A word to the wise on anyone seeking Craig Janney signatures through the mail: avoid any Connecticut address you might find. Yes, he is a Hartford native. But he has lived in Phoenix ever since he played for the Coyotes in the late 1990s. Through a little bit of research (and a lot of help from the message boards at sportscollectors.net), one can ascertain that the Arizona signature, with the giant looping "C", is the real deal. All "successes" coming from the Connecticut address are likely ghost-signed by a mother or other family member. The signatures look nothing alike.
