A Card That I Had No Intention Of Acquiring...

Going to the National was extremely overwhelming, just like last year. You walk in, and you just see tables, and tables, and tables, and endless tables of sports cards and memorabilia, and everything you could possibly imagine that has to do with sports. As many of you know, I love to collect Hall Of Fame autographs, whether it's on a card, a baseball, a postcard, a soccer ball, anything! Okay, maybe not a soccer ball, but you get the point. I found one table that had a huge variety of Hall Of Fame autographs, including many cut signatures of Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, and Mickey Mantle. I don't remember what the Mantle was from, but it was too expensive for me, and the DiMaggio was also a bit much considering his autograph is so, "common." The Ted Williams was priced reasonably, but I had to check if he would go any lower, so I made an offer, and he ended up accepting it! Here's the card:

Yep, this won't be going anywhere, unless I can find another Williams autograph on a ball, but that would be much more expensive... For now, I'm completely happy with this Ted Williams autograph! Hopefully I'll be able to add a DiMaggio and Mantle autograph at next year's National! This is definitely my favorite item that got at The National.
Thank you for reading! 


  1. Beautiful auto! He's near the top of my wantlist at the moment.
