Don't have a preference. They're both reputable. SGC, Beckett, and Upper Deck are also good.
Neither of them is all that great, and both seem to have been in decline in recent years. Might depend on what type of music and entertainment you're referring to though.
for music I would go to Roger Epperson (who also works for JSA in some capacity)
I agree that JSA & PSA have been slipping
SGC seems to have a good reputation
And I would never buy anything Beckett without a second and third opinion (from AML)
To be honest, AML is my main trusted source and couldn't care less about a certificate or a sticker that I consider a destruction of property
My opinions are the sum of personal experience and reading information from members here
you are on AML now
this is AML (autograph magazine live)
its all good ma man
Matt, if you have any autograph? Bring it here first. Someone will gladly help you out. Better than any COA out there.
End of the day you are paying for someone to give an opinion on an autograph.
Maybe from an computer with examples on file. Then for them to see the size of the signature etc to determine if it is authentic from what they see or looking at.
So really you do need to do you own homework first on what you buy. Yes sometimes pre certified autographs does kind of help but again you still need to do some work of your own.
I always did think JSA were better with vintage autographs or with some sports like baseball.
PSA did always do an better job with more current autographs and Sports.
Beckett i would think the same really as PSA. Beckett was something to do with JSA from what I remember.
This site is very good for helping with opinions with autographs.
Neither are really that good with music and entertainment signatures. They good at collecting money and giving an opinion though. Seems the longer I look at their opinions on EBAY though I’d think a coin flip is about what you are paying for.
a combination of what Kato and Rick said is what I would call the accurate truth
