Autographs are serious business, as the right name on the right document can fetch thousands or even millions of dollars. The most valuable autographs seem to be those that belong to celebrities and significant historical figures who are no longer with us. However, there are plenty of living autographs that can bring in a healthy sum of money. Here is a look at some of the most valuable living autographs.
A three-time world champion, Muhammad Ali is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time—and the value of his autograph is certainly indicative of that. Muhammad Ali autographs can fetch between $1,500 and $3,000, and his earlier signings as Cassius Clay are even more valuable.
Queen Elizabeth II
Family Christmas cards and the occasional personal letter are virtually all the Queen of England signs in terms of correspondence, so her autograph is incredibly rare. An autograph from Queen Elizabeth II can go for around $2,500 on the market.
The former Beatles front man is one of the richest musicians in the world, and his autograph can help you pocket some additional cash, too. Signed lyrics or some other piece of Beatles memorabilia can sell for a couple thousand dollars or more on the market.
Tiger Woods is a living legend, and considered by many to be one of the greatest figures in the history of golf. Because the world’s number one golfer rarely signs autographs, his autographs can be worth $2,500 to $3,000 dollars.
