Default Fritz Fisher Examples

Anyone have a Fritz Fisher exemplar that matches this? I only have a couple in my file and they are nothing like this - granted they are both from 62-63 and this from later. Thanks!

This example, I believe likely from Jack Smalling Collection, was recently sold on eBay by seller gregg57:

Beautiful signature. Where did you get this? The Fisher autograph is my white whale as I have over 1000 Detroit Tigers autographs and missing this one.

Itís not mine, itís currently on eBay. Iím just not convinced of itís authenticity, I was hoping someone had an example that matched it not on his 66 Topps, because Iíve seen two identical to this but both on 66 Topps. I was more tracking it for population purposes, but if it better matched my example on file I probably would have bought it immediately.

If you are needing a Fisher example, I believe the Knoxville Smokies team sheet also on eBay to be authentic. Someone else might know better, I just track rare signed Topps cards.

Thumbs up

Somebody ought to try and talk him into a private signing if he's capable. He lives in Toledo, Ohio.

What is his story? Just a dedicated non-signer?

I can see the guys who like their privacy and are harder, but possible. But to just shun it completely with a passion, that I don't get.

From what I understand he's quite a good guy, just doesn't care to sign. Most of the extremely difficult signers seem aloof, combative, or both. From everything I've read and heard it isn't the case with Fritz - although this is all second hand.

My understanding is that since his career ended he has completely objected to signing. Some collectors state that for a period he agreed to signed balls and photos only, but never cards. In three years I've only seen one photo (very questionable) and zero balls. I personally find it extremely hard to believe that he ever signed reliably post career.

Interesting. I have a semi-related story and will probably never know what really happened. I posted on my blog for anyone that might be able to help track down Bill Haas. He was on 2 Topps cards in the 60s, a 63T with the Dodgers and a 64T with the Mets. I guess he was supposed to be a big prospect for the Dodgers, but he got cold and they dumped him. His career never really panned out.

Someone saw the blog entry and emailed me, stating that they were friends with him and would talk to him and try to help me get an autograph. Long story short, The guy wants me to call him, so I do and then he ends up conferencing in Bill to the call and we chat for a few minutes. He tells a few short baseball stories and seems like a really decent guy. He agrees to sign a card and I end up mailing it, at the same time with several other requests to other players that were almost considered sure things. I figured Haas was too.

I end up getting all of them back, EXCEPT Haas. I never bothered to actually track the packages (I had tracking on both) to make sure my packaged arrived or to see if he ever mailed the return package. I want to think it just got lost and maybe this will motivate me to dig up the tracking numbers and check.

The card is not a cheap common either, because its a higher number series and he shared it with Rusty Staub!

Thanks for sharing Curt. I haven't been tracking Haas, but I'll add him to the list.

Well mine looks way too similar to yours. The seller had a story that he lived in Toledo and knew Fritz, and he agreed to sign a few cards. This was a couple of years back. I had been looking for a signed card for years.
