Default Quick Opinion on Williams, Mays, Diamiaggo, Koufax

Hello, I just found this forum and it looks great. I wish I knew about this place years ago. I have been collecting for 25+ years. I got Mickey Mantle as a kid and I've been hooked since. Anyway I was just wondering if I could get some opinions on if these Williams, Mays, Koufax, and Diamiaggo autographs are legit. Let me know your thoughts. I plan on keeping these I was just curious.

Thanks

Andy

The Nolan Ryan is definitely bad, and I don't like the Mays, DiMaggio or Koufax either.

Wow that's really disappointing. I got the koufax and ryan back in the late 80s as a kid. Thanks for your advice. The diamiaggo is a jsa that I bought recently

the dimaggio is
I think the ryan mays and koufax guys should say something. Just don't depend on one person.
He was wrong on the Dimaggio

Thanks Shelly. My dad got them for me as a kid on 88 89 and I'd be devastated of they were fake. I've had them displayed for almost 30 years

Here's an in-person Mays and Koufax from the same time period, so you can compare.

I would put them up on ebay. Then get a quick opinion. It will cost a few dollars put it will help to keep your piece of mind.

koufax mays and ryan.

Mays and Ryan look fine, I would comfortably buy both. The Ryan has an odd R-y connection but I think it is just the normal variance in a signature, looks like a Scoreboard type signature from back in the day.

Personally, I think they all look good., I am least familiar with Ryan, but the Dimaggio and Mays are very nice.

OK, I guess I'm just being overly cautious. I am most familiar with Nolan Ryan's autograph, as I have been collecting him since the 1970s, and he is my favorite player of all time.

On the Ryan, I don't like the combination of style between first and last name. In my experience, by the time Nolan dropped the "a" from his first name, he had already dropped the verticle transition line between the "R" and "y" in his last name. So, to me, if there is no visible "a" in his first name, there should also be no verticle line between the "R" and "y" in the last.

On the Mays, I don't like the waviness and multiple directions of the letters in his first name. If you look at the example posted after the OP's ball, you'll see that "Willie" is straight, and the letters all point to the top-left. On the OP's ball the writing is wavy, and the last two letters go in a different direction.

I'm less knowledgeable on the Koufax and DiMaggio. I don't like the waviness of the "y" in "Sandy", and something about the DiMaggio just strikes me as "off". Combined with my feelings on the Ryan and Mays, I just have to lump the DiMaggio and Koufax in with them.

Steve

The Ryan is fine...well within his variation of signatures...
Been collecting Ryan for over 30 years....I have hundreds of his autograph and I'd add this one with no problem.

I think they're all good as well. The Sauly, Fleece Mop and Dimaggio are 99.9%. The Nolan looks just like the Ryan I got from his foundation that the autograph has completed faded from the Selig ball.

I can only comment on the Ryan. I grew up in the same small town as him, played ball with his oldest son & have many autos.

It's definitely good.
