Can anyone give me an idea if these signatures look good or where I might be able to have them authenticated before I possibly purchase the item?

Having bought from him before, I can say two things: No worries about the stuff you buy, and if you do have questions, he does address them (there was an crew photo I thought might have autopenned signatures, and it was pulled).

Thanks. I have only started collecting astronaut autographs this past year but I have been in baseball memorabilia for about 10 years. Even if I was buying from my best friend I would want to have it authenticated by a reputable company. Someone sent me a link for Steve Zarelli site so I sent him a message on there.

No disrespect intended to anyone out there, but the only way to be sure an item has been signed by a person is to have the item signed in front of you. You can get to 99 and several decimal points certainty, but never absolute certainty.

That, and the majority of my collection (shuttle-era autographs) aren't likely to appreciate in value for a long, long time to warrant getting LOAs or COAs for them.

All times are CT (US)
