Universal Autograph Collectors Club.

The Universal Autograph Collector's Club, Inc. is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the education of the autograph collector. Founded in 1965 by a Long Island group of collectors, the UACC has grown and developed into one of the premier collector's organisations in the world.


One of the questions UACC receive all the time is what is the difference between UACC members and UACC Dealers? Simply put any collector can join the UACC as a member but they are not recognised by to sell autographs. Those companies in the UACC Registered Dealer program have submitted an extensive application along with written references to become one of their approved dealers. UACC policy is to recommend only these dealers to inquiries from collectors. These approved dealers are found on the UACC website with all contact details and are continuously being monitored.
