LAS VEGAS, Feb. 11, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- With over 80% of all sports memorabilia sold online fraudulent or forgery, Las Vegas' leading sports collectibles store Ultimate Sports Cards and online trading card superstore are holding the first ever 'Authentication Station' this Saturday, February 16, from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at 3211 North Tenaya Way, Suite 103, thirty seconds from Cheyenne and I-95, directly across from Target.

"We'll be authenticating items all day on a first come-first served basis using the finest minds in the sports authentication industry, Global Authentication," stated Ultimate Sports Cards owner Jeremy Brown. "Global has been featured in nationally televised broadcasts as the most reputable and reliable third-party authenticator in the business. We're honored to have them on location at our store to service our customers at a nominal rate of $15 per item.

"We strongly encourage anyone out there who has an item that's been personally acquired, handed down, given or purchased to come in and get the peace of mind that Global's Certificate of Authenticity (COA) provides. Remember, even if you know the item is real, to later sell that item to someone else who doesn't know you, you'll need a real letter of authenticity," Brown added. "With a Global COA behind the item, your resale will be easier and far more profitable. And you can stop wondering if that signed Brett Favre jersey on your wall is a fake.

"Additionally, at 3:00 p.m. Pacific we'll be holding a showcase of 'Discovered Treasures' brought in for the event that the news media can review. We have some amazing items ready to be authenticated and we'll know the truth about their authenticity at 3:00 p.m.," Brown stated.
