Default Leaf Carrie Fisher Autos from Pop Century

Looking at some of these Carrie Fisher autos from 2017 Pop Century on Ebay, some of her sigs don't look right. Carrie has a pretty consistent signature, even on stickers.
One sig that looks especially odd.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAR-WARS-CARRIE-FISHER-2017-LEAF-POP-CENTURY-AUTO-AUTOGRAPH-CARD-SP-7-7-SSP-/182696762762?hash=item2a89935d8a:g:4L8AAOSw8X5ZgF4-

Anyone have any comments?

Whoops. Put this in the wrong forum. Can someone move it to Non-Sports Talk?

That one definitely looks suspect.

Odds Brian is trying to get away with one? Maybe he got 6/7 back?

Looking at the sellers other auctions for pop century there were a few others that looked similar in the sloppiness. Definitely weird

He's gotten away with more than that. Leaf has disgraced Hockey and even though I love the fact Upper douche won't have the 1 and 2 picks autos for this year's products. I love the bastard for screwing UD. Now if these are fakes tell them for f's sake instead of whining. More people hate on certain individuals instead of the company's . we won't know unless he is spoken to. I hate Brian grey as a human being but when UD loses I am happy

I love Carrie Fisher. Always have, always will. That autograph looks consistent but influenced. Meaning, she was not one to shy away from admitting that she was doing things she shouldn't, so the sloppiness of the signature seems to come from her being inebriated to some degree. I'm betting that this is her signature and that she was high or drunk while doing it.

According to a Facebook group, this card image was sent to Steve Grad of Beckett, and he verified that it's real and that she was under the influence when she signed it.

While the signature shares many similarities with Fisher's normal autograph, and it's possible she signed it while under the influence of something, I personally would not want to own it. In the back of my mind I would always be worried it wasn't really signed by her.

I was going to suggest that perhaps she sneezed while signing it.....
