WELCOME TO MEMORABILIA INVESTMENTS
'Our mission is to become the number one distributor of signed memorabilia in the UK, to provide authentic autographs in a way that reflects positively on the industry, and that provides total peace of mind for our customers.'
We are Memorabilia Investments, a family run business that deal primarily in autographs, but also vintage sports memorabilia and collectables. We started out as collectors ourselves so we understand how daunting buying an autograph or piece of memorabilia can be. How can you be sure that the autograph or piece of memorabilia you have purchased is the genuine article? You are right to be cautious, because in all walks of life, and in every industry there are will always be unscrupulous and unsavoury characters whose only aim is to make a fast buck. This is one of the very reasons why we decided to set up our business in the first place, and our very aim is to provide total peace of mind for our customers.
The majority of our autographs have been signed in person whilst we have been present, at various events and private signings, or acquired from trusted dealers. We also acquire items from reputable auction houses; these are usually the more vintage autographs, which may have been signed in the 1950's/60's/70's etc, and sometimes by celebrities that may now be deceased, were it would no longer be possible for us to obtain their autograph in person. Each autograph acquired at an auction house has been stringently analysed, compared to other known authentic signatures, and backed up with provenance.
We have accrued a wealth of experience in this sector and we are on our way to becoming the number one source of signed memorabilia in the UK. Our credibility was recognised In 2015 when we became an AFTAL Ltd approved autograph dealer. AFTAL ltd work with the police and trading standards to help stamp out the problem of fraudulent memorabilia in the UK, and we are proud to have become recommended dealer number 160. You can find more information regarding the AFTAL, and what they do at www.AFTAL.org.uk.
Each of our items come with a holographic certificate of authenticity, and we offer a 100% money back guarantee on all of our autographs, should any of our autographs fail a third party authentication service, then we will offer a full refund and this stands for life. This includes the two major authenticators in the USA, PSA and JSA, along with any approved AFTAL authenticator, or graphologist with a recognised diploma in the subject. This is how much confidence we have in our items. Below are a list of resources regarding third party authentication services.
