2. The signature on the product is checked
3. The product’s tamper-resistant, serialized hologram is inspected to see if attached properly
4. The product’s tamper-resistant, serialized hologram and certificate of authenticity (COA) are counter checked to match
5. The product’s serialized number is recorded in our partner’s online databases. This number can be counter-checked on our “Verify Memorabilia” tab for full verification of the item.
Once an item passes the 5 point inspection process, items are sent for delivery.
What do we recommend for displaying autographed memorabilia?
Framing or encasing authenticated sports memorabilia is the perfect way to showcase them. We offer framing services and display cases as an optional add on, on our website. We do recommend that items not be exposed to direct sunlight, ultraviolet light or any other direct light as this may cause fading to signatures and hand-numbering or discoloration to the item over time. Unfortunately, we cannot replace items that are improperly displayed or stored by the customer.
