When I was like 14 when Josh Hamilton started with the Rangers, he took his time more when he signed and used to add stuff like verses or "best wishes". I was so psyched during ST of that year to get an index card signed by him with the "Best wishes" added.

What I think is even cooler than just a plain signature is when Japanese players sign normally with the Kanji instead of their "English" signatures. Darvish isn't allowed to write his name formally in Japanese because his name is not Japanese, so he always just writes in katakana I think. But I got Hisashi Iwakuma and Kyuji Fujikawa this year and they both wrote differently because I had Japanese cards of them to sign. Iwakuma even put his Japanese number instead of his Mariners #
