21 New Frank Thomas Items

Holy cow, when I was a kid I never thought there’d be a day where I would get 21 Frank Thomas autographs in one fell swoop! But here we are. Frank has been doing very affordable signings the last year or two. Rumor has it the price is going to go back up on his next signing. So I got a bunch of stuff done. Mostly cards, but at heart I’m really a card guy.

The majority of these cards are just cards I thought would be cool to have signed. I didn’t NEED them in any real sense. A few were to complete multi-signed cards, and just one was for a set I’m working on.

With one exception, I’m happy with how they turned out. The only one I’m not thrilled with is the minor league card with Jeff Conine. I don’t know why Thomas signed it at that strange angle.

The Thomas/McGwire dual signed card is now one of my favorite cards in my collection. It turned out spectacularly.

The baseball turned out very nicely, but I didn’t get what I paid for. I paid for a “2005 WS Champs” inscription. Hopefully the promoter has some way of getting the inscription added.

Lastly, apparently Frank had never seen the Blue Jays image and wanted a copy for himself. The promoter (Alan Moore from SportsGraphing) is going to get me another item signed with inscription in exchange for the image.

Any way, on with the autographs!

Best Update EVER!!!

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?
