Default Help on Hank Aaron authentication

The attached scan shows three 1974 Topps autographed Aaron cards. They were a part of a large estate with other signed cards that appear to be authentic. I need some help/opinions about the authenticity of these Aaron autographs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Robert

PS, the suggestion to save the attachment as a .jpg file I think worked. Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your feedback. I agree. The pen signatures look like the autographs I had received from him in person in the early-mid 1970s. I don't know what to think of the other autograph.

Any other thoughts are appreciated.

“Star” refers to Hank’s penmanship/signature style at the time. His “Hank”’looks
like “Star”. At one point his signature style was different and his “Hank” looks like “Hoar”. Both valid styles of his.

Thanks Chris! And let's not forget his good friend "Fleece Mop" Willie Mays

So I don't like sharpie from what I can see and I'm not a big fan of the 3rd example in pen, though it may be good? The 2nd penned is the most likely authentic but I'd have to do a little more work to see if that's where he normally signs those cards to feel more comfortable. Those are my thoughts in any case. If I was collecting those signed cards, I think I'd want a little more, IMHO.

I'd say yes to the two in ballpoint...the sharpie is definitely iffy.
