    In today’s memorabilia market, if it does not come with some form of a Certificate of Authentication. I would consider it a fake.

    Unless the seller does this a lot, and have had many of their buyers give positive feed back. Any form of negative feedback, should be investigated first.

    For my more skeptical mind, I'd want both a Certificate of Authenticity and a little video of the dude signing it, with the "seller" next to him smiling as it's being done.

    Not a photo, but video. Videos are harder to fake than a single photo.

    Same here.

    I also want the person who is obtaining the signature of the Sports Star or Celebrity to also sign the COA. Put a 2 taper proof hologram stickers with identical serial numbers on both the item and the COA.

    I would then purchase the item then and only then with what both Sluggo and myself advised.

    COA= Certificate Of Authenticity.

    I had John Romada Sr. sign a bunch of silver age Amazing Spiderman comics once and got no COA or anything. I did gt a picture of myself with him. I later sold the comics to a comics shop. If there is a question abut the authenticity of the signature, the value of the comics would have gone down, but I had a good story of how I got Romada to sign the comics. And the guy that bought them believed me, but I agree a COA from a reputable company is the only way to know for sure unless you witness him signing the object. I'm even suspicious sometimes about fake COAs.
