My name is David Deeming I live with my wife Jackie in Suffolk and apart from being an autograph dealer I run a successful newsagents business.
I have been collecting autographs for over 30 years, my first was the ex footballer and TV pundit Jimmy Hill outside the Baseball Ground Derby in the early 1970’s when my dad took me to my first football match.
In the intervening years there have been breaks in my collecting and as my interests have changed so have my collecting habits: Hollywood stars of the Golden Age, TV classics that I remember from my youth (especially comedies) and Historical figures (from Royalty to world leaders, militaria and what is known as Notables and Notorious) and Literature are my main areas of specialty although Sport (again greats from the past boxers, cricketers etc) and Music also figure in my inventory.
You will not, as a rule, find modern pop stars, winners of Big Brother, TV and film stars, present day footballers, minor celebrities and people famous for just being famous. I would rather preserve the past than try to keep up with ever changing modern trends of ‘who’s hot and who’s not’ so I only sell what interests me and would buy myself.
I source and purchase my autographs from reputable auction houses all over the world as well as a few dealers so if you don’t see what you want give me a call or keep coming back as I am looking to bring in choice items regularly. There are a lot of fakes and fraudsters out there, as there are in all areas of collecting not just the autograph business, hiding behind P.O box numbers and fancy business titles, my name is on this business because I am proud of it, my address and telephone numbers are on here because I am genuine and have nothing to hide.
I love collecting autographs it gives me immense pleasure as I am sure it does you. I still collect, many items I have will never be sold and my enthusiasm for the subject grows.
We are members of professional associations being AFTAL approved dealer number 74. I am also a member of the UACC, have attended their authentification programme and am building up an ever expanding library of books, auction catalogues and exemplars to help expand my knowledge in this area.
