Autographs & Memorabilia
Autographs & Memorabilia is a full time autograph dealer based in Hertfordshire run by Andy Hemington. Hemington has been a collector for 30 years but about 12 years ago he decided the best way to improve his own collection was to give up his job in the bank and to concentrate fully on the world of autographs.
Whilst sport was always his real love, he decided to collect everything from the world of film, TV, music and all sports. He used to attend all the film premieres, TV and music shows, award ceremonies, press junkets in London and also attended award ceremonies such as the Emmys and the Oscars in Los Angeles as well as various awards events in New York. In the last year he has concentrated on the sport side of the business whilst 2 other people have been getting his entertainment bits. Photo proof is shown wherever possible in the growing world of fakes.
Hemington has attended golf events in Wales, Scotland, England, France, Holland and the US and football events in Italy, France, USA, Portugal, Spain as well as all across the UK. He covers all the mainstream sports as well as some of the less talked about ones.
In the last couple of years people Hemington has managed to get autographs from include Valentino Rossi, Roger Federer, Dan Carter, Dan Wheldon, Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Lewis Hamilton, Frankie Dettori, Marco Simoncelli, Bjorn Borg, Gary Player, Mark Spitz and Jenson Button. His London team have got Kylie Minogue, Noel Gallagher, Rod Stewart, Matt Groening, Henry Winkler, George Michael, Cameron Diaz, Tom Cruise, Michael J Fox and Donny Osmond.
Hemington was previously involved in a joint venture with 2.4 Autographs and First Choice Memorabilia where they undertook many private signings and produced over 100 limited edition licensed prints and montages. These include Stirling Moss, Gareth Edwards, Pele, Alex Higgins, Ricky Hatton, Ray Kennedy, JPR Williams, Ian Wright, Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law, Nat Lofthouse, Tim Witherspoon, Alan Taylor and Frankie Dettori.
