Unless you consider this to be a baseball card...

I love the Steen signed M101-2s, and have a bunch myself. Does the Hall of Fame keep these or other 8x10 prints in the baseball card exhibit? It's definitely worth considering!

I have the Wags plus Archer and Tesreau. And a few of the 1940's examples.

Default Oldest signed card

I believe this is the oldest signed baseball card known to exist. Might be HOF worthy worthy.

I acquired it from Mastro Auctions several years back. Subsequently Hauls of Shame alleged it had been stolen from the HOF. Long story short, this allegation proved to be correct and I returned it to the Hall. Having my name alongside in the mud with Bill Mastro, Doug Allen and Peter Nash does not count as one of my best hobby experiences. 'Nuf ced.
Truly impressive David!

Great stuff everyone. I'd have to say that the Mathewson or Mack signed Old Judge are definitely in the lead. Both Hall-worthy for sure. Keep 'em coming!

The foresight that someone showed to get that Mack card signed absolutely boggles the mind.

Hall may have some interest in this. I believe this to be one of, if the not the, earliest career contemporary signatures of the great Walter Johnson. This is a postcard sent by Walter in 1908, his second major league season, between games against the Indians and Tigers. He mentions winning the game the day before in the first lines of the card.
