Who has the best/worst signature?
Some guys sign with pride, others just scrawl. I've always appreciated guys like Mickey Mantle (best signature, IMO), Frank Robinson, Whitey Ford and Harmon Killebrew .... Looks like they took their time and enjoyed signing. There are some that look like they want to sign nicely ... But they just have bad penmanship Smile
There are others that look like they don't really care. What do you guys think?

I've always loved Jeter and Chipper's auto.

Lance Lynn has the laziest auto and worst IMO.

RE: Who has the best/worst signature?
Jason Kipnis' auto is one of my personal favorites. It's right in that sweet spot of being unique but not sloppy or unreadable.

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.

RE: Who has the best/worst signature?
I love Dennis Eckersley's auto, and for some reason I like Drew Storen's sig even though it looks nothing like his name.

Carlos Gonzalez' auto confuses me, it looks like it could be a motorcycle.

All time worst

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.

RE: Who has the best/worst signature?
I think Musial , Bench and Mazersoski have some of the nicer sigs

The man is a legend but Willie Mays signature is just weird

I think Mays sig is a little strange because he is going blind.

Is that true? I did not know that. That would explain it

Yep, here is an article about him from a little more than a year ago.
