Default Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain with a known COA

Hi All,

Here is a photo with a Wilt auto certified by a known company that deals with autographs.

If looks a little off compared to the other Wilts that I have seen, particularly the W, but maybe this was signed when he was taking his time.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the quick response Jim, I was trying to be polite with what looks wrong. Pretty much all of it. Someone must have affixed something from another Chamberlain onto this photo.

Just out of curiosity, who is the "known company that deals with autographs?"

i had heard he didnt like the stilt moniker. i dont know that he never signed that way, but i think it would be fairly rare. but for money, who knows what people will sign and how they will sign it.

just like sammy baugh hated 'slingin' Sammy Baugh.

someone asked sammy to sign it 'slingin' sammy baugh and he refused and told the guy he gets to sign it any damn way he wants, and he aint signing it 'slingin'


update:I do see a few Stilt insciptions on google images, so it seems he at least signed a few that way.

but this one doesnt look right, it looks too angular and rigid.
