Hello Autograph Collectors! I am Brand new to this great forum! I have recently purchased from a Longtime MichaelJackson fan, a set of (what I hope are) Signed Michael Jackson photos. The PHOTO BELOW being 1 of them.
Wondering if you can render for me your most valued opinion as to whether the Signature on the PHOTO BELOW is "likely" to have been genuinely signed by Michael Jackson. I AM AWARE that their are AutoPenned signatures which are very similar to the signature in the photo below, but is it possible that the signature in this photo is not an autopenned signature? Because after all, isnt an autopenned signature derived from a original genuinely signed signature? In fact, I have seen another signed MJ photo with a signature which looks almost exactly like the1 shown in this photo and that signed item was authenticated by psa. So Im thinking they authenticated that signature, knowing that their was a known autopenned specimen which was very similar in appearance. Your thoughts?
Your Valued opinions are MOST appreciated!
Question4u James. Have you read my notation in my request regarding the "possibility" that this is an autopenned signature?
but is it possible that the signature in this photo is not an autopenned signature? Because after all, isnt an autopenned signature derived from a original genuinely signed signature?
Its either autopen or someone's version of copying an autopen. While autopens are copies of original signatures, ones signature is never "that" close. If you sign your name twice on paper, you cannot lay one over the other and have them nearly matched stroke per stroke.
There are also a few versions of the autopen of MJs - usually the noted difference is the J stroke is higher.
Thank you for your valuable insight and I do agree with your views,
but, I believe you are stating that this signature is an EXACT replica of a known autopen and I have searched online and have not found an EXACT replica of this signature. Your reply suggests that you have seen the EXACT same signature elsewhere? Or are you saying that you have seen a "similar" autopen styled signature elsewhere?
Check the top of this discussion you'll see the same signature.
