JSA is the foremost autograph authentication service in the world today, enabling collectors to enhance the value of their signed collectibles with a JSA Letter of Authenticity. A representative from the company will visit Bases Loaded from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14. Please visit www.spenceloa.com for more information regarding authentication services.

On Saturday, Feb. 15, Bases Loaded will take part in the one-day Sports Card Expo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Clarion Hotel, 8250 Park Road, Batavia. Athletes scheduled to sign autographs at the event include former Buffalo Bills Don Beebe, Scott Norwood and Lou Piccone, along with former Dallas Cowboys greats Danny White and Bill Bates.

And from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, Bases Loaded will host Charles Stabile, regional sales manager with Beckett Grading Services. Beckett provides collectors with the most thorough, consistent and accurate grading efforts available in the industry. Your BGS-graded cards will be returned in a unique, protective cardholder. Beckett uses an easy-to-understand 1 to 10 point grading scale to rate sports cards, which are graded on four key categories: Centering, corners, edges and surface. Grades from each of these key categories will be considered in determining your card's final overall grade. Beckett also grades non-sports cards, photos, magazines, pocket schedules, gaming cards and tickets. For more information, please visit www.beckett.com.
