Rare autographs: more profitable than the stock market

The PFC40 Autograph Index has just been updated showing prices realised in 2010 – 2011

The Index tracks the performance of 40 of the world’s rarest autographs, fully authenticated in Museum grade condition.

In the last 12 months the index is up 5.2% whereas the compound average annual return over the last 11 years stands at an impressive 14.84%, which clearly shows the benefits of investing in quality items of the utmost rarity.

The biggest mover was a genuine signed photograph of Michael Jackson, up 60% in value to £1,200.


Apollo 11 legend Neil Armstrong remains the world’s most valuable living signature at £5,950, +8.18% on the year.

The most valuable item within the index is a fully authenticated signed photo of all four Beatles, +6.67% to £24,000.

And, finally…. If you’d invested £45,305 in 2000 you’d now be sitting on £207,740, an increase of 358.8%.

Very profitable and much more fun than a share certificate!
