RR Auction is putting the finishing touches on our big Space Artifacts auction for January, and during that time I’ve been working closely with our Space autograph expert Scott Cornish.
The experience confirmed what I already knew … Scott is absolutely the person we want authenticating astronaut signatures.
Scott is extremely diligent in his reviews and conservative in his assessments. We pass on items—or reject them outright—based on his opinion, coupled with our own assessment. When an item is accepted and sold by us, you can rest assured that it has been scrutinized and then scrutinized again.
A 20-year Space autograph hobby veteran, Scott focuses only on authenticating Space autographs, and consistently goes above and beyond the call as he reviews every space-themed signature that comes through our door. His dedication to the hobby has enabled him to detect many forgeries—something that helps everyone. As most you of know, Scott also helped write the highly regarded "Neil Armstrong Signature Study" for the UACC in 2005.
This insight has proved invaluable to RRAuctions and, I am confident that this relationship has only strengthened our reputation of providing collectors with, dare I say, “the right stuff.”
We use experts like Scott Cornish because we want to make sure our customers purchase only authentic autographs…autographs that our own in-house authenticators believe are real as well.
Scott does not authenticate exclusively for RR Auction, so l recommend to any one looking to buy NASA signed photos, always ask: “Does it come with a Scott Cornish?” If the answer is “no” then you should have him take a look.
