I encourage you to check out John Stillman’s fantastic essay on graphing for Vice Sports, “Inside the Weird, Noble World of Autograph Collectors“. It was a pleasure to speak to John for the article which also features Brian Flam, co-founder of The Autograph Card and friend of Autograph University (check out the episode of the Autograph University Master Class featuring Brian here).
It’s refreshing to read an article that gives readers a perspective on pure collecting when so much media coverage is focused on the hobby’s commercialization and its negative symptoms (e.g., college players accepting money for signing memorabilia). And I even learned something—who knew Cicero was a collector?!
