I'm still educating myself but would appreciate the input of people more knowledgeable ... I'm guessing these signatures on eBay are fan club facsimiles masquerading as the real thing?
They actually are autopen signatures.
How interesting, thank you. How do you spot the difference?
In this case, these same signatures frequently appear on these cards and are known to be autopens.
Yup...Autopen. The Fan Club sent these out from late 1963 until...I think...1968. They all had the same first name only "signatures. Some cards had all 4 "signatures" in black ink...and others had 2 in black and 2 in blue. These turn up on Ebay as being signed...but they're not.
Thanks for the info everyone.
