This Ebay listing of Als autographs caught my attention, not that I will be bidding on them.
But it's the illegible autograph hand writing that is a pet peeve of mine. Half can be made out because of the numbers, but still. Shouldn't an athlete, or anyone for that matter, take pride in their name, rather than just scribble it?
There's an older NY Times article on this.
In any case , when I become famous, I assure everyone my signature will be completely legible so all can know who I am!
