Some third party authentication companies will glance at your autographed memorbillia and instantly tell you it's not genuine, but not before charging you a huge fee to do so. 

Make Sure You Do Not Fall Victim to Third Party Authentication Companies.  

Buying autographs on eBay could be a good thing for the professional dealer or seasoned collector.  For EVERYONE else it's a mine field.  We're going to illustate a football autograph on a 2023 fairly new card.  We don't know if it'sgenuine or not so we go with our feelings.  Or we can do something real dumb and pay for an authentiation fee from one of those companies who claim to authenticate autographs. That would be a very foolish move. Spending good money on what could probably be a bad guess, isn't smart.

Let's look at the description of this newly printed card.12399752659?profile=RESIZE_710x

#1-  $29.49  If the seller thinks this is a good price, then why offer "a best  offer"?

#2- Basically an unlimited amount was available. Sold 97 of these cards, better hurry only three left!

#3- Why no returns, does the seller know something that we don't?

#4- The seller possibly had a cost for the card, a cost for the autograph, and a cost for the plastic holder, a cost to put it on ebay, and a fee from PayPal when sold, and they accept your offer for $20 or less, how's money being made?

#5- NO RETURNS??????????? Smells somewhat, I think we'll pass.

#6- Use common sense and be educated before dealing on eBay for autographs.  Many collectors and even some small time dealers got burnt many times, thay are gone, no longer collecting or buying autographs.
