Default Lou Gehrig signed baseball is it real or fake?

Hello again, 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!

Looks like one of those reproduction balls these guys are putting out now and that's the problem they seem to be faking a lot of people believing they are real

I'm not an autograph expert. But I've collected 30 years. If I saw this baseball in a memorabilia shop, I would be hesitant about buying due to how strong the signature is. The rest of the ball appears aged, but the signature appears brand new. Usually on autographs this old, the ink ages as well. It fades, or discolors. This ball has not done that.
