Ugly Autographs You Just Can't Get Enough Of!

Post by coachk28 on Wed Dec 14, 2011 10:32 pm


As sports fans and autograph collectors we all have our favorite athlete/autograph to collect.

But how does it make you feel when the autograph of your favorite athlete is nothing but random scribble? This case seems especially true with todays athletes.

Are there any athletes in particular you love, but they have just the ugliest autograph of all time?

I would like to start this off with Greg Maddux. My favorite baseball player of all time and my idol growing up as a pitcher.

He probably has one of the worst graphs of all time. You're lucky if you get anything that comes close to resembling a G or an M.

I spent big money on him at the Mount. Mem. Nov. Show... And I was lucky enough to get a pretty darn good graph (good as you can get for him), especially compaired to the crap I saw other people had while waiting in the PSA/DNA line.

Regardless of how ugly it is... I can't wait to meet him again and get more graphs.

Yordano Ventura

Not one of my favorite players, but a good prospect for the KC Royals who played for the local Kane County Cougars this past year.

I've gotten him in person and he basically starts out with a circle that he overlaps about 3 times...pretty hilarious finished product. Take a look at the below link of an example i found on ebay:

What does his current graph look like?

I've got a bunch of vintage 60-70s Holtzmans... they aren't that bad.

It's nano actually lol. It's from McDonalds, in Canada only I believe. When you open it up, you'll see a tiny figurine of Ovi inside with his facsimile autograph on the stand.

Many of the players today have illegible scribbles. The old days of guys signing a nice readable name are all but gone at this point.

Rather than highlight the scribbled, we should be remembering the nice signatures...

Gil Hodges, Steve Garvey (in the day - his has gotten worse), Bench, Killebrew, Snider and many others had great signatures.

While this is getting a little off topic from sports...

I'd like to add Han Solo and Indiana Jones to the list... that's right Mr. Harrison Ford!

His autograph has gotten pretty bad over the last 20 years or so!!!

Here is a vintage example when the Star War/Indian Jones movies first came out back in the 70's-80's.

Pro-Basketball and Football players in general have the worst autographs...I think because most are too dumb to sign their own names...

Examples:

I do love Geronimo Gil's half-a-mustache signature Smile

I agree...Maddux is awful but I continue to graph him where/when possible.
