    Does anyone here know much about Autographs? Like how would you go about finding out if an autograph that you had was worth anything?

    Generally auto's are only worth what people will pay for them so search ebay for guidelines but you need proof it's authentic. What auto are you wondering about

    You would have to have the autograph authenticated. I was trying to do this for some stuff my mom has, but the authentication places will want you to send the original sig ... not a copy. Once you find out if it's real or not, then you can go about selling it. The authenticator might help out with a price, too, but I'm not sure on that.

    Good luck :)

    its a autograph from Joe Montana.
    Somebody has showed interest in it, and asked if I would sell it to him, but he wants me to name a price...

    It also depends on what it's signed on. If it's just a napkin then probably not much, but if it's a football from Superbowl XVI then probably thousands. My guess is that it's only worth 2 or 3 hundred. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who turns people down for an autograph, so it's probably not that rare.

    Even though you know it's real, in the event your buyer might want to sell it in the future, a cert of authentication might be valuable.

    Thanks for all the tips! ;)

    its not on a napkin, nor a superbowl ticket.

    just a pice of paper..

    back in the late '80s, the niners had their summer training camp at sierra college in Rocklin, and i was there, and walked through the cafateria, and saw him sitting with some people, and very timdidly walked up and asked if i could have his autograph..and he smiled and said sure

    so it says "To Craig, All the best, Joe Montana"

    several years later, after he retired, I saw him at the Nevada County Fair in Grass Valley California, of all places, and he looked at me, and then did a double take, and said "your that kid that i talked to in the cafeteria in rocklin years ago"..

    I was susprised and impressed that he remembered
