There are three categories for Ronald Reagan autographed photos – as an actor, as governor of California, and as President of the United of the United States. In order of value, signed photographs as President command more than signed photos as an actor, with governor coming in third. Key to the value is the authenticity of the signature. Reproduction of photographs with signatures, while nice for the casual collector, have little value in the collectibles market. Authenticated signatures have actual value, and that value will increase as time passes. If the photograph depicts a presidential act (and it is signed), the value is at its highest. Before buying or selling a Ronald Reagan autographed photo, have the signature authenticated by a recognized service and insist on a certificate of authenticity.
