The Case of the Disappearing Documents
One collector's love for presidential memorabilia lasted decades—and led to an indictment roiling a cloistered world..

At age 10, Barry Landau wrote a letter to Dwight D. Eisenhower, admiring his "very beautiful" wife and offering his assessment of where the general stood in the country's pantheon of great leaders. "I think you lived the most exciting and the most interesting life then [sic] any other President of our United States," according to a copy of the letter released by the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.

“I Am The Greatest!“: Eine Studie zu den Handschriften von Muhammad Ali
von Heinz-Ulrich Kammeier

Das Sammeln von Handschriften berühmter Persönlichkeiten bereitet in der Regel große Freude, es sei denn es stellt sich heraus, dass man im Nachhinein erkennen muss unechte Signaturen in seiner Sammlung zu haben. Auch wenn diese Erfahrung schmerzlich ist (der Verfasser dieser Zeilen weiß, worüber er schreibt), so ist es doch hilfreich ein Buch an die Hand zu bekommen, das einem hilft, Falschsignaturen zu erkennen.

Shawn Anderson, Markus Brandes und Stephen Koschal haben ein solches vorgelegt, in dem sie die Signiergewohnheiten und auch die Falschunterschriften des wohl größten Boxsportlers aller Zeiten, Cassius Clay bzw. Muhammad Ali vorstellen und an zahlreichen Beispielen erläutern.

Im vorliegenden Buch mit dem Titel “The Collector’s Guide to Muhammad Ali Autographs“ stellen die drei Autoren über 100 echte und falsche Handschriften des an Parkinson leidenden früheren Boxweltmeisters aller Klassen vor und beleuchten alle Facetten: die echten Unterschriften, die reproduzierten und die gefälschten, die das FBI auf den Plan riefen.

Auch wenn man nicht das Gebiet „Sport“ sammelt: das vorliegende Werk gewährt einen detaillierten Einblick in die Signiergewohnheiten eines faszinierenden und doch so unglücklichen Menschen namens Muhammad Ali bzw. Cassius Clay.

Das Buch kann bei Markus Brandes, Wiesenwinkelstrasse 1, CH-8593 Kesswil, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. zum Preis von € 10 bestellt werden.

    50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen with Michael and Sebastian Vettel

    Both, Michael and Sebastian, were close to the fans. So it was possible to collect a lot of great autographs. Michael wrote autographs in many different situations. Sebastian wrote even more always trying to fulfill every autographs wish. At the end of the day I had more Michael autographs as usual.
