Posted By: <b>DD</b><p>Real signature, but I'd be hard pressed not to find about 5,000 other items with his signature that I would buy before this one.

Posted By: <b>Mark</b><p>Both look good to me...<br /><br />It would be stupid for a forger to attempt these, and both appear to be authentic regardless...

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>At the University of Wisconsin there was a Korean born, Princeton educated Chemistry professor named Hyuck Yu (Rhymes with F*** Y**). I was told that at the beginning of the first day of undergraduate class he would lead all the students in a loud chant of his name ("Hyuck Yu! Hyuck Yu! Hyuck Yu!"), over and over until they got the joke out of their systems.

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>As with folks like Nolan Ryan and Bob Feller, you have to give Mantle credit in that his signature always hand nice, consistent handwriting.
