I don't really care for you Therion or your rude comments about my Father, or your accusations about my sister signing those cards. My father is a private man and I am tired of people like your friend harassing him for an autograph. Let me catch you or him or anyone else bothering my father for an autograph if he does not willingly want to give it. Your friend supposedly getting chased off by dad got off a lot easier then if I catch him bothering dad and that's a promise. Dad did sign those cards and dad is getting up there in age and it took multiple sittings for him to complete the signing of the cards. Dad for the majority of the time will sign with just Jim Owens, but I have also seen him sign cards as James Owens or James P Owens. As for other cards not looking like some of his previous signatures I can not confirm who those cards came from or what someone might do to try and sell a baseball card with my fathers signature for money. There are a lot of dishonest people out there and anything is possible when money is concerned. But as far as the 2016 Topps Heritage Jim Owens Cards, dad did sign these and he did use a Blue Sharpie Pen that I believe Topps provided. I hope this clears this topic up and I hope you enjoy the Topps cards he signed if you were able to get one. Best of wishes and happy collecting.

    You can question the story all you want, but Terry Puhl was there and saw the whole thing. How did you even find a thread about this that was 18 months old? Yikes.

    [MENTION=22733]Jim Owens JR[/MENTION] This is the internet. How do we know you are who you say you are? Can you prove to use that you are the son of Jim Owens. I could easily say I am the nephew of Kirby Puckett but would you believe me because of a random posting on an internet message board?

    I will say this about [MENTION=2759]Therion[/MENTION]. I've known him for the better part of 15 years and he is an expert on everything Houston Astros and researches and collects autographs of Current and Former Astro's players with a religious fervor that would envy a priest. You can see a link to his collection and research if you click the link at the bottom of his post titles "Astros A to Z Autograph Project". If he is questioning the authenticity of an autograph then something in the signature gave him good reason to question it.

    Respectfully,

    Owens seems to be a perfect pick for this type of set/issue, an obscure and difficult autograph to find to begin with that only a very select audience would truly appreciate.

    I wish that more Dodgers were represented in these sets myself, but it seems the same guys get chosen over and over. A few neat subjects have appeared, like Bruce Brubaker or Tim Harkness for example, that probably only appeal to set and team collectors though.

    I still would love to see a set of certified autographs issued by team, say 100 or 200 subjects, really digging deep and getting some obscure players that most have long forgotten or those players not yet represented or under represented with certified autographs.

    Nice of Jim Jr to ring in and give us some behind the curtains exposure to this subject. The subject of tougher autographs and why the players seem to avoid the fame really intrigues me. Some men going great lengths to avoid having their autograph on the market, thus driving the demand even higher (seems counterintuitive to what they might have intended).

    Last year at stadium an elderly man walked up to my table and we talked baseball for a few minutes . Then he said "I was rookie of the year 1962 " so I asked for this auto ,signed "Tom Tresh " roy 1962 and walked away . I watched him walk thru crowd with his cane - had to be 80+ in age . Slow night so I closed down so I could get a picture of my oldest G/S with him ---------- Not to be found !!!. I get home look up his auto - very close BUT dead for several years . So I got an auto from a ghost .
    My question why would al elderly man say and do this ?

    Why would an elderly man lie about something that could so easily been proven or discredited? Odd to hear of someone so old lying to impress someone. When I was playing travel ball, I'd lie to my crush about my tournaments so try to impress her though....lol

    He knew his baseball but lots of older guys do know well . Scouts will stop by and ask for their cards - several times I've had one not knowing who he was .
    I sell team packs of 40 or 80 different players of a team . I had a young girl and her mother looking and asked to look at a pack - no one there so I opened and was flipping for them when she said "there's daddy " instant stop for me and he was coaching that night . Gave her the card ,asked how much = FREE .
    I'm at the front gate and will comment about jerseys/ hats if not regular in area this makes nights more interesting .
    Last night at HS football game saw a Nebraska shirt - THAT'S RARE

    Do you still have the "Tresh" autograph? If so, would love to see what it looks like. I wonder how close to his actual signature it was. Tresh had a somewhat unique signature that may be a little harder to replicate.

    His 63 T was always a card I dreamed of having after I saw it in the Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading and Bubblegum Book. When I started collecting the signed copies of the all-rookie team cards, that was one of the more difficult cards to track down, aside from deceased players or high profile HOFers, because it was a SP. I still rarely see signed copies.
