I have had this card for quite some time now and was going to sell it to pay for some Jame Bond cards. I did some investigating on Feebay and could not find a one with Silver ink. After reading the black ink was a dealer incentive card. Is the silver ink variation from somewhere else?? thanks in advance

The one that I have is in black ink. I can't recall seeing one signed in silver ink, but I'm not saying it's not possible, just that I don't know for sure.

In general silver ink can be a problem and collectors should be aware of that. Although some collectors like to use silver because they think it stands out more on dark photos, silver and gold paint pens can be used by forgers to better cover over signature trace strokes.

Silver signatures are often widely seen in pre-printed autographs and auto stamps. Pre-printed signatures are actually in the photo itself and there is no surface paint. To check that out, put the photo or card under a really bright light. As the shining light makes parts of the photo disappear, the real ink signature should still stand out. If the signature also disappears with the photo under the light, you know that it really is just a copied autograph rather than signed.

Auto pens or stamps appear to be signed, but they are always the same signature. One is hard to pick out, but comparing them to each other is easy since no hand signed signature is a perfect match.

Again, someone else may be able to confirm whether or not there were silver variant signatures on this card.

I'd be very interested to see this silver variant. I have only ever seen her cards signed in black ink.

eshegg, I would never leave cards in a screw down for a long period of time. I don't know if that contributed to the degrading of the signature, but I don't like them because of the pressure on the card. Better to secure in PVC free pocket pages or top loaders.

Can't say how any average buyer would feel about that card, maybe the silver tint looks nice, but an experienced autograph collector will want to either discount for the fading or will look elsewhere.
