important.
If you love an autograph you’ve gotten, don’t just tell other collectors. Write the signer. Tell them why they matter.
If we keep doing that, we, as collectors, will keep mattering, too.
