2000 Skybox Autographics Todd Helton Autograph
Last week I landed one Todd Helton autograph that I was very happy to add to my collection and quickly landed a second two days later. The Skybox card is a nice on-card autograph, but the Skybox logo in the background of the card is raised and caused a slight inconsistency in the signature on the left-hand side of the signature. Compare with the autograph below.
2001 Topps Fusion Todd Helton Autograph
This 2001 Topps Fusion Todd Helton autographed card is also an on-card autograph too, but there are two differences in the signatures. First, the Topps Fusion card offers a flat clear surface for the signer which allowed Helton to sign a cleaner autograph. If you look at the ink in the autograph it is consistent throughout. Second, Helton signed a longer version of his autograph on the Topps Fusion card. Like many players whom are asked to sign their name often, Todd Helton's signature has changed over time.
