Global Authentication Inc?
I was just curious if this is a reputable company or not. I have heard of it but not sure if they can be trusted for authentic autos. Any feedback would be appreciated.

GAI used to be a pretty reputable company. I am not sure if there was some issue there but they have tailed off in the last few years and are not really looked upon too well in the hobby. PSA, BGS and SGC really are the big three. GAI old holders are reliable but their expertise was unopened material and they also graded star co bagged sets.

I would looks for your auto in a psa/DNA slab or a bgs/Jason holder. Just my opinion.

You're thinking GAI as in Global Authorty Inc, which did/does graded cards. The original post was asking about Global Authentication Inc, which does autograph authentication.
With that being said, GAI the autograph authenticator has had some serious accusations made about it's reputation over the past year or so. There are A LOT of people who won't touch anything that has a GAI COA, as they consider it worthless. Personally, I have a few GAI certified autograph items I got a long time ago, but I am not buying anything else with a GAI COA.
