Default The HOF plaque society (Looking out for everyone!)

As my thread in the B/S/T forum indicates, I am ga ga for Hall of Fame plaque postcards.

I first started collected in 2003. That was my first trip to Cooperstown. I wanted to get some Hall of Famers autos but wasn't sure what medium. An expierenced collector overheard me and suggested the HOF postcards due to their easy travel size and wealth of information. He also told me to erase the top so that the signature didn't streak or skip. I didn't listen at first so that's why some of my earlier ones (Feller, Marichal, Killebrew) don't look so good in my album.

So this thread serves many purposes:
-Show off collections including recent wins on auction.
-Show off more information on these items
-Track HOF'er signings private and public
-Expose sites clearly showing fake postcards

And speaking of the last one, see what you can find wrong with this listing other than "most of them are clearly signed with the same sharpie"

Good Luck! I was deep into signed HOF Plaques some time ago (ran HOFPlaques.com). Some of them are TOUGH!

As for that link- nothing looks good from them. How do they have a FAKE Jimmy Carter Auto? And on top of that a Fake Bobby Doerr? Those guys signed(or sign) just about anything!

Thanks! I LOVED your site. Sorry it's not up anymore.

Another one, Bill McKechnie in that link is impossible. He died before the golds were printed.

Wow, every one of those is fake, and they were all signed by the same person.

Absolutely Horrible.

So today's topic is Ebay. The vast marketplace of items that is part Estate sale, part dingy flea market in a bad neighborhood.

I personally don't mind buying the cheaper ones on there but I'd never go for any bigger names. Even with the "lesser" names, I will still hesitate.
