Consistency Over the Years?

I have 31 different certified autographs of Darwin Barney (we can discuss how necessary that is another time!).  Consistency is the hallmark of a good ballplayer.  My question today - how consistent has Darwin been with his signature?

I put a tile together with all of the signatures.  There are three columns.  The first has his autograph on cards from 2007.  In the middle column are 2011 cards.  On the right are the 2012 and 2013 versions.

He seemed to be consistent within a particular year, but when you look at them from the first to the last, 

Darwin was getting a little lazy!


  1. That's a pretty darn impressive display! Sometimes I wonder if athletes get tired of signing their name over and over, and that's why early career examples are usually better than later.

  2. There's a joke in here about the evolution (Of signature) and Darwin, but I'm too lazy to come up with it.

  3. That's disappointing. I like Darwin Barney but it's not like he's Mike Trout.
