Authenticating Terry Pratchett

I think I bought Terry Pratchett's autograph at the Goodwill. That's really cool, only I have no idea what to do about it.

I grabbed a copy of Good Omens on a whim from my local Goodwill. When I got home and opened it up, I saw this
(apologies for crappy image). I've googled images of his autograph and it looks good to my untrained eye. I thought at first it might be printed, but that ink and only that ink has bled through to the opposite side of the page.
I'm not at all interested in its monetary value. For various reasons this feels like a gift and I'd like to take good care of it. I'd like to authenticate and possibly display it but I'm not sure how best to do that. So my question is twofold:
1. Can you recommend an authentication service? I'm VERY leery of shipping this thing off somewhere, so someone in northern Colorado or even southern Wyoming would be preferable.
2. How best to go about displaying this autograph? It's on the title page inside a paperback, which isn't in great condition as it is.
