I was looking through my autographed cards a few weeks ago and I realized that I was missing a pretty important Cub, Greg Maddux.  It wasn't intentional; I really like Greg Maddux.  But most of his certified autographs show him with the Braves.  Those won't be going into my collection.  

I decided to go a different direction.  Instead of certified auto, I would look into just a plain on-card autograph. The risk here, of course, would be fraud.  I'm not much of a betting man, so I wasn't going to spend too much on one of these.

Here's what I ended up with, an autograph on a Donruss '91 card.  The card set me back all of $6.99.  The seller sells a bunch of autographs and has a 99.9% feedback rating with over 6900 transactions.  His only negative didn't mention a fake autograph.

Plus, he included a nifty Certificate of Authenticity.  Of course, anyone can make up one of these, so for the most part, they aren't worth the paper their printed on.  

So there, $6.99 and piece of mind....for the most part!

  1. Besides most of his certifieds being Braves they're also really pricey. Enjoy your card. Looks real to me.
