This is great news and any info on future releases from futera would be very welcome
To add to the debate about the sigs
I too have been very sceptical about the originality of the auto cards
but on the flipside if the topps and upper deck are done at sit down sessions whereas the futera I believe are not then the sigs are going to differ
but the pictures that you have shown are extremely different and confirmation would be good

It's good to hear about the possible link with Futera. If something similar could be done with Upper Deck or Panini and the ties with Topps strengthened, that can only be fantastic for the forum.

Regarding the autographs, it's a difficult one. There will always be small differences but those ones do seem to be wildly different. I can't believe that Futera would be able to sell such blatant fakes for so long without anyone in a position to do something about it noticing. Futera have a good reputation and I just can't picture it. However, it would be nice if they could explain the process because clearly those pictures raise some eyebrows.

All in all, great company with some great cards and really hope that a link can be established. For football stickers Panini are the kings, but for football cards you don't really get better than Futera!

Google 'Tim Howard Autograph' and look at the images.

most are more like the Futera ones than the other 2.

To be honest non look the same at all!! So either they are nearly all fakes or he's a bit slap dashed with his Autographs!!

This is great news!

Re: the autos. I've met Howard and got his autograph on a card and it looks a cross between the topps and futera ones so.. Your signature can change depending on how fast you write it, how much you're concentrating and the surface you sign.
Please view the thread of the Euro 2016 & Copa America Stickers I need and also my Euro 2016 & Copa America Sticker trades and PM me if you would like to trade!!!

great to hear from someone who knows they have a genuine signature.

While we can never be 100% sure it does show that they are more than likely to be Genuine and Tim Howard indeed does not have a single style of autograph!

Actually all peoples autos can look strange.. :wink Just look at mine:

Mikaela(who wrote that)

But anyway, Futera cant release pictures of players signing becuase Futera havent seen it!

Futera buys Autos and Jerseys from a 3th Company.

1st(Player):Signs auto to 3th(company)
3th(Company):Receives auto from player,sells it to Futera.
2nd(Futera):Receives from 3th(company),then makes cards and sells them.

I'm still convinced the Futera Howard's are fake.

I'll ask around fro some more opinions though.

A few pictures of cards being signed on their website would help I suppose.

Hopefully we can get an exclusive card only available to FCF members for free.

Now that would be EPIC!!
