Saw this on BO, and wanted to post more about it. There seems to be three variations to his autograph-
1- sticker autographs- loopy L and loopy K and defined U and A, that resembles LULU
2- on card autographs- narrow L and narrow K, scribbled U and scribbled A, that resembles LULU/LULU7
2- on card autographs- loopy L and loopy K and defined U and A, that resembles LULU

2016 Upper Deck autographs (sticker)
Autograph characteristics: Narrow L and narrow K. The gap between the vertical portions of L and vertical portions of K is very narrow. Overall signature resembles resembles lulu 7. No significant slant, mostly upright letters. Stickers likely signed sometime in 2016.


2017 Upper Deck autographs (sticker) (possibly excess from the previous 2016 batch of sticker autographs)


2018 Donruss Next Day Autograph (on card)
Autograph characteristics: Skinny L and skinny K. The gap between the vertical portions of L and vertical portions of K is very narrow. Overall signature resembles resembles lulu. Card likely signed in-person, August 12 2018, per NBA rookie photoshoot.

So are you thinking any of them are questionable or are you just noting the differences? Great info!

I have big concerns that the ones signed Lulu on stickers or on some cards were done by someone other than Luka.

The shortened or more rushed signature he signed on Draft night and then at the Photoshoot (there are images of him signing the Next Day auto) I think are more representative of his real signature.

Panini Rookie sticker autos are always suspicious, they always look like a full auto and fully legible and almost never look anything like the on card.

It can't be coincidental that so many rookies magically change their auto.

In my honest opinion, the LuLu ones are fake (done by either his mom or somebody else).
I wouldn't buy any LuLus. In fact, Impeccable just came out and they're "LuLus" as well.

The sloppy (LiLi) ones are his. You see it in all Fantatics, in person signings, Dallas Mavs promos.
You never see a LuLu in a confirmed signing unless it was done way back.

In my opinion, he tried to speed up his signature over the past year or so-- to the point where he'd rather spend his free time playing Fortnite than sign more crap for Panini (I don't blame him)-- then gotten to a point where he just handed it off to his mom/friend/who knows?

This is just my opinion, I'm no handwriting expert by any means, but, this at least deserves a discussion.

I'd love to see a video of Luka signing LuLus like in Prizm / Contenders.

It's common to see some really nice autos from rookies from their first releases (like Photoshoot cards) then watch the autos get sloppy because their hand got tired from signing hundreds if not thousands in a single setting (or over the season).
