BACKGROUND: A pioneer in the autograph field, I have six decades of first-hand autograph experience. I began collecting autographs in-person in 1960, and have collected ever since - all sports, music, politics and more. I am a well-known and respected figure in the autograph field, known as "The King of Autographs" (KOA.)
AUTHENTICITY: Purchase with confidence! All autographed items are guaranteed authentic for life. I only offer autographed material of names I have first-hand experience with, whose signatures I know very well and am 100% sure of their authenticity. All signed items $25 and above receive a personalized Letter of Authenticity (LOA) on my KOA letterhead, which includes a photo of the item (see sample LOA.) The LOA provides authentication certification, and eliminates the need for encapsulation or an unsightly and unnecessary sticker on the item.
PROVENANCE: Many signed items offered come with provenance (knowledge of history and origin of the item) - and of those, many were obtained personally by myself and others were obtained by longtime collector friends. This is an added bonus that very few sellers are able to I am regarded by veteran hobbyists as the top first-hand autograph expert in the business! I am president of a third-party autograph authentication firm, FIRST-HAND AUTHENTICATION (FHA.) FHA is the only autograph authentication firm where all authentications are based on first-hand experience.
