If you’re a Star Wars fan, are you interested in collecting signed photos from the cast of the movies. However, with the rise of counterfeit goods, it can be difficult to know whether you’re getting a genuine signed photo or a fake one. Here are some tips to help you ensure that you’re buying an authentic signed Star Wars photo.
1.Buy from a reputable dealer
One of the easiest ways to ensure that you’re getting a genuine signed Star Wars photo is to buy from a reputable dealer. There are many reputable dealers who specialize in selling signed memorabilia, and they will often have a certificate of authenticity to go along with the item. Also look for photo proof of the item being signed or ask the seller if the signed photo comes with a lifetime money back guarantee?
2. Check the signature
If you’re buying a signed Star Wars photo online, be sure to check the signature carefully. Look for any irregularities or differences in the signature compared to known examples of the actor’s signature. If you’re buying in person, ask the actor to sign a specific item, such as a poster or DVD, rather than a generic piece of paper. Some sellers on auction platforms sell printed photos, so copies of a hand signed photo. This can catch buyers out, sometimes these even come with a COA but is worthless.
3. Look for a hologram
Many reputable dealers will use holograms to authenticate their signed memorabilia. These holograms are usually placed on the item and verified through a database to ensure that they are genuine. Some place them on the front, we personally think this ruins the item. We attach two holograms on the rear of the autographed photo. One with a unique number and also our StarWarsAutographs.net hologram.
4. Check the price
If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Genuine signed Star Wars photos usually quite expensive, so be wary of anything that seems too cheap. Counterfeiters often try to lure in buyers with low prices. For example, an Alec Guinness signed Star Wars pic sells between £800-£2000. If someone has theirs listed at £200 then its more than likely not good. Some deals are out there so its a risk at times.
5. Research the seller
Before buying a signed Star Wars photo from a seller, do some research on them. Check their online reviews and see if they have any negative feedback. If they have a history of selling fake items, it’s best to avoid them altogether.
By following these tips, you can increase your chances of buying a genuine signed Star Wars photo. Remember to always do your research and buy from reputable dealers to ensure that you’re getting an authentic item.
