In RR Auction’s continuing mission to deliver 100% guaranteed authentic items to our customers, we are proud to announce the addition of Steve Zarelli to our team of authenticators. With over 15 years of experience collecting and closely studying space and aviation autographs, Zarelli has placed himself at the forefront of identifying deceptive forgeries. His findings have been published in the definitive space-collecting reference, Relics of the Space Race, as well as the UACC’s Pen & Quill magazine. Steve was also a contributor to the UACC signature study, Neil Armstrong: The Quest for His Autograph.
“RR has a reputation of offering the finest space material and I am excited to be part of that ongoing tradition,” Zarelli noted. “I look forward to using my experience and skills in ensuring RR’s clients receive unquestionably authentic material.”
Currently serving as the UACC Ethics Director, Zarelli was awarded the UACC Distinguished Service Award in 2006. His expertise and knowledge will prove a valuable asset to our already stellar team, and as a consulting authenticator, he will work closely with our own lead authenticator, Bill White, to filter through the myriad forgeries that have infiltrated the space market, guaranteeing a remarkable experience with RR Auction.
Welcome to the team, Steve!
