* One way to protect yourself from the risk of buying from a “questionable” dealer is to only buy from a UACC Registered Dealer as UACC Dealers MUST adhere to a strict code of conduct. It is important to note anyone selling fake autographs CAN NOT be a UACC Dealer. Accordingly it is no surprise you may encounter a “suspicious” dealer that disparages the UACC for obvious self-serving reasons.
