Default Speaker signed postcard

Would like second opinions on this Speaker signed postcard. Its slabbed by PSA, but the S looks off to me and some of the letters e, a, look very small and there seem to be a lot of space between the strokes of the K in Speaker, the way the T joins the r in Tris. What so you guys think?

When it comes to slabbed autographs I heard a knowledgeable collector say, "always buy the autograph, not the slab." In the past I would have been happy if the item was in a slab, but now I try to be more discerning, because we know TPAs occasionally make mistakes and slab some items that may be questionable.

I think it is authentic, maybe a sloppy version.

I agree the S looks slow and too large. There are so many signed b&w Speakers out there, Id wait for a sharp, tight one.

Really dislike the S-P connection. Slowly drawn and sloppily executed. Speaker typically had a smooth/elegant/flowing sig that was not choppy like that example.

It may have been signed in a hurry or under some duress, and might be authentic. But as others have suggested, I would hold out for a better example, as there are plenty out there.
