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.
