Quick View Opinion Autograph Service for any signed item.
- 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 IN FULL 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. If the item has just one signature then the cost is £7.95 if the item is multi signed then you can use the drop down menu on the PayPal button for that.
Once paid you will receive an email from us allowing you to send us all the details you have regarding the item. Please do not send screen grabs, if its an ebay item then the best option is to send a direct link to the item, it does not matter if it has already ended.
Provided that we can see some decent images of the item and any other details you may have, 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 already 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!
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.
Please note. We do not offer opinions on, or authenticate football shirts, boots or balls because of the very high rate of of fakes.
Please be aware that this is not a written authentication service, its an email opinion only based on the details that you can supply. We do offer full authentication for any item we consider authentic at an extra charge after we have seen it via this service.
You only need to click the 'Buy Now' box above and please note that the cost is per signature and not per item, pay via card or PayPal. Once paid you will receive an email from us requesting any details we need. 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, we also 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 all 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 £10.95 and Rest of the World £14.95 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 unique Autographs.co.uk Certificate of Authenticity. Every COA includes a numbered hologram with the matching numbered one attached to the item itself. The COA is an important document relating 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. A COA issued without those details must surely be worthless?
