Who wouldn’t want a Card owned by a former player nick named the meat hook. It wouldn’t matter to me who owned the card,but the first National in Baltimore when he displayed his collection I happened to walk over back to back mornings from the Hilton to the convention center with him and He couldn’t have been a nicer guy to talk with, he made sure I brought my sons by on the free kids day to get a picture.

Definitely one who flew under the radar in terms of being one of the “good guys” of the game. Loved watching him play in Cincinnati growing up and can remember him signing for hours after games! Also, I believe all the proceeds from the sale of his collection went to charity. Total class act!

Simple answer: No. I watched him play extensively for the Tigers. A sometimes good, but certainly never great player. His prior ownership adds nothing in terms of pedigree for me.

Happy holidays,

Larry

I remember reading a story where he said he would likely leave them to his children. Wonder why the change of heart?

If the proceeds did go to charity, then good on him!

Much of the proceeds went to his foundation to teach inner city kids how to play baseball.

Default 93 SP Jeter PSA 10

The Jeter SP PSA 10 was reslabbed without the pedigree label of his collection.

Well, good on him. I still wonder why he swayed from leaving them to his children but maybe that was their wish as well?
