Certificate of Authenticity
Every signed product is issued with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by our Managing Director, which guarantees that every item has been hand-signed. The certificate includes many security features to avoid duplication and protect your investment.
1. Quality of printing & paper
The printed lines and colours of the many intricate patterns on our Certificate of Authenticity are sharp, clear and free of smudges or blurred edges. The paper is high quality, textured and of a heavier weight than normal paper.
2. Integrated image
Each Certificate of Authenticity also includes either an example image of the product or a small photo of the individual signing the product.
*Images are for illustration purposes only and the product/signature location & size my differ slightly.
3. Hologram seal
A security bespoke A1 Sporting Memorabilia hologram seal that shimmers and animates when tilted is included on every Certificate of Authenticity.
4. Online verification
The name and authentication code of every item is printed onto every Certificate of Authenticity. By entering the authentication code into the A1 Sporting Memorabilia website you will be able to view more detailed images of the signed item, a detailed description and if available photos of the individual signing the item.
5. Signed by a member of the A1 team
Every single Certificate of Authenticity is also signed by a member of the A1 team - to guarantee that the item is genuine and hand signed.
