Well I was doing my daily rounds on ebay yesterday and I came across something that caught my eye. I ended up buying a 3x5 index card auto of Emmitt Smith for about $18. The item is certified by jsa. I was thinking I would pick up a 11x14 photo of Smith and have the photo and card framed. You guys think I got a steal?

I would say you got one heck of a steal on that!! Yes, I would do the same thing you are thinking about. Framed and matted that would look very nice.

I would say you overpaid a tad. I was watching an 8x10 of emmitt but I didnt get win it and it only sold for $16.51 Dlvd. But NTL $18 for any kind of Emmitt is a great price. Even $18 for a fake Emmitt Auto lol jk

The 8x10 that ended for $16.51 was it certified by any big time legit company? I would think it ended that cheap because the coa came from bully bobs card shop lol. Oh well I figured a Smith auto certified by jsa for $18 was a great deal.

I would say you got a good deal, it would cost $20 (before shipping) just to have JSA authenticate the signature! I like your idea of framing the sig card with an 8x10, should look very nice.

I dropped off the idex card along with this photo http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300331063206&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=3&campid=5335896190&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dl l%3FViewItem%26item%3D300331063206%26ssPageName%3D STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT) and this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110422856778&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=3&campid=5335896190&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dl l%3FViewItem%26item%3D110422856778%26ssPageName%3D STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT) to be framed. The shop is the only one around and he told me I should have it back in a week or two. Once I get it in I will post pics.

Update: Got a call today that it was ready. The pic does not do this thing justice. It looks amazing. I also included a couple of pics of other things I have picked up.

Looks great!

Is that helmet a Forte auto?

If so, I'm very interested
