Personal Item Autographs

A great number of people request Nolan Ryan autographs on their own personal items and Nolan has agreed to donate his time to the Foundation on a regular basis to do so. Each autograph comes with a hologram certification. Please note that we do not offer discounts on signing fees.

DISCLAIMER FOR SENDING PERSONAL ITEMS

The risk of all lost, damaged or unsatisfactory returned items rests solely with the sender. The Nolan Ryan Foundation will do its best to honor requests but ultimately the decision for size, color and location of signature, stats and hologram placement rests with the Foundation. The Foundation will take all actions necessary to ensure personal items are kept safe and returned in the same condition in which they were received but all risk is assumed by the sender of personal items.

Items received not accompanied by proper payment and documentation will be returned to sender if postage is included. It is not the responsibility of the Foundation to track down individuals who do not follow procedures. The Foundation will do its best to contact individuals who have not followed procedure but are not accountable for such items.

All personal items for autographs must be mailed/shipped. We will not accept in-person item drop-offs. Thank you.
