Default The Best Of Net54

Well, in light of all the poopy posts and threads going on with all these attacks etc., thought it would be a nice time to stray away from that to have a fun thread to showoff the unbelievable collections of autographs here on Net54.

So, post the very best/rarest/or most valuable autograph you have.

I'll start off with my Gehrig DeLong, and Mantle rookie. I never thought in my life would I own a Gehrig autograph, let alone on a card due to how small of a window he had to sign.

And the Mantle, I never thought in my wildest dreams I would own a Mantle signed rookie, and everytime I look at the card, I have the biggest damn grin on my face. I also think it may be the only card in existence that he signed his full name.

The other two that are close, is my Arky Vaughan and if my Hanlon is authentic, that would shoot up to number one. I love Arky as a player, and he is difficult to get on a card, and I don't need to say anything about Hanlon. We all know (guys who collect HOF baseball auto's) how difficult he is.

I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have been able to get the opportunity to add these, and I look forward to seeing everyone else's 'Best Of'.

Thanks Chris, I appreciate it.

Any thoughts on the Hanlon? I'm on the fence about it. I've seen some great exemplars...but again, it is Hanlon lol

I don't know "Hanlon," but I love the "Mickey Charles Mantle" sig.

Thank you, glad you like it, nice to finally have an autograph Mr. Williams approves of . Yeah, it's one of a kind. It's one of those pieces that you saw and say, "I HAVE to have that".

Cool stuff Brent. Do you have a bigger scan do the Hanlon? Maybe post it in a different thread so the positivity of this one isn't derailed with authentication disagreements.

Excellent idea Brent.

Very difficult choice. Hmmm.

OK a couple of my favorite autos.

Lou Gehrig cut in a folk art frame.


I know it's not vintage, but I love it. Its a page inside the March 1950 Sport Magazine.


I could have chosen any of my 34 goudeys, but this one is probably rarest. Ed Brandt had the shortest window to sign this card of anyone else in the set, as he died in 1944, except for Gehrig. Now I have seen multiple signed copies of both Gehrig cards, likely due to his immense popularity, but have never seen another Brandt.


1966 Hall of Fame Yearbook. Signed by a bunch all gotten by me in person on the 1980s show circuit.
