Submit Your Story for the 2012 Autograph University Yearbook

Update: Download the 2012 Autograph University Yearbook now.

Let’s build something together.

When I started Autograph University my vision was to create a comprehensive collection of autograph-related resources to help you improve your collection, meet celebrities and get more enjoyment out of the hobby. What I knew early on is that I could only present a sliver of the knowledge contained in the autograph community if I wrote solely based on my own experiences. Because of that, I’m creating the Autograph University Yearbook.

The Autograph University Yearbook will be a compilation of stories, commentary and wisdom from you, the autograph community. It’s a chance for you to tell your tale. It’s a chance for your voice to be heard. It’s a chance to be the professor.

To be in the Yearbook email me a few paragraphs about something autograph-related you’d like to share with the community. Some ideas:

  • Your favorite all-time autograph story (many of you submitted these for our Cal Ripken giveaway, please re-submit if you’d like it included in the Yearbook)
  • Why you collect autographs
  • Commentary on the state of the hobby
  • “What I learned” about autographs (tips, etc.)

Submissions will be included unedited (except for typos.) The 2012 Yearbook will be distributed in May as an eBook and will be free to download. I hope we can do this every year.

Submission guidelines:

  • Submissions will be accepted until March 31, 2012 April 14, 2012. Just send it in already! :)
  • Email your submission to matt@autographu.com.
  • Your submission should be as long as it needs to be (although 100 – 500 words is recommended).
  • Have a picture? Send it along and I’ll try to include it (layout has yet to be finalized).
  • Include your Name and the Contact Information you’d like to appear with your entry (e.g., email, Twitter handle, website URL).

This is going to be an awesome project and I can’t wait to put it together with you.
