Default Is this live ink?

I have a friend that wrote to Johnny Keane in 1964 in care of the Cardinals. He sent him a 1963 Topps card to sign. He is thinking it could be a stamp. I asked for close ups to see if there is overlap and pressure points. I am not an expert, so I thought I could learn from the experts on this board. I have attached three photos of the signature from tight to wide. Please let me know

1. Is this live ink?
2. If live ink, is the signature authentic?

Many thanks in advance.Screenshot_20220801-135400_Messages.jpg

It appears to be handwritten and not a stamp

Thanks for your comments. For those who believe it is a stamp, please give me the clues so I can learn from this exercise.

Robert...

The 1963 and 1964 Topps Johnny Keane are both rubber stamp signatures. 100%

Thanks, Lamar. The 1963 was the one I was considering, but the guy who owns it and I suspected it migh tbe stamped. Any tips that made the assessment so definitive are appreciated.

Thanks again to all those who commented.

Thanks for pointing that out. That is irrefutable evidence for sure. Thanks again.

I was hoping someone could point out evidence in the close ups so I could become more educated In case i need to assess without having another stamped autograph to compare agsinst.

Look at the uniformity of the pen strokes. A live auto will have slight irregularities, even with a non-fountain pen. A stamp will often be the same width and pressure all around.
