Game Used Authentication Services

KSA Certification's game used authentication process is a very detailed look at various characteristics involved in determining the legitimacy of a game used item. Be assured that every detail of the item is closely examined and compared with our information and photo database. You can feel confident that your game used item has been expertly certified by KSA!

Once your game used item has been examined, it will be given 1 of the following 3 designations. Authentic, which will be accompanied by our Letter of Authenticity, Rejected which will be accompanied by our Letter of Opinion, or Inconclusive (rare) which will be accompanied by a Letter of Opinion.

All game used items given an authentic designation by KSA will be assigned a certification number that is recorded on our tamper evident decal that is affixed to either the item, or the Letter of Authenticity.  All Letters of Authenticity are marked with our company seal to discourage counterfeiting. Pictures of authenticated items are stored in the private KSA database and can be requested by email with a certification number. Finally, the certification number is recorded in the KSA Game Used Database with it's corresponding information.
