I recently purchased a binder with ball cards and some photos from a lady whose son attended the basketball camps Achievements Unlimited here in NC in mid 1990s where Michael Jordan was there. I also have a photo from the camp with MJ in middle. There are 4 Jordan autographs ...2 on white pieces of paper given to campers where the NBA players signed...these have got to be legit... The 2 nicer pictures ..I think might be facsimiles but am unsure how to tell...The autographs look too perfect...any input..thx The first photos are the pieces of papers signed by the players at the camp and the last 2 photos are the 8x10s..might be facisimiles...thx for any help

Looking closer the nicer 8x10 signatures look identical in both photos...I am thinking maybe these photos were given to basketball campers with the stamped signatures....the first two photos the Jordan signatures have to be real...There are other signatures from the photo I have....Juwan Howard, Rusty LaRue, Rodney Rogers Dell Curry and Johnny Newman...
The two 8 x 10 sport an authentic signature, unfortunately they're both the exact same signature and thus, not authentic.
The second group signed item you have with the pen which wasn't cooperating is authentic in my opinion. I'm not sure about the one above it. Michael's signature did get less defined over time as he signed more and more. Earlier autographs you can often read Michael Jordan clearly. But that autograph is from 1998 and so not very early. I don't know whether it's some variation or not. I won't give an opinion on that one.
The two sport autographs are auto pen versions done by his agent at the time (F.A.M.E) or his foundation in Chicago as they both had a machine for these types of give aways for many years. The other signature on the white board is genuine in my opinion. Hope this helps.
Wanted to show this photo from the camp that was with the photos. Michael Jordan is in the middle...Rusty LaRue...Juwan Howard...Ron Harper...Blue Edwards....Kind of cool to go with the signatures...Does anyone know why the signature from 1998 is kinda different from 1997 Michael Jordan....thanks
