Icon Authentics
 
I came across an item on eBay that had a LOA from Icon Authentics/American Icon Memorabilia. Has anyone ever heard of them or could provide insight?

No personal info listed about the actual authenticator on the website.
Operating out of a PO Box.
I do not know them but those two things make me pause.
Why not put up a link to the item on ebay?

From their site...

Any further questions?

So what do you need to become an autograph authenticator? A Ph.D. in a science field? A super high IQ? I'd love to know, so I can become one too, just like you guys.

This is the item in which I found the coa from them. The seller doesn't do a good job of clearly showing it.

I'm reading this as you are trying to be snarky to Richard?? Are YOU the authenticator for Icon?

No, I have no idea who is behind that site, but no one else here does either.

I just found it funny that they're throwing mud on someone they don't know, in a non-scientific field that has zero educational requirements and/or barriers to entry.

I trust Richard and Jim Stinson above anyone else. If they would have an issue with an autograph, I would stay away.

Perhaps it's because they've seen so many "authenticators" pop up and fade away that they are a bit jaded. Perhaps they're saying if you have no history, claim as your exemplar file a company that is known as a sham, and you aren't willing to put any name whatsoever with your company, you deserve some mud.

But perhaps these experts here are wrong. I suggest an experiment: you send something to these guys and report back your experience.
