Ive been looking at alot of TTM offers and it seems like %80 of them are asking prices that are around the same Ebay price for said item. Are there any advantages of going TTM?

1st, I don't do TTM. I have friends that do, but my theory is this:

On many vintage players items, you will se them listed as 'secretarial signature' because it was commonplace for guys to hire someone to sign their stuff that came in TTM because they didn't always have time. It wasn't meant to defraud, it was just common practice.

That said, without witnessing the signing 1st hand or having a COA/LOA from he person who did witness the signing, how do you know without question that your item was actually handled and signed by the person you requested?

Just my .02

All the best -

You can always talk with some of the TTM managers and ask them some questions, they'll be more than happy to lend you a hand.
