The NBA Authenticated Program provides a standard for authenticating
League and Team autographed and game-used items. Using a tamper-proof hologram sticker, certificate authenticity and an online verification resource,
fans and collectors will be assured that the items in this program are either autographed by the actual player indicated or used in an actual NBA game
Every item in the NBA Authenticated Program will be affixed with a tamper-proof hologram sticker (shown to the right) that includes a unique ID
number. A certificate of authenticity will accompany each item and will also have a tamper-proof hologram sticker affixed with the same unique
ID number to create a match. All NBA Authenticated items will be tracked by the NBA and available on NBA.com for fans and collectors to verify the
authenticity of each item. The authenticity of all autographed and game-used items in the NBA Authenticated Program will be certified by an
NBA or NBA Team representative.
