* NOTE: Our fee schedule is designed to represent the charge for authentication of your autographed collectible and is based on a perceived market value. The fees for signers that are between $20 and $30 are listed under the Basic Cert Program and can be upgraded to a Letter of Authenticity for $15. This is reflected as such in the database. In cases where there is a wider range of price between the Basic Cert and LOA Fees (more than $15) for the same individual, the lower number represents items such as a signed 3x5 index card, album page, HOF plaque card, or photograph and would be eligible for our Basic Cert Service. Premium items such as a single-signed bat, ball, glove, helmet, or jersey require our Letter of Authenticity.
