Armstrong's Death a Moonshot for Collectors
Autograph prices can skyrocket after an icon's death. The latest example is the surging demand for Neil Armstrong's signature.
Since his death on Aug. 25, demand for anything signed by the first man to walk on the moon has surged, with asking prices climbing by as much as 100% to $10,000 for an autographed photo, according to dealers. And that surge has sparked an admittedly morbid discussion over how the passing of a well-known figure influences autograph and memorabilia prices.
