Default Faded autograph or not?

I have agreed to a deal with another collector for this card, but after seeing other blue Autographics cards from this set, on which the autographs look pretty sharp, I have to wonder whether or not the card below contains a faded autograph.

Not going to back out of the deal, but I would like to see what you folks think. If the signature is faded, then I will wait for another one to purchase then. Lesson learned.

Here are the scans:





Thank you so much.

I busted a few boxes of this recently and pulled a Blue auto that looks faded. Pack fresh.

I think the ink is changing color over time if they are left in sealed boxes to long.

So do you think that the card that I post contains a faded autograph?

Isn't it just the scratches on the magnetic case?

This is the correct term.. The color is changing (discolored) not slowly disappear or gone (faded). That's was two major problem for collectors who's collecting the autograph. If you were dislike with the card, let me know
