Looks like it just sold on eBay but what a cool thing to have gotten him to sign (presuming its legit).

Not sure what a JSA Certificate is but the manufacturer of this issue was not United States Postal Service as stated on the certificate. This stamp was issued by the United States Post Office Department and manufactured by the United States Bureau of Engraving & Printing.

JSA is a reputable competitor with PSA/DNA. Heritage Auctions has sold a couple of these (they were plate blocks) over the years.

Reputable? I don't think either is, though many people take their certificates as absolute proof:

I've seen some of PSA's slabbed and "graded" British cigarette cards. "Risible" would have been my adjective.

Ok guys, by reputable I mean an actual authentication company, not self certifying. JSA is at all of the big sports memorabilia shows and their opinions are accepted. The founder was an expertizer for PSA/DNA.

You can find fault with anybody if you wish. Google Philatelic Foundation certificate scandal.
