I've seen a few different styles of his signature and this looks pretty close to some of them. It has a Barry Bonds hologram, but the link to verify it is no longer active.Any thoughts? Thank you…Continue

"Thanks for the response. Just a bit of confused, would you not consider this his full name signature? Also, is embossing/stamping and numbering the ball at a later date a common occurrence? I’m just asking because I have a similar Roger…"

"It looks like the signature he used in late 90s/early 00s.  My issue is with the serial number /730, commemorating what you’d think would be his 730th homerun.  My issue with that is he hit his 730th homer at the end of 2006.…"

"He's a polarizing figure, but definitely one of the greats aside from the steroids. Got a pretty good deal, so I scooped it up. Thanks to everyone for the comments and advice!"

"Ask for a better photo. It looks like it was taken with a camera phone from 2005. The signature probably looks better in person."

James replied to Derek Gardner's discussion Alex Rodriguez Baseball
"I agree.  It doesn’t really look faded to me, but as you say, Mike, it looks more like a pen issue than anything else."
