Default NYAL 1915 Contract

I won a NYAL contract from 1915 in a Clean Sweep auction. In addition to the player signature, Cottrell, it is signed by Ruppert and on the front by Ban Johnson. Are the Ruppert and Johnson signatures likely personal or more likely secretarial? Any general rule on this with these early contracts?

Johnson is likely original, Barrow would often signed for Ruppert and their signatures look nothing alike. Barrow's "Rupport" signature was big and loopy while Ruppert was compact and slanted to the right.

Default Ruppert

Thanks - looks likely Ruppert is Ruppert and not Barrow from your note
