Default question about which PSA DNA authenticator signed their PSA DNA letter

For those familiar with PSA DNA's autograph authentication team, would you know who signed this document?

Here's a link to "PSA Board of Specialists Expertise"

https://www.psacard.com/specialists

Not sure if it is signed by any of these individuals.

I've emailed PSA and heard nothing back in a couple of weeks.

Thanks, Scott

I don't think that signature is of any of the authenticators listed on their web site. Maybe a new one who is not listed yet.

It's a decent looking signature, albeit unrecognizable. They should indicate who it is though.

Seems ridiculous--and ironic--that they wouldn't print (identify) the name of their "certifier."

For the longest time, they have wanted their opinion to represent the company as opposed to any individual authenticator. It's all part of brand recognition, to be certain. Heck, I've seen LOAs signed by a woman who used to work in customer service! She's no authenticator, yet has the authority to sign a LOA? That makes no sense.

Well, it does say "on behalf of the authentication team"!!! Quite silly, but perhaps a spokesman rather than an opinionator. Sort of like the royal 'we'. If I had to guess it looks like it says George Clooney....

To be honest you probably wont get a response back from PSA.

Looks like George Costanza - previously employed as the Assistant to the traveling secretary for the New York Yankees.

So we've concluded Goose Gossage is part of the PSA DNA authentication team. Cool, I got another HOFer signature. 😂
