Can anyone with some knowledge on Alan Shepard's signature take a look at this photo please. I can't seem to find anything like it elsewhere - the autograph is quite bunched together but does appear to be his style of writing (perhaps a hastily signed book). Any advice would be most welcome.

It's his (very) rushed signature; I believe very likely authentic.

I've seen quite a few of these type Shepard signatures. He used this later style at book signings where he had a volume of them to complete in a short time.

It looks good to me.
