Or maybe Doyle was the Bob Feller of his time.

I don't think that invalidates the previous theory - Doyle might have had a pile of them stashed for years.

I think it's great that you collect autographed T206's - I wish I had thought of it many years ago when they could be found. Are you saving the extras for trade-bait?

Maybe the cards came from one collection that were all signed prior to the release of the 350 series, some kids favorite player.

They wouldn't be signed in ball point pen if they were signed during his playing days.

Perhaps, but Marquard is a better fit!

The cards were sent by collectors, usually one at a time. The only "cards" the old players handed out were coupons for The Glory of Their Times, and sometimes small black and white photos. Late in his life Snodgrass wrote that he averaged about three thru the mail auto requests per week.

I dont really consider my dupes to be extras -- each one is unique! However, if I have dupes of a signed pose, I do consider trade offers of all kinds. Whenever possible, I try to trade for signed T206s I dont already have.

I know. But Doyle might have had a pile of that particular card, and sent them out when autographs were requested with no card included. We weren't around, so tough to say exactly what any individual player might have done differently from what we think was the norm. Crawford used to hand out HOF postcards. Other players are documented to have ordered piles of their favorite photos from Burke, for signing and mailing out to requestors. Not every autograph hunter mailed a government postcard or T206 to their favorite players.

Back in the early seventies when I was collecting through the mail autographs of old timers, I would request a photo.

One of the players I wrote to sent me a black and white reproduction of his T206 card that he had signed. It was the size of a real T206 and both the front and back were reproduced.

I'm not sure if he had the card reproduced himself, and sorry, I can't remember who it was!
