Signed copies that aren't

I like The West Wing and back when I acknowledged birthdays and the like two of my friends, separately, got signed photos of Martin Sheen looking presidential [complete with certificates of authenticity]. The photos are different but the signatures are exactly the same and in the same position on the photos. I can only assume that Martin Sheen is either astoundingly precise and repetitive in his hand writing... Or someone someone used an autopen to duplicate it. There is even a hint of a pen track on the photos as if a real pen was used.

Apart from in exceptional circumstances*, I wouldn't be too bothered about a signed copy of anything, unless the person had done it specifically for me.

*It would be very cool to have a copy of LOTR or the Hobbit signed by the author.

I cannot confirm or deny that I'm a punning cunning combination of up-market and cheap myself (and thus might have purchased a car to match)....


No. (Fiberglass Cyborg has correctly identified the marque.)
Just reallised I've done something which infuriates me when others do it: completely blanked on the word "not". This makes so much more sense now!

It happens on "collectables" too - scale figure of Buzz Aldrin in space-suit "signed" (printed on box cover)
