I love it when the autographs are personalized to me whether it's just my name or a message with it,Beceause the celeb took time to make it out to me which shows how much they care and apperciate me and that I took time to read my letter to them and tell them how much i apperciate them, but if it's not personalized but authentic i still like it because they get so much fanmail it;s very hard to persnalize each one, but they still took time to send me their autograph which is very cool. :D

i do agree that i don't really like the personalization on certain autographs like on baseball cards cause it does look tacky. for photos or even index cards i ask for a personalization cause it tells them that you are wanting it for yourself, and not to make money. it does also tells me that they took the time to read what you wrote and not just stuffed it into the pile. one such instance i loved getting personalized is a terri clark autograph that just got recently. it was a photo that i bought at one of her concerts and did not get it signed then but to get it signed was awesome. come eventually i may just want the autograph. i will be happy either way, personalized or not. after all i am discovering that it is a good hobby.

EASILY personalized. Shows that they read your letter and it means they're actually acknowledging you. Plus when you show your family/friend, it's just cooler.

I like when they personalized the autograph with something else than just "To Mia" otherwise simply autographs are the best.

I don't care either way, just as long as they are authentic.
I'll never get rid of them, I just like hanging them up in my house.

Definitely liked a personalization, or even a letter/note! I've gotten a few back like that and it makes it that much more special.

I prefer personlised signed photos, as it shows that the person you are writing too i.e. star, knows your name and has read your letter, and they are bothered about you writing.

At first when I first started collecting signed photos, I was just happy at receiving a signed photo of them, I guess I was 'learning' and so that was good enough. Then when they started writing my name on the photo as well, that was fantastic, as my favourite star who I idolised was writing my name and had read my fan letter to him. Nowadays I actually send them a card too, and now I find they write also a little letter back to thank me for taking the time to do it all!

If I'm getting a solo 8x10 signed, I don't mind the celebrity personalizing it. However, I really don't like that on posters or group shots.

Personalized is good if it means that someone who doesn't usually sign, will sign because they know it's less likely to end up on eBay

Personalized if I want to display the signed item

Personalized in books or on bookplates

Personalized if I want to gift the item to someone (I think - if a friend is a fan of someone then an item signed and personalized by that someone can make a nice gift)

Not personalized if a secretary does the personalization - regardless of whether the autograph is real or (worse still) a pre-print.
