Default Very Historical Pickup!

Hey all! Just got this baby in today, and boy is it nice!

Don't see too many of this guy's autos around, and I'm happy I sold some of my cards to obtain it!

Guess who??!?!?! Thanks for looking!

Nice Edison. There's an autograph dealer who has (or had) a lot of his notebooks for sale, page by page. Pretty awesome and each was page was signed off by Edison. Great pick up!

That is amazing! I would love to collect some famous signatures, but obviously it would cost quite a bit. For some reason I think it would be cool to get Charles Lindbergh. Great pickup!

you could, but Edison would write all over Tesla's space too.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

Really? That sounds really cool! Wonder how much each page went for! Thanks for looking!

Definitely! The difference between historical signatures and cards is:

a) If you've ever heard of that historical figure before, its going to cost a pretty penny
b) If you've heard of a certain football player before, you can still get an auto of his for cheap

Glad I got it though! Really good looking! Cool to know that he (indirectly) invented what we're looking at right now! Lindbergh sounds like a cool auto to have! Hahaha but I have to recover from this one first

Holy shiznit! Please tell me you are not that frickin' unintelligent. Nikola (not Nicole) Tesla had a penis. Time to educate yourself Wiki style:

Nikola Tesla - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you prefer humor when you learn, try this:

Nikola Tesla | Cracked.com

The dude even inspired a band's name:
