Can you use the one that's on his 1954 card?

Here is one postmarked on a GPC during his first month in the ML , Aaron himself said he never signed it . But matches known examplars from the period

I would be inclined to believe Aaron on that pc.

I believe Mr. Aaron's memory served him correctly. In my opinion, that is not Hammering Hank's autograph on that GPC.

Ok , compare that to this PRE ML letter that sold for close to 30K, paying special attention to the word "Sincerely" , as well as other unique traits in the handwritting on the letter including the H in Henry compared to the GPC. And then see what you think.

Richard,

these two are from 1952, both reside in the Hall of Fame, First is Hank's 1952 eau claire contract, and the second is a 1952 eau claire signed team ball...

Hope this helps...

I believe the letter and the GPC were written by the same person.
But I don't believe that person was the one who signed the contract and the baseball.
