How Reliable is Authenticity Verification

When you purchase a jersey, you want to make sure its authentic, right?  The only way to be 100% sure that the item you are purchasing is authentic is to research it yourself or view the research done by a reputable part, with evidence!

MeiGray supplies us with a great resource in their population reports.  It is a document that contains the serial numbers stitched in the jersey along with the information with the jersey including player, set, team, size, and other various notes.

Data systems are only as good as the data provided to them.  This begs the question, what data can you trust? 

This year, we have seen some new developments when it comes to special event jerseys.  We have seen inconsistencies in the representation of items being pre-sold or auctions, as in the case with the World Cup of Hockey jerseys where jerseys were marketed and sold without identifying their wear dates allowing the switch of sets among various purchase platforms.  The purchase, whether auction or sale, did not know if their purchase would be for a 1 period or multi-game jersey and in many cases this was not disclosed until delivery.

Game Worn Radio: Expos, Raffle, Authentication Trust

On this episode we discussed the past weeks NOVA expo, the upcoming Chicago expo and the raffles being held at the expo.  We also discussed an upcoming article regarding the trust placed in companies offering authentication verification.

Additionally, we try to convince Marco that “Happy wife, happy life” only starts after marriage and we try to convince her to allow him to attend the Chicago expo.
