Even if unsure about the signatures, is anyone able to speak to the legitimacy of the COA, please?
Atypical. Not even close. Sorry, Molly.
Thanks, Mike. I had fortunately come to the same conclusion.
James Gandolfini is tough because his signature is not consistent. I sent him a couple photos in 2000 and he signed one of two for me and JSA passed it. I have a Fans Of the Game certified card of him that has some similarity but not real strongly. Possibly because the card was on a very small silver strip that would have no doubt constrained his signing to a very small surface. I wouldn't bet the house on it, but I'd lean towards this Gandolfini being good. That lean in part is because of the Imperioli sig.
Michael Imperioli's signature is real IMO. When I have a bit more time, I'll dig out my examples and post them.
I ultimately passed because of Vincent Pastore’s signature, which usually follows the P with a capital A and doesn’t have the flourish at the end. Van Zandt is also an inconsistent signer and I couldn’t find another example where the final T flicks back in from right to left.
I’m not sorry I passed because I think it would’ve struggled with JSA/PSA/Beckett, but my gut feeling is it’s just an early example before they settled into their signatures and also weren’t churning out these cemetery pics.
