Default Do You Consider This a REAL Autograph?

I saw some news on this start up. I think its a cool and innovative idea however do y'all consider this a real autograph?

It seems like they are about to add football players and some other sports as well.

It's an interesting idea and depending on how personal the message is might be a cool gift for somebody but it's most certainly not a real autograph. At best it's a facsimile.

No. It's an abomination to the hobby. You can get a real autographed photo (or other item) for the prices they're charging. Not to mention you can get many for free via ttm or in person at events, and sometimes just get a response from them for free via social media.

That company can't go under fast enough, but they won't, because morons will keep it in business. I want to kick everyone in the groin who started that farce of a company.

Not real, just stupid. Would you really pay Matt Dominguez $35 to say your name?

Would anyone consider this a real autograph? Even the inscriptions they put on here, customized for you, are just comic sans script or something from word, and not in that players handwriting.

These guys already have a heck of time bothering to find time to sign autographs, I would hate to see how long it would take them to log into an app, read personal messages, and respond to them.

For the price of some of those athletes you can get a nice certified auto. Are people actually buying this?
