Recently I’ve had some very pleasant dealings with Scott Winslow of Scott J. Winslow, Associates, Americana. Scott has a really nice Web site but also sells and auctions via eBay and LiveAuctioneers.com – where his current auction ends Sat., Oct. 31. And he doesn’t sell just autographs but also antique stock certificates and bonds, maps, prints, posters and broadsides, photographs, lottery tickets, coins and currency, cigar labels and other great stuff.
Scott has been selling historical documents and autographs full-time since the mid-1980s and is executive vice president and ethics committee chairman of the Professional Autograph Dealers Association (PADA), which is pretty much the gold standard of autograph dealers’ professional groups. I’m looking forward to interviewing him for this blog: Keep an eye peeled!
Scott is a very personable guy and an attentive seller of fine material who invites collectors to send him want lists and will contact them when he gets something they may want (for some reason a lot of dealers don’t – or they just never have what I’m collecting). Scott tells me that only about 10 percent of his stock is online, so do yourself a favor: Visit his site, then drop him an e-mail and let him know what you’re looking for. He’s at www.scottwinslow.com.
