Default Darryl Strawberry signed baseball is it real or fake?

I've got another ball from a deceased family member's collection that I would appreciate some opinions on its authenticity. Tell me the good or bad news! Even if it's obvious. I'm new to this and need to confirm my suspicions on whether the balls in the collection are fake or worth getting appraised. If they are obvious fakes to the experienced eye then I will not invest any more time into them. Thanks!
This one I think is real, it has a COA from "Ralph Perullo" (I learned is bad), but also a PSA/DNA (good) sticker and small certificate with it

Here's an example of a real one from the same era:

1998 Donruss Signature Series - Autographs - Millennium Marks #_DAST - Darryl Strawberry /1000

PWCC: The Fish Stinks From the Head
PSA: Regularly Get Cheated
BGS: Can't detect trimming on modern
SGC: Closed auto authentication business
JSA: Approved same T206 Autos before SGC
Oh, what a difference a year makes.

I disagree with that 1998 certified autograph being from the "same era" as the OP's signed ball (which is authentic IMO). The ball was likely signed 10 years earlier than that card. Here is a Strawberry autograph I got in person in the early 90s handing it over the dugout in a bit of a rushed situation just before the game started.

Authentic. PSA/DNA is the best you can do.

Thanks everyone! Interesting how much a person's autograph can change over the years.
