Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. In most of the Elway auto's I looked at, the "y" at the end of "Elway" curls back up, whereas this one is straight down, so I'm not sure. Just wanted to get some other opinions. Thanks!

The J and Y don't look right. The O is usually in the center of the J loop and Y always curls.
Here's one from Mounted Memories, and PSA/DNA.

Not sure of the era of ball that yours is signed on, but that looks like an authentic early signature to me

Hi Mike,

Do you have an example of an early Elway auto?

The "y" in Elway bothers me. I would avoid it.
