Certificate of Authenticity

Postby CrazyPooja90 » Fri Jul 30, 2004 10:51 pm

If I could get an autograph, what is the next step in getting a Certificate of Authenticity?

its kinda tough to get a certificate of authenticity if you get a ball personally signed thats what kinda sucks so your best bet is buying a ball that has already been signed that comes with a certificate of authenticity at a collectors shop or convention or something

if you are getting something signed try to get a picture of the player as he is signing it. that is probably the best way to personally authenticate it.

Now that is a fantastic idea. ;-D

I've got a card signed by Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez (not that I'd ever sell it), but just as a little proof, I kept the ticket stub for the show he was at. It shows him as as being there signing memoribilia on the stub.

The picture idea is much better though. ;-D

This is not correct.

Depending on where you live, you can submit your baseball to be authenticed by either PSA or Global Authentication at a local show. Let me know where you live and if you want more info, i can forward you to more info and how much it would cost for a proper COA.

Or you could just do what a lot of people do. Unfortunately, they do this with fakes, too. Just print 1 up on your computer. Many do it. :-/
