Is this an authentic autograph?

Hello all , i came across this Peter Laird autograph im just wondering if its real.
Im pretty sceptical when it comes to autographs and mint in box figures got ripped off on some things. Can maybe someone who knows more say something about this?

If this is wrong to post here or not allowed to ask im sorry i didnt find something in the rules.

Both the signature and the turtle head look like genuine Peter Laird work to my eye. The only question would be if it is handwritten written or just printed onto something, but I've never known anybody to fake a Laird autograph, as they aren't rare at all. Where did you get the post card?

Got it from a german ebay seller. Just went for it wasnt too expensive so it wouldnt bug me if its fake. It doesnt look printed so its mostly real then.
Its still a nice piece for my collection if its real rare or not

Yeah, I'd say it's legit. Pete has done a few con appearances in recent years & also signs things through the mail on occasion, so there's little incentive to fake one in the first place.

Looks legit. Here's a guaranteed authentic one I have from last year for comparison:
