FREE OPTION
Review a Walt Disney
Autograph From Your Personal Collection
(Private parties only.  Does not include dealers, auctioneers, etc.)

A preliminary opinion of authenticity by email is free for any Walt Disney signature you currently own and that is not yet posted for sale/auction on the internet or in any catalog and has not been within the last 12 months.  This free opinion is a brief email from Phil Sears stating that the signature is consistent/inconsistent with Walt Disney's authentic autograph for the appropriate era.  

To receive a free opinion, simply email help@phil-sears.com and attach a good image of your Walt Disney signature.  State that you or your family have owned the autograph for more than one year and you'd like a free email opinion. 

Additional Information:
This is a preliminary opinion based on a photo you send; it is not a Certificate of Authenticity.  I only issue Certificates of Authenticity after an in-person examination at an additional cost.  

If you receive a free opinion which is negative and you ask me to write a more detailed explanation of what is wrong with the signature, the cost for a detailed reply is $100.  

 

$35 OPTION
Review a Walt Disney Signature You Are Thinking About Buying or Selling
(Includes signatures for sale, auction, etc. or acquired in the last 12 months and all Walt Disney signatures owned by or on consignment to dealers, auctioneers, brokers, etc.)

A preliminary opinion by email for a signature in this retail/commercial category is $35.  This opinion is a brief email stating the signature is either consistent or inconsistent with Walt Disney's authentic autograph for the appropriate era.

The majority of "Disney" signatures I am asked about are not authentic- so I encourage you to save yourself a load of trouble and check the authenticity BEFORE you buy.  It can be hard to get your money back after discovering you've bought a bogus autograph for hundreds or thousands of dollars!

 To receive a $35 opinion, simply: 

1) Click on this "Add To Cart" button to pay
(there is no shipping charge or sales tax for this service)

2) Email help@phil-sears.com and attach a good image of your Walt Disney signature. 

Additional Information:
This is a preliminary opinion based on a photo you send; it is not a Certificate of Authenticity.  I only issue Certificates of Authenticity after an in-person examination at an additional cost.

If you receive a $35 opinion which is negative and you ask me to write a more detailed explanation of what is wrong with the signature, the cost for a detailed reply is an additional $65.  

 

$150 OPTION
