Meet the Team
Gerard Starkey and Mike Russo, Founders of Sports Authority Authentication Services (SAAS) have over 50 years of experience in the sports memorabilia and collectibles space and have World Class Michael Jordan Collections.
As sports memorabilia Experts, SAAS is able to offer pure authentication of game-issued or game-worn items as well as photo matching and attribution of these items to specific moments.
SAAS prides itself of their unique expertise of being able to robustly bring the above technical analysis together with in-depth storytelling and provenance review to produce an end-to-end pack for collectors that uncovers every detail of the item being reviewed.
SAAS has worked with brands such Jordan, Nike, Christies, NBA, Klarna, Stadium Goods, and retailers across the globe advising on marketing campaigns, storytelling, installations, exhibitions, valuations, and educational content.
SAAS’s main goal in the space is to educate the community and his theory is that once you fully understand the collectibles you own, then only they can you fully enjoy and value them.
