  • what is a Muhammad Ali psa/dna signed cut worth ? I just bought one for $145.   thanks.

  • Ah,, give them a break. They only screwed up on 2,000 autographs in one day.  That's not all that out of line.

    Jameis Winston says some autographs are forgeries, source tells Post

    Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston identified scores of items bearing his signature as forgeries, a source told the Palm Beach Post.

    Winston sat down with FSU compliance officials one month ago to look at the memorabilia being sold online bearing his signature after ESPN reported that thousands of authenticated items were for sale. He was able to point out many signatures that he said were forged and many items that had his signature that he knew he had not signed.

    “When he looked at the initial website mentioned by ESPN, he looked at multiple things and said that wasn’t his signature,” said thesource.

    Winston viewed items such as jerseys, mini-helmets and photos bearing his signature.

    ESPN reported Tuesday that one authentication company is questioning the legitimacy of thousands of items being sold with Winston’s signature.

    The items in question were authenticated by James Spence Authentication. A competitor, PSA/DNA, did not authenticate those items after questioning whether Winston actually signed them.

    The report said a Florida memorabilia dealer was hoping to get Winston to sign a large number of items last winter. Even after Winston refused, the dealer produced a batch of items with Winston’s name signed to them. No witnesses to Winston signing the items has been found.

    ESPN found more than 2,000 certified Winston autographs on JSA’s website last month and raised the question as to whether Winston was paid for the signatures, which would be an NCAA violation.

    Five days after ESPN’s initial report, Florida State released a statement saying it had no information or evidence that Winston was paid.

    Since arriving at Florida State in 2012, Winston has autographed thousands of items. He has signed thousands at one sitting during fan days or while attending award ceremonies following his Heisman Trophy and national championship-winning 2013 season. He also sometimes would sign hundreds a day while he was a member of the FSU baseball team.

    Winston has said he tries to avoid signing multiple items for the same person and turns down requests from people whom he believes are dealers.

  • What would you talk about Jeffrey if you supported fraud?  Not about yourself for sure.  Of course they will not talk about big news because it makes them look stupid for supporting fraud.  They will continue to support fraud because that's what they do.  They need intervention and that's what this site does.  It shares the truth and they hate that!  Rock on Jerry Lee Lewis!

  • Brad, like my dad told me as a child... "it's worth what somebody will pay you for it"

    That said, you should be able to get 50-100 dollars for it

  • I have a JSA Michael Jordan vintage autograph magazine page, with inscription My Sincere Best Wishes to you, Michael Jordan.  it is a 5x6 page with a nice inscription and autograph.  what is that worth do you think ?  thanks.

  • This is a question that I have asked many times myself.  How do these authentication company's have so many examples to compare autographs to?

    They all have said, that you need to have 20-30 or more examples of a person (s) signature, signed in different situations and times to compare to.

    With that being said, how do you have that many of a 18 and 19 year old college student?

    TO me,(and in my opinion) this is a prime example of authenticating the person submitting the items, not the autograph itself.
