Default Authentic Hank Aaron?

I appreciate your opinions. The H looks different but like some I have seen depending on what year he was signing.

The guy is fine giving my money back but swears he stood in front of Hank and had him sign it to him (Dave). I know there is a sucker born every minute. But why would someone faked a personalized ball? There is actually more letters to analyze. Like in this one the Best Wishes looks quite close to those I have seen. Also, wouldn't a personalized ball with the person there be signed slower and with some variability to fit everything in? I am interested in learning. Full disclosure: I bought it for $24 from a person (who I don't know), who says he was there. Doesn't sound like the typical scam?

$24 for a signed (even personalized) Hank Aaron Ball sounds like a typical scam...take a step back and look at the whole presentation of the ball...real or not, it looks drawn. No consistent flow, just carefully drawn. Again, just my opinion.

Fair enough. At least I get my money back. I really do like quirky things to have fun with and learn. Anybody can get a beautiful PSA on the seet spot for a few more bucks. The hunt is the fun part for me.

Hanks autograph has deteriorated over the years and I agree who would only chare 24 bucks and go to all the trouble of personalizing.

Looks pretty typical of all the exampliers I looked up when he signs on side panel and adds "best Wishes"..Im going to lean toward real...

That's great, and you SHOULD have fun with the hobby...especially the hunt. With that said, just make sure you don't wake up in a few years (after you have more experience) and realize you have a bunch of questionable autographs. There is nothing worse than looking at your collection, and instead of enjoying it, having nagging doubts. Good luck.
