Default Sharing a unique autograph - Slightly OT, but it is a pre-war star

Posted By: jackgoodman

Leon, if considered OT, please feel free to delete.

Thought I would share this autograph I received back in the '60's. I would send 3x5 cards to players (names and addresses usually found in the Trader Speaks) and ask for their autographs. I would usually include a card with a question on it, requesting that they answer the question for me. Many didn't, but some did and they make a valued part of my collection.

This was probably the best response.

Jack, very cool. How many of those cards did you get back with the questions answered?

Daniel,

Only got back about a half dozen. But it made opening my mail more interesting. I took my desire to be different into the autographed ball arena, asking players to sign their full name (first, middle, last) for me. I thought that since a Babe Ruth sig was a great collectible, that a ball signed George Herman Ruth would be even better and a much scarcer signature.

I've now got great sigs of Wilver Dennel Stargell, Jos. P. DiMaggio (that was the best he offered), Johnny Lee Bench, and Sanford Sandy Koufax, among others.

It is a neat item, and probably was Dizzy's words, but the actual signature is secretarial.

Dean was close to illiterate and seldom wrote anything beyond his name.

You may already have know that, but just letting others know who see something similar in the future.

the signature looked a little off. Normally you see the quotes around the Dizzy part of the name. Have a couple 3x5's and HOF plaques of him. Obviously his words though spoken to someone and still a cool item.

Kind of a small scan, but you get the general idea. From a recent eBay auction:

You guys are definitely the top of the game.

I hadn't looked at the autographs in probably 20 years or so. But pulling the others that were returned at the same time, absolutely makes you guys right. I always had assumed that the lack of quotation marks was a result of his telling a story. But the signatures on the extra 3x5's all have the quotes.

I still like the item alot. But thanks for the heads-up and knowledge sharing.

The quotes don't determine if the signature is secretarial or authentic. The piece encapsulated by PSA is authentic, however the three index cards are secretarial. Sorry to be a buzzkill Jack, I think that Dean just had somebody answering his mail at the time that you made the autograph request.
