Please tell me if the autograph below appears authentic. It was part of a lot of cut signatures that included Vance Brand and Story Musgrave sold on eBay - the whole lot only cost $15.76 so I will not be too disappointed if the consensus is that it autopen or a forgery.

I was considering framing this with an SpaceFlori Apollo 16 moon dust presentation so I do not want to invest the time or money doing so unless it is definitely a genuine signature.

Thank you for your help!

Thanks to all for your comments. There seems to be no doubt it is an autopen!
