How much does it cost to get something authenticated?

Authentication is an important part of the sports memorabilia industry as it helps to guarantee the authenticity of an item and can add value to it. The cost to authenticate an autograph or sports memorabilia item can vary depending on the service and the item itself. For example, one online evaluation service charges $700 per item-evaluation while more specialized companies charge up to $1,000 for analyzing a single piece.

Authentication companies such as Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) and James Spence Authentication (JSA) offer a variety of services and have different fees depending on the type of item being authenticated. PSA typically charges $20 for an online pre-certification, which is the first step to full authentication. The fee to upgrade to full authentication is usually around $5. This includes a physical inspection and finalized authentication with a matching sticker number. If a Letter of Authentication (LOA) is required, there is an additional fee.

Beckett Authentication Services (BAS) also offers a range of services and fees. They typically charge $20 for an online pre-certification, and a fee of $5 for an upgrade to full authentication. BAS also offers a Grade and Encapsulation service for an additional fee. This includes a physical inspection and finalized authentication with a matching sticker number, as well as a tamper-proof sticker.

Knowing how much it costs to authenticate an autograph or sports memorabilia item is essential for any collector. With the right information, collectors can ensure they get the best price when buying or selling memorabilia. Companies such as PSA, JSA, and BAS offer quality services that help to guarantee the authenticity of an item.
