Autograph hounds round the bases and head for home with this exciting collection of signature cuts, index cards and more. Loaded with autographs of players who manned MLB diamonds from the 1900s-1960s, this vintage bundle boasts a good number of big-name Hall of Famers and tough examples of long gone legends. Headed by a Detroit Tigers reunion ball, this selection consists mainly of cuts adhered to index cards, though there are also some signed photos adhered to index cards and a few index cards are signed directly. Although many of the cards are slightly to moderately wavy, the signatures remain distinct and pleasing with an overall potency average of ("8-9"), excluding the multi-signed Tigers ball.
