30-YOC Top Ten Lists’ – ‘Top Ten Hall Most Wanted Signed Baseballs – The Non-HOF Edition’
Last Sunday night I told you about my desire to bring some more quality autographed baseballs into my collection. And I gave you a list of my most desired Hall of Fame balls.
This week, the theme is the same, but now I am bringing you the ‘Non-HOF’ version. This one was a lot harder to build and then cut down to just ten names, but I did it.
So, before I get to that list, let me at least tell you that if I was ever to find a ‘No-Hitter’ inscribed ball from AJ Burnett, Anibal Sanchez, or Kevin Brown, I would want them for my Marlins collection. Those balls did not make the list, let’s say that they trumped the list.
Now, on to the ‘Top Ten Hall Most Wanted Signed Baseballs – The Non-HOF Edition’.
Here we go:
10 – Gary Sheffield
9 – Mike Lowell
8 – Vince Coleman
7 – Eric Davis
6 – Ivan Rodriguez
5 – Frank Thomas
4 – Chipper Jones
3 – Greg Maddux
2 – Ken Griffey Jr.
1 – John Smoltz
And there you have it. Ultimately this list could have been a lot bigger – I would also like to add signed balls to my collection of Willie McGee, Mike Greenwell, Curt Schilling, Giancarlo Stanton, Jose Fernandez, Randy Johnson, and the list goes on and on.
Hopefully I can find a few signings to participate in where I can add a few more quality autographed balls to my collection…
Do you have a list? If so, please share – I’d love to see it!!
