Did someone just pay a ridiculous amount for a Stuart Roosa autopen litho or was this litho actually signed by Roosa?

It's definitely not autopen - it isn't very close to any of the known patterns, and one can see in several places how the pen was picked up and put down like a human does it as opposed to a machine.

The signature looks good to me.

Uninscribed signed lithos by Roosa are very uncommon, at least in my experience. Most all the ones I've seen are personalized.

Having said that, the price paid is still pretty high.

All times are CT (US)
