I prefer a personalization, but would still be grateful to receive an autograph even without one. After all, celebrities do not owe me anything and whether they personalize an autograph or not, there is still time taken out of their day that they used to sign for me.

Honestly, I don't prefer personalization. I have watched a lot of TV shows and the autograph appraisers say that once you have someone personalize an autograph, the value is monetary value is GONE.

Sure I wouldn't sell most of my autographs, as I have some really cool autographs from weirdly famous people, but I am thinking for down the line if my children or grandkids wanna sell my collection when I'm gone.

Anyway, long story short I usually leave the personalization up to the celeb. For instance, President George W. Bush made his pre-printed autograph out to me on the computer, while President Clinton sent me a personalized message. Then meanwhile people like Phil Collins and the athletes I have met never personalize.

So just leave it up to the celeb. especially if you meet them in-person getting the autograph. Some celebs get ticked off when you tell them what to do with an autograph.

I always appreciate personalized photos. I think they're much cooler, in my opinion.
