Chicken Scratch Does Not Equal An Autograph

Occasionally you come across a personality that has no interest in acknowledging their fans whatever the reason may be. They don’t want to talk or have a photo taken with anyone, which I can understand in certain situations, but then there are cases where they are contracted to meet fans or sign autographs and they still show their disdain for the public.

Chris Johnson is a perfect example with his barely legible “CJ” autographs that appeared on cards. Every year it seems like someone new is added to the list of “troublesome” signers and I think I found a perfect example.

Shia LaBeouf is that man. Over the years LaBeouf has bounced around from good guy to pain in the ass. He started with Disney but really blew up with Transformers in 2007 and then again in the following sequels but then came his “I am not famous anymore” and his antics were irritating people, though personally I think he was excellent in Fury.

As I was going through my eBay feed I saw what appeared to be an “*” on a baseball and my first thought was that it was someone playing on the 2007 Upper Deck Sweet Spot asterisk autograph card (Which is currently up for auction), but I was wrong. It is actually the scribbling of LaBeouf. After spending some time looking through other LaBeouf autographs as well as autograph websites it does appear that this is in fact his chicken scratch

  1. He sure has changed since he was in Holes. Gotta admit... his autograph might look like chicken scratch, but it's more artistic than a few other athletes I've seen.
