Can I Get That in Writing?
Signed Collectibles

For collectors, there's nothing quite as special as a signature—evidence that an author, celebrity or historic figure was directly associated with an item.

HPB stores all offer signed books and media. Here we present just a small assortment of collectible books—plus an LP and a photo—that have been signed by the author or artist.
