I'm looking to purchase an Andre Ethier game used bat (autographed if possible). Where would be the best online sites to keep an eye on besides ebay?

There is a pretty cool auction site, myccsa.com, that does auctions once a month. They do about 4000 items every month. I just signed up last month and was lucky enough to win three bids:a signed 4x6 of Joe Dimaggio, a game used jersey of Xavier Hernandez (1994) and a paul pierce signed floor board, all for under $50 together. Not sure what they have this month but you could check them every month and see when a Either bat shows up. The site was on a banner from this site and they are totally legit. Check it out.

Thanks. I checked it out. It's hard to find stuff on there, but I'll look into it! Looks kind of like they mostly have retired player stuff.

CCSA is Coach's Corner and they are known for selling fraudulent items, I would stay far away from them. You will notice almost everything they sell is authenticated by Chris Morales or STAT Authentic, who are employees/affiliated with Coach's Corner. There is a reason you got a Joe D signature for under $50, it is fake. I would bet that if you sent it in to PSA/DNA or JSA, it would be rejected.

If the original poster wants an Ethier game used bat, I would contact the store at Dodger Stadium as I know they sell game used bats. But I would never buy anything from Coach's Corner auctions. Here is a great article about their shady business:

Thanks for the info and the article! I didn't even think about contacting the Dodger store. Seems so obvious.
Much appreciated!

Thanks for the info, makes me wonder! The article was also very good. However, the stuff I bid on and won was all authenticated by PSA. I don't trust many company besides them. You do make a good point though with using the dodger store!
