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!
I got a very good price on this already slabbed Al Lopez 1951 Bowman card. Beckett lists this as his managerial rookie card, and since he was a manager for the Sox, and is in the HOF for his work as a manager, I’ve decided that it counts. It has terrible centering, and there is some tape on the card, but the signature looks great.
I’ve been looking for a reasonably priced Roberto Alomar signed baseball with HOF inscription ever since he was inducted last year. I finally found one being sold on eBay auction style, and got it for a pretty good price.
