Default jersery authenticated..

I could use some advice on where to send in a jersey to get it authenticated and is it worth getting authenticated. It was singed by a few Pittsburgh Penguins Crosby , Malkin, Staal, and a few others.. Thanks for any help...

Too bad they're all on a Malkin jersey.

I didnt know people DO this. I would be getting auto's all the time then! I thought once they sign it it becomes garbage because I wouldnt be able to prove it and I HATE those people who walk around the Garden with their Jersey's on and its all hand signed everywhere and you JUST KNOW they did it themselves. LOL. Some sit around and get the auto's, but there are other nutjobs out there (I live in NY so there are A LOT of nutjobs out there and they arent the problem lol) who will sign their OWN stuff to look COOL.

Anyways, if this is true, I will be sitting around to get Hank's and Callahan's autograph on my Jersey's and anyone else who would like to sign.

I have a Lundqvist hand signed jersey framed and CAO from Steiner sports. But Hank comes to Steiner as with many other players and signs it infront of you.

My 2 cents.

The only SUREFIRE way to prove it was signed by said players to have photos of them actually signing the actual jersey. Since those are unavailable, the only way to really "authenticate" the signatures is something like PSA. I don't know if they do that though, and even they are getting sloppy. 99% of companies that "authenticate" or sell "autenticated" stuff are useless. COA's are garbage anymore and any collector worth his salt knows that.

BUT, in my opinion, the only reason to authenticate something is if you're going to sell it. Seeing as it looks to be a replica jersey (screened on numbers), and there are multiple signatures, some that overlap, and the silver marker on white, plus the lack of "proof", you would be lucky to get much of anything for it. Just the way it is with that kind of stuff. Had only Malkin signed it, it MIGHT be easier to sell. SOunds backwards I know.

If it were ME, I would KNOW it was signed by those players and thats all the proof I would ever need. If someone doesn't believe me then thats their deal. The ONE time I was able to meet Joe Sakic he signed a puck for me but the bus was literally pulling away and he had to be fast and jump in. If I didn't know it was his I would either say fake or just scribbles. But I know he signed it. And to me thats all that matters. I would never sell it nor feel the need to prove it's authenticity.

Even if you plan on selling I would say no. You won't get much back seeing as how it's screened on numbers + letters. Even for yourself, I wouldn't bother. I have 2 Sedin jersey's 1 Daniel 1 Henrik signed by both of them on each, other than that I wouldn't let more than one player sign a jersey with a name + number on it

I just reread my post and I sound kinda like a debbie downer, I hope you didn't take it that way. Thats a GREAT piece you have there that I would be very proud to have in my collection. Plus I'm sure theres a cool story behind it!
