Welcome to the Astronaut Portrait Autograph Hall of Shame, a collection of some of the most 'atypical' space autographs known to man.
With the world's most famous astronaut refusing to sign autographs for some years now, and the resulting stratospheric climb in the prices fetched by his autographs in the secondary market, it is inevitable that forgers would move in to fill the gap and rake in the cash.
Judging whether a signature is genuine or forged is often more of an art than a science, as skillful forgeries can be extremely challenging to spot. This mini-site is dedicated, however, to those signatures that are so 'atypical' that the challenge is in trying to identify whose signature it is actually supposed to be. Often the only clue is the photograph used.
These examples of the signatures of Neil Armstrong (and the crew of Apollo 11) have all been offered for sale on eBay in recent months. I won't pass judgement on these particular signatures - maybe they're genuine, maybe they're not. Instead, I'll let YOU be the judge...
