I recently took part in another Frank Thomas private signing. I had only planned on sending in 3 cards, but then I heard a rumor that he might be raising his price soon. So I sent in as many as I could afford, which ended up being 9. They all turned out great. The 1992 Donruss Elite is definitely one of my top 5 favorite signed Thomas cards.
I recently sent in a couple of cards for MAB’s private signing with Roberto Alomar. I’m pleased with how the rookie turned out, but not happy at all with the Donruss Champions card. If there has ever been a set with an obvious place to sign, it’s this set. I’ve never felt the need to label these cards, as it’s just so obvious. And yet, Alomar signed this card in a horrible spot. I guess it’s my fault, but I’m still not very happy. I’ll have to get another one signed in the future.
I got a good price on a PSA authenticated Luke Appling Perez-Steele postcard. I don’t have nearly enough Appling items in my collection, so I jumped on it!
I’ve only just started my HOF baseball project, but it will be difficult to top this. I may not like Ken Griffey Jr, but even I can’t deny he was an amazing player. He is also one of those players that has a certain aura about him, the kind that epitomizes the Hall of Fame.

I recently decided to start collection Hall of Fame baseballs signed by White Sox Hall of Famers under the HOF logo. When possible, I’d like a HOF inscription as well. Here are the first four balls in my new collection.
Another one of the greatest players in Sox history, and one of the five or so best catchers in MLB history.
Tom Orr recently held a reasonably priced signing with Frank Thomas, and I sent in 3 cards. I received the cards last week.
I’ve decided to send in 2-3 cards for every Thomas signing that has an affordable fee for cards. Funds permitting, of course.
I’ve been wanting these in my collection for a long time, and finally have them! These are from the 1980 Glen Falls White Sox TCMA sets. Thanks to Isaias Franco for another great signing!
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?
One of my favorite autograph sets of 2012 was Topps Tribute. 2013 appears to be more of the same. These are some gorgeous on-card autographs. I have picked up one variation of each White Sox player included in this year’s set. Enjoy!
