Having your sports idol signature on your item be it a hat, a ball, a t-shirt or a card is a die hard fan's wish come true. A sports memorabilia for some fans is a personal treasure and for some, it's some sort of a personal achievement, especially if you are the one who sacrifices and spends long hours waiting in line under the the heat of the sun just to get that precious signature or your idol. There are also some who go online or go to auctions to buy their sports idol signature items. This things however can be very expensive, and paying for something you are not even sure if it's original or fake is a risky thing to do, and many fans and item collectors get victimize by this. We fans are not experts on determining whether an item is fake or not, and spending money on an item and ending buying a fake one can be very disappointing and disheartening for a die hard fan. What we fans need is an expert, to be precise what we need is an Autograph Certification Experts, that can examine items and determine if it's fake or not.
