    Looking for an Ian Thomas Signature (Braves/Dodgers Pitcher 2009-16). Can you help?

    Looking for a signature/autograph from an obscure pitcher. He played with the Braves and Dodgers. There are some minor league cards, but because he shares a name with a football player who dominates searches, finding this Ian Thomas has proven to be tedious. I know that a lot of guys do spring training autographs each year and perhaps someone has this guy sitting in a box. I know lesser known players, especially those that didn't make an impact or play long, often don't get any love when selling, so many people wouldn't even bother to try. My first preference would be a minor league card (don't know if he had any MLB cards), especially a Dodgers farm team, or another flat type item, but will consider anything.

    I find Ian Thomas the baseball player interesting in that he doesn't get his own main player section on beckett like Ian Thomas football so if you search for Ian Thomas on beckett you have to sort through the Ian Thomas football listings to find the few minor league cards that Ian Thomas baseball has.

    It doesn't appear Ian Thomas baseball has any certified autos - the only baseball certified autos I could find in a quick scan of the search results are for duals featuring Ian Kinsler and players with "thomas" in their name.

    I will part with it - problem is reading it on roster . I do have some records of who signed other items that i will check out . Give you idea = i have 800,000 cards , 200 plus bats , 300 plus signed baseballs , 100 signed mini helmets = these i have some record of who . Next problem i have six years of newer on this side of them . LUCKY i'm retired and can work on this with other request i get . Pitchers are NOT easy to get on game day - one of local i only got ONE day during season and my SON worked with him .

    This is one signature online I have found that is advertised as his. Not sure if this is typical or a "ball" signature only. It might help for reference.Click image for larger version.

    I can check with the local shop in Broken Arrow. They usually have some IP auto stuff of guys who came through either Tulsa or OKC.
