View Full Version : JULY autographed pick ups

Well I started off the month with a bang.
1972 HOF Yearbook signed by 27 total and 22 HOF players. Berra is the only guy alive with an unsigned plaque in the book. I think I will try to get him in ballpoint at an upcoming appearance.

I got it today, in the mail, from Jim Stinson. (Little plug)
I am just blown away by this.

Interestingly, there are only 3 HOFers still alive who were inducted prior to 1972...Musial, Koufax, and Berra. As someone who experienced the auto boom of the 80's, it's kind of sad to realize that all of those guys are now gone.

Mark,

Your HOF signed book is awesome! I especially like that it appears that all signers used the same ball point pen. Extra credit points for that.

Congrats! ;):D

Awesome pickup Mark. I'm still waiting on you to sell me that '77 HOF program. ;)

This is the opposite of a vintage pickup, but I got it at the minor league park today. An uncut sheet of cards from my local Class A team that I got signed after the game. I think there are two or three guys on this team that have a chance at the Bigs... 21 out of 30 cards are auto'd and 3 of them I'm missing are coaches.

Well, picked up this signed Jimmie Foxx 1938 Goudey Heads Up for a steal on the bay in looking at comparables. It got certified through PSA/DNA (which I don't care, I want a slab protection on the card). And would like to give Jim and Richard a shout out again for their help. Will post pics in slab upon receipt.

Alright, here's my Foxx in the slab, next post will be my insane purchase

HOF Auto Rookies
07-19-2012, 02:10 PM
Alright folks, the moment a lot of you have been waiting for and asking what my huge purchase was going to be. I kept it quiet to ensure that I got it, and boy did I ever get it. This was a once in a lifetime purchase for me, a Lou Gehrig autographed 1933 DeLong rookie card (yes I know all the banter for rookies, but if the 33 Goudey can be a rookie, why can't this. All that matters is I consider it one).

Never thought I would own a Gehrig signed card. He had a five year window to sign this, I consider this to be one of the rarest and most difficult signed cards of a HOF'er to obtain based on how difficult it would be to get him to sign this before his disease took his toll in '39 when he stopped signing.

I know autograph is faint, card is not in the best shape, but I don't give a damn, it's a Lou Gehrig autographed rookie card!!!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do, so enjoy!

Yeah saw it on their for a looooooong time, got it less than those prices, but thank you. Was a little worried having no experience with the seller, but messaging back and forth sure helped my confidence in him.

Brent,
Very nice Gehrig.
I too have been watching it for a very looong time. I asked the seller about it at least a year ago, if not more. at the time, he was unwilling to move much and I couldn't convince myself of the $4k value.
To me it's not a rookie (neither is the 33 Goudey), but that doesn't really matter. A nice signed Gehrig card is still a nice signed Gehrig card.

Congrats and enjoy it.
Mark

Thank you Mark,

I didn't pay the prices listed for the listing, but what sold me was it's a Gehrig signed card, simple enough. They're tough, and it's a sweet set. Any DeLong experts here? Why is this card 3x as much more than Goudey? As these more scarce?

Thanks

07-19-2012, 04:28 PM
I would assume there were less Delongs produced, but am not sure. I would ask the Delong question on the card side.

Just out of curiosity, what does Mantle say about the importance of singles?

Just out of curiosity, what does Mantle say about the importance of singles?

Andrew, in the context of Mantle being able to hit 60 homeruns, he tried to explain how hard that was and it was just as important to hit singles and take walks and not makes outs trying to hit all homeruns...although I've seen a few interviews where he said he tried to hit it as hard as he could every time!

Mark, thanks! This magazine's looking kinda lonely. Maybe you should send over that Mantle Sports Ill. :D

I just picked up this nice 1931 signed album page of HOF catching great Ray Schalk.

Ray Schalk played for the 1919 Black Sox, but he was was of the "Clean Sox" players. Schalk was unique in that he caught 3 no-hitters (including Charlie Robertson's perfect game) as well as an "unofficial" no-hitter. Pretty awesome early vintage signature of Mr. Schalk that I'm happy to add to my collection...
