    That is impressive! I really want a Bresnahan, he had a cool looking signature. Can you post pics?

    How many BBHOF do you have? Must be well over 200 with those names. Would love to see pics. What medium are some of these on?

    I would have to think 1 of my multi signed HOF bats is the most expensive item I have. I really like my 20x24 of Cy Young signed by HOFers that have a Cy Young Award.

    For baseball, it is a Campanella 8x10 I got in person at a show in LA in late 80s. Would an autopen help him sign? I remember him doing it by hand, just very slowly. I always figured "autopen" meant it was a machine that did the signing for him. Have pictures somewhere of him signing. Wish I had gotten more pieces done. $50 signing price at the time seemed like a ton.

    My other most valuable piece is a multi-signed Celtics v Lakers 1967 8x10 photo - signed in person by Chamberlain, West, Baylor, & Havlicek. Signed by Russell via mail-order

    Mathewson - dinner program
    Ruth - cut
    Cobb - Check
    Wagner - cut
    Johnson - check
    Cartwright - cut
    Bresnahan - contract
    Jennings - program
    Chadwick - address from mailing envelope
    Tinker - TLS

    I have around 180. It's funny I have a bunch of tough, scarce guys, but haven't gotten around to getting guys like Schmidt, Stargell, etc.

    Here are some pics

    Bresnahan Contract



    Cobb Check



    Johnson Check





    I'll add more later, this was all I had already in photobucket.

Very careful buying deceased, and usually only buy signed legal document (checks, contracts, letters on personal letterhead) and avoid cuts-which is getting expensive.. However, I have one dealer that is 100% legit and one of the best of the biz. Recently certified this purchase for me:



    Would love to see other people's items.
    Since you posted this old Philadelphia A's piece, I figured I would post mine:

    Actually not as much as you think; I got it for a steal in the Sotheby's online Halper auction. It was listed as a Jacob Ruppert signed Toledo Baseball Club contract. Only by clicking on the listing, reading the writeup, and looking at the enlarged photo did it say anything about Bresnahan. I think alot of people passed by it based on how it was listed. With all fees and shipping it was less than $500.

    That is an absolute steal. That piece has to be the coolest thing I've ever seen posted here

    Unbelievably awesome! It was worth ten times that BEFORE Ruppert made the Hall. Awesome piece.

    Bravo on the thread. Best one of the year so far. It is a true pleasure to see some really rare autographed items i kinda got a feeling as if i was at a national lol. Looking forward to future gems and solid graphing. Keep up the good work. By any chance anybody have a Thurman Munson autograph? Would love to see it.

    @autographmaster-I could have sworn I saw that piece at an online auction in the last few months. Was a great piece, but didn't understand how/why Nellie Fox was on piece as I couldn't find any connection with him and that team.
