Ugly Autographs You Just Can't Get Enough Of!

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

First topic message reminder :


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?

You know it's bad when he does signings and they put a photo of the signature up saying "be aware this is what you will get" or at least along the lines of that. They did that last year at the MM show. But I don't blame them either, smart move. No one should complain then.

Its to bad he doesnt sign like he did in the 80's when he had a nice sig and you could read the whole thing.

I was researching DDP (wrestler) autographs and saw a lot of ones that looked like this:

I already have him on a HOF piece (bat) and it's signed on the handle with a VERY small sig.

The quality of his autograph may ruin the look of a HOF piece or 2, but his inclusion is a definite necessity on 300 win 3000 strikeout pieces. And truth be told, the biggest reason his graph looks that bad on HOF pieces or 300W/3000K pieces is because the rest of those pieces will have graphs from old timers, and they have better penmanship than ANY of today's athletes. Maddux's sig blends right in with any current team signed piece from any sport. It's gotten to the point where they're all such illegible scribbles that it's not worth the bother.

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

I started laughing when I saw these. How do they consider these autographs!?
