Frequently Asked Questions: General
How do I know that these autographs are authentic?
Dynasty Sports takes pride in providing quality items for you the customer. All of our autographed memorabilia is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and/or a serial-numbered hologram. Most items are authenticated by Dynasty Sports, however we also have items that have been authenticated by JSA (James Spence Authentication) and PSA/DNA. These are the two most reputable names in the industry when it comes to signature certification and we guarantee that any item certified by Dynasty Sports will pass JSA and PSA/DNA tests.
Can Dynasty Sports authenticate my signed item?
To ensure a high standard of quality, Dynasty Sports will only authenticate items that are present at one of our public or private autograph signings. We do not take in items to be authenticated on a day-to-day basis like JSA and PSA/DNA do.
Will Dynasty Sports buy or appraise my signed item?
Being sports fans and memorabilia collectors ourselves, we here at Dynasty Sports would love to take a look at any signed item that you might want to bring in from home. Using our knowledge gained through working in the memorabilia business, we may be able to give you some valuable information on your item. However, we cannot officially appraise an item, nor will we buy anything from the public.
How does Dynasty Sports determine the final price of autographed memorabilia?
There are many steps taken before a piece of memorabilia looks like it does when it is hanging on your wall at home. The final price of an item is calculated by not only the value of the signature (which varies greatly from athlete to athlete for many different reasons), but also the cost of the photograph and the cost of framing and matting. The value of a particular player’s autograph will vary depending on if he/she is a current player, retired player, hall of fame player, deceased player, etc.
Where does Dynasty Sports get their autographed memorabilia?
Dynasty Sports obtains most of their autographed memorabilia through public and private autograph signings. We have done public and private autograph signings with athletes like LeSean McCoy, Carlos Ruiz, Claude Giroux, Bernie Parent, and many others. We may also obtain certain out-of-market memorabilia from other vendors that do their own public and private signings. Again, Dynasty Sports guarantees their signatures to be 100% authentic.
