Default Walter Johnson & Mel Ott Opinions Please

Two more pieces I am interested in, I like both but wanted to get a second opinion:

Perez did a horrible job capturing Ott's likeness. His Johnson is okay.

Hah, I do agree that he did a better on some players and not so well on others. In this case I was referring to the autos not the cards, haha.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Perez had his day.

I don't like cuts, especially when there is no context whatsoever. If you must buy them, I recommend that you get a very clear and large scan and there should be no anomalies that even hint suspicion. At least for the Johnson, you have 'Sincerely' to check on - go do some comparisons. Ott is tougher - I would never touch an Ott cut.

Whoever is making those is doing a really bad job IMO. The least they could do is cut a proper mat window in the top card, get another PS for the back side and sandwich the graph in between the two. The way they just adhere the autographs on top looks very bush league.

I think the Walter Johnson is fine. I'm not so hot on the Ott. The ink just looks too thick and consistent which seems a little odd. PSA obviously thinks they're fine for what it's worth, but I would probably pass on the Ott if offered to me.

I'd likely re-do the piece, as I agree I don't love that they are just pasted over the top. What are your thoughts on the auto itself?

That's why I found the Ott intriguing, I feel like I don't often find nice Mel Otts like that. The Walter Johnson is my primary interest

I do collect the Perez/Steele Golden Moments cards (they look like the T3's) but I am NOT a fan of these postcards.

I too hesitate with the Ott, it's on a weird medium. I know the wife cut up cancelled checks to send to collectors after he passed away.

I'm going to steer clear on the Ott, any other thoughts on the Walter Johnson?
