Default Joe Dimaggio Autograph help

Does anyone think this autograph would pass or if I should spend the money to get a quick opinion?

Any help would be appreciated!


Thanks!

I do not think it would pass, and certainly would not feed them more money for their opinion (which is no better than the people right here).

My vote is no good, and the thick silver sharpie does not help its cause. Letís see what others say before you even consider submitting it.

Ok thanks, yea I am very skeptical on the sharpie myself, but I was thinking he maybe signed it later on. I’ve seen some pretty horrific autographs before that pass somehow

Yeah, Iíve seen it a number of times as well. I just wouldnít fork out the money on such a low probability.

I don't know if the auto is good or not, but the fact that a silver sharpie was used doesn't mean a thing. You sure wouldn't want it signed with a black or blue sharpie as it would not show up very well. Just my opinion.

In 1962 he signed my first baseman's mitt in ball point pen. I continued to use the mitt for several years and the autograph disappeared.
This isn't relevant to the op, sorry.

It's hideous and I do not believe it to be authentic either. Couldn't give it to me.

If it's actually signed with a silver sharpie, then there is an issue. According to the Sharpie history, "In 2004, Sharpies were introduced in metallic silver, gold, and copper." That means 5 years after Joe D passed away.

The Sharpie issue is true but there were silver and gold "paint" pens that were used before then . I know this for a fact because I have a Joe D 11 x 14 B&W photo ( in fact it is a Joe Licata photo , but that is another story for another post ) I got signed by Joe in person at one of the National Pastime's Hofstra shows in the early 1990s. They worked great but took forever to dry , but as of this day it is still in perfect condition in my protective folder.
I also had Mickey Mantle silver paint pen photos that were done at private signings we had with Mickey at his lake house in the early 1990s and they always were popular and sold out quickly.
That being said the Joe D glove autograph in the OP is not good.
