I’ve tried to understand why autographs are important to own; so I ask you why this is a thing:

Is it because the paper is something Buddy actually touched in his brief time on earth?

Is it because the signature captures a tiny moment in time where Buddy was focussed on that one thing... with you... if so, how does *your* moment sell to someone else

Is it because you now have something of his, as in a possession, that can be given away

Is it because you can trade it, years later, for ever-increasing larger sums of money; where the question loops back to why you’d want to own this autograph.

There’s an ephemeral element here which seems misplaced yet transient, while money still plays a force on an upward value.

But, help me understand why people seek autographs.
