Probably someone like Mick McManus or Jackie Pallo. My Dad used to take us to the wrestling at Northampton Drill Hall in the early to mid seventies. I remember getting autographs there but can't remember which would have been my first. One incident I'll never forget is Kendo Nagasaki being thrown out of the ring and landing on top of me (I was only 8 or 9 at the time) in the front row. All the old girls sitting around us set about him with their handbags! Classic.

My mother-in-law used to date Mick McManus. Late 40s/early 50s I think.

I've had things signed, but I don't count that as an autograph.

I had Pictish Trail sign his album when we went to see him recently.


In a similar vein OFD Junior got her football boots signed by Trevor Brooking at a tournament once

He was brilliant - had all the time in the world for the zillions of kids who queued up to meet him

Mine was Gareth Southgate when he played for Villa, doing a signing at a JD Sports in Walsall.
