    Value can mean the degree of darkness/lightness. Since the particles making up the autograph and material it is written on constantly move (assuming they are not held at absolute zero), the ink or whatever the autograph is made of will sort of dilute into the material.
    If black ink on white paper, the black will fade ever so slightly. Thus, the ‘value’ changing continuously…
    I have no idea. But I know I’m the closest to the correct answer so far…and it’s been a year!

    As they sign more, the rarity decreases, but as their famousness (huh ?) also changes, the desire for them also adjusts the value ?

    There you go DP, a challenge to your closeness of correcness :-)

    Wow, maybe a few too many …ness’eses ? :-}

    um, perhaps by how old it is? ie Lou Gehrig’s autograph is worth more than Albert Pujols’ autograph. Although they are both great players of their time, Lou’s is older. Where is math involved??
