My Multi-Signed HOF Baseball Project

Post by vjw0307 on Mon Jan 28, 2013 5:22 pm

While my '53 Archives Project has taken a bit of a rest (down to the final 11, almost impossible to find cards), I've decided to start another fun project. I spent some time looking for a baseball that already had a few signatures on it, hopefully a few deceased players. I picked up this ball for a good price. The existing 5 signatures come with a LOA from JSA...3 of the 5 are deceased. Going to build off of it and update my project as I go along...

Currently has:

Bob Feller
Enos Slaughter
Johnny Mize
Bobby Doerr
Billy Williams

I've got 6 signings lined up so far. I'll be sending to Tom Orr who will be getting the following guys added to the ball for me between March 8th-10th:

Bill Mazeroski
Lou Brock
Bob Gibson
Red Schoendienst
Tony Perez
Jim Palmer

Should be a fun project!

Not sure yet...need to see how much room is left on the ball. I'd like to send it to the quick and easy guys like Boggs, Bunning, Gossage, Fingers, etc but if I have limited room, I'd like to get some bigger names up there first.

The guy who I'm going through to get the signatures I listed above is also seeing Ripken, Fisk, Murray and Frank Robinson but that was going to set me back another $290...just don't want to spend that kind of money yet...

I'm not going to rush this piece..I have a tendency to want to get everyone as quick as possible...so I'm going to TRY and go slow with this one.

Just rec'd my baseball back from Tom Orr...he's had it for the last 2 months and helped me w/ 6 signings. I'd signed up to get Jim Palmer but some how Tom Orr forgot to have my ball signed...but he allowed me to apply Palmer's fee toward Getting McCovey. Now up to 11 sigs.

Sigs added:

Bob Gibson
Lou Brock
Tony Perez
Bill Mazeroski
Willie McCovey
Red Schoendienst

Added Boggs...a little disappointed that he put his HOF inscription because he's now the only signature out of 12 that has a HOF inscription
