Default Max Kepler Chrome Autos...Did he really sign them?

Check out the Max Kepler Chrome autos in this eBay listing. Anyone else think he had help signing his cards?

You sign 3000 cards and show us if they all look very similar. I am sure he signed ll of them. These don't look all that different to me, or am I missing something?

Some people just sign their name like that. My wife makes fun of me all the time. My signature is almost never the same. Even from page to page on my loan for my house.They are all different. Ive written 3 different large checks that the bank actually called me to make sure they were legit.

If you take a person and have him sign his name 100 times lets say, no 2 will be exactly alike. However, there are certain things like direction of slant, location of pressure points, and overall pen speed ect that will NEVER change. These things will be consistant on all 100 sigs. Having said that, the second to last one looks a bit odd. Upon further examination and comparing it to other exemplars of his auto, I think perhaps the card was at an angle when he signed. Just my opinion thanks...

Confused...they don't look any different than any other ones I'ev seen. Don't get me started on Oscar Tavares...it's obvious there are alot of fakes out there now.

thats happened a handful of times in basketball, where someone else obviously signed some cards (rookie year randy foye is the funniest one off the top of my head), no reason to think it'd never happen in baseball

He asked Dez Bryant and Von Miller for suggestions on signing his cards.

I'm not saying all of them are fake, but I just noticed inconsistencies when looking at all 8 of them together (prob fatigue). There is one that really stands out from the rest, but someone suggested he may have signed while the card was slanted. I just know that if someone sent that auto in to PSA, it may have a hard time passing if it wasn't on a Bowman Chrome certified auto card.

He was also 16 or 17 when he signed them. Teenagers aren't known for their quality penmanship

I received an email from someone claiming to be Max Kepler's mom (and received reasonable evidence to support the claim) and just wanted to post it here:

Dear Blowout Cards Forum,
My name is Kathy and I am Max Kepler's mom.
I wanted to let all know that Max DID sign every single baseball card and
would never even think to let someone else do this for him.Why would he ?!!
It does strike me strange that there are people that think Max would have
someone else sign his baseball cards for him !!! Max adores all of his
baseball fans and has no reason to not sign his baseball cards.He loves
doing this !!!
I hope I have put any doubts to rest ..
Best wishes to all,
Kathy Kepler

Diese e-mail war nicht auf Deutsch! Just kidding. I know she's in Texas. It's pretty cool that she wrote a BO admin and put my suspicion to rest.
