At Genuine Memorabilia you'll find a great selection of genuine film, music and sports autographs for sale.
We collect most of our own signatures and we sometimes use other trusted sources, which means we may use other members of AFTAL or someone closely connected with us whom we trust. Our business is all about you trusting us and us trusting people too so we have strict policies in place to protect our business and its reputation.
Peace of mind: Most items come with the benefit of a no quibble 14 day return policy and full refund less the postage; you'll just need to cover your return postage, unless we have been negligent in some way.

Our history: Our main man, Dave Sherwood, began collecting celebrity autographs as a personal interest over 30 years ago on his travels around the world and in more recent years autograph collecting has taken off as a full time business. During this time, Dave also managed to become an award-winning member of Surrey Police.
Dave Sherwood - 2010/2011 Surrey Police Community Officer of the Year
Theresa May (Home Secretary) Stephen Mulhern (X-Factor) Dave, Surrey PCSO of the Year 2010/11
Chief Constable's award ceremony, Guildford Cathedral, 10th Nov 2010.
Part of Dave's citation read out at the ceremony included: "With a decrease of 62% in reports of criminal damage and total notifiable crime down by 24% on the year to date, it shows that Dave's initiatives are exceptional and demonstrate that he is innovative and willing to go above and beyond the normal expectations of his role for the benefit of the community".
Honesty and Professionalism - We've been involved in collecting autographs for many years but it's increasingly important to promote your honesty, professionalism, policies and ethics, especially online. Please see our Tips & Hints page for information that will help you avoid unscrupulous traders and the inevitable disappointment of a mistaken purchase.
We try to get photographic evidence when collecting but sometimes this isn't possible. Years ago we didn't even think to do for proof of originality purposes, as it was just a hobby.
The Collection - We have many items yet to go online. Some of our stuff hasn't seen the light of day for a long time and some of it is right up to the minute and fresh in the door.
The majority of items we collect or have have collected ourselves in person, so we're not going to have say an Elvis Presley or a John Lennon autograph. However if you're looking for a current TV/film, rock/pop or sports autogaph and you can't find what you need online, it's always worth a quick email/call to see if we have them in stock..
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07989 579552. You never know, we may have just what you're after..
