Default HOF Collectors

Are there any guys on the board that are trying to collect the sigs of all of the hall of farmers? If so, I'd love to see some of the more obscure, rare autographs...post away!

Once I finish my work on the HOF guys from the play ball set, I'm going to start work on "all" but probably never get there

Good luck finding a real Addie Joss, FWIW

I'm trying for all, knowing that it's not possible. I have 226 different right now, and adding one every 6 months or so is all I can hope to do right now given my budget (damn, those HA and REA auctions are teasing me!)

You can see all of them in the link in my sig, but my most rare and obscure is probably Willie Foster.



Would love to see all others!

Well, I try to get there in boxing, knowing that when it comes to the earliest guys from the 18th century there are no known exemplars, let alone autographs available for sale. It is also extremely challenging to pick up stuff from the foreign guys, especially earlier. Here are a few of my favorites:



Cuban HOFer Kid Chocolate signed RPPC, dedicated to fellow HOFer, boxing manager and announcer Cuco Conde



Max Baer, inscribed while heavyweight champ. Not a tough signature but it is the nicest one I've ever seen, a real blazer in person.

About 20 years ago I started a HOF collection of signed checks. This gave me a little bit more peace of mind of authenticity.

Here's some that I had scanned

Dual HOF, Warren Giles signed on the front, Bill Terry on the back






Here's a few checks from personal accounts. Their wives are listed on the checks
so they didn't have to sign their husbands name, they could sign their own.

Sweet checks, Jay. I agree about the peace of mind with checks, and they are just pretty cool documents in and of themselves. I'm personally glad I don't have to mess with them anymore, but it is kind of shame that they are disappearing, from an autograph collector's point of view. Love the Edwin Snider.

Here are my HOF checks

Ed Barrow


Tony Lazzeri


Anyway, bump to the top! I always love to see some HOF autos, so show 'em off!
