View Full Version : HOF Auto's Part 4 (Scan Heavy) - Pops, Dave Winfield, Brooks Robbie & Gaylord Perry

I'm just a lurker around these parts, but I thought I'd jump in and ask for some opinions. From 1978 to 1983 I wrote to a million different players seeking their autographs on my baseball cards. A good many signed and popped them into the SASE's I enclosed. Back then, when I got an autograph through the mail, there was no doubt in my mind it was authentic. These days, though, from everything I've been gathering and all the greed that's so evident in baseball, there seems to be a different mindset. So, I'm going to post a bunch of scans of my HOFer autographs I got TTM and hope people will offer me their opinions on the authenticity of the signatures.

Some of the cards are in rough shape, because I'd send them some of the worse cards I had in case they didn't respond. That way it would have been less of a loss if I didn't hear back.

I welcome any and all input and, as a side note, most of these cards are available for trade if anyone is interested. You'll find my 1957-1971 need list over in the 50's-80's buy/sell/trade section.

Dave Winfield, Brooks and Gaylord are all correct. I never got Pops, so no comment. Gaylord's pen looks like disappearing ink, though... ;)

Whoops!! I forgot to mention that I actually got the Brooks Robinsons when I met him at a card show on Long Island in the early 80's, not TTM. Nicest frickin' guy on the planet!!
