We obtain our autographed items a few different ways....
1. In Store / In Person signings. Players come to our store for an autograph signing, either public or private, or we attend a signing elsewhere. We have over 15 Exclusive Players that we work with and handle all their sports memorabilia, game used and appearances.
2. We only purchase authentic merchandise from a select group of trusted autograph vendors that we work very closely with to ensure each and every item is authentic.
3. We prefer to work through agency relationships - we do not chase players on the streets and all of our autographs are obtained directly from the players during sit down signings or events.
Fan Cave Authentication:
If we acquired the autograph in person, it will include the official Fan Cave Sports Authentication COA + Matching Hologram. Our COA includes: The date the item was signed, a tamper proof hologram on both the COA & the autographed item along with a matching number on both to ensure our authentication is specific to your item.
Purchased Merchandise Authentication:
If we purchased the item from one of our reputable partners, their COA and/or hologram will be included. These include MLB, St. Louis Blues, Steiner Sports, Fanatics, etc.
No matter the case, your item is always 200% guaranteed to pass any third party authentication such as JSA & PSA authentication. Please ask an associate for more details on our guarantee.
Third Party Authentication:
Unfortunately we are not authorized to authenticate your personal items. If you are looking to authenticate an item you purchased elsewhere or received, we recommend visiting either http://www.PSACard.com or http://www.SpenceLOA.com.
We also work with both companies to set up "days in our store" where both vendors will take items for inspection and authentication.
