Default Elvis autograph URGENT question Help

I have a chance to pick up a magazine signed by Elvis Presley and Pat Boone. The woman at the collectible store is offering it for $30 because it is not authenticated but I could tell it was actual ink on the magazine. Is it worth the risk not authenticated?? I am traveling and I have to leave soon. Help is appreciated.

From comparisons to other of his autographs, it looks legit

$30 is worth the risk. If it was $300, hell no.

One Problem here (one of many) is that it's a collectible store.

If its an even semi-competent manager/owner who thought the autographs might have a "reasonable" chance to be real, they would put in the $ to authenticate it.

If the underlying item has value on its own, I could see throwing away $10-20 to take a chance. But 999 times out of a thousand, it'll be fake

The item itself is worth about $15 and I could easily tell that the store was far from competent. It was clearly run down and smelled like crap when I walked in.
Thanks for the help too.
