Anyone ever bought from Mr Memorabilia LTD?

Items seem extremely underpriced in some cases. In others, they seem around where they should be. People seem satisfied on Trustpilot, but it could be attributed to herd mentality, and the reviews…Continue

My only concern is I got it for $10 years ago on Ebay, but it does compare favorably to authenticated examples. Continue

Anyone ever bought from Mr Memorabilia LTD?

Items seem extremely underpriced in some cases. In others, they seem around where they should be. People seem satisfied on Trustpilot, but it could be attributed to herd mentality, and the reviews might be about the service and shipping speed rather than the authenticity.One thing that's a big red flag for me is they're not on the AFTAL list. https://www.mrmemorabiliastore.com/What say you?See More

"I guess you can choose to believe that. Personally, I'd seek out Beckett-witnessed signatures that were obtained in the last 2 years and see how they compare. I haven't seen much of a change in how he signs his full signature in the last…"

John Smith replied to Jacob Henderson's discussion WARNING: Fake Cristiano Ronaldo Signatures are being sold by the CR7 Museum in Madeira!
"The first 2 examples are clear fakes imo. The icons one is what you'd expect  The thing with Ronaldo is he also signs an "abbreviated" version of his signature. That's the sort of signature fans will get when he's…"

"The signature on the ticket looks pretty damn accurate, but the one on the jersey looks way off imo. There are some really good frauds on Ebay who do a much better job (so much so that most people would think it's real). The only red flags are…"

"I was tempted to buy one of these, so I checked the museum website out. Turns out the original price was only 70 Euro (bad sign already), but they were sold out. Conmen or maybe people who don't know better are selling it for at least triple…"

John Smith replied to Garrett Meadows's discussion Does eBay REALLY guarantee the authenticity of all items sold on its site?
"I was such a buyer until very recently. I never put much in Ebay's verification system and such. I did, however, expect a COA to hold the seller to some level of some responsibility, but a COA is inherently just an opinion which allows them to…"

"Beckett quick opinion came back as likely not authentic for another one of their items. I guess I'm going to go with my gut despite all the evidence he's provided me with."

PSA quick opinion "not likely" result on club-issued memorabilia

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/295311581474?du=5&ul_noapp=trueI confirmed that the format on the COA matches the type the club would issue. Is this an example of those rare cases where PSA gets it wrong?See More

"When I say "allegedly obtained Haaland's autograph", I meant for all the shirts. It's clear that he's obtained it for at least one of them. Problem is there's a bunch of them on Ebay. How can I possibly know that they…"

"Yeah, I recognized him from Everybody Loves Raymond. His friend didn't get his autograph in person, but a bunch of players' from Borussia Dortmund, including Haaland's allegedly. "

"Happy New Year's. Turns out this guy is a real estate agent (he linked me the website he can be found on) who does this as a hobby. So he may not be a scammer himself, but he probably got taken. The PSA quick opinion came back "likely not…"

Rich replied to John Smith's discussion Has anyone here heard of a Thomas Schluchter?
"Well, Ebay definitely allows many worse characters to sell, that's for sure. I will say the fact that this guy thinks this is Robert Redford isn't too promising."
