Who has the best/worst signature?

RE: Who has the best/worst signature?
I think it's great when the player actually puts in enough effort so that you can read his name and know who it is without having to look at the picture. Some of my favorites:









As for the worst? I saw a Jonathan Papelbon sig a while ago where there were only four letters and none of them were English.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.

Lance Lynn has the laziest auto and worst IMO.

Totally agree ... Jeter's is tough to make out, but distinctive.
Lance is one of the worst.

Another favorite I just thought of ... Mariano Rivera ... real nice auto.

As far as worst: To me, if it looks like a player just isn't creative with his signature or its real sloppy I hate it. A guy like Billy Hamilton comes to mind as what I'm going for.

Kipnis is pretty good .. never really noticed it as a stand out, but now you mention it ....pretty, pretty good!

BH is a bad sig .... lazy? Maybe. Too many sigs that day? Maybe. Who knows ... wonder if there's a better example out there?

Wow, yeah, I forgot all about Ecks! Storen's auto looks more like some logo or something, but not bad ... it's unique. I also like Ubaldo Jimenez' sig ... it looks like an O and a v, but it's fairly consistent and identifiable ...but like you mention about Billy Hamilton ... easy to forge (i'd guess)

LOL. ... yeah, now that you mention it, it does look like a Motorcycle. I just thought he liked circles. Smile

Ryne Sandberg, it looks like a long line of scribbles and it seems to be getting worse over the years.
Billy Hamilton has the laziest auto and if he ever gets super famous it will be very easy to forge.

I don't remember Sandberg's and I don't have any either. I'll have to look that one up.

I love Killebrew's. Matt Lindstrom's is awful.

Stan ... classic. Bench ... Bold.
Mazeroski? .... as a true Yankee fan, I'm not allowed to like anything about him. Smile but his sig is .... acceptable.

That's what kinda prompted this discussion for me ... I just got a card with Willie's sig and couldn't figure it out at all. But since he's legendary, I couldn't 'out' him.

Well, that's just sad. I feel lousy hearing that ... I feel bad for anyone in that situation, but it just seems even worse knowing that's happening to Willie Mays.

All great examples. Thanks!
Reggie Jackson would be another great auto. Fancy, yet legible.
Mariano Rivera, I mentioned before ... his sig is .... elegant.

Funny you mentioned Lindstrom ... the first time I got his auto on a card I really thought that the auto sticker was put on the wrong card! It looked like someone else .... even the first initial of each name didn't look like an M or an L. I need to find that card and post it. It's bad.
