Stack Of Cards To Be Used Just For Autograph Hunting!!!

I don’t have many local friends that enjoy my hobby of collecting baseball cards.  Ok, actually, I only have 1.  For whatever reason, most of the people I associate with now don’t get my hobby.  Thankfully we have this community of bloggers to share our collections and experiences with.

Saturday afternoon my buddy asked if I was going to be home because he had something for me.  I had no immediate plans and told him to stop by anytime.  Over the years, we have shared ladders, tools, cameras, etc. so I had no idea what he was going to be dropping off.

Concealed in a small box that was wrapped in brown paper was this…..

I didn’t even try to count these cards!!!

His instructions were simple – these cards are to be used for the sole purpose of autograph collecting.  That’s it.

In this large stack of cards are: Hall of Famers, All-stars, MVP’s, Cy Young Award winners, Gold Glove winners, managers, Silver Slugger winners, World Series heroes, and many more from baseball players that played during or around the 1980’s.  He really put together a wide variety of players and even focused a little on the guys from my ‘Where Are They Now’ series from the blog.

So you can expect to see many more autograph requests going out as I attempt to add more and more autographs of players from my favorite era, the 1980’s, to my collection.

I’ve got to get to the grocery store to pick up some stamps!!!

  1. Looks like you’ve got a fun project ahead of you. Once you start trying to collect autograph by mail, it does make the trip to the mailbox significantly more fun. 🙂

  2. That’s neat. Envelopes! Stamps! Patience! And a good address source. Best of luck with that impressive stack of cards.

  3. That’s awesome. My son and I occasionally send out for autographs, but not very often.

    Like you, I don’t know anyone locally who collects cards. I’ve got a friend who is a big baseball fan and collects autographs (mostly on balls or 8x10s), but he’s not a huge card collector.
