I bought this over 40 years ago. Just wondering if it has any value to be worth authenticating. The signatures are mostly cut from envelopes. I only recognize a couple.
The Johnny Mize in the upper left corner is a Hall of Famer. I also recognize the names Jim Turner, "Prince" Hal Schumacher, and "Dutch" Leonard. I can't answer your question - I do know that Mize and Turner were willing signers - I wrote to them a long time ago and got them to autograph index cards.
not worth the expense IMO
I dont recognize most of the names but unless there is a rare signature then there is nothing to authenticate.
Looks like the remnants of someone's Thru The Mail autograph collecting from the 1980s or so. They probably got some signed cards (index or baseball) in those envelopes.
Funny that there is no Bobby Doerr autograph. He was easy to get TTM, was a HOFer, and was the last surviving player from the 1930s.
Unfortunately, the presentation of the autographs on that piece is poor. Even if they were authenticated would they have much value? (I'm asking because I don't know.)
You're probably right. I have no idea. I've just had it for so long. I don't imagine there can be much of a market. The word "stars" is used loosely
Here's the list of the names. Some of them didn't have MLB debuts until the 1940s.
I have a lot of time on my hands these days :-)
Bill Moeller Jr
Hal Trotsky (Sr)
(Irving) Jack Burns
Emil Dutch Leonard
Nice work @MooseDog ! Hopefully the OP checks back in to see it, but it's been 3+ weeks since they last logged in here
Thanks, @MooseDog. That was a lot of work!
