    Hello all. I've posted this on another board but I wanted to check here as well. :)

    Over the years, I've built up a great collection of autographs, and started a Disney set as well. I've broken it up into Movies, Character Voices, Parks-Related, and Legends.

    I was wondering if anyone else here has a collection of autographs based on Disney? I would love to hear what you have. And I don't mean autographs of local high school kids in Chip & Dale costumes signing the names of the characters :D

    Just sent my copy of "Dream It! Do It!" to Marty Sklar, who sent it back to me autographed and inscribed to me. He also signed two photos.

    Great hearing from you all. Thanks for replying. Was starting to think I was the only one. Usually when you mentioned "Disney autographs" it's the signature of some local high school kid in costume signing a character's name. Hope we can all stay in touch, compare notes, and see if we can help our collections grow!

    Sounds awesome! I've managed to build up a great collection of 8x10s, along with some signed books and other goodies along the way. Will definitely send a PM.

    I have lost an occassional photo, but am very careful about what I send. I only send books to those I know I'll get it back from. Jack Lindquist signed a photo for me, and sent a bookplate for his forthcoming book, which was a nice surprise to find in the envelope. I tried sending Sklar's book to his home, and I got it back in about 10 days.

    Nice job on Lasseter. I tried sending him a photo and all I got back was a Toy Story pre-printed autograph. Haven't been able to snag the real thing from him, although I don't usually buy autographs. I did purchase an Illene Woods signature at a decent price, though. I will definitely PM you as well and we can exchange notes!

    Nice! My wife's coworker has an in-person autograph from Walt that she got while visiting Disneyland when she was young.

    Henny's a great woman. I hope she finds it. And thinks to include me in her will. She already gave us three old Disney watches and some old Disney dollars. Still, the autograph would be a nice surprise. Who knows where she even has it. Though she just moved this summer. Fingers crossed... just in case.

    I've got Loggia on a card and photo, which was a great addition to my villains collection. I wish I had known about Stollery and Considine... need them for my Legends collection!!! I tried writing to both, but now that they are doing the convention rounds, I don't think they answer for free through the mail. Bummer.

    I have a large collection of voice over Disney/Pixar autographs. I have most of the cast from Lion King, Monsters Inc, Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. My hardest person to find, so far, has been Robbie Benson. But I did track him down and sent him a photo to sign. I have Disney animators autographs, also many Pixar related autographs too. Most of the Pixar guys draw/sketch a little drawing along with their autograph. Always looking for up to date addresses or more names for my collection. If you are a serious collector and would like to talk more just let me know. Would love to share what I have and what I would like to add to my collection.

    Welcome aboard! I will certainly get in touch. I tried tracking Benson down to two work addresses and I think I tried reaching him on LinkedIn, but have yet to find him. Congratulations on that!

    That guy's been hiding out on me. I had trouble with Austin Pendleton, too, because I wanted him for my Finding Nemo collection. couldn't reach himn through his day job at a school here in Manhattan, but I got him later on, happily.
