Packer Favorite Barty Smith Autograph

For a long time in my collecting career I looked at "Through-The-Mail"/"In Person" autographs with disdain and instead favored "Certified" autographs put out by the major card companies. But as I've matured as a collector I've come to appreciate that some of the players that intrigue me most are never going to have a "Certified" autograph from Topps or Panini. Barty Smith is such a player. He was was the leader of the Packers running attack on those mid-to-late 70's teams when the Pack struggled to get to .500.

That blue signature is almost neon blue.
