Markus Brandes

Schon im Alter von 13 Jahren begann der Konstanzer, Autogrammen von Stars hinterherzujagen. Aus Hobby und Zeitvertreib wurde eine Leidenschaft, die Lebensweg und Ausbildung bestimmten und bis heute anhält.

Am 19.06.1996 meldete er als Autogramm- und Autographenhändler sein Gewerbe an.

1995 brachte er seinen ersten bebilderten Katalog heraus. Seine Vorliebe gilt dem Motorsport, Nobelpreisträger, Hollywood Vintage und Bodensee Autographen.

Heute bietet Brandes Autogramme und Autograpen großer Persönlichkeiten aus den Bereichen von Film, Literatur, Kunst, Wissenschaft, Geschichte und Politik auf seiner mehrfach ausgezeichneten Internetseite an und gilt als einer der führenden Autogrammexperten und wurde bereits berei mehreren Fäller vor Gericht als sachverständiger Zeuge geladen.

Seit August 2006 wurde er als erster deutschsprachiger zum "UACC regional director for Europe".
