View Full Version : ?'s about mini helmets, bats, and basketballs
11-10-2010, 02:25 PM
I am thinking about decorating the game room with autographed mini helmets, bats, basketballs, etc.
Is there anything I should know before I start buying? I dont plan on reselling these, but you never know what will happen in the future.
Do people like nfl helmets signed on the left or right? Is there a sweet spot on a helmet? Are college helmets more popular/valuable?
Mini bats and basketballs seem pretty obvious, but any advice would be appreciated.

If you're just doing this for you, buy what you like. Buy the things that catch your eye, if it's a favorite player or team, it really won't matter where it's signed on the item just as long as you get your hands on the item you want.
If something does come up in the future and you may need to sell, people just look for the best deals, I don't know if there are anything special that you necessarily have to worry about.
Just be careful of the COA's, make sure the item you're getting is from a reputable company and always always always do your research on what an athlete's signature looks like.
I have purchased from people that don't have a big name COA company on it and it's legit, you just have to be able to recognize the slightest variations in the signature.
If you ever have any questions about real/fake feel free to ask the board members, someone should always be able to help you out.
If you're looking for that "sweet spot" on the helmet, the top right above the logo is a good spot if being displayed and staring down at it. You can still see the helmet as well as the auto.
