  • Favorite/Least Favorite Signatures

    A lot of signatures are just scribbles, but some players' are high quality.

    I'd like to know some of your favorite and least favorite autographs (base your decisions on the quality of the signature, not the skills of the player).

    Top 4 Favorites: Felix Hernandez, Ernie Banks, Yogi Berra, and Fernando Valenzuela

    Bottom 4: Greg Maddux (Worst), Manny Ramirez, Mark Mulder, and Frank Thomas

    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

    Some of my favorites:
    Ray Durham, Joe Crede

    My 2 worst:
    Jack McDowell

    Jack McDowell possibly has the uglist sig I've ever seen.
    Ron Kittle
    Baseball is not a popularity contest. It's about one thing.

        Jay was a good player with a good popularity in and out of the Seattle area.

          These are all from my personal collection. These are all HOF'ers, but I also have others that look really nice that I don't have scans of.

            I don't have a picture on hand (all my autographs are packed up for our upcoming move), but So Taguchi signs in English and Japanese, which is really cool. I post it once it's unpacked.

              I don't have the pictures, but Juan Pierre and Willie Mays have pretty bad autographs. Willie's was just a scribble, and Juan's was like J-P-.

                Mays must have come a long way-my signed ball is well-signed. I love the older Barry Bonds sig. The new one is easy to read, but it lacks character. Monte Irvin's is no beauty. Stargell & McCovey have cool sigs. Just looked at my Mays ball, it is rather ugly after all (but I still dig it).

                        As you might guess, my fav is Al Kaline.
                        He always signs nice and clean and clear.
                        I have dozens of his autos.
                        1968 and 1984, the greatest ever.

                          Charles Gehringer has to have one of the nicest signatures ever.

                          The wosrt I ever saw was Mariners' prospect Ryan Anderson. It looked like it was produced by a two year old on crack.

                            I agree. My 1 year old daughter can write as well. (But she's not on crack!)
