Received this (pre-signed?) photo back with my photo unsigned.

The writing looks a little wobbly and it was signed with this pen of a strange color and thickness. I think it was definitely signed (as opposed to autopen), but is it his signature?

I love that he wrote, "Forcefully yours"

Thanks in advance for comments

you can ask him on twitter if it is real.

I got the same one in the mail 2 days ago.
Sadly, if you look at it in the light you will see it's a print (photo) of an signed photo.
So, it's a nice pic, but not autographed by hand.

He must have to many requests and just hired someone to stuff that exact pic in everyones SESE.

I also got the same exact thing. It's just a photocopy of a signed photo. However, the original wasn't even signed by Mark; it's an incredibly bad forgery.

I got a different one a couple of days ago. There was a copyright mark on the photo, but it was a copyright just for the photo. The signature was done off of the photo. (Basically, it was on a long piece of photo paper with the photo taking up only part of the paper and signature under it.) The ink also bounces off the paper differently than the paper itself. It matches pictures of his autographs, but not too perfectly to mean it's an autopen.

So, that is super weird that I get an authentic (or very likely authentic) autograph and you get one that seems fake. That stinks! But, yes, for double measure, check with him on Twitter! I don't know if he tells if an autograph is authentic or not anymore, but, even if it's fake, it would be super cool to get a reply from him on Twitter!

How is it authentic? Mark Hamill debunked that address as not being associated with him on twitter.

The ones that the MHIFC send out are a bit random. This one, if it is real ink, could be authentic. The one I received is definitely not.

When I sent to Mark Hamill back in 2016, I sent to his home address in Los Angeles. About 3 months later, I got a pre-signed reply from the Mark Hamill Fan Club. It seems impossible to me that Mark and the fan club aren't linked in some form. (I have never sent anything to the fan club address)

I hope it is a real one. How can I know if the ink is real ?
(unfortunately I bent the photo while lining up my other autographs {down} ).
