I just bought some autographs and just wanted to know what you guys think about their authenticity and what you would expect to pay for them. I just want to know if I got good deals or if I got hosed. Thanks a lot!

If they have a COA from PSA/DNA or JSA, then you should feel good about their authenticity. Those are the two most well respected authenticators in the industry. As for the others, I am no expert, but they look authentic to me based on signatures I have in my collection.

If it were me I might not trust that heyward, and on that ball i would never buy it. The signature will be neon purple and faded in a year. The rest look good.

Yeah the Heyward was the main one i was unsure of. Seemed to be too good to be true but for like 6 bucks what the heck it was worth a shot.

The JSA/PSA are very good.. theyre the best COAs out there.. The others look pretty good, except as said I would stay away from the Heyward too.

Yeah, I mean I'm pretty confident about the Jenkins, Wilhelm, and Niekro cuz theyre all JSA, and the Carter is PSA/DNA. Also, the Kell came with a letter saying that it had been authenticated by Kevin Keating who I googled and saw was a pretty notable authenticator who does a little work for PSA as a consultant. And I had some suspicions about the Heyward.

Mostly didn't know about the Cepeda, Aparicio, Irvin, Feller, Glavine, Ryan, Carlton, or Kiner.

i dont think the heyward looks bad-its just on a china ball-witch will fade fast.

The guy encouraged me to send it in to JSA or PSA as he guarantees it will pass, but that's not saying too much.

I found some stuff about making autos last on china balls online one day and figured they were worth a shot to try too.

Btw looking at my own stuff.. the Kell looks good, the Niekro looks good, and the Feller looks good.
Also.. Feller and Irivin sign for $15 each ttm, and IP alot.. so I doubt they'd be fake lol.

I really love that Jenkins stat ball.. If you get that.. if your willing to trade it I havea ton of auto'd balls and stuff in my bucket.. pm me if youd wanna move it

Yea the prices are pretty good considering s&h, cost of your own ball and other expenses. Those are all pretty good prices if you ask me. Wish more though had the HOF inscription
