Default Julio Urias's Autograph

Just wondering why he signs almost everything (even cards) off centered. could there be a specific reason? I know Xander Bogaerts used to sign everything in the worst spot possible when signing autographs in person. I think he did it for resale purposes and didn't want people reselling (which I kind of understand) just wanted some input. Thanks guys!

I hope you know majority of the players do not card about the sports cards industry. They will just sign whatever is given to them to sign.

many lefty autos are weird because they have to hold their hand in an odd position or their hands smears whatever they are writing as they write it.

I've heard Kris Bryant does that. Or just personalizes everything.

I get that but I haven't seen any of these centered. I just thought it was odd.

This looks pretty centered



I see your point though they are mostly to the right of being centered.

left handed - always a different angle and hand placement to sign ANYTHING - next time you are at the gas station and a southpaw happens to sign their CC receipt in front of you, they will likely turn it completely sideways or almost upside down.

My Dad is left handed and he does this as well

I think this something to do with it as well as being a lefty. I got a few OmLB's signed this spring and theyre Not centered and lean towards the right drastically

I am left handed and must say that yes we do have to turn things differently.

You have those credit card machines that have the cord attached to the pen on the right side and I have to pull it all the way across the machine just to sign it.

Right handed people do not know how much this world is catered to them.

Not lame dude, just a theory. You know his eyesight is affected right?

Yeah I've seen him sign sweet spot where it's at an angle. I'm guessing its because his signature is long from top to bottom that he signs that way so it fits.

Don't see how that's lame.

I would think Logan Morrison would as well. Think he worked at a sports/hobby shop while in the minors or college or something.
