Beckett Authentication is continuing to expand its presence into the non-sports market and will be attending a few entertainment-comic conventions during the month of September.
First up is FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention (https://www.fanxsaltlake.com/). Taking place September 6-8, 2018 in Salt Lake City Utah, FanX is a world-class pop culture phenomenon bringing celebrity guest panels, autograph signings, photo ops, cosplay contests and gaming competitions to the intermountain west.
With entertainers like Tim Curry, Evangeline Lilly, Jeff Goldblum, Rainn Wilson, David Bautista, Chuck Norris and Meat Loaf scheduled to attend there is a little something for everyone. The full guest list can be found on the website, along with scheduled times and autograph tickets.
Salt Lake City is an area that Beckett Authentication does not frequent too often, so even if the comic convention isn't your thing, this is the perfect time to bring your autograph items to be authenticated. We will be offering onsite authentication all weekend for previously signed autographs, turnaround varies with demand, but is typically a few hours.
Additionally, BAS will be attending the IC Collectors Convention (https://www.iccollectorsconvention.com/) September 14-15, 2018 in Franklin Tennessee. IC Collectors Convention is a convention "By Collectors, For Collectors" with tons of vendors, vintage toys, panels, artists, authors, movie props and guest stars signing autographs.
Headlining the convention is William Shatner along with Cas Anvar, Sam Jones, Marina Sirtis and Nick Palma, the full list of scheduled guests can be found on the show website.
At both events, BAS will be offering a $10 single-signed show signer special. With authentication fees typically starting at $20 per signer, this gives collectors the chance to have their items authenticated for 1/2 price. Keep in mind, this special is only valid for items signed at the show, previously signed autographs are subject to our normal authentication fees.
We have a few other "cons" scheduled later in the year, and we hope to continue adding them to our schedule in 2019. We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming shows and authenticating all of your autographed items!
