Default Printing v Cursive?

Are there any well known players who as a matter of course just printed their name and didnít sign in cursive? Canít think of one but am not an autograph guy.

Many of the (vintage) signed Negro League balls that you see have more printed names than scripted ones. Also some signed baseballs from MLB from the 1910's you will see some names printed. I have a Chief Meyers where he printed his name instead of scripting it. Not sure of any well known players who did it routinely however.

Of the more modern HOF players, George Brett and I believe Robin Yount both signed in printed letters as opposed to in cursive very early in their careers.
I recall seeing/ getting autographs of this nature for both of these guys.

Billy Hamilton was known to print his name, as well.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the only known signature of Dick "Cannonball" Redding, the great Negro League pitcher. Redding was illiterate.

I've seen several items from the 1913-14 World's Tour with printed "signatures" of Jim Thorpe and Buck Weaver. Walter Mails (1915 Major League rookie) and longtime PCLer, sent out printed autographs up until he died in 1974.
