Autographed Sports Memorabilia. How to determine their Value

Sports Autographs are one of those unique hobbies that many people start at a very young age. Whether it be Michael Jordan flying in for dunk or Joe Montana finding a receiver for a game-winning touchdown, these are the memories that remain with us for years and instantly turns us into fans of the player and the game.

As we continue to watch with amazement the highlights and the special gifts of athletes to thrill so many spectators, we cannot help but want to savor the moment and accomplishments of that athlete. Autograph collecting allows us to remember fondly the countless special plays athletes make during their illustrious career. So how do we determine the value of sports autographs?

The value of a sports autograph vastly depends on numerous factors. First and foremost, supply and demand. A Michael Jordan sports autograph is far more sought after than a John Paxson autograph. The memorabilia the athlete has signed also plays a valuation role. A signed game jersey, basketball etc. has far more value than a signature on a piece of paper or coffee cup. The condition of the signed item is also important. An item that has no alterations enhances the value of the sports autographs. Next, how was the autograph signed? A pen/ marker signed name tends to write clearly and smoothly and usually does not smear or fade in the future. Pencil signatures tend to fade and do not create a clear signature as a pen. Another important value point is where did the sports autograph come from. A signature from a vendor who exclusively contracts with the athlete can provide solid documentation of authenticity and usually verification. This will likely drive the price of the autograph, but you will be assured of an investment that will rise in the future.

Sports autographs are an exciting hobby. If done right and with a little research, you can find top-notch athletes on hundreds of great memorabilia items that will be sure to capture your competitive spirit as well provide a great investment vehicle.
