Default Name this Autograph

This autograph is being offered by a legitimate dealer for $70, and I am sure it is legit. But can anyone identify it?
Shame the players don't take any pride in their signature.

Nick Swisher. I had him sign a couple baseballs for me and was shocked when that's what I got. At least he is consistent.

That is correct,, apparently his elementary school teachers did not care to teach him how to write his name.

It's not just Nick Swisher...I collect minor league team signed balls going back 70+ years. I can read nearly all of the names on the vintage balls...on newer balls it's almost impossible to read a single name...and these guys are minor leaguers!!! You'd think they'd at least want to be remembered. I also have a few U of Nebraska signed balls...one from 1979 in which I can read 90% of the names, and one from 2004 where I can read about 10% of the names. These guys must start practicing their lazy signatures in high school.

Thats the very reason I gave up collecting sigs of modern day players.

Remember Bobby Bonillias and barry bonds sigs circa 1991?


pitiful.

$70 for a Nick Swisher ball. What a bargain.
