Default Help ID'ing this 28 signed 1976 Mets Auto Book (Seaver, Torre, Frazier, + ID'd)

Hi,

Soliciting help to identify some of these signatures. They are inside a 1976 Mets Autographs book. I've ID'd Tom Seaver, Joe Torre, Ed Kranepool (2), Bob Murphy (Sportscaster), Lee Mazzilli, Donald Grant (Chairman/owner), Mickey Lolich, Dave Kingman, Bruce Boisclair, Mike Phillips, Joe Frazier, Bobbie Valentine (1977) - The rest I am having trouble with. I also see a former prospect, Jeff Grose. There are about 10 or 11 that I can't get. I appreciate the help in advance.

Thank you for the help. There's a loose 3" x 5" white paper dual cut in addition to the book. It's Seaver on one side and with your help identifying, Ralph Kiner on the back. I appreciate it.

Agree with Lockwood.

Below Kiner is Julius LaRosa, singer

2 after Lockwood is Mike Vail, Met

After Mazilli, pretty sure it says Jim Hanson but unsure who that might be

After Boisclair looks like maybe Ray Heatherton, broadway actor/singer

After Frazier, Ralph Caso, local politician

After "Bill Caputo" looks like maybe Tommy Holmes, of 44-game hit streak fame.

Aftrr Kingman is probably Linda deRoulet. She was the owner of the Mets in the late 70s. She was the daughter of Joan Payson who took over after her death

I appreciate all the help. I'd like to eventually resell this piece. I just put the numbers together and it's going to cost me roughly $165 for PSA to stamp it. I'd like to get advice from the experts seeing if this would be a worthwhile pursuit? My purchase price was relatively reasonable. Thanks, Kyle

I dont think the extra $165 is worth it in this case. I cannot imagine that you would recoup that amount from any premium to non certed the sales price.

Thank you - I felt the same way which is why I've decided to proceed without a TPA.
