Million Dollar Question – ‘What Is Your Mt. Rushmore Of Baseball Signatures’
This week’s ‘Million Dollar Question’ is based on my recent acquisitions of some new Andre Dawson autographs. Those new additions to my collection are a signed Montreal Expos jersey and another signed ball for my collection.
Here are some pics:
I got some great feedback about the new items for my collection, and as always, a few comments were made about Dawson’s stunning signature. Dawson’s autograph is often regarded as one of the best in baseball – offering a clear and clean script with just enough flash to be nice but not gawdy.
Easily my favorite signature in baseball, I thought it would be fun to build a Mt. Rushmore of ‘The Best Autographs In Baseball’.
So, without further ado, here is mine:
Some great looking autographs right there, huh??
What’s nice about all of them is that they can be very easily read and identified.
But, just in case you are questioning any of them, the players I chose with the best signatures in the sport are: Andre Dawson, Steve Carlton, Johnny Bench, and Ozzie Smith.
There were a couple of guys that were on the cusp of getting etched into the mountain – guys like Reggie Jackson, Dale Murphy, and Nolan Ryan were very close. And then there were some guys that could not hold a stick of dynamite to the mountain – Ryne Sandberg and Greg Maddux– these guys offer horrible signatures and if you were to find a signed ball by one of them odds are good that you would not know it was signed by them unless you were a collector of said player.
And now it is your turn to create your Mt. Rushmore. Give me your favorite four autographs in baseball!!!
I cannot wait to read your responses!!!
