View Full Version : HOF Auto's Part 6 (Scan Heavy) - Reggie, Lefty, Catfish & McCovey

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.

Notes: Besides Willie Mays, Reg-gie is my baseball idol...but I hear he's a p_ick, so I never wanted to meet him in person. Ugh. The Carlton cards I actually got in a trade a few years back. They weren't TTM.

Reggie, Lefty and Catfish all look correct. I can't speak to Willie McCovey because he's a guy that I never got in person, FWIW

2nd Carlton looks a little iffy to me. Never saw the 'ST' like that, but he is notoriously inconsistent.

McCovey looks good to me...ditto on Hunter.

I don't like either of the '82 Jacksons. The other Jacksons look good to me though.

I've never seen that J on a hunter auto. Unless he changed on his later sighings

Hard to tell on a scan this size, but the Hunters do appear small and "scratchy "
