My local card shop has a bid board every week that has Panini and Upper deck signed cards of some really great sport people. Most times you can pick them up for cheap. They guarantee them to be authentic.  I was wondering if you sport collectors feel ok about them? Our local card shop owner has been paid to watch our NBA team sign them.

If they are not certified and you did not see them signed dont touch them unless you really want to take the chance, me I would not buy them.

Louie, thanks for your reply. I was wondering what you mean by certified?   The card says they are guaranteed authentic. The signature is on a sticker with a Panini hologram in the background. Do you think they are OK?

Maybe if he had some pictures taken of the signings? Also if you trust your dealer as well.

Are these from the company or are these ones he had people sign? If certified from company then they should be okay, If he says he just had them sign I wouldnt buy them?

For contemporary autographs, they are fine. However, Even Upper Deck has had some authenticity issues the past several years with it's cut signature cards. Not only that, the cards that are real are simply destroying historical documents. 


Like I said though, the modern player stuff is ok. Just make sure they are indeed insert autograph cards and not autographs on base set cards.

Louie,  the cards he is describing are autograph cards that are inserted into the packs and sold.  the companies have been getting the stars to sign hologram laced stickers  ( in sheets of hundreds ) then they place the sticker on whatever autograph sub-set they are offering. The card is placed into random packs and sold. This is all done by the company that makes the cards.  Sticker autographs are not as popular as card signed autographs but they are more common.
