Home Autographs Forum

Can I get some help with these Autos?

Hello all! I recently came into possession of several unique on card autographs to include Michael Jordan, Ja Morant, Curry, Luka, Jokic, Giannis, Lillard, and one Burrow. I've heard some conflicting things about them so I figured I might turn to an actual forum instead of the facebook guru's on how to proceed forward. So all have a COA sticker on the back of the card from companies such as InPersonAuthetications, Red Carpet Authentics, and VS Autograph Authentication. In terms of validity, there isn't much to be found research wise for these companies. Of course the best way to truly find out if these are authetic signatures would be to proceed with PSA/BGS DNA Auto Authentics. I tallied up the total and it would be close to about $1700 in PSA fees at the economy price to get the cards both graded/autos authenticated. (Unless I sign up for the membership and go value and claim the cards top value is less than $500).

So my problem is that $1700 is a step price to gamble to see if these are legit autos or not. Would kinda suck to submit the lot only for PSA to laugh, take my money, and say they are all fake.

I figured I'd post them here for ya'll to take a look at and see what you think? Authentic or no? If you do think they are authentic, how would you proceed to getting them graded? I've seen them all types of ways, only auto grade, just auto authentication, card grade with auto authentication, or the whole 9 years for both card/auto grade. I don't think any of the cards would come back 10s if that helps. I would like to pump as much value into them as possible before storing them away in my vault.

Thank you in advanced for any/all help! Happy collecting!

It won't let me post images on my comment, only asks for URL but wont drop it down into the comment. So please see links

    If you don't hear any action here you can try posting on the Sports Forum.

    I am in the same boat. I bought a Mickey Mantle years ago off of cable shopping and I need to dig it out and have it looked at.

    I am no expert, but just a couple things I noticed that seem off to me specifically with the Jordan cards. First never seen him sign just MJ, which quick glance through looked like these ones mostly were. Also Jordan has a deal with Upper Deck for signed cards still, although that's not to say someone couldn't have gotten these in person and had them authenticated. Which leads me to the stickers on the back, hard to see well enough in the photos but is the sticker on the back of the actual card or just the top loaders? Looks like it's on the card itself, which seems strange that a company would put something that could devalue the card just to prove its a real signature, but again submitting photos for authentication you get some authenticators (even big name ones) that stick the auth on the photo since where else does it have to go? Also the loops on the M aren't as tight as he usually signs, which yeh with some athletes you get a wider variety of signatures, but remember Jordan is a perfectionist and I feel that shows even down to his signature, as you look around at his signatures they tend to all look verrry similar.

    With all that taken into consideration, if you really want to give it the true test at a more established authenticator, you don't necessarily need to send in every single card to test out, could try a couple and see what happens and if you get the thumbs up then send the rest in with more confidence. Good luck!

    The Luka and Jokic autos are not authentic IMHO... there are some nuances about them that make me pretty comfortable I. Challenging there veracity.

    My opinion take 5 or 7 cards and send them in for authentication
