"I don't like it either. Why would someone have Kobe do a signing and use those oversized $1.00 thrift shop markers instead of a Sharpie? Also, an early signature would be chronologically inconsistent with the use of this cheaply made,…"
"Not probably. It's OK. It's compressed. We're used to seeing her authentic signature spread over more space, but here, though compressed, the telemetry of the track is accurately typical. Might have been rushed, signed on the run (pen…"
"Not only the wrong penmanship, but the same penmanship. This is the type of multiple signature piece typically produced when the forger thinks he's good enough to forge all the signatures in one fell swoop, without even putting the pen…"
"The shape of the 3 shepherd-hooks, the end of the F, beginning of the i in Fisher, and the end of the signature are bothersome and do stand out as atypical to me. But aside from that, the consistency of the whole with other sigs on this picture…"
"Both signatures look very consistent with other of the samer photos accompanied by the Steiner COA. Of note, some have a disconnected first and second name, Carrie Fisher, and others don't; CarrieFisher.

"Difficult now. Carrie's passing, as did Stan's, simultaneously signaled legions of would be forging ne'er-do-wells to head to the kitchen table, with a Sharpie and otherwise worthless bargain box/thrift shop…"
"Looked at the first page of his 3000+ listings. Based on the solitary handwriting style of all of the signatures, it seems that he spends far too much time at his kitchen table with a stack of fresh 8X10s, without getting up for…"
"+1 The e and B partitioning, the telemetry of the end of the 'e' (that the forger tilted almost into a 'w', as many forgers do tend to do) and the starting point and angle of the 'B' is a disaster of…"
"Wow! What a start! Now you need the rest of the crew and by a startling coincidence, I've been quietly buying up every Joe Kirk (Bacciagalupe) autograph and now have the market cornered, I'm sure. So all roads now lead to me to…"
"Kammie is either overestimating our naivety, or underestimating "hers". I know for sure she's underestimating the collective hobby IQ of this forum's members.
That's a fresh Michael Jackson forgery "she"…"
No problem I know your are very knowledgeable about autographs. If you can, I posted a Stan Musial ball that I’ve been looking at, comes with a store coa, which means nothing to me. It’s posted on the authenticity opinions thread. If you can let me what your think I would very much appreciate it
I definitely won't be the last! It is obvious from your comments that you have a keen understanding of the hobby and will be a welcomed asset to this community. Your insights are on target and brought a smile to my face. Thanks.
