Is this Ford authentic???

Bought this a while ago, but I've been recently reading about GA and how they authenticated a load of fakes, especially sports autographs.

Obviously I thought it looked legit, otherwise I would not have bought it, just wondered what some of you guys think....

Thanks for your input

Looks good to me. Do a google search and look at Topps cards he has signed. Matches my two genuine Fords.

Cheers, yeah I'd spent ages looking at genuine Ford's on Topps and Official Pix ect and thought this one looked genuine, but read so much negativity around Global Authentics, I was starting to worry a bit.

Thanks for you input pal :D

It's the real deal you have there. One of his better in the street signatures. Nice placement too. Couldn't have been that many wanting an autograph at the time. Seen some right messy autographs from him when there's a crowd.

Quality :D looks like my gamble paid off. I had been looking for a nice example for a while, and as you say, some of his signatures can look rushed and sloppy.

Thanks for you input pal.

Im not liking that at all. Ive studied Fords sig quite a bit and something doesnt sit right with me.I even asked a friend who knows his autographs more than me and he said it looks too similar to some forgeries we have seen in recent times.

Thats the problem with autos, unless you saw it signed in front of your own eyes or from a very reputable seller there is never a definative answer.

Totally get what you are saying Lee, I don't consider myself to be an expert, hence why I asked. I thought it looked genuine compared to other genuine Ford's, I just didn't want to fork out £500+ for an official pix example.
Thanks for your comments pal

It was an eBay purchase, from some seller in Australia if I remember correctly, got it last year.
