I just recently got back from Chicago after attending the Premier Collectible Conference and Exhibition and wanted to say that it was a real eye opener about what this business/hobby could possibly be. It was the classiest and one of the best run conventions I’ve ever attended. My applause goes out to Ryan Friedman at AuctionReport.com and Doug Allen of Mastro Auctions for putting on such an amazing event. Also, We have just updated our website. Check out our great news additions.
I was one of the dealers set up at the show, along with many auction houses. I spoke on a panel of autograph experts that included Kevin Keating, Ron Gordon, and Jimmy Spence. We got some great feedback, but hopefully they’ll throw some really tough questions at us next year. The one thing I’d like to stress is that when you are making a purchase from an autograph dealer such as myself, you’re also buying a guarantee that the material purchased is authentic.
When you’re buying from a random dealer with a third party COA (which is really a letter of opinion) you are buying just that; the letter. Before making your purchase, ask the dealer if they will give you your money back if your piece turns out to be bogus. Remember, we know where we’re sourcing material. Often times a third party is doing a peripheral review and then an opinion is rendered.

This is just the second autograph of his we’ve ever seen.
