Best Answer

A facsimile signature is a pre printed signature usually used on Souvenir baseballs, promotional photos, Postcards, Bats, Gloves, advertisings etc. A preprint, or facsimile is simply a photographic copy of an original signed photograph. A preprint signature often appears to be below the surface gloss of the photo, and the signature is often very "flat." Hold the photo up at an angle to a light source. A real signature is written on the surface of the photo, and should have a different level of reflectivity than the rest of the surface. A preprint will blend right in with the surface because it's underneath the surface gloss.
