Hey, guys. Wondering if anyone has an info or experience with OnlineAuthentics.com? Looking to buy an item with their PHYSICAL COA, and wanted to make sure they are legit. When I look up the COA number, it says "Origin of item: Greg Tucker autographs". Let me know. Thanks.

From what I understand from their website, Online Authentics doesn't authenticate autographs, it registers them. So the COA is no better than the reputation of the party submitting it. They are or have been used by Muhammad Ali's organization. Those should be fine. Others, it's case by case.

Post the autograph and get opinions.

They offer something called a "Physical Review Service." They don't use the word authentication but it reads like that is what they are offering. A snippet from their site is below.

OnlineAuthentics.com offers a Physical Review program that allows our users to submit items for physical examination by our Review Staff, a group of some of the most knowledgeable and experienced dealers and collectors in the industry.

Thanks, Chad.

That looks like an add-on service and you're right, nowhere do they say that they authenticate during that review. The certificate they offer, shown on their website, is called a "Certificate of Registration." I referred to it as a COA in my last comment, which was incorrect.

Scratch my OG comment.That was another joint with a similar name. OnlineAuthentics is legit actually they are Exclusive with Sandy Koufax and I believe he had something to do with the start up with the company.for some reason I was thinking of something else.
