Everyone can appreciate signed collectibles. It’s the idea that someone who made the game, designed the characters, or wrote the story actually held your item in their hands and then signed it. How many people bought something signed by someone famous and then just stared at the signature for a while at your first look. Value is certainly raised once something has been signed, but some sellers can go crazy with the idea of the increased value. I’m pleased to say that every one of the auctions below are at a great price.
Here’s a press kit for the laserdisc classic Space Ace. Don Bluth’s animation is enormously famous and for good reason. It’s very unique compared to other animation styles. This press kit comes with photos from production, animation cells, and a signed photo of Don Bluth himself.
The seller explains that the autograph has a different sheen to it which suggests it’s the real deal rather than just being part of the printed image. I’m not sure if every press kit that was made had a real autograph included, but if there weren’t many made (say 100 for example), then it wouldn’t be impossible for him to have signed each photo. You can find the auction here: Space Ace Press Kit Signed by Don Bluth
