The “Preferred Autograph Dealers” is a group of International Professional Autograph Dealers.The list of members is quite impressive.

The library contains a massive collection of peddlers of autographs who sell spurious autographs and issue a worthless COA’s.It is highly recommended to only support members of “PADAH.”Members of “PADAH” do not have to issue a refund based on the incompetent guesses of high profile companies who claim they can authenticate autographs.Should collectors choose to deal with those outside this list, which is updated regularly, “PADAH” will not be able to help you should you have dealt with a rogue seller of autographs.Professional dealers who may not be listed as members of “PADAH” please email:THE OFFICIAL LISTof Preferred Autograph Dealers and Auction Houses“PADAH”May 2019The following list, very carefully put together, is of those autograph dealers and auction houses that pass muster in the COA Reference Library.
