    Yanks21 New York Yankees Autograph collection

    Following @dano7 lead it is time to better organize my collection. I found that the best way for me to actually get this done is to share the collection here slowly. It has worked well with other parts of my collection. This gives me a chance to take a picture, post them, keep count, put the cards in brand new holders and actually put them together in one place. Feel free to comment, share a story or show off your own.

    I will start with 24 of a 25 card 1979 Wallin Diamond Greats Yankees set. I am missing just one:

    #1 Roger Maris

    #2 Joe DiMaggio

    #3 Atley Donald

    #4 Joe Beggs

    #5 Elston Howard

    #6 George Pipgras

    #7 Lefty Gomez

    #8 Joe Dugan

    #9 Johnny Kucks

    #1 0 Andy Carey

    #1 1 Don Larsen

    #1 2 Tony Kubek

    #1 3 Dr. Bobby Brown

    #1 4 Johnny Lindell

    #1 5 Russ Van Atta

    #1 6 Buddy Rosar

    #1 7 Marius Russo

    #1 8 Whitey Witt

    #1 9 Spud Chandler

    #2 0 Babe Dahlgren

    #2 1 George Selkirk

    #2 2 Joe Sewell

    #2 3 Bob Shawkey

    #2 4 Ben Chapman

    Nice! Who are you missing?
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Those Diamond Greats are fantastic. I've got a couple.
    I'd suggest that you make a spread sheet, put the player's names alphabetically and then have a column with what set its from. You might also want to put the date purchased/arrived and purchase price!

    Duffy Lewis is the last one. He passed away the same year the set was released, 1979. @dano7 thanks for the advice.

    It was just an eBay purchase. It came with a JSA letter and I thought it was a cool item. Grabbed this one on a BO sale:

    I went through your Diamond Greats to see who I didn't have autos of. I won't be able to find all as Diamond Greats, but I'm working on getting the autographs! See, help works both ways!!!

    I chased autographs as a kid, but it was always on programs, ticket stubs, random slips of paper or an occasional practice ball. I never thought to bring cards to the games and it wasn't until many years later that I started buying signed cards in quantity. It is addicting! I can't get enough of them and wanting all different types of a players card keeps it interesting. For example, some might be happy with one autograph from a player, but I may chase their entire Topps run or I may try to complete a certain team set. Ultimately, I am getting as many Dodger signatures as I can, and I prefer cards over anything else, especially vintage cards.

    I will continue to enjoy your updates.

    Can't wait to follow this thread.

    I have more than a thousand signed Yankees cards, photos and balls, mostly of '30s-'70s Yankees. I was once going for a complete run of vintage Topps Yankees signed cards of the '50s and '60s Yankees my Dad watched (except Mantle, Maris and Howard of course). Guys who used to sign through the mail 20+ years ago, like Rizzuto, Richardson, Skowron, McDougald, Turley, Larsen, Bauer, etc. Even Yogi Berra used to sign TTM for free in the '80s.

    I've always wanted to make a thread, but the thought of scanning everything intimidates me. And now that there are two Yankees autograph threads, I don't want to look like I'm competing.

    Anyway, great thread and I'll check it out every week for updates.
