AUGUST "Show It Off!" - Signed Trading Cards

Post by coachk28 on Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:35 pm

Every month on SPAAM we will dedicate a monthly thread to a particular category in sports autograph collecting!

If you have items in your collection that fit that category, this is the time to show those items off to the rest of the SPAAM community!

Some months the category will be very general... others will be more specific.

We will even let the SPAAM community vote from time to time on what the next "Show It Off" category will be!


To kick off our first "Show It Off" thread... will start with something simple that most members on here probably have...


SIGNED TRADING CARDS


... of all kinds and sports, or even non sport signed cards!

Whether you have one, or a boat load! Or if you have a cool story to go along with one!


Let's see what you have!

I don't have too many signed trading cards in my personal collection.

What I do have was passed down to my from my dad. Vintage Cubs baseball cards that he got signed IP when he was younger during the 1960's & 70's.

These were all signed at Wrigley or at the airport.

Since times were different back then... most are signed in pen and/or pencil... and were taped or pinned to my dads bedroom wall or locker at school!


My goal now is to get newer nicer versions resigned in blue sharpie!

There are a crap load of these... but here are just a few of the big names.

I appologize for the bad/outdated picture. I'll take some new ones soon!

I know it's hard to see... but these are all signed cards of Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins, Glenn Beckert, Ken Holtzman, etc.

I have several thousand cards in my collection (+/- 25 full binders) and +/- 10 boxes (1000 count card storage box). About 3/4 of my collection is Baseball while the remaining 1/4 is Football. My 8 yr old son is into graphing now and enjoys the Father-Son trips we make to events and training camps. He has his own collection of items in his room and on his walls. He thinks it cool to have met players like Gwynn, LT, Ichiro, and Hamilton up close. He knows every request starts with "Please" and ends with "Thank you"...regardless if they sign or not.

Below are a couple cards from my personal collection and the stories behind them:

Tony Gwynn signed MINOR league Hawaii Islanders card
Rick Farrell 1933 Goudey card
John Smoltz high school issued card

Gwynn story: I got it signed at one of his free signings and he laughed when he saw it. He told me, "Man, I had hundreds of these and got rid of them all. Now, I can hardly find them. Look at the hair!" He graciously signed this and several other items for me.

Rick Farrell: I found the card at the swapmeet years ago and paid $2 for it. I got home, wrote a letter, and within a week, I had a TTM success from the HOFer.

John Smoltz: I got it signed early in his career (late 80s) when he was with the Braves. I got him during a Braves/Padres series at Jack Murphy Stadium. He just got done throwing a bullpen session and came over to sign for the fans. He looked at the card, laughed, read the stats/bio on the back then signed it (one of the best Smoltz signatures I have-very clean and legible). He asked me where I got it and I told him I bought it at a local card shop. Smoltz said the high school cards were novelty cards produced for the various high school players in the area he went to school at.

Nice Harper card! Always like the on card graphs vs the stickers.
