I recognise that hologram sticker, type in 'hologram sticker' into ebay and you'll find ones for sale in the thousands that look exactly like that one with the serial numbers printed on them.

OMG that is terrible. My 6 year old could do a better Carrie than that. People need to realise that if they can fake the Auto then the COA can be faked too. If the auto seller is a member of UACC and or AFTAL then its kosher. These bodies take Autographs very seriously and anyone caught selling fakes face heavy serious penalties. Im sorry to say that the Carrie you have pictured is a fake. I have met her three times plus seen many of her auto over the years and this looks nothing like hers. The COA is not worth the paper its printed on. On the COA there is no mention of UACC or AFTAL that alone would send alarm bells ringing.

Considering the COA says it was created in 2012, but the email address on it is gmail, was gmail even around in 2012?

Coas are good depending who issued it. Beckett are good as you can check their website to check the exact serial numbered photo before you buy it. But you pay a premium for it.

Unfortunately that means absolutely nothing nowadays. You can add PSA,JSA and god knows who else to the list. If i want an autograph verified ill go through Beckett.
