One could comment on the (poor) signature styles but rather an easier observation: the photo is 11x14 and the autographs have been drawn to scale with (in fact, actually larger than) how the astronauts signed 8x10s. People don't generally scale up their signature, regardless the size of the piece being signed.

As I suspected.

Didn't want to poison the well in advance but thought in case others were thinking of bidding (I wasn't) a heads up was in order.

Thanks.
