Default Most valuable living autograph?

Who has the most valuable autographs for living people? Maybe like the top 3-5 or so?

Who is most valuable living auto in sports?

What about in entertainment/Celebrity?


Thought this might be an interesting topic to start discussion.

I think Mays charges quite a bit,

Astronaut Neil Armstong goes for some big cash as well

armstrong is the most valuable, he doesn't sign anymore but on very rare ocassions, one-off, no mass signings. so if he signed just a cut like an index card , you could get 4 figures for it.

baseball, mike marshall is near the top, hard signature to get, he signs infrequently.

in boxing, alfredo evangelista (fought Muhammad Ali) is very hard to find, he is living, but is difficult to find and get to sign anything. a cut like an index card gets 250 dollars, and a photo brings 500. This is as much as Ali brings himself, and I don't think Ali can really sign anymore due to his health.
