"My guess--and it's just a guess--is that the signature very much resembles a 1961 newspaper sports cartoon that he signed for me in the mid-1990s (see attached). When I sent him another sports cartoon to sign about a year later, he wrote that…"

"Yes... I was not implying these two signatures matched each other as an autopen would, but often celebrities use more than one autopen pattern. "

"Yes, so probably a secretary signing over a stamp?"

"These certainly appear unnatural. I am not sure if Ted ever used an Autopen, but both signatures strike me as having Autopen like traits. Deliberate, uniform speed and pressure... a little slow. Autopen or traced by secretary.... I doubt these are…"

"I've been selling my collection that I gathered TTM in the 1970s. Many of the autographs have my complete name and I don't have a problem with that. Interesting comment below about Neil Armstrong. He did sign it to my first and last name.…"
