Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I purchased an autograph from Al Wittnebert through the internet. When I had another UACC dealer look at it,he said that it was forged. Wittnebert gave me a very hard time when I tried to return the item and told me he had such vast experience and of all the books that he has written.He was very insulting and came across very arrogant.

He made me pay for postage both ways!!!

Al Wittnebert- crooked autograph seller and bully

AUTHOR: Jonas - (U.S.A.)

Al Wittnebert and UACC Threatens to Shut Down

The UACC apparently is unhappy with and has sent an email to the host of this website: "about taking action against the company or individuals who host the autograph alert website." The email, filled with untruths and created fantasies, comes from an Al Wittnebert.

Readers and supporters of have become outraged upon learning of this recent threat. We are not sure what article on this site has ruffled their feathers. However, as mentioned on the homepage of this site it clearly states if someone feels information posted is not correct, let the site know for a possible correction. The UACC has not contacted this site.

The UACC has long been concerned about those, including their own members, who voice their concerns about the club. A couple of years ago, the Board voted to sanction its own members who speak out with what the Board feels are untrue, unfounded or frivolous comments on an internet forum or website which the Board feels targets the club.

While attempting to smother the voice of its membership, voting on subjects like this one, you can understand why the UACC has had its share of problems which has affected its membership.

Have you ever noticed how many of this industry's major long time dealers are not members of the UACC? There are many valid reasons for not wanting to be associated with this group. In January 2008, the president of the UACC was running for re-election. He said he wanted to double the UACC membership in the next four years.

Well, its nearly two years later and finally he admits in his new message on the club website that the clubs magazine readership is at an all time low. If all the members get a copy of the club magazine then what he is stating is membership is at an all time low.

If membership is at an all time low, it certainly appears the autograph community is making a statement and the Board of Directors just dont get it. In that same message the president of the club refers to the cubs detractors. He makes it sound that if you question the UACC you become in their view a "dysfunctional nay sayers". With this attitude its no wonder there is a continued membership problem.

Not long ago in the May/June 2008 issue of the club journal the club president states that the New Pen and Quill is on its way to a banner year. Didnt take long for the journal to disappear. What happened to the Nov/Dec 2008 issue? How about the Jan/Feb 09 or the Mar/Apr 09 or the May/June 09 and the Jul/Aug 09 issues? Finally a Fall 09 issue and we read that the crisis and panic is over. Did you know there was a crisis and panic and belt tightening was needed? Belt tightening? Members paid their yearly dues and lost a handful of magazines. The club must have saved a huge sum of money not publishing a magazine for several months, not to mention the savings from the cost of postage.

As for the club members who still stick with this club remember what the club president said in his Jan/Feb 2008 message to the membership and that is that you all have a chance to vote for the people who can take the club into the future. The above few paragraphs are the future! receives complaints about the UACC on a regular basis. Some of the content in the complaints is almost unbelievable. For the good of the hobby, is working on suggestions on how to improve this club. Suggestions, that if implemented, will attract many of those who have left the club over the last ten years and also attract new members. These ideas will be presented to the UACC Board of Directors via this website at a later date.
