Many collectors of high end, museum grade collectibles often don’t know where to go or who to trust for their most desirable collecting needs. As a collector for 30 years, I understand the frustration of not only locating genuinely rare choice items, but also finding a truly reputable source and/or dealer to buy from. And, most serious collector have been “burned” at least once or twice. I know I have. But, I also understand that being “burned” was part of the learning process, that I can hopefully share with the rest of the collector community so they don’t have to experience mistakes I made.

Probably the most important concern to a dealer of rare memorabilia is insuring and guaranteeing authenticity. Experience with authenticating memorabilia such as rare autographs is the value a reputable dealer brings to his clients.
