Finding Signed Items By James Spence Authentication (JSA)

James Spence Authentication is a well-known company that authenticates autographed items. The company is used by clients to determine if an autograph is likely authentic or not authentic.  "JSA" is used by some of the nation’s most famous auction houses and sports memorabilia companies including Upper Deck, Grey Flannel Auctions, Fusco Auctions, Heritage Auctions, Cardboard Memories, Hollywood Collectibles, Hunt Auctions, Mastro Auctions, Rob Rosen, Steiner Sports, and Sotheby’s. The company includes an incredibly experienced team of authenticators specializing in various areas including sports, history, music, politics, and entertainment and is managed by lead authenticator, James Spence, Jr.

Similar to PSA / DNA, James Spence Authentication charges a range of fees, dependent upon the autograph being authenticated. Items with a higher perceived value cost more to authenticate. Authentication fees for a single item with one signature range from $35.00 to $250.00. The company also will authenticate items containing more than one signature for an additional fee. Authentication fees for items with two – five signatures range from $50.00 to $250.00. Fees for items with six – twenty-six signatures is $100.00 to $250.00. Any item with more than 27 signatures has a minimum fee of $150.00. Oversized items (items with dimensions greater than 3 ½” x 5 ¼”) also have an $8.00 surcharge.

James Spence Authentication also offers a ‘Basic Certification Program’ ranging from $20.00 – $30.00 or a ‘Stamp of Approval’ program for $4.00 for items with a smaller perceived value (this pertains to items with a perceived value of no more than $20.00).

The company offers appraisal services for autographed items, generally for insurance or estate purposes. The cost for this service is $50.00 per item (multiple items have a negotiated price).

James Spence Authentication also offers an immediate same day service (with certain restrictions). The cost for this service is the standard fee plus an additional $50.00. In addition, the company will make house calls for on-site authentication for auction houses, dealers, private collectors, or estate collections at a $2,500.00 fee per day. The cost includes eight hours of personalized authentication at the client’s location and up to thirty-five (35) letters of authenticity, letters of regret, or a combination of basic certification and stamp of approvals. To obtain this service, the client must also pay air fare (coach) or mileage for trips made by car, transfer fees from the airport to the location (when applicable), and double occupancy hotel accommodations for an authenticator.

All fees are the same, regardless of the determination of an item’s authenticity.

Additionally, collectors must pay shipping and insurance fees. The typical turnaround time for authentication services is ten days, but the time is dependent upon availability of the company’s authenticators.

You can find hundreds of signed items with the James Spence Authentication stamp of approval on eBay.
