    It depends on what you are into. Some people are ink fiends (i used to be one) and can be pretty insane when it comes to finishing tough sets. (note - no offense in the least bit just an example) someone could say the same for a Belle 1/1 at a flea market but to you it has tremendous value esp. if its from a set you collect.

    Even though my focus isn't 100% ink anymore i am much more into collecting autographs (mostly rc autos) than into collecting one guy.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    He was alive for around 6 months after the set went live. There was a dealer that had a private signing with him right before Spring Training in 1987 (when Howser was still planning on a return to the Royals) and had at least 100 of the 1987 Topps card signed, so they are out there.

    Back in the mid 90's, there was a dealer who used to set up at one of the large Rhode Island shows who had a few 5K boxes full of IP/TTM autos. I grabbed a few from him (Concepcion and Garvey on 1977 Topps, a few dead players like Bo Diaz), and I distinctly remember him telling me about tracking down Byron McLaughlin in Mexico and getting an IP auto. He allegedly lives near Cannes now, so if anyone's planning a trip to France, better pack a few McLaughlins (just in case).
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    I had the only known example of a Negro Leaguer's signature and they somehow managed to authenticate it. Who knows.

    I would imagine that the Negro Leauger of which you speak and these other uber-difficult signers signed SOMETHING in their lifetimes that PSA can compare their sigs to whether they be contracts or something else.

    Interesting read on Byron McLaughlin, who was arrested for importing counterfeit trainers and money laundering.

    I think that the writer watched too many movies, but still an entertaining read. Seriously though, some guy did track McLaughlin down in Mexico (mentioned in posts above). Anybody remember the Beckett article from the 90's on a complete signed Donruss set the guy completed? It was the last page in the magazine and there were pictures of signed Diamond Kings.
