Default Real or fake?

I'm looking to get my first Brandon Paul autograph and found this on eBay, I know it's hard to tell if it's real or fake because he has no certified autos yet, but looking at the description and the sellers feedback, what do you guys think
Illinois Brandon Paul Hand Signed 11x14 Photo | eBay

Also found this
ILLINOIS FIGHTING ILLINI BRANDON PAUL SIGNED PASSING THE BALL 8X10 | eBay

Personally, I don't know Brandon Paul's signature, but I wouldn't risk spending a single dollar unless I knew it was from a reputable source.

For these college guys, you're best bet is to catch them IP. I know down here in Alabama, the campis bookstore has a lot of the football players sign stuff and sell it for rediculous prices.

Anyways, there's too many fakers out there to just buy autos out of good faith anymore. Especially with these college guys who don't have any certified autos (unless its like an All-American game one) there is nothing to base the signature on.

Just my personal opinion, but this reminds me that I need to get my Duke IP autos cert'ed and framed.

Nobody's faking Brandon Paul autographs, but I know for a fact the second seller is legit. Not familiar with the first, but I doubt he's risking his reputation for a $30 photo.

The second seller sent me a pic of him getting the auto, and his ticket to the game he got it signed at, it should be arriving at my house in a few days
