Kevin’s Weekly Collecting Tips & FAQ

Philosphy on the value of a Letter of Authenticity (continued from last issue):

Is it important to get an LOA on an item from a third-party authenticator?
Â
It may be if you have a question about an item’s authenticity and you want someone else to weigh in on it, or if you put greater trust in the opinion of the third-party than you do in the source from whom you acquired your item. In the end, you are paying a fee to get someone else’s opinion, in the same way that a patient may or may not seek a second opinion from a doctor. It may or may not be warranted or worth the added expense. Keep in mind that the most important factor in making an autograph purchase of an item you can’t authenticate yourself is the reputation of the person from whom you make the purchase.
Â
And remember that an “LOA” is really nothing more than an “LOO”-a Letter Of Opinion on the authenticity of the item, according to the LOA’s author. Many people have approached me over the years to provide LOA’s on the items in their own collections that they had signed themselves. I always explain to them that there is no need to pay me or anyone else to authenticate items they know are authentic. And they are surprised when I explain that they don’t need such paperwork to sell their collections. Authentic autographs don’t need associated LOA’s-the autographs will stand on their own merits. LOA’s only help when there is a question about something by informing would-be buyers that the item/items in question is/are authentic according to the opinion of the author of the corresponding LOA.

Thank you for choosing Quality Autographs as one of your premier sources for building your sports autograph collection and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Sincerely,
