Saw this one and was interested in hearing your thoughts regarding authenticity or lack thereof. I've intentionally left off any certification or lack thereof information in order not to bias anyone. Pics aren't the greatest, but it's all I've got. Did Ali ever sign baseballs this shakily but yet with full name signature? Is it an authentic Muhammad Ali autograph?

Here's a couple more pics. The Michael Jordan is Upper Deck Authenticated and was signed in August of 2005 at his basketball camp in Santa Barbara. The Ali purports to be be from before October 2004 as that is when the Cert for the Ali is dated. The baseball is a Gulf Coast League ball.

Any opinions on the Ali?? My personal belief is that someone wasted a great oppportunity to get Jordan by having him sign a bogus Ali ball but wanted to see what others thought.
