Steve Yzerman - Legit?
March 15, 2014 7:13AM
I have seen many Yzerman autos, but am far from an expert. The form looks good, but I don't think I could tell a real signature from an autopen, stamp, or any other type of fake. What do you think about its legitimacy and why?

That is not hand signed from these scans.
Ink deposit, spotty and yet even at stroke starts and also even fadeouts, indicates stamp or other - no crossovers of strokes I can see.
The last turn to the right in the first "S" - where direction changes and there appear two strokes - indicates a contrived signature.
The dots at the trail-off of the first name...
The way strokes return from breaks is suspect.
It is perhaps doubtful the "19" would be placed there by choice.

Unfortunately, it does look like a stamp to me.
I bought it from this seller a few months ago. Looks like he has another card with an identical stamp for sale here:

100% stamp, of course.
The link you have shows the same source stamp.
Seller claims this is an autograph...change sellers.
