A message from Michael Kasmar, Owner of Autograph Pros…
Autograph Pros, LLC has established itself as one of the leading distributors of authentic autographed guitars worldwide. The company has experienced significant growth in recent years and is considered a market leader in this field. Despite its success, the company remains approachable and dedicated to providing personalized customer service, answering any questions about its products and ensuring a secure and comfortable purchasing experience. The company's owner, Michael Kasmar, takes pride in the company's accomplishments and is happy to share the history of how Autograph Pros came to be.
In the early 1980s, I began collecting autographs and quickly amassed an impressive collection, particularly in the realm of sports memorabilia. I devoted years to studying the industry, honing my knowledge and skills, and seeking out new sources for high-quality autographed items. However, due to financial difficulties, I was forced to sell my collection, losing signatures of many deceased legends and Hall of Famers that were irreplaceable to me.
Determined to rebuild my collection, I returned to the hobby with renewed energy and quickly established connections that allowed me to obtain in-person autographs on a regular basis. As my collection grew, I recognized the market demand for authentic autographed items, and began participating in card shows, conventions, and local auctions. As the volume of autographs I was obtaining increased, I transitioned to an online platform and became one of the first legitimate autograph dealers to list on eBay.
Over time, I have built a team of in-person graphers who spend countless hours and days obtaining the items featured on our website and auctions. We also create and participate in private autograph signings directly with countless celebrities. We take great pride in our work and have received positive feedback from fans, gift-givers, and charity organizations.
One of the greatest achievements of Autograph Pros, LLC is our work with non-profit organizations. We have helped countless charities raise vital funds for their causes and supplied top radio stations with grand prizes for their listeners. Additionally, we have furnished restaurants and bars with customized guitars to enhance the customer experience.
We hope that you will find our website to be a valuable resource and that you will become a regular visitor. We look forward to getting to know you on a first-name basis.
