Cool Re: HELP- Question About Jersey/Autograph

I don't mean to be crass, but I think you all vastly over estimate the value of your items.

Your home owner's probably does cover the theft/destruction of the jerseys but your deductible is probably 1-2% of the value of your home.

These jerseys have a market value of maybe $200-300 tops?

I promise you have a ton of stuff in your home worth way more than the jerseys. Sports memorabilia is a niche market and has a very narrow view of what is valuable. I wouldn’t even spend the money for a COA. I don’t know what they charge but it probably won’t increase the value of your item enough to cover the authentication cost.

As far as framing, you can get a special custom frame jersey with special glass and special matting and pay well over $1,000, but that just doesn’t make sense for a $200 jersey. I would wait until Hobby Lobby has a 50% frame sale. Just don’t hang it in direct sunlight and you’ll be fine.

There was a guy at the last Tri Star that makes cheap ‘custom’ (every Texans one was the same, every Colts one was the same, etc.) frames that were pretty cool. If anyone wants his info PM me and I’ll look for his business card. I think he works out of his house, so probably a little more leeway to work with than a retail store.

*edit*
I.E. intrensic value to you >>>>>>>> cash value on the retail market
