AUTOGRAPH CERTIFICATION EXPERTS, LLC (ACE) HELPS FIGHT AGAINST AUTOGRAPH FRAUD IN HOBBY

Villa Park, Calif. – July 17, 2008 – In an effort to help against the constant fraud in the autograph hobby, ACE will be offering free authentication to patrons at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention being held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

“With the recent economic downturn and increasing unemployment the appeal of forging autographs can be very lucrative because the cost to do it is just a pen” stated company president Neil Whiteley Ross. In the past the FBI has estimated as high as 70% of autographs in the marketplace are fraudulent and that percentage may even be higher with more popular athletes. “In a field that is riddled with fraudulent material, we want to provide collectors an avenue to check the authenticity of their valuable and treasured items” said Whiteley Ross.

Striving to help genuine autographs entering the marketplace to be identified as authentic, “we hope everyone can take advantage of this opportunity to have their items authenticated for free” said Whiteley Ross. “As we provide a trusted brand of third party autograph authentication, hopefully this offer will give some relief to collector’s wallets during these turbulent economic times” stated Vice President Justin Priddy.

Offer Details

Free authentication is limited to one per person each day of the 2008 National Sports Collectors Convention July 30th through August 3rd held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. To participate in this offer, patrons must fully complete an order form and show a valid form of identification at the ACE Booth #840. Offer valid to only autographed items. Letters of Authenticity will be provided for items at ACE’s discretion. Certificates of Authenticity and Letters of Authenticity will only be provided on items that ACE renders as genuine. ACE reserves the right to cut off submissions based on volume received. Additional items can be submitted for authentication at the discounted rate of $10 per Certificate of Authenticity and $30 per Letter of Authenticity.
