Today, your eyes will gaze upon the autograph of Rodney Hood who is a shooting guard for the Utah Jazz in the NBA.

Every year I buy a few packs of basketball cards just for giggles and when you pull an autograph from that pack it does make you feel like you just won the lotto.......in a small kind of fun way. I pulled this card from a feeder box at target and was literally surprised because the pack didn't seem very thick or heavy. This is a Rodney Hood 2014-15 Panini Excalibur Basketball Rookie Rampage patch auto card serially numbered 21/25.

The first thing that I noticed in Rodney's signature is that he signed his first name with a "Lasso"effect. It's in my opinion that you can make out an "R" if you already knew his name was Rodney. However, when I showed the card to a few friends and asked them for their thoughts on the autograph, their first thought was that it's an "A" more than an "R" that he signed. 

With his last name (Hood), it looks like it's spelled, "Nid" or "Mid". If you look really hard at the card you will see these letters: A N D. So I guess his signature name is "and" perhaps?

Either way Rodney's signature is better than most of the NBA player signatures in the last 5 years and while it may be barely legible the tribe has decided to give him 2 sharpies for his efforts.
