One of the questions we receive all the time is what is the difference between UACC members and UACC Dealers? Simply put any collector can join the UACC but they are not recognized by us to sell autographs. Those companies in the UACC Registered Dealer program have submitted an extensive application along with written references to become a one of our approved dealers. UACC policy is to recommend only these dealers to inquiries from collectors. These approved dealers are found on our website with all contact details and are continuously being monitored by our staff. They are also the only ones allowed to use of our logo in their advertising. Please contact us before you buy from someone claiming membership.
The UACC would like to pay tribute to its founder Harold Rapp. Harold and small group of collectors from Long Island, New York got together and formed the UACC in 1964. At that time dues were $3.00 and included a typed or mimeographed 2 page Pen & Quill. There goal was simple. Fellowship of collectors. Back then the number of Autograph Dealers world wide could be counted on one hand. How things have changed.
