Authentic Sports Collectibles And Memorabilia

Dec 27, 2007
The person that catches the winning game ball in a World Series will know that they have a piece of history in their hands. The game officials will determine the authenticity of that particular baseball because this particular ball has earned some people who have caught it a large sum of money. Authentic sports collectibles such as this are high-tax earners that force the owner to sell rather than keep the sports collectible stored away for many years.

The licensed tag that is sewn into the hem of each item might authenticate the sports collectibles and memorabilia that are worn by players during a championship baseball or football game. This label will serve as the certificate of authenticity if and when the item is ever sold. Some baseball and football collectibles that bear this label will be protected from abuse by glass that is part of a display case. All who view these items will know they are authentic because the label will be in clear sight.

The sports team logo could also be used to authenticate sports memorabilia and other collectibles that belong to a certain sports team. An online sports store might authenticate the authority to sell these items on the open mark by displaying the team logo on the home page of the retail website. The sports collectibles that fall into this category can be new or used and as long as the team logo is adhered to the article in some way, collectors are ensured of spending money on something that is certain to become very valuable one day.

Some collectors make sure that they have a chance to collect authentic sports gear and other pieces of memorabilia by subscribing to email updates that will keep them apprised of every authentic collectible that is added to a dealers website. Some of these items might be tickets to a game played many years before, or the updates could notify them that there are a limited number of tickets available to a highly sought after bowl game. These tickets will be authenticated at the gate and increase in value as the years go by.

Sports collectibles for the National Football League may be authenticated by the manufacturer's logo that can be seen on the side of an authentic football helmet. Riddell manufacturers all football helmets worn by professional football players, and collectors know to look for the official helmet of the NFL by using this method. The marketing techniques used for collectible helmets might advertise them as full-sized helmets or ones that are miniature. Both styles will bear authentic Riddell markings.

This type of marketing method will also extend to football jerseys, which are sold in replica versions and actual game jersey formats. Fans can review the certificate of authenticity that comes with each jersey or search for the NFL logo that has been sewn into the hem. The replica jerseys are usually worn by fans everyday but can be placed in a display case. The viewpoint on how valuable the item remains after such wear might change but the authenticity will never be in question.
