  • COA's are like Elvis, easily impersonated. They are just a piece of paper from a person you assume has integrity.
  • View many auctions, but especially club/fan websites to get an idea of what the real signature looks like.
  • Ask how they got the signature, if Elvis never visited Yackandandah, how did they get the sig?
  • Look at the price. People in Aus offering Woods for $99 when in the US, same item $2400 ..... please
  • COA's are like Kenny ... surrounded by sh*t. A waste of time.
  • Seriously look at a persons' feedback, test integrity.
  • Ensure that the person is not using a "stock" photo, a number of ebayers take scans of their best signature cards and use them for all auctions.
  • If an item is too good to be true, it is a fake.
  • Ensure that it is not a scan of an original photograph and/or signature.
  • Very few sellers have scruples, as a buyer you should have less.
  • Have I mentioned that COA's are generally just a POP (piece of paper)
