Found these and many more amongst the posters and prints I bought from the Hobby Store. Am I screwed without the COA and if so how much does it cost to get prints authenticated. The Gwynn is hand numbered 07/500 The Hank Aaron says nothing on it. Any suggestions or info on value would be appreciated.

If you're looking to sell, then it'll be tough to do so without a COA from somewhere. As much as I bash the authentication process on something they didn't witness being signed, getting it done does help with the selling process.

You could always list the two items on ebay with crazy BINs....then use the PSA/DNA ebay auction verification service. They look at the auction and tell you the likely hood the auto is real. Cost is escaping me at the moment but may be an insurance policy if the actually authentication is pricey and possible they come back as fake sigs.

kev was that tony gwynn obtained IP?

because his sig was involved in a huge fake memorabilia ring that was broken up several years ago and i know gwynn signs different pieces differently (im trying to find the article where he talks about it)... he signs a ball with a diff color and diff sig differently than he does with flat pieces or bats...

but if it was obtained in person who much are you moving it for.

just curious

I think they would still sell without a COA, but would sell much better with one. PSA/DNA charges $30 for Aaron and $20 for Gwynn, while JSA charges $25 for Aaron and $20 for Gwynn.

You might check their calendars and see if they will be at any shows near you, since postage both ways will add up. I live in Texas and don't have much of a chance to do authentications at shows, but JSA did show up to the TriStar show in Houston a few months ago, and I see they will be there again early next year.

These were both from the Hobby Shop that I bought out. The autos are pen to paper. I will dig through I think I have more of these and some other Padres.

I have about 8 or 10 different pieces autographed by Gwynn and never really noticed or knew that he did it. I got a few in person and bought others. I have a color print that is signed in blue sharpie, my baseballs are black pen, rookie card in blue sharpie, bats in black and silver sharpie. I can't remember the jersey but it is an UD one.

Kevin, as for the prices on your pieces. The Gwynn, if it is real, his autographs don't go for much. I don't think it would be worth getting it authenticated unless you would keep it yourself because I would guess it would go for around $20-$30 on ebay. The Aaron should go for closer to $40.

The prices are crazy when you consider how much they charge for their autographs.

he signs some with and without loops in the 'Y'(for example).. in that article he said it helps HIM to tell which ones are fake and which aren't.... (still looking for article)

This might be the article:

Tony Gwynn memorabilia has long been popular with sports fans and collectors. : North County Times - Californian

Very interesting article.

EBay 130126415998 ( by the way how do I post the link to an auction) Captain is going to pissed at my laziness)

Found this the Auto is similar but not as wide as mine. This 1 is numbered 33/500 and mine is 7/500. I wonder if he maybe signed the first 50. I have a ton of stuff from C. Paluso and that seems to be the case. THe first 50 are artist proffs signed by him and whoever is on the print. I have 3 of the baseball ironmen signed by Garvey those have COA's.
