There are some truly awful “autographs” out there. Rushed initials, single letters, indecipherable scribbles… these are the bane of the modern auto collector. Here’s a prime example (on a sticker no less!):Mr. Maddy, I’m sorry – your autograph SUCKS. (Nothing personal, loved your career at Tech. Also, don’t squash me like a bug. Please.) That said, a real autograph should look at least a little more like this:This is truly a Hall of Fame worthy autograph. This man has some pride in his name. (Being the league’s all-time career sack leader, he certainly should!) Full name, mostly distinguishable letters and a distinctive look that clearly defines whose name this is. I also like how his number is tacked on for good measure. That is how you properly autograph a football card! (Note that the autograph is inscribed directly on the surface of the card!)
PS – BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE!!!
PPS – GO HOKIES!!!
