Does anyone know how much this is worth?
 
It's a Nolan Ryan Sandy Koufax autographed picture. It was bought back in 1990 for 138 dollars. I have the original receipt. It doesnt have a certificate of authenticity but has to be 100% real. I've collected a lot of memorabilia throughout my teenage years but always had the certificate. Make a long story short a neighbor of mine got evicted from her home. She was 60 years old with stage 4 cancer and couldnt afford to pay the rent anymore. The guy was a real dbag that owned the home. Anyway she had a huge dumpster of stuff and she said we could take whatever was in it that we wanted. My god was there some extremely valuable stuff in there. Found this in its original box. WAS NEVER OPENED!!!. I want to know what this thing is worth. heres the ebay link. if anyones interested in it let me know im willing to sell thanks!!!!

Hmm, well, that's tough. Alot of people, myself included, wouldn't pay nearly what this might be worth without some sort of certification that the signatures were real. Its too easy to sell forged stuff, and let me make it clear that I'm not accusing you of that at all. But. the certificate of authenticity is HUGE for me when buying signed stuff. It gives you someone to go after should you eventually find out its not real and helps you sell it later on. The purchase receipt, IMO, is almost useless, unless the company that sold it is still in business, well-known, and respected.

I have no idea what this might be worth. I'm more of a signed ball guy, not pictures. With no certificate, I might be willing to pay half of what it might be worth but no more. Its really a roll of the dice at that point and unless you got it certified, which can be done btw, the risk to the buyer is pretty great.

Good luck

I think its PSA. They can authenticate signatures for a fee. You mail the pictures to them and they can issue something saying their genuine.

You should sell it and give her the cash to help her out, she sounds like shes in a really rough spot and personally id feel terrible making money off of her belongings that she threw out after she was just evicted from her home.
