signed galton and simpson prints

Postby HILTS3188 » Wed Jul 11, 2012 11:37 am

this week have just recieved my signed galton and simpson prints from the original memorabilia company, of the dirty old man and hancocks blood donor, have you heard of the site, it is brilliant

they cosy £30.00 each very, very reasonable, they are a limited collection of 950 prints, and the certificate that comes with it shows galton and simpson signing them.

they are going to be pride of place in my home, hope you all feel the same :D
at times you do impinge on my finer aesthetic moments

*shouts8.. PHOTO PHOTO PHOTO PHOTO PHOTO... lol

Let the dog see the rabbit!!

No, seriously, a great buy there. It would be pride of place in my home. My favourite Steptoe possessions are Wilfrid's 1976 book "All Above Board" and a very rare book of Enid Blyton's "Island of Adventure".. what's that got to do with Steptoe? Well, it is a photo book with scenes from the 1982 film.. and Wilfrid is in the book several times!!

Oh, of course my favourite is my signed copy of Susannah's book, with the personal dedication (and correction she made to one of the pages when I put my foot in it!!)

There's the idea for a new thread there... when the old Steptoe society site turned in to a forum it had a section that showed memorabilia, maybe we should have a thread for people to post pictures of their Steptoe items... not in a competitive way, there's none of that here, just a way for the rest of us to think... lucky git... !!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol Phillip is fine, with the double L spelling... though usually the only time I get called that is when my mum is angry with me (then I get middle named too of course) or when the judge er.. oh too much information...

Ha ha... anyway back to the topic...

When I met them I was too over awed to ask, but also, I really have trouble understanding autographs... when an Artist is dead perhaps. but otherwise, I don't really get it.

But when someone id deceased their autograph is rare, they can't sign anymore... when they are alive you can send off and get it (or their secretary can autopen it). To me it says, this person can write their name. My neice is 6, she can write her name. Don't get me wrong, people can collect what they want, I just don't see the significance in their name on a bit of paper.

But then autographs fetch a lot of money.. the most expensive I ever saw actually sell was for £2500... who do you think it was for?
