I dabble in signed cover collecting, but have lots to learn. I would appreciate any feedback on these covers.

The Jimmy Carter and Frank Borman came from the same vendor.

Inside the Charlie Duke cover is a very interesting letter dated 1979 inviting officers to a dinner to meet Duke. It was suspiciously inexpensive when I acquired i at auction, but represented as handsigned.

Do these look authentic?

The Borman and Duke look fine to me (I don't know Carter's autograph and have no opinion on it).

Thanks guys! Not sure what I was thinking asking for insight on a Presidential signature from the cS crowd. Indicative of my trust and confidence in the community!

Appreciate the feedback on the astronauts.

While not being an expert on presidential signatures, I have half a dozen books signed by Carter and it seems consistent with his signature in the books though only one has his full signature Jimmy Carter, the others are J carter.

The other covers look good to me.

I suspect the Carter may be an Autopen, but the image is really too small to be certain.
