Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia

AFTAL Approved Dealer 070

UACC Authorised dealer RD316 

On offer is this approx 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" album page that has been personally hand signed by Wilfred Pickles.

This album page has been removed from an autograph book dated around 1950. 

Stock ref # ID19

Condition: Good for its age. There is a small mark at the bottom left hand side this is not effecting the signature. 

Please note unfortunately, sometimes due to the computer scans, photography and protective sleeves this may make the appearance of the signatures look blurred. Please rest assured that the signatures you purchase will be perfectly clear unless stated otherwise.

Due to high postal charges we are now offering in the UK a first class postage option on some lower valued items (if applicable). Please remember it is at the buyers risk if this shipping method is chosen as they are not covered by insurance.

In the unlikely event of loss or damage in transit Proof of shipping would be supplied.

For International buyers a discount has been added to the shipping cost.

Wilfred Pickles OBE (13 October 1904 – 26 March 1978) was an English actor and radio presenter.

Born in Halifax in the West Riding of Yorkshire, Pickles was a proud Yorkshireman, and having been selected by the BBC as an announcer for its North Regional radio service, went on to be an occasional newsreader on the BBC Home Service during World War II. He was the first newsreader to speak in a regional accent rather than Received Pronunciation, "a deliberate attempt to make it more difficult for Nazis to impersonate BBC broadcasters", and caused some comment with his farewell catchphrase "... and to all in the North, good neet". His first professional appearance was as an extra in Henry Baynton's production of Julius Caesar at the Theatre Royal in Halifax in the 1920s.

Pickles soon became a radio celebrity, and also pursued an acting career in London's West End theatre, on television and film.

This item is being offered to you by Berni Greenhalgh, an AFTAL (Autograph Fair Trade Association Ltd) Approved Dealer #AD070 and a UACC  (Universal Autograph Collectors Club) - Authorised Dealer - #RD316 

Please bid/purchase with full confidence knowing that I abide fully with all AFTAL & UACC code of ethics.

Contact details for dealer verification.


All the signatures Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia sell are hand-signed originals and not digitally or mechanically re-produced. WE DO NOT SELL pre-printed, secretarial, Autopen, facsimile or fake signatures.

 All signed items are guaranteed to be 100% AUTHENTIC backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Our autographs are obtained from private verified collections, in person or selected bona fide autograph dealers.

 Please do not become an internet statistic. Eliminate the risk and only purchase from recognised approved autograph dealers. Estimates are that as much as 80% of the autographs for sale online are not authentic.


Please read our information on certificates of authenticity.

 From now on each item we sell at Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia is tagged with our tamper proof official COA (certificate of authenticity), assigned a 7 digit security code and then linked with the buyers surname. You can then enter both sets of details into our database at anytime to view the item you have purchased.


Simply enter the 7 digit Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia security code that you will find on your COA Sticker, which will be on the back of your photographs, displays etc or provided to you separately on request at the time of purchase. Then enter the purchasers surname and click search. Remember you can only find your item if you have both the 7 digit security code and the correct purchasers surname for each particular item.


Old fashioned paper certificates of authenticity are forever being lost, not required or in some peoples opinion a worthless piece of paper, All details are now stored on our database, which means you will have no need to go back to your original seller to obtain a new certificate or have the item authenticated by a third party. Both of which can be expensive.


Please note: We do not transfer ownership of any items sold on by anyone buying from Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia. If a different surname is required on the COA please advise at the time of purchase as once the details are uploaded onto the database for security reasons they cannot be changed afterwards.


It is appreciated that buying autographs can be a daunting task even for the experienced collector. So for peace of mind and absolute confidence ALL signed items sold by Has-Been-Signed Memorabilia are unconditionally guaranteed for life and are accompanied by a tamper proof COA attached. 


On some signed memorabilia it may not be possible to attach the COA sticker as this may mar or devalue your purchase i.e theatre flyers, programmes, double signed album pages etc. In this case the COA sticker will be sent unattached.



 AFTAL are working together with the Police, Trading Standards and Customs and Revenue officers to monitor and help stamp out the ever-growing problem of non-authentic signed memorabilia being sold and distributed throughout the UK. 

The “Autograph Fair Trade Association” ( AFTAL ) was formed by a group of acknowledged autograph dealers, with the intention of stamping out the market in fake items and ensuring that the customer is able to find dealers that they can trust.

 UACC - 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.
