Always in Demand: Gretzky, Woods, McIlroy Talk Autographs

One of the benefits of signing a player to an exclusive autograph contract is that you occasionally have their undivided, personal attention.   Upper Deck recently hosted three of its big guns for signing sessions and in between time, they set up a camera and talked about autographs with Gretzky signing jerseyWayne Gretzky, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

It’s promotional in nature but the three did talk about authenticity, forgeries and their own signature style so the videos are short enough to merit a look.

Gretzky talks about the person who always insisted on a neatly formed autograph, Woods discusses fakes and McIlroy admits his signature at the golf course is nothing like what fans get if they get one from a sit down signing session.
