Default Such a nice signature

Now, from what I have read Fernando does not sign often, but still WOW!!!! I wish more people would take the time just to give back to us that still love the game. Heres to Ripken Jr., Mantle, Maris, Valenzuela, (haha funny to have him with those names) and all the other athletes caring about those who support them. Cheers

I agree. Some players are getting too lazy or just don't care at all. Gotta love the veteran signatures. Might want to add Ken Griffey Jr and Dale Murphy to that list as well

I agree too but most people would prefer a streaky 'BH' over a beautiful Paul Molitor, or Valenzuela!

very true about the Griffey Jr., and Dale Murphy. Didn't want to go on a naming spree lol so just left it at "all the other athletes caring about those who support them". I did not even think about comparing them as the "new age" athletes and the veterans, but I believe you do have a point. The vets seem to care a little more

You sign your name 3000 times and tell me it looks at the end like it did at the beginning. Part of the blame goes to the excessive print runs of autograph cards. It's easy to sit here and throw stones, but chances are that you'd do the same. And chances are that you'll also reply here and tell me that you wouldn't.

Look at Brett Lawrie, beautiful, artistic signature. Topps then requests he sign 5000 different cards and now this is what we're left with:

Nothing left but a small seizure of a signature. It should really make you appreciate the Felix Hernandez, Julio Teheran, Jose Fernandez, and Mike Morse's of the baseball community, but don't hate on those that do the same thing you would do

I agree..a beautiful signature 5000 times is too much to ask for..doesn't need to be 1500-2000 autos of the same person in almost every product over 2-3 years..

Its not just the quantity of signatures, its the fact these guys are young and modern schools no longer emphasize handwriting since everything is now done on a computer. I have actually seen stories about the fact that cursive is not even taught in some places anymore.

The whole point of this thread was to just give the guys that DO take the time the props they deserve, never said I wouldn't get tired of signing if I had to do it over 5000 times also. Thank you for knowing everyones feelings though Dr. Phil

Agreed. Mad props to Fernando for taking the time to sign a nice signature 34 whole times.

The point was that more players had nice signatures back then because they weren't asked to sign a ton of baseball cards. That statement is directly related to your topic, you douche. How the hell did I claim knowing anything about anyone's feelings? You just bored and looking to create friction where none should exist?

Probably signed that at 3am after crushing a case of Red Bull, knowing Brett.

Excellent theory, although you forgot to include the fact that the only marker he could find had the cap go missing days ago.

Randy Johnson's auto from this release is also a work of art.

Never have seen too many of Killebrew's but that is beautiful!! Have not seen the "Unit's" yet either, but he was the first player I started my first ever "true" pc with last year in 2012. Snagged one of his psa 10 upperdeck rookies as a starter. I had read in someone elses thread that was a pretty solid card to pick up and I have always liked Randy, and for the price I was very pleased. A sig card of Randy would be a sweet pick up for my next addition, thanks for the tip. Too the guy i called Dr. Phil (sorry if you are bald, a lot of us are) but you just came off wrong I guess, and if I interpreted you wrong, I was just going off you saying " you would do the same" when you hardly know us. So my bad if i offended you. Cheers to the hobby, great sigs, and getting to bs with fellow guys and gals who love this also (one of my favorite parts)

I may be a tad bit biased as well but I think Killebrew has the nicest signature. They are also amazingly consistent.

I think it's awesome how (relatively) vocal Killebrew was on the importance of the signature.

He was the reason Cuddyer went from this to this

Killebrew signature was awesome. Always took the time to make the fans happy. Great ball player and a greater man off the field!

I've heard that he is not the nicest of guys in person (although he was to me) but I do love his signature. My all time favorite......

Couldn't agree more... I was put in charge of signing our companies weekly AP checks. It was only 200-300 per week and just doing that drastically changed my signature.
