Charles Lindbergh's autograph: the most famous man in the world

Charles Lindbergh’s autograph is one of the most sought after on the market.

By the time Lindbergh landed in Paris on May 21, 1927 he was the most famous man on Earth.

His non-stop transatlantic flight changed the world.

Here’s what you need to know about the market for his autograph.

It’s pretty rare

Lindbergh signed a lot of autographs in 1927.

But he stepped off his signing over time.

While he spent the remainder of his life in the public eye, he was an intensely private man.

He tended to avoid busy public events.

When his infant son was kidnapped in 1932, he stopped signing almost entirely.

The media frenzy surrounding the case forced the family to flee to Europe until 1939.

That leaves collectors with just a few years when Lindbergh was an active signer.

Demand has been high since 1927

There has been huge demand for Lindbergh’s signature since 1927.

And this market has never disappeared.

Each generation has enthusiastically adopted Lindbergh as an icon.

The market is not just limited to the US.

Lindbergh’s achievement belongs to Europe as America.

After all, he touched down on French soil.

This demand has led to steady growth in value over the last century.

It makes Lindbergh an excellent choice for investors.  

High quality

One of the great pleasures of collecting Lindbergh autographs is they tend to be of high quality.

Signed photographs generally show him with the Spirit of St Louis, the plane in which he achieved his record breaking feat.

It’s also possible to own signed pieces of the original canvas from the aircraft.

Lindbergh typically gave these out to dignitaries.

They’re a tangible connection to that historic flight.

Letters too are highly prized, particularly those on the subject of flight.

So while rarity and demand drives value…

Quality keeps prices high.
