Need advice. TTM Autographs
When I was younger, I did a lot of through the mail autographs. It was such a joy going to the mailbox to see if I received anything that day. In good faith I assumed these signatures to be from the players that I had written to. I understand signatures can be "clubhouse" signatures, auto penned or done by a secretary or something. I attached a photo below of some of the "bigger name" athletes that responded to my request. I'd like to get these authenticated for not only from a value aspect, but for my own peace of mind. My question is this, what route should I go? I would like to have these slabbed as well. I have never done anything like this before and just looking for some insight.
Thanks for reading. (Sorry for the bad picture, no scanner and my camera is junk too.)

Nice TTM autographed cards. Both BGS and PSA have services that authenticate and slab these types of cards. Both are good so it's more of a personal choice on which company to go with.

Currently collect: NON-SERIAL NUMBERED autos, Topps, and Topps Chrome cards of players in Bengals uniforms.

RE: Need advice. TTM Autographs
Frankly i dont like becketts auto authentication, i prefer psa, plus they give you the option of having it encapsulated, i dont think you get that from beckett.

Also, and ive never dealt with them before so idk, i think i heard somewhere where you have to send the autos to jsa first then to beckett, this may not be true (it didnt make sense when i heard it either, so i hope its not) but thats why i prefer psa

PSA/DNA those. They will slab them for you and everything. Not sure but I think beckett would require a JSA authentication before they would slab it.

RE: Need advice. TTM Autographs
With the JSA-BGS partnership, cards are subbed to JSA which are then sent to Beckett for encapsulation and graded if desired. While I prefer BGS cases, in this scenario PSA/DNA does everything in house and pricing is a bit cheaper.
