Each item is methodically examined and
reviewed by our authenticators. Academy of Manuscript and Autograph uses state of the art
technology to protect your genuine valuable collectible from any
foul play. To combat counterfeiting and provide peace of mind to
collectors, the Academy of Manuscript and Autograph employs this level of Authentication System.
1 Level: Examination
2 Level: Grading
While the grading standards are followed
generally and as closely as possible, eye-appeal is the most
significant and, ultimately, the controlling factor when it comes to
Autograph Grading Standards
3 Level: Tagging
Our Hologram Stickers with matching
serial numbers for the item authenticated and your letter of
authentication are offered in oval shape (.75 inch wide x
.375 inch high) which is best for affixing to baseballs, softballs,
footballs, and other contoured and hard surfaces.
All of the Hologram Stickers with
matching serial numbers are tamper evident. If removed, the
hologram image will self destruct. In addition, the label is
non-destructive and does not harm your valuable item.
