Needing Help With Reggie Jackson, Barry Bonds, Danny White.

Post by sun devil on Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:42 pm

Folks,
I'm trying to put together a collection of 200 Autographed cards from the 1990 Arizona State set. I have been successful with many so far (see my blog for the examples) but these 3 are and have been a complete pain in the butt to even try to get. Could anyone please offer some valuable ideas/advice on how to get these? I've lost almost every Danny White card in the mail, Reggie Jackson will sign a card for $75 on his site (not happening) and I've never seen any address or public show for Bonds. Is it safe to say that these 3 won't be a part of the signed collection?

We have addresses for all three in our database. But only 1 is tested successfully!


Reggie Jackson has been signing TTM for a $40 donation to his Mr October foundation. That may be worth it to finish a set.


We have Barry Bonds home address in our database... but from what I heard... if you write to him TTM you only get a preprint card back. Who knows maybe with such a cool item... he may sign it.


We have a work addy for White also. He is a part of Global Team 11 & BodHD. It is untested!


Hope this help!

Coach,

thanks for the reply and advice. I think I'm going to try Bonds first. I might have to go the route of sending him some pictures of the signed ASU cards I already have for the set, explain to him that I'm not a dealer and GENUINE ASU fan who just wants everyone in the set and MAYBE he might sign it. Do you have any other suggestions of what I could send/say to convince him that this is not just him signing his 4,386th 87 topps card? Laughing

So here is what I did: I printed this out on a 4x6 glossy card and dropped him a quick note that went something like:

"I know you are very busy so I'll keep this short. I'm just a loyal Sun Devil fan who is trying to put together a signed collection of the 1990 ASU cards. I would be most appreciative if you would be willing to sign yours for me. I am not a dealer and will never sell it, that I promise you. Your consideration would be greatly appreciated."

Danny has appeared at events in the past couple of years. A member on another site got him for $10/card for me on a few.

Keep us posted if your 'plea' idea/image worked!

Lol... I remember you.

You were the guy who didn't want to give me Jim Everett's address on Fanmail.

You wanted to sell me his autograph instead.

Honestly, I'd try Reggie Jackson with the $40...if he doesn't want to do it for that much then he'll just send it back with your money...worth a shot. If all else fails, suck it up and pay his requested fee...sucks but it may be the only way you get it.

I've looked up the last 4 private signings that he has done on another site and the minimum fee was $89...

In regards to Barry Bonds, he never does signings...last private signing that I saw was back in 2001 and I think he was wanting $200-500 per item...
