Reader Comment!

I received another great comment from a reader regarding the autograph collecting business. 
"I have been an autograph dealer for 21 years and have been disgusted with third part authenticators and the direction this business is going for many years. "  - Arnie, September 17, 2011
It is comments just like these that  make me happy I wrote Autograph Hell so that I can help expose the people out there looking to scam buyers, and to help prevent readers from losing money.  Autograph Hell is a great resource to autograph collectors everywhere.
