SIGNING RESULTS: Hall Of Fame And Cy Young Winner Jim Palmer Bat For My Collection!!!!
To say that I am excited about this is a severe understatement.
I got in on a deeply discounted private signing with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer that took place in late March. With the signing, Palmer was offering FREE Hall of Fame inscriptions, so the added savings made this a ‘must’ for me.
I went back and forth on the items I considered going after, but ultimately settled in on a baseball bat. Some collectors think that a signed bat by a pitcher is an odd choice, but for a player so accomplished I think that a bat is a solid symbol that strongly represents the game. And it also allows for a large surface area to be signed.
So, without further ado, let me show you the bat!!!
Here it is:
Don’t you just love the way that Mr. Palmer signed it for me? He has a very neat, and artsy signature. And of the Hall of Famers that I shop frequently, his autograph is certainly one of the more consistent too.
You cannot see it?
You want a better look?
You’re just pulling my leg, right?
If you want a better picture, I guess that I can offer up another one…
You asked for it!!!
Signed perfectly in a bright, Blue Sharpie marker, as you can see I got the FREE HOF inscription and also went after the ‘1973,75,76 Cy Young’ inscription as well.
The autograph and inscriptions fill the bat barrell perfectly – just enough to be full and not spill over and not be seen at one time.
This bat is a perfect addition to my small but very meaningful collection that features my other ‘Super Collections’: Andre Dawson & Fergie Jenkins!!
After bringing home 2 new Jim Palmer autographs this Spring, it may be time to add an ‘Ultimate Palmer’ page to the blog!!!
I hope another signing opportunity like this comes along from Mr. Palmer. If so, I will be ready to score even more. As a matter of fact, I have already started shopping for it…
Thanks for reading!!
