I posted my RTS in the feedback section.

I am so very frustrated for the first time in a long time since beginning to collect autographs. While Fanmail.biz and similar sites can have their good points, they are also an awesome reference for people that are not fans of an artist to get free autographs and turn around and sell them on eBay. Of course, there is no way to control who see's and uses what and for what reason. Still, I am seriously contemplating going back to not sharing addresses and successes on this site.

This situation especially since it has become so frequent among formally great signers, reminds me of trying to warn people of what a disaster it would be to vote for Trump. Pretty soon, there will be no signers left. Celebrities are tired of being used. The hobby is dying and fast due to greedy people. It is so sad for TRUE fans.

How do you (other collectors) feel about this situation and the decline of a once great hobby?


People who are no longer signing due to abuse of their generosity: (The ones I have personally experienced or seen)
Grace Slick
Angela Lansbury
Julie Andrews
Rhonda Flemming
Kim Novak
Barbara Eden
Cyndi Lauper
Leslie Caron
Diana Rigg
Pink


The list just keeps growing :(

About "private address" posts on this website. We are frequently asked what address we used after posting a private address success. We do not post these successes in order to show "what we have and you do not". We do post these successes so that other fans of the star in question, knows that a success is possible. If we can locate the contact info, anyone can. We do not share this information per the celebrities request when this is marked in place of an address.
