Hello everyone, like a lot of other people right now, I'm watching a lot of Kobe Bryant merch flood online.  Some are real, but a lot are probably not.  I saw one listing of an autograph that looked very clean, but the COA was a no-name.  However, there seems to be a photo of the item being signed.  Not sure what to think and would appreciate any thoughts and opinions.

Steve Grad with Beckett is the most experienced on Kobe. He's my go-to expert.

An online opinion (Signature Review) is $10, and well worth it: https://www.beckett-authentication.com/services/signature-review

I actually reached out to the artist who painted this because I was interested in another piece- same image/different signature style /same location on litho. The artist confirmed he has never worked directly with Kobe so I would estimate most nearly all signatures of the piece took place outside the presence of any authentication.

The signature looks fairly strong but I would be concerned about the legitimacy of the pic of him signing it. Signature almost looks too clean to be done hanging out a car. With these type of lithos I can imagine they could be reprinted many times, giving a forger plenty of opportunities to chip away at a nice replica signature.

Just my two cents. Probably worth an expert opinion regardless
