    Hey guys. Forgive me if this is out of place, but I thought this would be the best place for this.

    I get to meet The Big Hurt and was wondering what cool thing I should get signed. Not necessarily valuable, just something awesome. An iconic picture I'm not thinking of? Some sort of item? I don't know. Anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    If it were me, a 90 Leaf card would be at the top of my list. Not that they are rare, but I love that set and especially that card.

    Yeah, that would be the most iconic. I actually found something pretty cool too. In 1993, Leaf/Studio produced a 5-card Frank Thomas collection set. (Cool black and white photos). I recently discovered a large jumbo version of one of the cards. I'm wondering if these are available unsigned.

    Whatever you pick, I'd at least take it into consideration that he signs his name really really fast and if you use a silver sharpie or paint pen, be ready for it to probably not turn out. I got this photo singed a couple years ago in a silver paint pen. I decided to take the chance on it because if it turns out, it would've been sweet. My gamble didn't pay off as you can barely see the autograph. Should've gone with a lighter photo where I could've used a blue/black sharpie.

    Thanks for the insight. I was looking at this photo as one of the possibilities. Unless I can find an unsigned version of this:

    I will probably be getting a 20x24 of this one:

    (It's a cool photo and there is big, clear, light area for a signature and inscription)

    Haven't posted in a long time. Just got back my BAS order and thought I'd share. Always looking for early autos of Frank.

    How rare are the 1999 Topps Chrome Early Road to the Hall base error that has Refractor written on the back. I found one looking though my cards of Frank Thomas.

    Not especially rare, I have a couple and know several Thomas guys with copies. Cool variation though.

    Those are nice. Like the one numbered to 36. I'm slowly trying to pick up early signatures.

    Thanks! I was stoked to find a 1987 Team USA era signature with the "36". I recently found another era I'd been looking for; 1989 Sarasota White Sox, complete with "30" inscription.
