There is a (barely credible) advert on BT Sports asking famous sports stars who their first ever autograph was. Each answered with the name of some equally famous sports star. A more accurate memory would be that it was actually some fourth division clogger from Northampton Town called Gnasher Williams, or something.

Who did you get as your first autograph?

All of The Clash. But not Topper, he'd been sacked by then. Got Terry Chimes instead.

I've only ever asked for two autographs. The Clash, and Glen Matlock.

I can’t really remember. Gotta be honest I grew up in more an era of pictures and selfies and whatever. I remember the signing session at the start of 08/10 being the first time I met some of the players and got a few autographs and that was awesome. Can’t remember who though.

I'm always amazed that people can genuinely remember their first autograph, album, etc. Maybe it's me but I have a rough idea but no exact memory of a specific first. It would have been a cricketer or footballer from the early 80's.
My most earliest, and fondest, memory of an autograph was as a very young boy watching Nottinghamshire at Cricket and talking to my parents about how Tim Robinson was my favourite cricketer. Someone stood nearby (who turned out to be the Notts manager) invited us to the dressing room and they all signed a bat for me and I got to chat with Robinson for about 5 minutes or so. Great experience as a kid.
Probably not my first autograph, but certainly my earliest autograph memory and has stuck with me longer than the rest.

In person was robert englund (freddy krueger) but sourced off the interwebs with all that authenticity jazz was a framed joe strummer print with autograph.
