SASES for Sox: Carlton Fisk

What can I say about Carlton Fisk that hasn’t already been said? The man is one of the best catchers of all time, and much of that was in a ChiSox uniform.

He has pretty consistently signed through the mail for a long time now. He isn’t cheap, but he charges a very fair price. Even better, the entirety of the fee goes to a very good cause, the Cancer Support Center.

I only got these two cards signed by Steve Carlton and Rich Gedman because I knew Fisk was so reliable. I love adding multi-signed cards to the collection, especially when both players are HOFers.

National Sports Card Convention – Part 2

During my time at the National I also made some purchases. I was pretty disappointed in my haul. With the show being in Chicago, I was hoping there would be more Sox autographs and memorabilia. I probably missed some stuff, but what I did see was pretty underwhelming. In any case, here is my haul.

     

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

           

     

     

Last but certainly not least, I got one more autograph while I was in town. I won’t go into the details, but I met up with Carlos May to get this 16×20 signed. I’m terrified to send it through the mail, so I am extremely grateful to Carlos for agreeing to meet with me to sign it. Now I just need to figure out how to get Bill Melton without the photo being damaged in the mail.
