I don't know if anyone has any comments on these signatures. Book sold for $1673 in May 2012 auction.

A friend reminded me that we had looked at these back in 1997. PSA/DNA and Jim Spence. As always, I can't even recognize my own signature, but I am interested in hearing what others think.

Max, I would guess both are legit.

The second one looks fine, and the inscription above the first one looks typical of his messy writing at that time. His signature could vary a lot, and it looks like a labored effort to be neat, which makes sense when signing a book.
