One of the pioneers of the autograph collecting field, T. Alan Hartman began collecting autographs in 1960. His heaviest collecting years were from 1960-1972, when he collected on almost a daily basis. He took a break taking a break from collecting for a couple of years in the mid-1970ís, then returned, collecting on a lighter, yet regular basis up thru the mid-1990ís. Since then, while remaining active in collecting, he has gradually decreased his autograph excursions, and today just ventures out for special occasions. He has met and obtained autographs from thousands of notables in sports, music, politics +. No other authenticator even comes close to matching Hartmanís level of First-Hand experience and longevity! Now, after many years of planning, Hartman brings his unparalleled experience to the authentication field.
What separates First-Hand Authentication from other authentication firms is specialization. FHAís T. Alan Hartman only authenticates the signatures of names he has considerable First-Hand knowledge and experience with. Why is this important? No one can be an expert on the signature of every celebrity who ever walked the planet. By limiting the names he authenticates to those he has vast First-Hand knowledge of, Hartmanís opinions of authenticity carry a unique type of credibility that other firms are unable to offer.
First-Hand Authentication specializes in the authentication of autographs of figures in sports, music, and other celebrities who were prominent from 1960-1972, and some beyond that time period.
