So you caught the ball on now what Michael -- she is the vice president operations at sports memorabilia dot com he joins us from Miami -- are you caught the balls he got a baseball -- -- Major League game.
How do you authenticated.
No one in the same time how do you figure out how valuable it is.
Right well that's that's pretty easy personally caught the ball.
On you get a call to a company like cars sports memorabilia content and you and ask for authentication what you do is you'd actually they're sent the ball and with an example of how you I caught the ball maybe have a video of you catching the ball and then you -- -- proof hologram on there.
And that's that when you have the ball you can't take that -- often put on another -- say here's a home -- -- have five home run balls in the name Aiken 500 dollars apiece for each bomb can't prove programmes that for the number one thing you want -- -- for that ball.
Let me ask -- -- -- -- out of anything.
Didn't fall on how Michael how do you know if you're almost like an actuary you tell you you almost have to make that call you see an old baseball and you say you don't want.
Yeah this is really when the -- handles home run balls -- down -- how do you own a make that call.
It depends that nowadays there's there's represented is that the games sometimes and then I'll be better represented as -- actually go to the fan.
And now authenticate that box that can be a very high price -- if you have a a guy who's going for a home run record say you know when Barry Bonds home run record.
They actually switch up involves a company called PSA DNA.
I -- the authentication and actually there's peace invisible DNA type of material on the ball so when it goes into the stands that.
That -- can bring the ball TSA the NSA -- I caught the ball.
You guys inspected and then they know it's real.
For kind of an every day game basis it might be a little more tough you'd you'd probably have to have a represented about the -- -- and represented.
But there's definitely -- of -- of telling you know maybe there's a specific mark on the ball.
That you could find from a camera but did their that there isn't some tough situation for you might popular now and -- companies won't pass it has to be a 100%.
Guaranteed authentic then passes.
Because this stuff can be worth a lot of money so Chris alluded to the fact that a my son got a glove signed by man or man.
At one of the recent gains so.
If I were to be worth anything does he have to like preserve it I mean clearly should be outside playing catch with the glove -- -- -- -- -- very well might be right now yeah.
Buttons so what we did -- -- -- and -- how do you figure out how much summing like that is worth someday I mean.
Clearly I'm not paying for college with this club.
Yes well sorry preservation and that we want to -- of he definitely having some type of the case that's -- coated.
We have baseballs in our office just from being left out of the case they start to fade.
Particularly -- Mariano Rivera baseball in the office that you know the -- stating it definitely affects the value.
As far as of praising the glove.
-- -- I'm sorry back to authenticated.
-- yet the stadium you actually have to submit that to you with their party off the indicator.
What's fourth term they dot com has been doing is offering kind of quick appraisal opinions and it's it's a lo fi.
Our opinion first should use submit this to their player -- the indicator -- cost.
7500 dollars actually get the item authenticated which and it would come with paperwork.
The tamper proof hologram and then you can go ahead and post on -- -- like eBay but there won't be anybody buying without authentication papers or tamper proof holograms.
But you never know you could put someone through college with you know -- the piece of memorabilia that you get from country I mean.
You get a home run ball that's record breaking ball that you're talking a couple 100000 dollars -- if there.
Michael you guys -- sports memorabilia dot com sign players.
To contract so that they'll sign a certain out of things for you would you -- photos this and that.
We -- as a company don't but we have partnerships all the companies that -- -- signing athletes.
The very tough thing they have -- you make appearances every so often.
Pit sign a certain amount of pieces they've they might now why do certain -- are certain inscriptions that you -- but what we do.
Is we have partnerships with all these companies you have you know contractual obligations with these athletes for them to sit down and -- a certain amount of pieces that's.
Really today the only way -- you get 100% authentic.

What can -- most expensive thing you've seen sold out there are what is out there right now that has like top dollar Value Line it is -- did Jeter is it and they -- is it you know old school making -- all what's going for the most.
In these days.
Well the thing about guys like Jeter and A-Rod as far as value there there signing -- and it's the guys you either deceased or don't sign very much.
