This question is asked almost every week. To authenticate my autograph, who should I contact?
To be clear, there are three companies that you should only use for 3rd-party autograph authentication: Beckett Authorization, James Spence Authorization (JSA), PSA/DNA. This is it. There is no one else. Furthermore, these three companies are the only ones that can add their authentication to autographed items. This increases its value.
Depending on where you live, who you prefer, which item you need to be authenticated, and how fast you need it to be done, you will depend on what you like. PSA is the most popular source for autographs from celebrities due to its Hollywood location.
Beckett has Steve Grad, a former PSA authenticator, on its’ team. This makes them just as suitable for autographs from celebrities. JSA is great for marks, vintage and sports (and celebrity autographs), and Beckett and PSA are equally good. Beckett can be found in Texas and JSA in New Jersey or Florida.
Although pricing may differ from one company to the next, they generally charge approximately the same. It is essential to have a quick turnaround time. JSA has always been quick to return items. It usually takes between 3-4 weeks for your item to be produced from any three companies. If you require an item by a specific date, always call ahead.
Below is a recent Twitter poll that shows who people might use (a tiny sample). These are the three determining factors of who you should use.
1.)Location of company
2.) Type of autograph to be authenticated
3.) How fast do you need it done
