Scott,
Thanks for the kind words. It really is a special grouping. I mean, really, what are the odds that all of this stuff would stay together for all this time intact?
I keep looking at the items and can't keep from smiling.

I can't imagine how you could possibly quit smiling!

I'm not particularly knowledgeable as far as this memorabilia stuff goes, but my grandma recently died and when cleaning her place out we found 2 pictures, one of which is signed, in similar poses as you have. We have one like the one where he is standing next to Babe and Lou at the game, and another one where Babe is shaking his hand after the restaurant visit. The one we have that looks signed is the one where he's shaking his hand, since it seems like yours has a signature in the same place to I was wondering if you knew whether it was an authentic original signature, or just a copy? Thanks, this information is so interesting!

I've been busy lately and never got around to reading this thread in it's entirety, and after seeing it was 5 pgs long now, and still being on the busy side, I wasn't going to, but needless to say, I am super glad I did as I believe this is the best story/post I have read on Net54 since I joined.

When I was reading it, I was in awe and couldn't believe, as was mentioned, that it all stayed together, but to have Peter also reply, who's Grandfather was also part of this, is just surreal.

Thanks ever so much for sharing!
