    Not saying either of these are real, but the top one resembles Roberto Clemente and the bottom right looks like it might say Cal Ripken Jr. Neither of them look right to my untrained eye so I might be wrong, but the similarities are enough to mention the names as possibilities (and you’re obviously not getting Clemente in 2001…). You can google their autos and check them out to see what you think. No clue on the others.

    The top one is supposed to be Clemente. but IMO it's secretarial and not signed by Clemente himself.

    I agree. It's extremely elaborate for even the earlier days of his career when his signature was not as truncated as those typically seen. It looks like a lengthy variation of an early signature and not by his hand.

    Yeah, I guess that’s my underlying point… if these were all TTM in 2001 and one looks a hell of a lot like Clemente - which is impossible… then they’re questionable. I know that bottom right auto isn’t what we’re used to see for Cal, but it sure looks like it could be someone writing “Cal Ripken Jr”.

    The 2nd one down on the left looks like “Tyler Hamilton” - maybe the cyclist? The rest are illegible.
