Will PSA grade napkins?

I have 4 napkins that were autographed for my wife years ago. I have 2 signed by Dan Marino, 1 signed by Joe Montana and the other signed by John Elway. She was at a venue where all of them were and they were signed in front of her so I know they are authentic. Just wondering if PSA would grade/authenticate these and what it might cost and if they are worth grading?
Thanks,
Bobby

    I believe you can get them encapsulated just like index cards, checks, album pages and cut signatures. Cost a bit but might be worth it if you want them better protected. I would advise against getting the authentication sticker placed on the item itself if you go the authentication without encapsulation route, so go for the full LOA and have the sticker placed on the LOA.

    Yea, I would rather have them encapsulated. Are these sigs worth the cost though? Right now I just have them framed and I bought their rookie cards to put in each frame.

    They are not worth a whole lot monetarily but if they mean a lot to you and you would rather have them encapsulated then it’s worth it to you, especially if you are just wanting to keep them and not reselling them.

    The cost of getting them encapsulated is a lot, I think maybe $50 or so each but it’s been a while since I checked. A regular authentication is like $30 if you are only sending in a handful of items otherwise they do bulk rate at like $10 each if they are having a promotion and you don’t mind getting a card (instead of full letter) with authentication sticker ON THE ITEM (which very much bothers me). So yeah, it’s expensive in most cases. Probably costs more each to authenticate than signature on napkin is worth. Since you KNOW they are authentic and you are not selling them I wouldn’t bother with authenticating.
