Just wondering from a collection stand point, what would be more valuable to you, a disc that is new autographed by a top pro or one that is from there bag used with the info inked on the back?

The first one would be more valuable to me, because the disc is probably mine. In the second case, it is probably a disc they lost and it doesn't belong to me.
Im saying you get the disc as a souveiner, they gave it to you, etc. it wasnt found it was yours to keep without any guilt

I would say a disc given to you by a pro straight from their bag. O.k. o.k. ....that wasn't an option. I'd say the first choice would be more important to me. Especially if I was the one who got the autograph. Not bought off of Ebay.
The disc which was used by the Open World Champion to sink the last putt of the World Championships, in a sudden death playoff, uphill, into a strong wind from 40 feet away with an OB line just past the basket. Or would that be asking too much?
One from their bag, from a company other than their sponsor before they became sponsored.
haha that would be awesome but I think it would be hard to get anyones putter from them. Also Mark you may be on the list of people that someone would want a disc from.

Mark thats not asking to much at all the O.B. Line could have been water instead.
Do we have to choose from those two scenarios? because the most collectible ones to me are the very few that have stories behind them and take me somewhere else when I think of them.

priceless.
I think autographed discs are onyl really special to the people they are autographed for....if one of the top pros personally autographed a disc for me, I would never sell it or part with it because it has that sentimental value that only I could appreciate. However, unless you can produce a reputable certificate of authenticity for ANY autographed merchandise, a true collector will write the signature off as a fake. I would rather just have a brand new first run stamped disc in a popular model, than either of the two options. Although having the second disc would be kinda cool, imagining the things that disc has witnessed...
yeah, I would rather walk up to them, say val Jenkins, and say can I get your autograph, and have her put it on my disc. Just seems cooler that way.
This is an interesting thread. I see all points of view. I personally have many discs that the top pros cashed with. Are these as rare or worth as much as mint condition stuff? Who's to say? I believe they are rare in the fact that these discs have had the players hands and game time "sweat". I've got discs from Feldberg with Major Event Championships all over them. I recently acquired some discs from Climo when I was in Florida that he threw. I treated them as any mint condition disc, cleaned and wrapped. These are pieces of Disc Golf history and I believe should be in the Hall of Fame one day. I mean these discs helped Climo win his #8, #9 and#10 World Championships, priceless. Just my opionion.

I just like the stuff that where milestones in my brief time playing (Igot my first ace at Dailiawood at 2008 ace race 2nd hole 2nd time tossing the "nebula" 6 months after my first game of dg and 1 week before I turned 40) haven't thrown it since.
