The value of signed photos of Fidel Castro jumped by more than 800 percent from 2000 to 2010, according to Paul Fraser Collectibles.
Signed photos of El Comandante went for 325 British pounds - or $531.44 - in 2000. They were worth 2,950 pounds - or $4,823.84 - by 2010, a rise of 807 percent.
Castro's signature is one of the 40 most sought-after celebrity autographs, according to Paul Fraser Collectibles.
Four other top Fidel Castro collectibles include:
  • A February 1961 check Castro wrote to Che Guevara.
  • His gold-plated Colt handgun.
  • A letter from Castro to Hugh Hefner and other archives from his 1967 Playboy interview.
  • Celia Sanchez' account of the final days of the Cuban Revolution.
