Posted By: <b>Tony Andrea</b><p>Does anyone know anything about these:<br />4" x 5" b&w glossy pic's of the 78-79 NY Yankee's. They all have what look to be a<br />blue sharpie signature. I've had these for about a year and when I purchased them<br />was told no guarantee on the signatures. I sent the Munson into Jimmy Spence for authentication<br />and was told it was a stamped signature. I'm no professional but boy, under magnification<br />I even see light smudges from the pen on some and many are streaky like a sharpie will do at times.<br />Any input would be appreciated.<br /><img src="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a95/andreatny/bw3.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a95/andreatny/bw2.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a95/andreatny/bw1.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a95/andreatny/bw4.jpg">

Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>By a few years as to the Winfield. <br /><br />I remember these from when I was a kid. They are response cards that were sent out to fans requesting autographed photos of the players if they wrote to the Yankees directly. I had several of them from the 1977-79 era that I got as a kid from the Yankees but I lost them over time.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Wish I could help you, but still, they are beautiful cards. Brings back memories. Can't help but notice the spelling of Mercer(sic.) Andre Robertson, he was a wonderful shortstop, and I thought he'd be in that position for a long time until a car accident wrecked his career.

Posted By: <b>bobw</b><p>Boxingcardman is right. I also got these in the mail when I wrote to the Yankees. I believe that there is a set of Mets too. <br /><br />The signatures are stamped on. I went to a show in Brooklyn NY a few years ago and a dealer had a whole stack of them and was selling them as real autographs.

Posted By: <b>Tony Andrea</b><p>Thanks guys. I appreciate the info so far on the cards. By the way, the Murcer and Munson<br />labels on the sleeves were labeled incorrectly by the original seller I obtained<br />them from. The "stamped" auto's are spelled correctly on the cards of both.<br /><p>Tony

Posted By: <b>Mike</b><p>I have a set... somewhere in my house. I was given them from a friends father. From what I remember he was a photographer and sometimes took pictures for the Yankees. He must have bought or been given a whole bunch of them because he had enough to hand out to every kid on our little league team. I remember mine being more mid-80's. Mattingly, Henderson, the Winfield looks familiar. I remember the blue ink signature, it makes it look deceptively real.
