Hello from the DugOut, my sports memorabilia/Autograph booth.
I just opened up shop here and would like to tell you a little something about it.
I want you to feel confortable and confident about doing business at the DugOut.
If you have ANY problems please contact me immediately. I will bend over backward to make it right by you.
I have same day shipping if at all possible, never later than next day. Shipping includes tracking and insurance.
I stole the following (in part) from a google search:
“A Mickey Mantle signed 8×10 photo sells for about $150-$300. Price will vary based on condition and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Photo composition and appeal will affect the price as well. Part of the value will be determined by how well the photo displays the signature. The type of ink used, and how it stands out in contrast to the photograph will also affect the price. Sharpie would be the most preferred for a photo. Larger and more desired picture pictures could sell for more. Mickey Mantle signed a lot of autographs. One of the most sought after signatures, there are also a lot of fakes on the market. The numbers are alarming. This is why to get top dollar for an autograph it should be properly authenticated.” Truth be known... The REAL worth of an item is what the potential customer is willing to pay. I do a lot of business while others hold out for absurd prices.
The majority of my collection is authenticated by Nicholas R Burczyk.
Dr Nicholas Burczyk is a trained Certified, Court Appointed Forensic EXPERT. He is a forensic document examiner with a PHD in handwriting analysis. Dr Burczyk was employed by a major autograph procurer in the 1980’s and 1990’s to view autographs and render professional opinions which would stand up in any Court of Law.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
