Default Help with this Jordan auto

Got this way back in 1996 from a friend of mine, and I just found it stuffed away in some boxes. Do you think it's a legit Jordan auto or just another fake? I would like to send it in to get authenticated, but want some opions first.






Auto is still pretty sharp, but looks faded in the pics.

Pretty hard to tell on this item, so i'm 50/50 on it... But leaning more on the real side.

However, back in 1996, a Jordan autograph was worth a lot! It was a big deal back then, so it brought in higher prices, so I would guess more fakes from back then, but could be real. haha I know this doesn't help, but it is what it is. Unless people get an item signed themselves there will always be doubts.

Thanks guys! I may take a shot on it and send it in to be authenticated. Any suggestions on where to send it? PSA maybe?

i would go psa, why not, it's the most popular authenticating service there for signed items. And yea man, if you ask me that's looks very real.

I know back before jordan started signing 100s of cards he used to sign like that on your hat with the prolonged and loopy m

Honestly I'm about 75% sure it's fake. Yeah send it in to PSA but don't be surprised if it doesn't go through.

THe "ichael" part just goes on way longer than he usually makes them, when he does make it long it usually would show peaks in the C H or L. This one is a bit flat throughout

Its a tough one though, who knows.
