Some players seem to have autos that are consistent year after year and no matter when you got their auto, it looks like their signature and it is just as dependable as time. Gordie Howe is a classic example of an autograph that is as dependable as time. Hossa is very much like my man Patrik Elias and it really depends what season you are talking about when it comes to what you might see when they sign. Here is a look at Marian Hossa's auto over time.
99-00 SP Authentic Sign of the Times Marian Hossa
I don't own this card, I just scammed a photo from online. This signature almost looks like it is his name.
05-06 BAP Dual Auto Hossa/Redden
Are there any players out there that you know have had a serious evolution in signatures? Was it for the better or worse? I think in Hossa's case it was for the better even if it isn't legible anymore.
