Lifetime of Autographs, LLC
sure to add me to your favorites list
to LOA, LLC, the place to go for your authentic hand signed memorabilia.
Although this site is new to eBay, I have been dealing in authentic
autographs for 15 years. I have sold to over 10,000 customers and references
are available at request. Why should you buy from LOA, LLC? Here is why.
Because our signatures will leave you with no question on authenticity. These
professionally authenticated signatures have been personally collected
through decades of research, hard work, and patience. They have been well
taken care of, cared for and WILL BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE AND DIVERSE
COLLECTIONS YOU WILL EVER SEE. My goal is to sell authenticated autographs
for prices that are still affordable to fans. Why else?
a short list:
* Nearly every item will have
either a COA from JSA, PSA/DNA, or GAI - all 3 eBay approved authenticators OR
an EXACT PROOF photo of the celebrity signing in the listing. In the rare
case that this is not offered, an additional object of provenance will be
offered. You will not see meaningless COA's from random people, nor photos
called proof that are anything but. Don't believe that just because someone
has a photo of someone signing or a photo with a celebrity that the
autographs they sell are real.
* I will be selling no pre-prints,
no secreterials, no "stock photo" autographs...all hand signed
originals!!! You will get the exact one of a kind item that is pictured in
the listing everytime.
* You will not find a seller with
pre-authenticated material at a better Buy It Now price anywhere on eBay. If
you do, I will be willing to price match on Fixed Price listings. E-mail me
* The selection of signatures I
will be offering is so vast and unique. You will be seeing musicians from
every genre of music, actors, models, political names, artists, inventors,
businessmen, sports heroes, porn stars, heroes, the infamous, etc. You just
never know whose autograph you may find as I have 1000's of certified
authentic signatures to list.
Basic Certificate of Authenticity Process
Each item is methodically examined and reviewed
individually by each of our authenticators to ensure their expert instinctive
impressions are in agreement. This intuitive sense has been developed after
many years of examining thousands of autographs. The expert is extremely
familiar with many different variations and evolution of an individual's
signature and can quickly identify irregularities evident in a clubhouse,
secretarial, or forged signature.
Second, the expert more closely
examines each and every component and letter of an autograph, paying close
attention to characteristics such as signature flow, style, spontaneity,
letter angle, etc. In most cases, this process performed separately by each
authenticator will quickly eliminate the vast majority of non-authenticate
autographs. In cases where closer examination is required, James Spence
Authentication employs a high-technology authentication tool to reinforce
the expert's findings. The Video Spectral Comparator is a powerful
workstation designed to examine questionable documents and autographs using
sophisticated color and infrared imaging, magnification, coaxial lighting,
side lighting, and on-screen, side-by-side or overlaid autograph comparisons.
The VSC detects erasures, reveals masked and obliterated signatures,
differences in ink types, and several other features useful for autograph
The authenticators then
collaborate and employ a scoring system for the final determination of an
item's authenticity. Certified items are then given a registration number and
the tamper-evident label is applied to either the item itself or the Letter
of Authenticity (customer preference).
items will be shipped very promptly, usually using Priority Mail services. I
will ship as soon as I can, but visit the post office about 3 times a week.
Items are shipped in plastic photo sleeves (very attractive durable hard
should not be bent or folded in transit. Items larger than photos are shipped
in very heavy cardboard, while 11x14" photos and posters are shipped in
sturdy poster tubes. Great care will be taken in packaging your winning item
as these items are 1-of-a-kind! I will combine purchases on photos, and am
very willing to work with you on shipping in anyway (Express, UPS, FED-EX,
etc.) Delivery confirmation is usually purchased on all items and will be
added into database when item is shipped.
shipping (Please read):
shipping is done using either First Class International mail or Global
Priority Mail. On packages valued at over $50, Registered Mail will be used
for even more security. Even though I am a quick and reliable shipper, it is
very hard to estimate arrival to different countries. I will provide a
scanned customs # that will prove the promptness in my shipping, and assure
you that your item has been mailed. After that, we both just need to wait it
out and be patient. Please understand that sometimes packages mysteriously
take months due to customs (very rare, but happens). If you are an
international buyer and not willing to work with me, please refrain from
bidding as I will have scanned proof that I mailed your item promptly, but
can not control the time it takes to get there. I have had difficulty several
times in the past with Italy, Mexico, and Spain
holding packages, so please be aware a $10 extra charge will be added for
Registered Mail for these countries.
