hi, i am trying to find out 2 appraisals for an autographed

Resolved Question:

hi, i am trying to find out 2 appraisals for an autographed jersey by alex rodriguez and a autographed baseball by derek jeter.

the jersey by A-rod is a Steiner limited edition autographed MLB 2005 AL MVP embroided with his stats, limited edition 25 out of 40 in excellent condition. On the steiner COA it states the above wording and also states exclusive to dads sports room on it also.

the jeter baseball is a Steiner autographed engraved Captain black baseball limited edition 11 out of 25 in excellent condition. this one also states on the steiner COA the above info and also exclusive to dads sports room. I wanted to know the values and what is dads sports room and would that take away from their value even though they are both authenticated by Steiner Sports. Thankyou
Steve

Hello,

The A Rod Autographed Jersey limited edition with a COA if framed and matted and if you can find the right buyer you can get around $2000.00-$2,700.00. A sports auction would be the best way if you are going to sell the items.

I could not find the exact baseball that you described, but I did find quite a bit of Jeter Balls for comparison: http://www.sportsmemorabilia.com/player/Derek_Jeter/autographed-baseballs/

The Exclusive to Dads Sports Room is most likey where they were signed and should not decrease the value. The Key is to find a buyer and how much they are willing to spend. Sometimes an exclusive actually raises the value rather than devalues an item.

I have been collecting for about 40+ years, and the collectables Market has gotten very soft in the past 10-15 years.

i am located in new york. could you recommend any sports auction or anywhere else to list. when you say auction, you mean a real auction house. not trying to sell it on ebay or something like that.


 


the jeter ball doesnt give me a date on the COA but a sports auction for this also?


 

Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hello,

You need a sports auction house and not Ebay. If you want to get top dollar, a true sports auction is the best. Yankee items usually do very well in a real sports auction.

These are some of the auction houses that can sell for you. Some are not in NY.

They will give you the best idea on value once they see the itmes and you cna lso register a reserve bid. These auctions are very familiar with sports memoribilia and should get you top dollar for your items.

sorry to ask another question but bot being to familiar with the process, how would they see the items? I would have to send them extensive photos of them or they actually have to have the product in hand to see if it is worth putting in auction and whats a normal comission?

Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

They do go on commission, but if they idtems are hogh dolllar they do the advertising to get the word out to the High Rollers who have the money to spend. Each auction house works differently. It is best to see if they want pictures first and then items in hand, and I know some want the items in hand and include them in an acution catalog. This Auction house in in NY. I would contact them and see what their terms are for the auction:

Lelands.com |XXXXX~ Suite H | Bohemia, NY 11716
tel:(NNN) NNN-NNNN| fax:(NNN) NNN-NNNN| email: info@lelands.com

They can give you an idea of what the best way to do this is. Many places all you to send pictures. The commission varies from each auction house. If you went to Sotherbys the commission would be much higher, that one of the sports auction houses. I paid the last time a 20% commission on a high dollar item, but they did all the work and got me a good price which I would not get on Ebay.
