Brand New, Color 8x10 photo. Charlie Duke, 10th Man to Walk on the Moon. NOTE: In real-life, the autograph is far brighter than the scanning is able to show. Against the black background of the sky. The silver ink looks spectacular.
Your photo may not be the exact photo shown in the listing, but one nearly identical. Simply place items in the cart and then check out. But since photos are practically weightless, then this is really not an issue.
When you place these items in your cart, it gives you the option to send me an invoice. You pay only that amount. A Word About Certificates of Authenticity (COAs). Thank you for your interest, but no, we do not believe in COAs, and neither should. Nor should you be placing your trust in them either, as a.
COA does not prove anything. A COA is signed by someone you do not personally know, could probably never find again, and who may or may not be an expert in anything. Additionally, people have issued COAs on our autographs as though they were their pieces originally---all the more reason to avoid COAs.
In the case of most of our items, there is more than just a signature----there is an entire sentence. To see more handwriting and to know that the item is real. Forgers may be able to write someone's name and occasionally fool people; however, trying to forge an entire sentence in someone else's handwriting is nearly impossible. If you are seeking COAs with your autographs, then the question you should be asking yourself is this.
What does the COA do for me? A collector needs to educate himself as to what the handwriting of the person he is collecting looks like, and then he will know if it is real or not by his own knowledge. Do not leave this to someone else to do for you. You need to know that your item is authentic because you have done your homework----not because some piece of paper signed by someone you do not know and who wants to sell you something says it is authentic.If you have not done your homework, and if you have not researched and are familiar with the handwriting of the person whom you are collecting, then with all due respect, then you do not know what you are doing and have no business collecting autographs. Placing your faith in COAs to serve as your proof that your item is real is irresponsible and quite risky. Houses and cars are issued titles---not autographs.
So for these reasons, we do not issue COAs. Once the astronauts start passing away, and they are as we speak. Then these prices will go higher.
I hoped that this helped you to understand our field a little better. Ood luck to you building your space autograph collection.
