Sases for Sox: Billy Jo Robidoux

He didn’t sign it in a very good spot, but I’m still very happy to add this to my collection. I love collecting signed cards depicting a player that isn’t known for playing for the Sox, and that only has a few (or in this case, one) card showing him in a Sox uniform. Thanks Billy Jo!

Sases for Sox: Orlando Cabrera

I wasn’t sure if I would include items signed through PastPros in the Sases for Sox series. I decided it really isn’t any different than paying a fee directly to the player, so I will be including them.

Another one down in my Upper Deck quest. Thanks Mr. Cabrera!

Sases for Sox: Eddie Robinson

A couple of the cards were smeared slightly, and he didn’t use the blue sharpie I sent. That’s a bit disappointing considering I paid a fee for the autographs, but I guess I can’t complain too much. The man is 100 years old after all! I’m just glad the 1951 Bowman is the one card that isn’t smeared. Thanks Mr. Robinson!

Sases for Sox: Gary Peters

Sases (self addressed stamped envelopes) for Sox will be a new series detailing my successes at collecting White Sox autographs through the mail (TTM). I used to send out to tons of players, but haven’t done so in years. Last week I started sending out again. It only took THREE days to receive my first success, Gary Peters! Gary has always been a great mail signer, and he did not disappoint! I normally send no more than 2-3 cards, but I sent 4 in this case. Thanks Gary!
