    LCS had a nice sale on 8x10s (some for $3/each) so today brought in Alfredo Figaro, Elian Herrera, Travis Ishikawa, Chris Narveson, and Rob Wooten all on 8x10's. Have another amazing find (for me anyway!) incoming.

    Only Brewers unfortunately (for you!) unless you count your recent acquisitions pictured in Brewers uniforms

    Got this item in today. Was able to find a 1973 Iowa Oaks (White Sox) Scorebook from a game against the Evansville Triplets (Brewers) with 9 signatures between the front and back covers. Notables include Denny McLain of the Oaks, Ed Rodriguez (d), and the moderately tough Ray Newman (who flat doesn't sign). But the one I needed is on the back cover: Carlos Velazquez. "Carlin" appeared in 18 games of relief between July 20th and September 29th 1973. He would pitch 4 more years in the minors before returning home to Puerto Rico. Mr. Velazquez passed away in 2000.

    So Bacon asked about "tough Sigs" earlier in the thread. Steve Hovley from what I've gathered is quite likely #1 on the Brewers list (aside from the aforementioned Dan Thomas). He is not deceased but rather wants nothing to do with baseball or signing. Why, who knows? But if he has kids maybe one of them can get a book deal out of his story. It may have something to do with Steve's portrayal in Ball Four.
    Anyhow I was able to find this nice little book by searching by former minor league teams



    41 years ago someone misspelled Hovley as "Hovely" and 4 decades later that small mistake is apparently my gain as this did not show up under a traditional search to add a Hovley autograph to my collection. There are 3 seasons worth of Red Wings autographs in the book; each season having a "checklist" of who was obtained and who was missing.
    All those with an "X" are present in the book (sometimes 3 times over)


    (1976 is also in the book)
    Somebody really put a lot of love and dedication into this thing. Each little page is neatly labeled (typed) with the player's name and in most cases the date of the signature

    And at last...


    $100 well spent IMO

    That's awesome! Cutting it up for a custom or leaving as is?
    That'd be a tough decision in my book...but then again I'm trying to do all Mets on cards

    I prefer Brewers items but don't mind neutral index cards and the like. This one will stay as it is for now as I think the book as a whole is just a cool little look back into someone's summer months from those years. I may at some point remove the Hovley and have it slabbed as each page can easily be removed through the rings

    Wow, I can't believe you are down to just one Mexican. Dessens is going to be the pitching coach of my hometown team. I am not there anymore but my brother can definitely help.
    Edgar Gonzalez Collection: - the 1/1's: 108/111 (97.3%) Have 12 1/1s out of 29
    Jorge Cantu Collection: 487 / 688 (70.78%), 58 1/1s (14 non plates)
    - the 1/1's: 429/443 (96.84%)
    Total Mexican Collection: 4,326
    Mexican autographs: 129/130 and on baseballs 118/130

    That would be sweet, I haven't had any luck trying him TTM (to AZL I think?). And I'll have to check my lists, I'm sure a few of the guys I have could be upgraded
