How does one sell an autograph?
posted by norm to Sports, Hobbies, & Recreation (8 answers total)
I have a somewhat unique autograph* that, due to current events, might be somewhat more valuable currently than later (although this is also debatable; ALL RIGHT FINE IT'S TIGER WOODS).
I have not decided to sell it, but might. But frankly, I have no idea how one would go about doing it. I've googled it some, but don't feel like I've learned much. Should one use a dealer? How would you find one? How does the industry authenticate such things? Are there recognized experts in this field? There would have to be, right? Is this even a valuable autograph? I really don't know the answers to any of these questions.
*Relevant details: it's a big fat autograph on the program for the 1996 US Amateur, which Mr. Woods won immediately prior to going pro. I know it is authentic because my wife (who was working at the tournament) got it at the time herself.
