    Todays Players Autographs

    I am going to put my cranky old man hat on, but is it just me or do todays players not take time to write a legible autograph? Players from back in the day for example the entire BRM wrote so you could legibly read their name. Now for example both Phillips and Votto write so I that I couldn't begin to know who signed it. I know this isn't exclusively baseball players because I also have gotten Colts players autographs that I could not read. But from a casual autograph collector, it kind of takes the fun out of collecting if you cannot read their name or all the do is basically write their initials.

    Oh and get off my lawn!!!

    They are paid better than doctors.

    So that means they can sign their names even more poor.

    I agree, and that's if you're lucky enough to even get them to sign anything.
