One of the largest preconceptions about autograph collecting is thinking that you cannot be a collector if you are not rich. Every single autograph collector will disagree with you on this. The fact is that autograph collectors need few things that are necessary in this hobby but they are far from being expensive. The only things you need are a piece of paper and a pen. All other things, such as posters, magazines, balls, clothes, etc. are optional and it is not critical for getting autograph.
Autograph collectors can be anyone; young, old, rich, poor, male, female,… the gender, age or material status are not important as long as you have the passion and are willing to be patient and polite.
