Wonder if anyone can assist with a query about this programme. Just wondering about the Bobby Moore signature which is not like his usual ones. There are a number of genuine looking signatures on the programme, but if the Moore one was faked (for a 19 year old with no international history at the time) it seems odd. The question is, has his signature changed since he was a youth or is this simply a fake?
Of local interest to me, is that Hugh Lindsay of Kingstonians went on this tour, he is the 2nd XI umpire at my cricket club and still fit as a fiddle.

It's not even close to Bobby Moores signature.

I know its not like his normal signature, just asking if his signature changed a bit since he was a youth. Wondering if anyone had an autograph when he was a junior. I have my doubts. Just odd that in 1961 that there were pucker signatures and his was forged.

If it is a 'recent' forgery it is likely the intent was to add value to the item.

Looks like it was done in the same pen as the others, so doesn't look recent. It does look dodgy though as I cannot find anything similar of his.
Anyway, thanks all for your responses.

Had this from Steve

I think that signature is fake, in his early days it was like the version that someone has posted in 1962, he sometimes signed B. Moore, again looking like the 1962 one.
