Default A Good Day?

I just visited a local antique store and found these three autographs in a rolladex card holder full of autographs. The signatures ranged from Elizabeth Taylor to Arnold Palmer. I pulled out these three and paid a VERY nominal asking price. I'm almost embarrassed to say what I purchased them for. They looked real enough to me to roll the dice as they were very cheap and worth the gamble. I know when a deal seems to good to be true it's likely not real. Nonetheless I'm looking for more informed opimions than my own. So what do you think?

No opinion on authenticity but the bleeding on the Paige and Maris would concern me. From what I understand old paper signed at a later date tends to bleed whereas contemporary paper signed in the moment does not.

Thanks for the input. I had not heard that before. I think a majority of them were signed in the late 70s to early 80s based on the dates a few of them had. They looked right to me but I'm no expert. The fact that these were mixed in with minor celebrities and players like Luis Tiant, Bobby Grich, Ken Singleton, and Mark Bellanger, eased my mind for some reason.

They look authentic I just know its a common tactic by forgers to use old paper to try to age a signature, but you can usually spot that deception when you notice how much the ink bled. Not saying that's the case here, just that its something I look for.

Hi Mike,
Great pickup!
All 3 of these are the real deal. Ol' Satch is particularly cool!
Congrats on your terrific find.

Not an expert myself, but I think you struck gold.

Thanks everyone. Based on the feedback I returned and purchased a few more. The three above were obviously the best. Nonetheless I picked up a Willie Mays, Nolan Ryan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sugar Ray Robinson, Howard Cosell, Rickey Henderson,,and Hank Greenberg. They were only $10 each so what the heck. Thanks again.

Mike
