Gerald Buckingham (1930 - 2015) was a recluse in that he lived on his own,
without internet of mobile phone.
He was an avid collector of records, books, DVDs and magasines,
but his favourite pastime was as an autograph hunter.
As you will see by his autograph albums which are also included in this sale,
he spent many hours writing to celebrities asking for signatures.
However his favourite pastime was collecting vinyl records,
with a view to getting them autographed by the artist when playing in the Exeter area.
Aside form EP picture covers, any singles that include the artist's autograph
are on the paper or plain card covers, rather than on the labels of the records.
LP signatures are either on the front or rear of the outer picture sleeve.
All signatures are believed to genuine and collected by Gerald at the back stage door of the venues.
The entire collection is here at Auction, nothing has been removed prior to sale..
We are not expressing any actual condition of the records or the sleeves,
so please view to satisfy yourself of the quality before you purchase.
A full catalogue will be on-line before the sale on the 6th December.
Private viewing is available by appointment.. 01404 891833 (not weekends.)
