Jersey is the best auto'd item in my opinion, a ball is cool but doesn't stand out as much, and a photo is boring.
Here's one way I have some of my autographed balls:


2004 GT Conv't

MODS:
FLOWS, 3.73'S, BASSANI O/R X-PIPE, ACCUFAB 75MM TB, PLENUM, AND VORTECH V-3 SUPERCHARGED

A jersey would be good, however it would have to be an authentic jersey. The kind that cost $250+. For Football stuff, I've always liked signed Authentic Helmets.

Whatever you get the autograph on, make sure of two things:
1.) the object signed is authentic (regulation official Wilson NFL Football, authentic helmet, etc.)
2.) certificate of authenticity with a Serial Number. Actually call the authentication company and make sure the Serial Number matches the object before you buy it. You should be able to make a call to a 1-800 number on your cell phone in the store to verify.

I was told by a guy that works for a Auction house that the object signed values the signature more than the signature itself most of the time.

I was looking to buy one online. I'm guessing thats a bad isea. I like to stay out of shop and malls during the holidays if all possible. Is there a site that you can refer that would have authentic stuff?

I have looked at many sites but i dont want to pay 250-400 for something that is fake.

Online is pretty much a crap shoot. I don't really have any idea about reputable sites/estores. At least on EBay, the seller ratings help. But no matter what, an authentication serial number is key. It's not 100% certifiable that the item you're getting is actually the real thing, but it helps.

PSA/DNA is pretty much the top authentication service. http://www.psadna.com/

If $200 for something fake is OK, I can sign just about anything. Want 2 or 3 itmes?

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

Yeah, don't purchase an autographed Roethlisberger hat for the "Pittsburgh Seelers." Thanks, Steve!

You could go to Vegas, there are several shops out there, or a little closer to home there is one in Grapevine Mills mall that has authentic stuff, with the paper that says it is, etc.

Or www.dacardworld.com is another good one. Ebay you can find the best deals in my opinion, just look for legit COA'S!

Upper Deck
PSA
BGS or Beckett
GAI

are all legit ones

You can even find stuff on Costco's Website!

Thanks for your help. I guess im going to take a xanex and go to Grapevine Mills and hope i don't kill someone in the process. Either that or they will just be getting Mav's tickets.

Jason doesn't like sports, meat, tits, or Dave Matthews. But somehow he's still an alright guy.
