Neil Armstrong Autograph Value?

I have a very nice authenticated Neil Armstrong autograph. The authenticity is via a signed certificate. The PSA site charges $250 to verify and seal the signature. Knowing this, can anyone point me to a place that I can get a value for the signature?

    Who issued the certificate? 🤔

    I would recommend getting it authenticated (and preferably slabbed) by a more accepted and known authentication company such as Beckett, PSA/DNA, or JSA. Once you know it’s authentic according to them it can bring over $500 slabbed.

    I'm a long-time astronaut autograph collector, and I have to say that I do not like that signature at all. It looks too slowly drawn; and on the last stroke (the "g"), it looks like three connected straight lines, as opposed to one curving line.

    Personally, I wouldn't waste the money sending it to PSA.

    This will save the thread creator a lot of money. No need at all to send it off if it’s thought to be fake and there is a general consensus. Your opinion seems to be pretty solid so if it were mine, it would be enough for me to skip the expense of getting it authenticated. I would be disappointed though if I spent a lot on it.

    Usually the reasons to get an autograph authenticated is if it was being sold/traded or the owner wanted it for insurance purposes.

    Steve Zarrelli can do a quick opinion by email for around $15 or $20. He is respected for space autographs. It's not a formal authentication but it is a hurdle to clear before dropping more money. Of course, he does full authentications also.

    Yes, Steve is the best in the business for space autographs. Get an email opinion from him before sending it to PSA or any other TPA.

    Not only that...Steve only charges $100 for a Letter of Authenticity on Neil Armstrong and his LOA's are certainly more respected in the space collecting community than other TPGs. Space and aviation autographs are the only genres he authenticates.

    Did you have your Armstrong checked out?
