Collecting is not only a leisure activity, it's also a financial investment !
Whether you buy on ebay, from another dealer, an auction house or from us - authenticity should be your main concern. Like in any collecting area there are some pitfalls and traps to watch out for with space memorabilia as well.
Any of our items sold here or on ebay has been carefully checked for authenticity, that means all autographs have been carefully compared vs. known autopen and secretarial style samples first. With our more than 20 years of experience and our large network of space enthusiasts we then look for traits of a third-hand forgery before we offer it here or on ebay.
As with flown artifacts and memorabilia we always try to obtain these directly from astronauts and cosmonauts or well respected sources (like the Apollo 11 Kapton foil from one of the legends in space collecting - Ken Havekotte). Clear knowledge of the origin and source is everything !
