Why Steven Spielberg is buying the Oscars...
Clark Gable, Ingrid Bergman, Jack Nicholson, Lauren Bacall...
The Oscars, where Hollywood's greatest legends are crowned, rolls into LA tomorrow.
Yet Hollywood's glitz and glamour seems a long way away from ongoing talk of economic downturn and recession.
Traditional savings accounts are "a waste of time" - that's the latest word from the financial experts.
"Most investors have looked at the rates of return on their cash deposits and realised they are pitiful. Even if interest rates go up - and I'm not convinced they will - they are not going to move up by that much."
So says Mark Dampier, heard of research at one of Europe's biggest fund managers (quoted in the UK's Telegraph newspaper).
According to the Bank of England, the average savings account offers a mere 0.23% return...
But what if I said that you could do much better?
And - though it might sound odd - the answer can be found in the Academy Awards®...
Secure a better rate of return than any savings account
How...? Well you only need to follow the example set by Steven Spielberg.
In 2001, an anonymous telephone bidder paid $578,000 (£413,000) for Bette Davis's Oscar statuette at Christie's New York.
Of course, secrets get out. The "anonymous bidder" was later revealed as being... Mr Spielberg himself.
What's more, he isn't the first celebrity who's spotted the true value of Oscars memorabilia.
None other than Michael Jackson paid the record price for an Oscar trophy in 1999. He bid $1.54 million (£1 million+) for producer David O. Selznick's Gone with the Wind Best Film award.
And the second highest price paid for an Oscar? That would be the statue won by Clark Gable in 1934 for It Happened One Night...
It was bought for $607,000 (£425,000) - the buyer was once again Steven Spielberg.
You can follow in their footsteps - for less than $150
Spielberg is buying. So did Jackson. And now so can you... for just a fraction of the price they paid.
$150 can buy you a genuine signed photo of a Hollywood icon - held, touched and signed by a legendary Oscar winner.
And that's not all. As I said, you can also profit more than you would from any savings account. How? Well take a look at this...
What's great about autographs as investments is that their historical values are laid out for you to see.
As you can see above, returns on rare autographs are significantly higher than the 0.23% of an average savings account.
This is because of:
- Growing demand (the actor's legacy)
- Limited or finite supply (rarity)
- Portability - an autograph can be sold anywhere in the world
In other words, you can examine indexes like the PFC40 Autographs Index. Then pick and choose where you invest your money. These are tangible assets in which you feel confident and have full control.
Whether you're looking to spend $150, $1,500 or $150,000 - the potential growth is there to see.
That's why, in the case of Steven Spielberg and Michael Jackson:
"High net worth individuals are increasingly turning to alternative investments" - London Times newspaper
Oscar win = strong legacy on the markets
Let's face it, there will always be demand for Laurel & Hardy memorabilia. Ditto Oscar winners like Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, Ingrid Bergman or Clark Gable...
You can't say that about many investments. That's why, today, I'm offering you a first-come-first-served chance to get involved in these rare assets.
Here are just a few that we're offering for sale - and each is strictly limited:
Or invest more now, for higher potential growth...
Did you know that memorabilia linked to Oscar-winning actors can hold even more value than autographs?
And, even though Marilyn Monroe never won an Oscar, she did star in two Academy Award® nominated films...
I've been involved in autographs for 30 years, and can say with confidence these autographs are strong and proven assets.
Whether you're looking to spend $150 or $1,500... there'll always be demand for signatures by the likes of Marlon Brando or Bette Davis.
These are truly pieces of Hollywood history... remember when Marlon Brando sent a Native American activist to collect an Oscar on his behalf in 1973?
But these historic autographs are in limited supply. In fact, we only have one of each (and two Tom Hanks autographs). So you'll need to be quick.
These rare and fully authenticated items are being offered on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.
They can be bought directly from our website - so be quick to click on one of the links below:

P.S. The average compound increase of autographs is 68 times that of savings accounts (historically 15.86% for autographs). This could be your chance to beat the banks - and Academy Awards® fever tomorrow will likely further boost demand for Oscar winners' autographs. Contact our experts for FREE and exclusive advice.
