    Alas, you're going to have to wait until 2025 to make that claim. Shocker played for the Yankees from 1925-1928 during the Twenties, so the MLB Die-Cuts wouldn't have been issued until then. I...

    Very low grade example, but a next to impossible card to find. 1923 E123 Curtis Ireland Candy Co. A super scarce regional issue distributed only in St. Louis MO. Cards were issued in 5 cent candy...

    I wonder why the facsimile autograph for Mays is so different between his 1954 Bowman and 1954 Topps cards. Weird there is no "S" at the end of Mays on the Bowman, and the "W" is so different. ...

    I love the evolution of the signature section. My player's sig changed over time, so this was fun to see for another player. Great job on explaining with...
