Collection of 2,563 3x5-inch cards, each individually signed by a former professional baseball player, including thirteen Hall of Famers. This collection was a labor of love by our consignor, who went to the trouble of producing special cards for each player to sign. Not only does each card have the player's name printed above a signing box, but the card also includes the respective player's team name and logo as well. For players who played on more than one team during their career, our consignor included the logo and name of each respective team on the card (those cards are denoted as "Multi-Team" in our listing. The number of signatures for each player (if more than one) is noted in parentheses. The signatures, penned in a variety of inks, average "9," while the cards are in Near Mint condition overall. The thirteen Hall of Famers represented here are Bunning, Doerr (4), Irvin (3), LaRussa (2), Lasorda (1), and J. Torre (2). Total: 2,563 signed cards. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA.
