I am currently in the process of moving and came across a box filled with what I call "Trash autographs". When I went through it, I found the following Gagarin signature on a card:

At the time, I wasn't sure if its real or a fake, that's why it ended up in my "Trash autograph Box".

If you have knowledge about Gagarin autographs, then I would love to hear your opinion regarding this specific piece. In my opinion, it just looks to new and to "clean" to be the real deal...

Thank you so much, much appreciated.

Roger, regrettably, in my opinion, you had it filed correctly.

Who has a genuine Yuri Gagarin autograph, and who is qualified to judge its authenticity?

Gherman Titov was kind enough to give me my first Yuri Gagarin autograph. I also have the Gagarin signed cover from the Kniga set. I am assuming both of those are genuine. They are on my flickr site if you would like to see them. Contact me and I will send you the link if you are interested.
