you should ask to see the credentials of there so called "experts" before paying to have anything authenticated.

Not sure at what your getting at.....I know where it is taking place at and it is a shop of a pretty well respected person in the Houston area....

You can drop off or wait and watch while they do it......then you get all the other sutff......DNA dob, sticker on the item, COA or Letter depending on who the auto is of, and registered on their database.

Same thing as sending it off to California, this is just cheaper and a quicker turnaround.

what i'm getting at.........

is the person a handwriting expert? is he trained in forensics? or is he simply comparing the auto to a known authentic auto by looks? what is the process involved?

the only reason i say this is because there have been instance where in person autos have been declared as fake by the PSA/DNA authenticators.

I am sure there are instances where legit autos get turned away and some fakes probably make it through......

Someone can never be really sure if its real unless they get the item signed in person by themselves.

Though with a 3rd party (ie. PSA/DNA, TRISTAR, GAI) saying an item is authentic does make the value increase.
