Anyone got any cool autographs?

Postby Porehussla12 » Sat Aug 26, 2006 6:08 pm

My father is a huge Islanders, Giants, and Mets fan, so I have rooms full of stuff.

Islanders- Mike Bossy autographed jersey, Trottier stick, Trent Hunter rookie card signed, Rick DiPietro Mask signed, photo with Alexei Yashin signed, and a few others.

Giants- Carl Banks signed Ball, Rodney Hampton signed game ball, Bill Parcells autograph on a napkin(interesting story), Ron Dayne signed Rookie card, and quite a few others.

Mets- 1973 signed Willie Mays card, Ray Knight autograph batting helmet, Ron Darling signed hat, quite a few others.

All I've ever gotten was a picture with Heilman and Bell, Carmello Anthony(while he was at Syracuse), and a ball signed by Julio Franco.

I've got a ton of Chicago Bulls (Jordan) autos. I only have three baseball player autographs.
I have a ball signed by McGwire and Canseco I got from before a game at old Comisky.
I have a 8x10 black and white photo of Greg Maddux signed by him during his second season with the Cubs.
And my prized baseball auto is a ball signed by Andre Dawson and Ryno.

I have a Cal Ripken Jr. ball, an entire orioles team signed ball from the Muissiana, Anderson, Ripken years, and another one that look pretty old that I have no idea who the signitures are of.

I was at a marlins game when they came to town when Hanley was just called up and I spotted/knew who he was. At the time there was a crowd of about 50 around Miggy and i spotted Hanley so I called out to him and he looked at me came over a signed a ball for me. Another kid got an auto from him and asked who was that? I told him to wait a few years :-b. I got the ball in a case in my room right now ;-D

I also have a 3000 hit club ball signed by- Mays, Aaron, Rose, Musial, Brock and a few others that were still alive when the ball was signed

My dad has a duffle-bag filled with autographed balls. He has a ton of Yankees and Dodgers from the early 90s when we used to go down to Spring Training in FLA. I believe he has Mattingly several times, Strawberry, Jeter (when he was just a prospect), Reggie Jackson, Yogi Berra, Jim Palmer, tons of others. These were all personally signed, not purchased.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe he also has DiMaggio and Mantle on the same ball. Pretty awesome. 8-o

my dad goes to cooperstown every year with some old friends for the induction ceremony and from all of those trips he has hundreds of signed balls. some off the top of my head i always thought were cool... whitey ford, stan musial, mickey mantle, willie mays and mcovey on the same ball, rollie fingers, dennis eckersley..and a lot more.

i have a pretty decent collection of autographed baseball cards..some of my favorites include ken griffey jr., alex rodriguez autographed jersey card # 3of5
