Yes on the second one. Hard to tell on the first. Picture is too blurry

Thanks Matthew.

The best picture the guy could give me of the first is as follows below:

I would go yes on both. The first picture is not the greatest.

I now have both of these - so, here's some better scans:

Mantle 1 is a very nice Gallo print, it looks great other than the small chip on the upper left corner gloss.

For Mantle 2, "ickey" and "antle" appear to be exactly the same, letter-for-letter as Mantle 1. The "M" in the first and last name are different but the first "M" feels like a natural variance.

Mantle 2 looks good.

Mantle 1 looks better to me now, since you posted very clear images. The only thing still bothering me is how the first M is very condensed/smashed.

A forger wouldn't be able to keep the sig within the boundary of the uniform and still have that natural flow.

Both look good to me. #2 is a fairly uncommon pose signed. I wouldn't mind having that one at all.
