Conway’s Vintage Treasures is owned by Kevin Conway, a collector of Vintage Movie Posters, Historical & Sports Memorabilia, and rare Celebrity Autographs for about 25 years. While serving in the US Navy aboard a nuclear powered submarine, I attended a local auction (while of course on shore duty in VA) where they were selling rare vintage autographs and movie posters. I was just amazed at all this history that was available to the public. It was then that my collecting passion for this impressive memorabilia was born.
We pride ourselves with acquiring only the most exclusive, rare collectibles and memorabilia for the “special” collector.
One thing our customers know about us, is that we are fanatical about insuring all of our original treasures are 100% authentic. We go to great lengths authenticating our acquisitions. And, unlike many dealers we don’t sell “everything”. You won’t see contemporary autographs such as Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie on our web site. No, you’re more likely to find the genuine legends of Hollywood, History and Sports. For example, , John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Franklin Roosevelt, JFK, Abraham Lincoln or Babe Ruth. The primary reason we don’t invest in contemporary autographs is many modern day celebrities DON’T sign a name, they scribble, making it very nearly impossible to authenticate, with such limited data. Also, modern celebrities don’t have a historical trail of their signing habits. For example, autograph studies on Tom Cruise are not available. On the other hand, there have been extensive signature studies accomplished on celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Judy Garland and each President.
We only sell what we know and have expertise in. That’s why we guarantee the authenticity of all our autographs and movie posters for life.
