AUTHENTICITY & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

AutographsForSale.com was launched in 1999 and is still owned and operated by former Upper Deck Authenticated Product Manager Theo Chen, one of the most successful in person sports autograph collectors AND modern sports autograph experts in the world. Many of the autographs on this site are from his personal collection, which he started in the late 1980s. He worked for Beckett Publications for almost 10 years prior to joining UDA in 1998, and has written nearly 200 published columns and feature stories about autographs, sports cards and collectibles for Beckett Publications and Junior Baseball Magazine over the years. He has been quoted by the New York Times and the National Post among many newspapers and other publications. He is is the top rated Autographs Expert on AllExperts.com.

Many competitors sell fake autographs, especially on Amazon (which doesn't care about authenticity). Authenticity is my #1 concern. I stake my reputation on every autograph I sell. Every autograph you see here was obtained 1) in person by me or one of my representatives; 2) at a paid signing by a company such as Ironclad, Mounted, Steiner, TriStar or UDA; or 3) purchased from a trusted source that was extensively scrutinized. Many of the autographs offered here are from my personal collection. I won't sell any autographed item unless I am 100% certain of authenticity! If you would like to discuss authenticity of an autograph you bought or are considering buying here or elsewhere, feel free to e-mail me or call me at 858-384-7057 (anonymous calls not accepted).

Each autographed item is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from AutographsForSale.com OR the company that obtained the signature. All autographs come with a lifetime guarantee of authenticity. If you provide a written opinion from the celebrity's agent, estate or team that your autographed item is not authentic, I will provide a full refund. However, opinions from third party authenticators such as Global Authentics (GAI), James Spence (JSA) or PSA/DNA are NOT ACCEPTABLE for refund due to the documented incompetence of ALL such companies. For example, see the photo above for three glaring examples of PSA/DNA incompetence.

To further educate yourself about third party authentication company incompetence, please see Hauls of Shame or read the book Autograph Hell written by autograph collector Charles Irion or the numerous Ripoff Report complaints about PSA/DNA or this detailed analysis of extremely questionable Derek Jeter GAI autographs or this blog post titled Is Everything From GAI Fake? or this article about fake GAI Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams autographs.

NOTE: The few autographed items here with certificates or stickers from JSA or PSA/DNA were witnessed by me and/or authenticated at paid signings.

Unlike many of our competitors, at AutographsForSale.com I sell only REAL AUTOGRAPHS. If a competitor's price seems too good to be true, BEWARE! Fake autograph sellers use many tricks, including stealing images of real autographs from sites like this and shipping forgeries instead.
Amazon in particular is notoriously flooded with fake autographs because they have no authenticity policy. Amazon collects fees from every item sold, real or fake, so they have an incentive to allow fakes to be sold on their site. Amazon accounts can be closed and opened in a matter of minutes, which allows forgers to hide their tracks. Positive feedback from customers may only mean that the seller has successfully fooled unsuspecting buyers.

AutographsForSale.com has been in business since 1999 and 92% of previous customers rated us Excellent or Good. Every autographed item you see here is IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP IMMEDIATELY. If you have a question about a product, whether it's about authenticity or anything else, I can answer it without having to call some other company.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: I am ordering a gift to be delivered directly to the recipient. Will a receipt be inside or attached to the package?
A: No. Because many AutographsForSale.com orders are gifts, the only receipt is sent electronically to the e-mail address provided; the actual shipment will not include any invoice or receipt.

Q: Do your items come framed?
A: Some items are already framed, as stated in the description and title. 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20 inch photos are standard size, so mats and frames should be available at your local stores, or see our Display Cases or Holders & Framing section. We can have many other items custom framed; e-mail us about the item(s) you are interested in having framed and we will promptly provide details. FRAMED ITEMS ARE NON-RETURNABLE.

Q: Do your items come with display cases?
A: Every autographed baseball, golf ball or hockey puck purchased comes with a free plastic display holder. Please see our Display Cases or Holders & Framing section to see dozens of options for all sorts of sports memorabilia.
