Every autograph deemed authentic by WorldWide Autographs Inc. is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. Each COA has a unique number associated to the autograph which is permanently filed in our system. The file contains all key details about the autograph including exactly who signed it, who obtained the autograph, when and where it was signed and photographs of the item to prevent any kind of tampering or forgery.

We also offer an appraisal service once authenticity has been determined. Appraisals depend on many factors including current market value, condition of the autograph and condition of the autographed item. Condition of the autograph itself usually plays the most important part. A clear, visible signature is more highly sought after and fetches a much higher price from a collector than a faded or slightly smudged signature. Current market value is based on known sale prices. Demand and ability of obtaining a particular persons autograph is also considered.
