Sports Memorbilia Authentication

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use any company? I have a vintage signed football (NU - 1981) and I'm also trying to downsize my "stuff". I wonder if it would be worthwhile to have it authenticated before trying to sell it. Has anyone ever used a company? Is it really necessary or does it add to the value? I'm not near any of the locations that are mentioned on a quick web search, and am apprehensive of shipping it someplace.

 

Appreciate any suggestions or experiences from others. Thanks!

Dave Rimington, Irving Fryar, Roger Craig, Turner Gill, all NU coaching staff, and numerous other NU players from the 1981 squad. I'm thinking there might be pictures of me with the ball when I got it in 1981 as a kid, which should be decent authentication. Haven't looked yet though, and never tried to sell anything like it.

Authentication can be expensive and in all cases ,not really needed , since  you know the Football signatures are Official , so the origin is not in doubt    , and the less tampering , the better since  any degradation will be detrimental -

Thanks, Randy. That's what I was thinking.

PSA is who I have used in the past. I would spend the money. If you have a serious buyer they are going to want proof that the signatures are authentic. I don’t buy and signed memorabilia unless its been certified.
