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

END

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
 
Mr. Koschal, this was my second purchase from a PADAH professional. I am very happy with these club members.  Joseph H. Italy
 
Mr. K., you've done it again, helped make our hobby safe from the handful of undesirables in this hobby, love my latest purchase. Marjory S., England
 
Mr. K "....as a past member of the U.A.C.C., PADAH is like night and day, I really appreciate the PADAH list of professionals, I have vowed to only purchase from their members and as of today have had no problems. Finally, a breath of fresh air..." Carol P., GA
 
Steve, "using your authentication service is heavenly. Tired of paying up to $150.00 using others in the past and finding out their opinion is wrong is disheartening. I really appreciate you flat rate no matter what the value of the autograph."  Julius, Amsterdam
 
STEPHEN  "I don't know what came over me, but I decided to go to one of those ABC type authenticating companies to get a second opinion on my Babe Ruth autograph and paid $400.  They failed it, since then two PADAH members who I offered to sell it to said it was genuine.  Never again will I use those ABC type companies....."  Kevin M., California
 
Mr. Koschal. "I purchased three autographs from two different PADAH members.  I have to see for myself what this authenticating scam was all about.  I contacted PAAS and Beckett for a second opinion and told them what website to go to and look at some of the autographs.  Both companies stated that the three autographs were not likely to pass authentication.  All the negative stories I have read about the authenticating companies have to be true. Live and learn............."  Juan C. Puerto Rico
 
Steve.  "...can't tell you enough how much money and trouble I have avoided by using your authentication service, here are 12 more items I need a COA.  You have one great reputation here in Europe, keep up the good work...."  Gunter C. Germany
 
Mr. K.  "...your list of PADAH dealers is priceless.  I personally have saved thousands of dollars by almost purchasing an item from someone not on this list......Eric K. Poland
 
Steve "I have only been purchasing autographs from PADAH dealers and have had absolutely no problems. Dealing with PADAH sellers is just like having an autograph insurance policy. My hats off to you...."  Brian M.  New Hampshire
 
Mr. K. "So glad the hobby of autographs finally has a list of dealers a collector can trust....." Michelle L. Brazil
