Default Totally blown away with this HOF piece I picked up!!!

With over 1,000 HOF autos and several amazing multi-signed pieces in my collection, it takes a lot to get me impressed.

Well it happened today. I went and personally picked up my most recent auction pickup. I was so excited to see it because there was a major autograph on the piece that I saw and neither the item description nor the JSA Certificate mention this player. Would love to hear what everyone thinks about them.

First off, here are the pics...





These are two Hall of Fame Programs from the 1983 Induction. Someone must have spent some serious time acquiring all of these autos. They all totally missed the Roy Campanella auto in the middle of the second program.

Here is a list of the signers:

Program 1:
1 Joe Cronin
2 Bill Dickey
3 Al Lopez
4 Willie Mays
5 Billy Herman
6 Bob Feller
7 Luke Appling
8 Monte Irvin
9 Enos Slaughter
10 Joe DiMaggio
11 Willie Stargell
12 Ernie Banks
13 Harmon Killebrew
14 Robin Roberts
15 Warren Spahn
16 James Bell
17 Eddie Mathews
18 Johnny Mize
19 Whitey Ford
20 Brooks Robinson
21 Reggie Jackson
22 Mickey Mantle
23 Frank Robinson
24 Hank Aaron
25 Don Drysdale
26 Stan Musial
27 Yogi Berra
28 Willie McCovey
29 Ted Williams
30 Bill Terry
31 Ralph Kiner
32 Pete Rose
33 Buck Leonard
34 Joe Sewell
35 Juan Marichal
36 Duke Snider
37 Sandy Koufax

Program 2:
1 Tom Seaver
2 Lou Boudreau
3 Red Schoendienst
4 Luis Aparicio
5 Billy Williams
6 Lou Brock
7 George Kell
8 Al Kaline
9 Al Barlick
10 Phil Niekro
11 Rick Ferrell
12 Johnny Bench
13 A.B. Chandler
14 Rod Carew
15 Jim Palmer
16 Hal Newhouser
17 Fergie Jenkins
18 Ray Dandridge
19 Pee Wee Reese
20 Roy Campanella
21 Carl Yastrzemski
22 Early Wynn
23 Don Sutton
24 Gaylord Perry
25 Steve Carlton
26 Joe Morgan
27 Tony Perez
28 Jim Hunter
29 Bob Gibson
30 Charlie Gehringer
31 Bob Doerr
32 Leo Durocher
33 Bob Lemon
34 Rollie Fingers
35 Hoyt Wilhelm

A total of 72 autos. 71 HOFers and Pete Rose. Just unbelievable.

Should I add more to it or leave it as is???

Default Very nice!

Great piece! I have a similar item (HOF bat signed by a ton of HOFs) and it has just been sitting there. Last summer, Rickey Henderson was in town as roving batting instructor for the local minor league team and I brought the bat to the game (very nervous!) and waited until it was over and Rickey took a look at it and said "I can't sign that because my agent would be mad at me". Presumably because it was a bat and typically gets $200 or so to sign bats.

Long story short....I've given up on adding to it because of Rick the "_ rick".

I should have known as I've seen how Rickey treats his fans on occasion.

Thanks for sharing and oh by the way, my bat also has Rose so go Pete go!

Peace, Mike

PS It is pretty uncommon to see Ted, Mick and Joe on the same piece. A lot of items have 1 or 2 but not always all 3 so BRAVO to that find!

I absolutely LOVE these pieces related to the HOF that have massive quantities of autographs on them. Especially when the image is HOF related. These are right in my wheelhouse. So impressive.

Thanks for the compliments. I really love it.

I am debating adding more HOFers from the same period to the piece. What do you guys think??

I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

I think you should add to it given the chance. So many of those already on have passed away and there are not many more from that era still living. I can only think of a handful still alive and signing that isn't already on one of the programs.
Yaz, Nolan Ryan and Bobby Doerr are the only three that pop in my head. I'm sure there are more though.
Of course that depends on when this "era" ends in your mind.
Congrats though. Great piece!
Drew

Edit. Just noticed Doerr and Yaz on the second one. Who is left then?

I was thinking Fisk, Sutter, Schmidt, Ripken, Sandberg, Boggs, Rice, Cepeda, and Ryan. Maybe a couple of managers like Herzog, Torre, and LaRussa

I'm not an autograph guy either, but TOTALLY agree - FABULOUS PIECE! ...and Campy's signature is STILL more legible than many of today's players!!

Heck, I'd try to get as many HOFers as I could, no matter what their era. Keep adding to them! Very cool!!
