signed baseballs

Brooks Robinson
Rollie Fingers
Dave stewart
Buck O'neil (first Colored MLB player)
John Wettland (96' WS MVP addition)

These are just some of my favorites because they are somewhat older and I am middle aged. I have alot of Texas Rangers Autographed balls.

You should get that card graded. :-°

The June 2005 issue of Beckett Baseball has that card going for $350-$600, depending on its condition. ;-D

Buy a Beckett price guide and follow the steps to get it graded. ;-D

If you only think it will be a 6 or 6.5, I'm not sure I'd go to the trouble though. :-?

I disagree. A card that old in that shape is still worth a pretty penny. A 6.5 of an old card isn't equal to a 6.5 of a new one. :-?

Personally, I'd most likely have it graded as well, but 6 ish is somewhat common for older cards. I was just thinking that it wouldn't make a drastic difference in the value of the card. If it's close to gem mint, then that affects the value in a huge way. 6 ish raises the value, but not nearly as drastically, so some people would rather not go to the trouble and just sell it as is. That's all I was trying to get across. ;-) If you're an avid collector, then absolutely, get it graded. If not, I probably wouldn't worry about it and just sell it as is.

Just went to a Noah Lowry Autograph show, and got his autograph on a new MLB baseball. I'll post a picture later on. Its nothing to make anyone drop their jaw, but hes my fav player. ;-D

Funny thing is, I was drinking this fruit smoothie the whole time I was in line and when Noah asked me how I was doing I couldn't pronounce a word becuase my lips were mouthed shut from the smoothie. I sounded like a dork. :*)

My fave that I got is a Torii Hunter game used autographed bat or my Jim Calhoun signed baseball (thats right--baseball). But I share a collection with my dad. He has 2 OJ Simpson rookie cards, a bball program signed by Cousy, Russell, and Auerbach, and tons of other autographed stuff.
