Buying Autographed Baseball stuff off ebay....

Postby RynMan » Tue Jul 04, 2006 7:34 am

Would you guys buy stuff off ebay of players? Signed balls etc? Seems to me that some of the stuff is pretty legitimate. Anyone ever had any bad experiences/heard anything?

i'm a big believer in eBay, but unless you can link this stuff with a store or something and can get all the aunthenticty stuff, don't bother.

As long as it has a COA, I wouldn't be worried.

And make sure the COA isn't a piece of paper the guy printed out from MS Word. ;-D

if you get a ball signed at a ballgame, is there any way to get a COA?

Not that I know of, which stinks because I've gotten most of my autographs (RJ, Ortiz, Tejada, Peavy, Chavez, Harden, and plenty more) live in person before a game.

I think taking a picture counts, but I'm not 100% sure since I don't really buy or sell autos.

I wouldn't trust it unless the COA was from someone reputable like Upper Deck, and/or it had the hologram seal on it from whichever sport.

I know a guy who knew a guy in college who used to forge autograph's and COA's and sell them on eBay.

Agreed. I got a COA from a store in the mall and they misspelled the name. I had to go back. I would recommend buying from a reputable dealer, researching the auto to make sure that it looks good, and getting a good COA.
