Default leaf originals rowdy piper

Is it just me or did piper sign the cards in a different style. I have 2 of his cards, I will post the pics later on, but the signatures look very different.

Hmm. Think the top one just looks like maybe he started out with a different idea on how to sign these particular cards, but was advised not to or thought better of it after the fact. Most of his signatures look like the lower one on this card. Think that was where Leaf intended them to sign.

This. Great find though, way cool. I prefer the crazy sig, personally.

I like it when wrestlers think about what they are working with. With the top being mostly white it's not an issue signing anywhere.

Awesome!

I didn't realize it until after i got both cards. If the pics were bigger and brighter you can see the sigs are completely different, almost like someone else signed them lol. I hope thats not the case though.

Is one redemption, and the other from packs?

He could have signed the cards on different days (as if that might make a difference).

All the ones I can find online are signed at the bottom.

I'd guess he started signing on his image, and then switched to signing on the bottom for most of the cards.

I'd have to see a better picture, but they both look signed by the same guy to me. Think it's only natural signing in a straight line and then on top of each other would produce a slightly different style of handwriting. The P is the most glaring difference, but I suspect they are still the same signer.

No question it's just way he signs. He does a little variation in R on if he signing horizontal with more space vs vertical.
I have his Sport King auto and he did same thing.

Yup, this. Plus how often do you sign your name the same exact way? I hardly sign a hundred things per day and my signature stuff comes out goofy on occasion. You can tell his is legit due to the Os and how he starts his Rs and Ps.
