When I got this 16×20 signed by Paul Konerko and Frank Thomas, I doubted I’d ever get Magglio Ordonez to complete it. I’m VERY happy to say I was wrong! This is now one of my favorite 16x20s in my collection.
It’s been a while since my last post. For that, I apologize. To make it up to you, I present…
THE BEST POST EVER!
I’ll spare you any further buildup. Here are my new Frank Thomas items… all 14 of them!
First, the multi-signed cards that I finally completed.
Not bad, huh? How about a few “jumbo” cards, one of which is multi-signed?
Great stuff, right? Let’s keep going! How about a baseball?
Okay, just one baseball. No big deal. How about 3 16x20s?
16×20 not big enough for you? Picky, aren’t you? Fine, here is a 20×24, loaded with inscriptions!
Still not impressed? Only care about the most premium items? Well, I guess I can’t satisf… wait, hold on. What’s this, a jersey? An authentic World Series jersey? With 6 inscriptions? And PSA/DNA authentication?
I participated in the Jose Abreu signing at Bergie’s Sports Card Dugout. My friend Paul took my four items. I received the first two of those items yesterday, and they look great! Both are 16x20s.
I sent in several items for Tom Orr’s private signing with Dick Allen. I wish I could have sent more, but funds are a bit tight right now, due to this signing, another signing for which I’ll be posting the results in the next few days, and a few bat purchases.
I already have a slabbed Dick Allen rookie, but half of his signature is in the black area of the card, so I decided to upgrade. This time I clearly labeled where I wanted him to sign it, and he signed it perfectly. I also sent in my two favorite Dick Allen Sox cards, ’72 and ’73 Topps.
In addition to the cards, I sent in two 16x20s and a Sports Illustrated. Luckily I was able to find a nice condition no-label Sports Illustrated. Chuck Supple hooked me up!
On the 16×20, I had asked for a “Wampum Walloper” inscription. Apparently Dick wouldn’t put that, as I got “1972 AL MVP” (which I had listed as a fallback option) instead. Still looks great!
