Default How hard is it to find McCormick & Bridwell

Just doing some initial research for a possible display to go along with my Fred Merkle. Moose McCormick was on 3rd and Al Bridwell hit the single when Fred Merkle forgot to touch 2nd base and ended the game Sept 23, 1908.
Anyway, does anybody here know how hard both autographs are to find and how much they run?
Thanks!!!

I think I have bought one Bridwell and sold one over the last few years. I feel like I bought the one for around $50 or $60 and sold one for $80. I can't recall having a McCormick in the last several years.

I recall a story that Moose McCormick carried a moose stamp with him and would put it by his autograph...

Yep...found one.

I think whether you would pursue this very neat project might depend on if you are a patient man.

Thanks Jeff and Todd. I have great patience...mainly because I always have several projects in the works, so I can move from one to another when one hits the wall. LOL
Jeff, it looks like you were right on about Bridwell. Since you posted that, I found one in the price range you mentioned. Couldn't find it before because I was looking for Albert and not Al. Thankfully, I'm not going to try and get umpire Hank O'Day for this project. I think I'll save that money and buy a car. LOL

I got my Moose and Bridwell from Jim Stinson and Kevin Keating without much effort or outlay of money in the 1990s . Without them in the active selling market now it will not be impossible to find them but probably more a matter of patience . Monetarily I don't see a big financial outlay either relatively speaking . Hank O'Day on the other hand is another story . I have only seen 4.
Good Luck !
