LilBro just got back from a conference in Orlando and, of course, brought the fam to spend some Disney time. One of the regular events at the park is getting autographs from the characters. Are these real autographs? Apparently, it does not matter who is in the suit, they are trained to sign in a uniform way, so that Mickey's autograph will look identical on any given day. Does this matter?

Shoeless Joe Jackson was illiterate and would have his wife sign autographs for him. Were these autographs? Joe Jackson autographs?

What is the difference between an autograph and a signature?
