Default 1970's TTM Collection

I went to a Devils game last week with Family and Friends and a Friend mentions he came across his old collection of Through The Mail autographs he got in the Early 70's. He would send a few sheets of paper with the Year and team of the player and ask for signatures. Some sent a couple back some 5 ,10 etc. So after the game I stop by his house and he hands me an envelope with a hundred or so of these. I look some good signatures Greenbergs L.Waner Dickey Carey Grove Gehringer Dean etc.
He knows I live near PSA and asked me to get a few authenticated but before I do I could use some help. He is not well off and I dont want to spend money to authenticate that is a waste of time.
My biggest concern is Dean and Faber if a few here could let me know what they think it would be much appreciated.

Just to clarify. He would like one of each of the HOF players authenticated. So that he understands which are good and which are secretarial. Then he will decide his next steps for all the duplicates. Max Carey wrote a terse reply on back of one I will ask my buddy if I can share.
Thank you in advance to any who can help.

That's why you can't just take random numbers and say this one or that one belongs or doesn't. Cat was something special, and the writers obviously never saw him pitch. Oh well, I hope that means less people will collect him, and keep the prices low for me. LOL.

Both the Combs and Faber are not good. Rest look fine. I wrote to all the same guys when I was a kid.

So my buddy said it was ok to share this.

As I stated in the early 1970's my buddy would send a group of sheets of paper with the Team the player was on and the year. So for some of these players this was a hefty stack. Only a few sent back every sheet. Loyd Waner, Waite Hoyte, Joe McCarthy, Gehrinnger. All of these players were very nice and I am sure my Buddy was thrilled when his SASE was delivered back to him. Others would only sign one or two. Max Carey signed one and below is what he wrote on the back of his signature.
I asked my Friend if he remembered getting this. He said yes and that the next time he wrote he only sent one sheet to Max. Which he got back.. with only his signature on the front.
