I'm going to purchase a couple of 8x10 autographed ones. What I'm wondering is how you think they should be framed / displayed. Are there frames especially made to frame these? Any help on the topic would be appreciated.

Also I see almost every 8x10 comes with a CoA, but can anyone stand behind a CoA? I mean it seems like every ebay seller has their own CoA?

Look at the bottom of this pic at the two Urban Meyer Auto'd 8x10's. They have these frames at my local Walmart and they are only like $10 each. They also sell already layered matting at Walmart here too! Buy the two dimensional already cut matting, then buy a frame for it. Nice stuff. Here is the pic, look at the bottom, these frames are already to go and I like them.

Nice collection you got there. I live in Sweden so if I was to buy anything from the US it would have to be from the Internet. However those look like regular frames and I'm sure I can find something simular around here.

They are regular frames, just bigger than 8x10 and have white matting in it to give it a deeper look. Thanks for the kind words on my collection.. That isn't even 25% of my entire memorabilia collection. LOL!

This is the better way to display them
I went to have a Terry Bradshaw 8x10 framed and it was something like 80 bucks!

stick with reputable companies when it comes to autos. i'd say 95+% of the autos on ebay are fake. here are a few companies that are legit

www.steinersports.com (http://www.steinersports.com)
www.upperdeck.com (http://www.upperdeck.com)

im sure there are a few others but dont waste your money on fake autos. do some research on who you are buying from

UD in 2005 put out a product called Portaits that are 8x 10, I have several of them in frames.

I always buy my frames for 8x10's at Kohl's, they already come with the matting and they're always on sale. Here's what the frames look like:

Thanks for the replies, this is what I purchased, Carl Banks and Harry Carson, now only missing Taylor and the fearful trio is complete.

They make frames that hold (4) 8x10's in the same frame. At the Football Spectacular, there is a guy who makes REALLY nice frames and he has custom matting you can buy too.
