 In the international world of collecting autographs, PADAH is unique.  Its goal is to ensure collectors of autographs and signed books have a place to go to acquire genuine autographs. The members of PADAH are the true professionals in the business. It would be a very rare experience that any collector would have an unpleasant situation dealing with one of its members.  PADAH is free of corruption and politics!  There is no money involved in PADAH, no collection of membership dues and no hiding of yearly accounting reports. PADAH is operated by a handful of volunteers. Membership is FREE.

                                For more information about being a member email:  skoschal@aol.com

Should a collector have an unpleasant encounter with a seller outside of the PADAH family, we cannot help you get a refund. However, we may be able to give you guidance through our COA Reference Library where records are maintained of those who sell forgeries on a regular basis and listings of the many sellers who have been removed from other autograph organizations.

Most importantly, many collectors and most dealers are aware of the thousands of serious mistakes made by those companies who claim they can authenticate autographs.  Should any collector purchase an autographed item from a member of PADAH and is ignorant enough to waste money on having the item authenticated by the ABC type authenticating companies, PADAH professionals are NOT required to issue a refund.  A guess or an opinion from one of those companies is basically useless. In almost all cases the collector will not know who examined their autograph and will be unable to find out who did so when contacting the company. In most cases it really does not matter.  The bill of sale from a PADAH member is a collectors only legal document!

Before purchasing an autograph,  look at the updated monthly list of PADAH members  on www.theautographplanet.com or just look for the PADAH logo on the dealers web site.


 These are autograph professionals who research their items and will honor their guarantee of authenticity.


The following professional autograph dealers, auction houses and book dealers who offer signed books do their diligence authenticating the autographs they sell.  


 There are dealers who may have been inadvertently left off the list.  May we hear from you for possible submission?

Thank you, Steve, and all the best.

You and your fellow members of PADAH deserve a big round of applause for bringing integrity and honesty to this field of collecting.    Jim D, N.C.

Steve, it seems everything you touch turns to gold. This list is precious, no need to go anywhere else. A safe place to purchase autographs.    Mike J.  Iowa

Steve, the last four things I bought you authenticated them as not genuine. I learned my lesson and will only purchase from members of PADAH.”  Mark L, Florida
