The RACC Staff


Justin Steffman

Justin Steffman

RACC President, Head of Moonshots

Justin Steffman began collecting autographs in person at a young age and continued doing so for 2 decades after. His drive has taken him coast to coast and allowed him to meet everyone he ever dreamed to meet, including icons like Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Stones, and most legends of Hollywood.

Beyond just meeting a lot of famous people, Justin has networked over a 20 year period with hundreds of the most experienced in person autograph collectors and sellers worldwide over the years, and has used his insight and resources to help create and establish the Real Autograph Collectors Club (RACC) on the internet: the leading resource and community for over 9,000 fans, collectors, and in person autograph enthusiasts.

RACC Trusted was created out of the RACC community itself, who work together to self-police and assure the integrity of all participating sellers. Justin and the moderation team are committed to leading the group with an open mind, and a strong committment to helping autograph collectors.
