how much does memorabilia being damaged affect its value? If an autograph gets wet and smudged? If a phone gets slightly damaged? Binding on a book becoming loose? Just wondering thanks guysContinue

as a novice collector I am quickly realizing there is lingo used in descriptions. Where is the best place to read go and define true meaning of these terms and what they mean to the value of…Continue

"I agree that it’s on a very case-by-case basis hinging on value and supply. For example, a Babe Ruth signed photo with some edge wearing and creases is not going to be affected much by minor condition issues. However, a Mickey Mantle signed…"

"It's a case by case consideration. Depending on the rarity of the signature even the slightest damage, especially to the signature, can dramatically reduce the value. Actually, seeing the item in question would make it far easier to evaluate."

"Of course I understand it loses value, my question is in your experience how much? Let’s say a signature baseball is worth 100$; it gets water damaged smudge a little. You drop your offer to $50, $60,$70 ect just asking for range and ideas of…"

"Very hard to provide a general answer, you're almost always going to have to look at it on a case by case basis factoring in qualities such as signature value, rarity and the extent of the damage."

"Beautiful historic images. I did not mean to imply that antique/historical images were confined to any particular time in the past. Clearly images related to the Titanic, Hindenburg, and Hiroshima are historical/vintage images without the need for…"

"Hello Paul, The Bowie's are both promotional. The onstage shot would be candid in pose, but the Gorman is staged. Of course, the forged signature would be of no value and the photo is likely a copy print anyway so of no value. And yes, both, if…"
