Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Beware of these forgers. The sell on ebay under the ID's of gridironlegends and gridironauthentics_direct.

They sell all the big names and have a never ending supply. They will sometimes use photos of authentic items but send you the forgery. The old bait and switch. You end up getting garbage that WILL NOT pass third party authentication.

I know of one person who sent 20 items in and only 3 passed as authentic! They have sold thousands of fakes and if you ask for info about authenticity, they ignore your email.

These people need to be in prison for what they are doing. Ripping off thousands of people.

 If they sell Tom Brady Tri-Star items, why do they not put it in the description? I rarely see them selling Tri Star items. It's always the same bogus GA "COA" with a picture of Brady during a signing from his rookie year. They are selling Brady mini helmets for $200? No way! It's impossible. Not for Brady's signing fee on the very rare occasion he does do a signing.  He rarely even does a signing with Tri-Star, yet this seller has a never ending supply and has been sellingf these for almost 10 years, never running out. Same with many of the other players. The numbers don't add up.

Gridiron's math doesn't add up -- they are frauds

AUTHOR: Teddychan - ()

Gridiron purports to sell items from paid signings only as shown by their signing photos.

Gridiron's actually selling prices are below (in some cases WAY below) what the athlete charges legit companies per autograph, NOT INCLUDING THE ITEM COST OR EBAY/PAYPAL FEES.

Gridiron has never run out of inventory of anyone including Junior Seau who has been dead for a year.

Player agents and legit memorabilia companies have stated that they haven't done any recent business with Gridiron, if at all.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell what's going on.

Come up with some proof. Post up JSA and/or PSA-DNA certificate numbers of the items you had verified. I have a JSA LOR (Letter of Regret) with 6 different points why the autograph I purchased from them is a fake.

Gridiron authentics

AUTHOR: Terry Swanbeck - (United States of America)

I have purchased a few items from  Gridiron Authentics and never had a problem with any of them they all look and are legit. I have used 3rd party companies to verify all of them with never having a problem. They appear to be a good legitimate company to purchase items from. I think your complaint is not valid.
