That could be possible. I don't recall hearing about it, but I may have missed it. Still, his own company, and yet so few autographs. Hell, he signed 2000 for UD heroes. Maybe that explains it. UD likely paid him fat stacks and he didn't have anyone to pay him for his own set. However, think how popular that set could have been with an attainable Ted Williams auto lurking just a few packs/boxes away!
He signed 406 copies of the 1993 card. Beckett lists the 1994 Auto /54 but TCDB doesn't. I'll try to remember to dig out a 1994 box this weekend and see if it's listed in the pack odds.

1987 Topps because its the set the got me in collecting. Another is 2009 OPC baseball. It was cheap no frills, just cards set. Took me 6 years complete it. I felt like an island because when I was looking for trades no one bother with the set.

I started building Topps baseball sets around 1995. I had 25 different sets I was working on. I'm still working on 20 different sets. :eek:

I started working on that OPC set when it came out (got a GU in my first blaster, and those were very hard to find), and I'm still maybe 25 cards short. A few years ago, I was at a show where I found someone selling packs for a quarter a pop. I grabbed them all (a few dozen), and didn't need a single card. There's a few inserts that I have never even seen pictures of as well, such a tough time with a crap set.

The first set I put together as a kid, was the 1961 Topps set at age 9. Got rid of it eventually, but re-did it. My current best set is the 1951 Bowman set.
