PADA is an international organization of dealers in autographs and manuscripts which promotes the highest standards in this field. With its strong guarantee of authenticity, rigorous code of ethics, and commitment to professional excellence, PADA is the leading source for knowledgeable, experienced and ethical dealers in autographs, and autographs that are unconditionally guaranteed authentic. These include letters, documents, manuscripts, photographs, and books signed by notable individuals in a wide variety of fields such as history, literature, music, the arts, science, aviation, business, and vintage entertainment and sports.

You can learn more about our members by visiting the Member Directory page and reading about each dealer's areas of specialization. Many of our member dealers have also posted selections from their inventories for you to see. Most PADA members offer direct access to their extensive stocks on their web sites, thus providing the opportunity to see descriptions of many thousands of autographs, documents and manuscripts through this site.

ALERT: Several unscrupulous eBay sellers are issuing what they claim to be a COA sanctioned by PADA. These COAs are fraudulent. The sellers using them are not members of PADA, and caution should be used in dealing with them. The Professional Autograph Dealers Association does not issue an organizational COA, and therefore does not stand behind either the aforementioned dealers or the items they are selling.
