Very Nice David! I'm still disappointed I went through 12 pages of the "good" autograph thread and never saw one Hal Chase. December RRAuction still haunts me in my sleep.

That's a GREAT Chase, David. Can we see some more of your Highlanders signatures? Pretty please?

Puttman??? Holy crap, you're going wayyy back. VERY impressive, David. It's amazing to think that he was around (and I suppose on the bench?) when Chesbro threw that wild pitch in '04...

Thank you for posting those! :)

David - are there 1903 Highlanders out that you have seen, but don't own?

Quite a few. A Net54 member has a "Lefty" Davis, I've seen a Monte Beville and a Herman Long, and a few years ago Willie Keeler's diary sold for far more than I could afford.

I bet it's a surreal feeling when you add a new one you didn't have before from 1903 though!

David, that's just friggin' awesome. Thanks so much for sharing it. How tough is it to get your hands on a Happy Jack signature, anyways? I don't recall seeing many at auction - then again, I wasn't necessarily looking, either!
