PADA seeks to encourage interest in and appreciation of the field of autograph collecting. It strives to promote high standards of business ethics, professionalism, and service in the trade. PADA aims to establish a marketplace for autographs in which collectors can buy and sell with confidence, and receive accurate and informed advice from its members.
Membership in PADA is limited to dealers who have demonstrated expertise and integrity in buying and selling autographs. All applicants for membership in PADA are carefully screened, and all members must adhere to PADA's strict code of ethics, including its complete guarantee of authenticity.
As a result, whether you are buying, selling, or seeking an appraisal of autographs, PADA is your guarantee of quality, service, and integrity.
Please note that the association does not purchase, sell, appraise or authenticate autographs, but our individual members do. The Membership Directory lists all of the dealers who belong to the association along with the areas of specialization of each. Please check the membership directory to locate the dealers who would be most likely to help with your specific interests or questions. When you contact any of our members, please let them know that you received their names through PADA.
For more information, contact PADA directly (see below) or any of its members. PADA dealers look forward to sharing with you the excitement and rewards of autograph collecting and helping you find the autographs that you will treasure for years to come.
