I know the seller had to be upset.

I bought a magazine signed by Toni Stone (1 of 3 women in Negro Leagues), Reggie Jackson, Ernie Banks, and Jose Canseco on the cover. The description at the auction house said 5 autographs, but I only saw 4 on the cover. Those are the only names listed. Got the magazine a couple of days ago with 4 autographs. Turned to the first page and there was the 5th autograph.... Mark McGwire. Was a nice surprise.

Maybe they didn't know who it was and didn't bother to do the research. Would it have added a lot more value to the peice? Maybe not, but perhaps a bit more uncommon than the other signatures (although not familiar with Stone).

Toni Stone was 1 of 3 women in the Negro Leagues. She was the headliner on the description. Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire were the Bash brothers. I doubt McGwire will touch anything with Canseco on it after the steroid era investigations.

Looking at ebay, which in this case may not be all that useful, Toni Stone autographs appear to be quite scarce. The prices of the three I found were unsold, but all around $1500 or more. I suppose it makes this item the steal of the century:

In that case, if that is the value, I hardly think McGwire, Banks, Jackson or anyone else matters on that item at the price it might have sold for.

As for Mcgwire and Canseco together, I guess the same item signed in different spots might qualify (i doubt either would qcheck a whole book for example to make sure the other didn't sign it somewhere else), but it is hardly like a photo of both together or a ball where both signed it. The spot where he signed is actually quite bad, even for it to be used as a cut.

Makes me wonder how many, if any, of those 1994 Ted Williams Co. cards were signed. There was not a lot of time. That would be quite an item.
