Hi, could anyone tell me if this autograph is authentic? I would be really grateful!

When was this signed? Closer to his touring ending? 

I have no idea to be honest, I came across it looking through an old book store on ebay!

I am so picky when it comes to my BB signatures. Me? I dont like it. I can show you that same book, signed and you can see what I am talking about. 

Thank you Michael, I appreciate your opinion!

No worries man! 

If it helps for comparisons now or later, here's the pic of my 4 obtained ip over 4 opportunities back in the day, no longer own them though, just happened to still have images. 

Thanks Todd. You can see what I mean by the BB not looking correct. Even when B rushed, that always stayed the same; except for his very early signatures where he spaced the two b's 

Thank you Todd.

Just wanted to share my last addition. Finally I was lucky to obtain a double signed bill from the JVC Super Sessions from 1992. B. B. King and Robert Cray both signed on huge, thick (approx. 27 x 27 cm) gold framed boards.
