Do I have an autographed cartridge?

I bought a bundle of games because there was a cartridge without a label and I thought it might be a rare title.

The shipment came today and the mystery game is casino, though it has a signature on the back and I'm wondering if it's an autograph.

It's peculiar because this cartridge has the later kind of dust cover, without the swinging flap on the inside. All the other games had text labels.

Does anyone recognize this signature?

Given the number of cartridges I've seen with names written on the back, it's more likely that some kid or parent wrote their name on the cart to identify its owner. This was pretty common "back in the day", especially with kids bringing carts over to others' houses, lending of games, etc.

Yep, pretty much all the carts i see with names are past owners, but hey you never know. They have game conventions though and most Atari programmers will sign your box or game for free. So they don't really have any extra value except to you, as most collectors consider signatures a bad thing on boxes, games etc.
