Determining the Value of Autographs

When you have a famous person’s autograph, chances are that it will go for a significant sum. However, similar to the values of stamps and coins, there are a few ways that an appraiser will determine how valuable your autographed item is.

What the autograph appears on can determine how valuable the item is. For example, an authorized signature on a letter or piece of paper may not be as valuable as that same autograph on an official document or memorabilia. Appraisers must also look at the condition of the item itself. It needs to be in good to great condition to garner any sort of value. This means that the paper needs to be flat and without tears; or the basketball should be inflated and without scuff marks. These are just examples, but keep in mind that the condition of the item and its signature go a long way in determining the value of an autograph.
