That must be a pre-coke Gooden or someone got their judgment clouded by adding him!

I believe the Bob Feller is clubhouse signed. Sorry to break the bad news.

jk.... that wouldn't add much value, would it?

Feller looks real to me.

Maybe it isn't real, but I can't imagine any set of circumstances that would result in that pitching rubber being "clubhouse" signed regarding Feller, especially if all the other signatures are legit. I doubt it was sent through the mail, or left somewhere to be signed.

It looks real to me too. I can't imagine a lot of Sharpies in Feller's clubhouse. happy.gif
jk: A Feller "clubhouse" would certainly be a lot more rare than a real one!

Mark is kidding regarding the Feller, but a clubhouse "Feller" is probably rarer than the real thing, and may be more valuable (this is also a joke)!

I missed the joke the first time, but now I get it. If I have two Feller autographs, you know his signature isn't rare!

But wow, what a great piece. And room to add Gossage, Roberts, Bunning, Eck, Sutter, etc.

They should run contests at baseball card shows,,, first prize being one Bob Feller autograph, second prize being two Bob Feller autographs.

Anyone ever notice his late, lamented card show traveling companion "The Cowboy", an older man wearing a large cowboy hat?

The Gooden is placed well--it's in a position where it can easily be removed.

Football coach John McKay once said, "If a contest had 97 prizes, the 98th would be a trip to Green Bay."

I thought of removing the Doc Gooden but thought it is what it is part of history like the Chicago Black Sox,Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. We can not change what happened in the past but we can learn from it if we don't hide it. D.

Gooden's signature does seem a little out of place among all those HOFers, but I wouldn't remove it. He was a great pitcher, and very well liked, at least in NY.

Now if it was Kevin Brown, even though his stats are similar to Doc's, I might consider a little scrubbing.

They say the rarest Bob Feller items in the hobby are the ones that are not autographed.

I don't think there's any need to remove the Gooden. Perhaps if it was Don Aase, but Gooden won the Cy Young. His on the field career is comparable to Smoky Joe Wood's, and few if any would erase Wood's signature. And Wood didn't have to play knowing Gary Sheffield was his nephew.
