The Ins and Outs of Sports Memorabilia

- An astonishing 70%-90% of autographed memorabilia in the market is forged according to the FBI
- Always have signed memorabilia authenticated through the PSA/DNA or JSA

- Stamped signatures are of course worth significantly less than real autographs
- Pennants are also a watered down category in the memorabilia market
- Unless the book is a first edition, signed, and in mint condition from an athlete or coach; the value of the book is about the same as when you paid for it at the store

- Coating your hands with veggie oil before handling hot peppers can keep your hands from feeling the burn (gloves work too)
- Make sure to prevent cross-contamination when cooking up your favorite medley so nobody leaves the table sick
- Clean up food crumbs and grease around the oven and stove-top to avoid a catastrophic fire that would seriously put a damper on Taco Tuesday
