In case you've ever wondered what Captain Kirk's autograph looks like (as opposed to that of William Shatner), it is presented below along with several other dual signature pieces in the first three photographs. Shatner, Nimoy, Doohan, Koenig and Takei have all signed with their own name as well as that of their Star Trek TOS character. Autograph collecting is a tremendously popular hobby that might be an enjoyable way to compliment a screen used memorabilia collection - or serve as the primary collecting focus of a Star Trek/Entertainment/History collector. Fortunately, due to the immense popularity of Star Trek and the large number of science fiction/Star Trek conventions taking place across the country throughout the year; it is easy for fans to meet many of their favorite TOS and later series stars and obtain genuine autographs. As shown below, signed photos or books represent a subset of the many different types of collectibles that are suitable for inclusion in an autograph collection. All of the following items are part of the authors collection.
