Quick View Opinion Autograph Service for any item with one signature.
- Not sure about that autograph you have purchased?
- Unsure about the dealer or website?
- Just need a quick yes or no as to authenticity?
- Think you have been sold a fake?
PLEASE READ THIS PAGE BEFORE PAYING! Then this is what you need. We offer a 'Quick View' yes/no opinion via email only for any item you may have purchased or want to purchase via a website or elsewhere including ebay. This is for an item with one signature only, if the item has more than one signature then simply pay for two and that will cover you for any single multi signed item. Provided that you can provide some decent images of the item and any other details then we will give you a yes or no as to whether the item is likely authentic, PLUS any tips regarding the purchase which may include its market value, or what you can do if you have purchased the item and its not authentic! Please note. We cannot work from screen grabs or small or poor quality images. Only send images as JPG's.
PLEASE NOTE. we only offer this service via email, we cannot authenticate items on the phone, and we only offer this service AFTER you have paid! Once you have paid for the Quick Opinion you will need to send us good quality images of the item and signatures, plus as much information as you have about the item, where purchased, website details etc, the more you can tell us, the more we may be able to help you. We will not give you an opinion on any item unless payment is made first!
Our opinion is based on over 25 years of full time autograph experience (plus over 15 years exprience on ebay), and in most cases we can give you our opinion within a few hours (but please allow for the time difference between countries!). We are not a company that is unknown within this business, we don't make unproven claims as to how good we are, nor do we hide who we are. We are very well known amongst all UK dealers and know what we are talking about, and our claims can be easily checked.
Any opinion is given directly by Garry King, a very well respected name within the autograph business, and one with more full time experience in dealing with autographs than most. Garry has provided expert witness testimony for both the Police and Trading Standards, written many articles on autographs, and been written about by both local and national newspapers and magazines. It should also be noted that this is an opinion service, and any opinion should not be considered as an 'authentication' which can only be done by seeing the item itself.
Garry has also been featured on The One Show, Inside Out, and The Real Hustle, and has also been featured as the expert on two edtions of Fake Britain about fake autographs for the BBC. Garry has also filmed for editions of Pawn Stars UK and Posh Pawn and Posh Pawnbrokers as well as a recent edition the BBC program Rip off Britain.
For each item submitted (you will need to email us full details of each item) you will receive by return, normally within 12 hours, or much sooner if during normal office hours, a Yes or No answer as to whether you should consider buying based on its authenticity, condition and price, plus any tips that could be of use to you, including a value where possible.
Please note. We do not authenticate football shirts, boots or balls or 3D items such as Funko Pops or items that are framed unless removed from the frame.
This is not a written authentication service, its an email opinion only based on the details that you can supply, although we do offer full authentication for any item we consider authentic at an extra charge after we have seen it via this service.
Just click the box, pay via card or PayPal, and then email us the item details for our quick view opinion. The more you can tell us the more we can help, so be sure to give us details of where, when, how etc. PLEASE NOTE To keep the cost of this as low as possible we are unable to answer questions or offer this service via the phone, so please do not call, only email. Please do not send screen grabs, and only images as JPG's please.
We believe we take authenticity more seriously than any other retailer of signed products anywhere. So firstly we only select products from the very best independant dealers to display on this site. This means that every item has already been checked and verified as authentic before our own team check it again before it is offered to you here.
Every item is then issued with its own unique COA that both confirms its authenticity and confirms that if it is shown to be non authentic at any time in the future, you will be offered either a full refund, or similar product of the same value. Full details can be seen on our Unique Guarantee page.
I am afraid that we are not as yet Amazon! We are just a small company and we do not have robots to move stock around, or fully automatic tracking systems to keep you updated 24 hours a day. But we do however care about our customers and a real person will always answer the phone to help with any question, and we try to answer any emails within a few hours but only during normal working hours!
All items are always correctly packed for safe delivery to you, wherever they have to go. We can ship to almost every country in the world, and most items will be shipped within 24 hours of an order. Any item that may need special framing or mounting may take longer. We use Royal Mail Special Delivery for most UK post and all items are sent tracked and insured. Overseas mail may be delivered by DHL or similar dependant on the location and size.
UK insured and signed for post is free on orders over £100.
Orders under £100 are £7.95 and are always sent tracked and signed for your security.
Orders for signed photos etc outside of the UK but within the EU are normally £14.95 and Rest of the World £18.95 but framed items can be more depending on the size and weight of the item and normally start at around £25, so we may need to quote you for any item to any country before dispatch.
Every Item comes with our Autographs.co.uk Certificate of Authenticity included. Every COA includes a numbered hologram with the matching numbered one attached to the item itself. The COA is an important document realting to the item and should always be kept safe.
Every COA is dated and signed by a director of the company and printed on high quality paper, and our full contact details including phone number is printed onto each one.
