I know if I had it and I didn't 100 percent ligit it would kill me lol.awful risky so I would pass on it. Tough call I know exactly how your feeling. I have some Steelers Autographed cards and until I decide whether or not to have them authenticated I will never know if they are real or not. It's been bothering me for 2 years now.

    I know what you mean. I'm an overthinker, so I need 100% peace of mind. He has a ton of other autographs/jerseys in frames that he's gotten all from this one guy, and they all seem legit. That's what makes me think it's real. He has a very nice framed LeBron jersey autographed from the friend and an autographed 2016 Cavs ball signed by the team from him also. But who really knows. It's only $60, but I need that peace of mind.

    That's being wise about it. I Know it's gotta suck because you really want it.

    You said you got a quick opinion. What did that QO say?

    Stuff like this, you almost have to view it as gambling. Don't spend more than you can afford to lose, and be happy if you hit the jackpot... Just understand that you won't hit a jackpot every time you play.

    I got lucky the one time I bought a "too good to be true" auto. No certification at all Mantle ball inscribed "No.7" for $100. Glad I finally got around to getting it certified.

    Good luck!

    It came back as likely not authentic, I ran very far away from it!

    when im in these situations I get a written money back gurantee. I had one auto that was not legit. I got my money back but I was still out the authentication fee.

    Ask them if it doesn't pass authentication then you get a full refund plus cost of authentication.

    Most sellers do not offer the authentication fee back because sometimes companies get it wrong.
