Default Getting Auction LOAs upgraded to full cert - I know its been discussed before

I searched the forum and found a previous thread regarding Auction LOAs and so I know most people's opinions of them on here already. But has anyone ever submitted an item with an Auction LOA for a full authentication and had it fail full authenticity? I'm looking into an item with an Auction LOA from both PSA and JSA. The Auction LOAs were from an auction that took place in 2008 and I know/understand that there were limits on how long the Auction LOA could be "upgraded" to a full authentication, but my concern is with the chance that it could fail full authentication.

you have about 30 days to upgrade it after the auction. it's a waste of time though.


but to answer your question, yes, an item that had an auction loa could very well fail authentication. its because their opinion changes with the wind.

some people use their auction loa in place of a full loa. it doesnt make any difference. the reason they make an auction loa in the first place is to get you to pay twice. you pay th higher price at auction that an loa'd item will bring, bu then when you get the item, you find out it doesnt have a "full" loa. so they sock you again for the full loa fee.

There is the auction cert , then the upgrade auction cert for just a few dollars more , then the super duper AAA+ VIP cert which costs more but what the heck you only live once, THEN the USDA approved ultimate zircon encrusted gold cert....and of course the best one of all is the platinum cert which Ed McMahon delivers to your house with a limo and ballons

Opps Ed McMahon WOULD have delivered the Platinum COA but he has already been "slabbed"

Ed McMahon already.... slabbed ......good one.

Had a Mantle item that I actually was the auction winner for and it came with a JSA auction letter. Sent it in promptly ...... they failed it. Kept my money and gave me a credit. The auction house refunded my money and swore JSA examined that item thoroughly because some other items front the consignor had problems. Said JSA actually examined it about three times before passing it.

I believe the platinum PSA/DNA LOA has an Alex Rodriguez event worn jersey swatch on it.

Psa guarantees that pre-certified items will pass full cert. you have 60 days to get the discounted price, but it will pass even if you wait longer.

Thanks for the information, it was hard to locate amongst all the sarcasm in the thread!
