The value of an autographed Russell photo can change from picture to picture. Tied to this, is the source of the autograph. Writing to the actor, or his agent, may garner a generic photo that is a reproduction and has been mass-produced. In essence, the value of this rests with the person receiving it. Collectors will have no interest in the item. The higher value photos are those that have been signed specifically by Russell Crowe. This signature can be obtained at different publicity events, and if he is willing to sign. An alternative is to mail the photograph to the actor and ask that he sign and return it, but it may or may not be returned. If you have an authenticated signature on the photo, its value will depend on who and how many people are interested in buying the picture, and where Russell Crowe is on his popularity cycle.
