One Response to Joe Montana Autograph Value

    I have a rookie card of Joe Montana that was unofficially graded by a former Beckett employee as a possible pristine 10 a few years back. It has remained in it’s protective case except for one night when I had dinner with Joe as he was speaking in Nashville. He was kind enough to autograph it for me and I have kept it in the protective case since. Several Lawyer and Doctor friends who are ND alumni have offered me between $10,000-20,000 for the card but my patient who sells hard to find menorabilia says I should get it graded first and consider an auction since he is unaware of any 10 rated card that has ever been opened for an immediate verifiable autograph like this from Joe. How would I go about getting it graded/authenticated etc. I know the autograph is real because I watched him sign it, but not certain that it is truly a pristine 10 and if it was, not sure if Joe touching it to autograph it would have decreased it from a pristine 10?
