If an item is listed as “Sold Out” could it become available in the future?
When dealing with hand-signed collectibles, many items are extremely limited. If there was a particular item that you regret not purchasing when you had the chance, please let us know. We will search our extensive networks to try to obtain one for you. If that item is no longer available, similar items can be suggested. We would be happy to put you on a wait list to be notified when a particular item comes back in stock.
Is every available item currently listed on your website?
We strive to keep our system accurate in real time. When dealing with thousands of different items flowing in and out, however, it is sometimes difficult to feature every item. If there is something you are interested in, please let us know and we will do our best to satisfy your request.
How can I determine if an item I purchased elsewhere is authentic?
It is important to research the reputation and background of the company certifying the memorabilia prior to purchase. Simply because an item comes with a C.O.A. or a photo proof does not guarantee its authenticity. Unfortunately, forgeries in the sports memorabilia industry are prevalent. A Certificate of Authenticity is only as good as the company issuing it. All major memorabilia distributors, including Palm Beach Autographs, issue tamper-evident Holograms adhered to each item accompanied by their Certificate of Authenticity. This link between the certification and the item itself is crucial.
Will Palm Beach Autographs authenticate or appraise my item?
Palm Beach Autographs will not certify any item that was not personally witnessed by a member of our staff. We have relationships the top third-party authenticators, and will be happy to point you in the right direction to have your item authenticated and appraised.
Will I receive the exact item pictured?
Palm Beach Autographs has conducted large-scale autograph signings with some of the world’s top athletes. During the course of each signing, the athlete will sign multiples of the same item. Our photographs are representative of each item, but all autographs are unique. In many cases, you will receive the exact item shown, otherwise your signature may vary slightly from the one pictured.
What is your return / exchange policy?
