If you get a jersey autographed by a player at the stadium...is there an area where you can get it authenticated at GABP? Or would I have to look elsewhere for a legit company to authenticate it?

Sometimes when I see a fan catch a foul ball, I see a GABP employee give them a paper or escort them somewhere. Is that so they can have the caught ball dated and authenticated?

If so would the same rules apply for a jersey signed that day.

Thanks
Keith

Not sure if they still do this but the Reds used to give out "Honorary Contracts" if a fan caught a ball.

I have no idea, but I doubt they do that. They do it for baseballs to authenticate they were their property and are real game used. I know my minor league team here does it, but pretty sure they wont do random autographs (I bought a game used signed jersey once and asked them to authenticate it, said the reciept from the sale was all they could do). Plus they would have to see the signature take place to honestly authenticate it.
