Default 1957 Topps Brooks Robinson

Thought Iíd discuss in the autograph section concerning a player signed run. Iíve been working on a Brooks Robinson regular issued card run in pen and wondering where you guys locate the signed items in your collection. Iíve been trying to find a nice bold signed Ď57 rookie card for some time now and canít seem to locate just the right card. Iíve seen a few nice examples in sharpie, but really wanted an ink vintage signature.

Any suggestions or recommendations for the search?

Nice Brooksie! Thanks for the picture.

The other thing is Iíd like the autograph to be a vintage signature. Not really from the Ď57 period, but not a modern one. Also, I personally doesnít want any inscriptions, not that I donít like them, but it will fit much better within my signed run. The card has to be decent as well, maybe Ex and above. Am I just too picky; Iím not sure...

Yes, it sounds like you're too picky. HOF autograph rookie cards signed 50 years ago aren't readily available.

Iím not necessarily looking for a Brooksie that was signed near when the card was produced. Really could be a pen signature from the 60ís probably even into the 80ís or even the 90ís; between those periods. Brooks basically shortcuts his autos now, and not that itís a bad thing; I just like the full signature that he had in the past. Also, Iíve seen a few that were light so I try to avoid those as well.

I think youíre right though I am a bit picky...

You are definitely looking for a unicorn. For a long time it has been thought of as forbidden to have a card signed and that has only changed in the last 10 years. Thatís why signed Puckett rookies are so rare. Good luck on the search. Iím sure itís out there but may be very difficult to find.

Not necessarily true. Almost all of the in person collectors in Boston during the 1980's, of which I was one, were getting cards signed. I mostly got index cards from 1983 forward though I did get about half of the 1983 Fleer set signed.

Yes; I believe youíre right that Iím looking for something that there are a relative few.

Iíve been collecting Brooks for some time now and itís only been a year or so that I started this run. I saw a few of those single player collector signed runs and thought it would be a fun side project and it has been. The problem was I was a bit hasty when I first started and picked up a few that Iíd like to upgrade.

Thanks for the feedback!

I've never heard of such a thing.

Back in the Day the theory was you should not get an autograph on a card that is worth more than the auto. It has been a little longer than 10 years. I think it started changing after Mantle passed.
That is why so few DiMaggio signed cards and why 51 and 52 Mantles sell for so much. The cards were worth more than the auto's Even at the 500 Home run show very few cards were signed and that was 89 If I remember correctly. And if you had a rookie card signed by all 11 that day you would have done very well much more than the value of a ball or litho.

There are 8 Kirby Puckett Autographed 1984 Fleer Update cards graded by PSA/DNA. There are no 1985 Topps Tiffany and none may exist.

Those Puckett cards were so expensive that not many people would ďruinĒ the card by having it signed. Puckett died in 2006.
