Autograph Pros LLC's Program to Help Boost Your Charity Auction Profits

Pune, India (PressExposure) March 13, 2009 -- Autograph Pros LLC has launched a program wherein any charitable organization holding a charity auction can get hold of celebrity auction items to help increase the collections at their auctions, thereby ensuring greater success.

The company has on its database, a huge collection of personally signed and authenticated autographed items that one can chose from. These include over 5000 autographs from the music industry, over 3000 celebrity autographs, in excess of 250 sports related autographs, besides many others.

The good thing about their charity program is that it lets you choose amongst their entire range of items. As a charitable organization, you also have access to a large number of items that are not displayed on the website. With the items available online, you can also choose to go through their database at your own pace.

All the items that are bought through Autograph Pros have been autographed in person and come with a hand signed ‘Certificate of Authenticity’, along with a hologram that is applied on the item to certify its authenticity. This leaves absolutely no room for any fakes creeping into your possession. The pricing of these products is as varied as the list of items, and you can hope to find something that fits your budget with ease. Examples include the Massive Attack Matrix autographed photo selling for $29, the Scott Speedman autographed photo priced at $34; and if you wish to spend more, you can always look at items like the Angus Young (guitarist for the band AC/DC) autographed SG style guitar PSA priced at $1999.

While the prices of some of the items might seem restrictive, the profits that can be earned for your charity can also be huge. An example in case is a Keith Richards (guitarist for Rolling Stones) autographed guitar that a charity organization bought for $900, which ended up being auctioned for $10,000. You do the math.

Another very important aspect of this program is that it allows charities to return any items that remain unsold at the end of the auction, thereby making sure that the charity does not undergo any losses due to the same. However, you are required to buy these items prior to the scheduled auction. Once you conduct an auction where your purchases exceed $5000, Autograph Pros donates an additional item to help you with your cause. Michael Kasmar, the owner of Autograph Pros, who has been collecting autographs since the early 1980s, said that “You will find on our site that we make every purchase as comfortable and secure as humanly possible.” For the people who are skeptical or apprehensive about buying autographed items, he said “With our huge success, we have been able to help countless charity organizations raise vital funds for their causes.”

Autograph Pros LLC is a registered UACC dealer, and has decades of experience in dealing with genuine personally autographed items. Founded by Michael Kasmar, the organization has been in the public light through TV channels such as ESPN and Access Hollywood, and a number of print publications. Autograph Pros assures that all your online transactions through them secure.

About Autograph Pros

Michael Kasmar started as a baseball card and autograph collector in the early 80s and used his natural entrepreneurial skills to form Autograph Pros in the 90s, a leading provider of celebrity autographs and music memorabilia. He was one of the first to introduce in-person autographs to the ebay market and shortly after used his technical skills to create an online presence at

Having been a huge fan of rock and roll growing up, Michael opted to pursue music autographs rather than what all of his competitors decided to do which was chase sports figures. In the matter of only a few years Michael Kasmar and his now family run business had become one of the largest
autographed guitar dealers in the world and featured an extensive online photo gallery of musicians and celebrities signing his items. His in-person scrap book features photos of him with Presidents and guitar legends, Hollywood A-Listers and all the "Who's Who" in the celebrity world, his favorite being the photo of him with Keith Richards (guitarist for The Rolling Stones) where Keith has his arm around Michael with a huge grin which displays a touch of friendship towards this autograph dealer. Autograph Pros is the exclusive provider of music and celebrity autographs to as well as to the New York Times Store.

What's really exciting to see is their incredible 1 of a kind custom airbrushed guitars which are hand signed by Madonna, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, The Rolling Stones, just to name a few. "We've done both public and private signings with celebrities and musicians. Our items have been seen at just about every major auction house in the world and we provide more proof of authenticity than customers should ever ask for. I have a natural drive and passion for our new program called Charity Works. I've always been excited about Autograph Pros because we truly are a cut above the rest, but providing these incredible items to charity events and watching the excitement they drum up as well as the desperately needed funds
during this troubled economy, it's truly rewarding. With our expertise and input from several non-profits, we've created a COST FREE consignment program that not only works, but in almost every case, surpasses the charity's expectations!"
