Best and Worst, Autographs
I really like autographs, but i've been noticing some really ugly n lazy, ones..
Like Oscar Taveras maybe has the worst, auto i've seen in awhile
But i really like Jackie Bradley's, Auto his is nice..

I've always thought John Drennen's horrible signature resembled a very poorly drawn elephant:
Anyone else see it? haha

Michael Cuddyer's autograph is easily one of the best. Look up the story about how Harmon Killebrew taught him to sign the "right way"- Great story
EDIT- Found the story, including a couple of links to get you a good idea of the story:

I've always been a fan of Jeter and Griffey's signatures. But I don't own either. Here are the worst ones I own:
And this one simply because I don't see how it reads "Henry Rodriguez" haha:

Ryne Sandberg's is terrible IMO, & as far as laziness, I think I'd go with Billy Hamilton.

Was just going thru my autograph cards,jim palmer and tom seaver have nice signature's.Out of the new guy's tyler Anderson takes writing small to the 10th degree brother can you spare some ink,I swear a pen must last him a lifetime.Do something nice for someone everyday, it will pay off in the long run.

Completely agree. When I was looking to buy my Taveras, I of course made sure that the auto was clean. Not only is his signature a mess, but it's usually a poorly inked mess.
Another prospect, Wil Myers:
I know he gets asked for his signature a lot, but Jesus man, put some effort into it.
Another almost as bad as Taveras:
Oh yeah, I totally get "Jurickson Profar" from that.
As far as pretty good signatures? Shelby Miller actually signs his name legibly.
Now if I could only find a 9.5 BGS graded copy of this card.
My favorite all-time sigs have to include Ken Griffey Jr.
I also like Robin Younts:
Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.
Currently working on the T206 set, 1975 Topps, master collections of Roberto Clemente and Robin Yount.

I've always been a big fan of Sandy Alomar's signature:
Manny's was nice when he tried.....
And I really hate Michael Brantley's sig.....though he's one of my favorite players:
