I have a friend who has three items signed by Scott Carpenter. He asked me if this were real or autopen. I must say, I never saw a Carpenter autopen, so I have no idea.

And what about the other signatures on the cover where all seven signed? Do not find an autopen match. Maybe some of the collectSPACE members can confirm what is real and autopen:

I believe all three covers are "pre-prints," meaning the "signatures" were printed on the covers when they were made, as part of the design.

Those are all definitely pre-prints.
