    Zan,

    You have a great Greenberg collection going on. Thanks so much for taking the time to post your recent acquisitions. Kinda cool to mix the newer, shiny cards, with the vintage. Displaying your collection? Love to see it...

    Just as a side note and it's not meant to be negative, but I personally am not too crazy about the cut signature cards, unless they are well put together. I've seen some great looking cards that had the cut signatures. The one you've recently listed is nice, but i'd personally prefer to have this in it's original format.

    Mark,

    Thanks for the kind words! I'm not currently displaying my collection, it sits in some cabinets organized in some boxes at the moment..

    Speaking on cut autographs, I agree with you 100%. Just today I wrote this blog post speaking on the cut signatures that card companies have been pumping out recently, link is below.

    Let me know what you think of it

    Really like the new cards for your collection. I read the blog and agree that the companies could/should do a much better effort on their cut autos. That one with the H cut off is sad.

    Nice additions and I fully agree with your article's sentiments. That "ank" Greenberg card is a shame.

    Zan,

    I just read the blog and I couldn't agree with you more and thanks for sharing your thoughts on the matter. It seems to me that many of the early cut signatures placed into cards were well thought out, the opening fit the signature and it had an actual picture of the player. Now, you have a slot for the auto, but many times it doesn't quite fit the opening. I personally don't like the sticker autographs either; I understand the concept, but don't collect them personally.

    Some of those HG cuts are very nice that you pictured. Those, to me, are keepers. With his signature I just think it's a waste when the card companies cut a portion of his auto off, even if it's just a little bit.

    Thanks for your compliments. I enjoyed writing the piece and really diving deep into the cut signature world. I just will continue to wonder why they have regressed so much

    Not entirely sure what you mean, but yes Leaf doesn't really put anything of substance out for HG besides 1/1 cuts

    EDIT: oh, you meant LEFT for me to get lol. Trust me, there is. Especially in vintage, I'm missing a few of the much tougher issues. Modern I'm not looking to complete any print run of the player collection, but I'll pick up anything I can
