Did PCGS have her sign all 750,000 halfs? She has the worst signature ever outside out the medical field.

    No.
    Watch the population report for total signed. Each signed label will have it's own line in the report.

    I was meaning to be sarcastic. I know she didn't sign all 750k.

  • Just so I'm clear, the labels with her signature were actually signed by her? Not an "authorized facsimile"?

    That sig is precisely why I still pay bills via old skool checks - to keep my non-painting signature skills up. That is horrible, she must use online billpay.

    Yes that is a real signature. NGC has the facsimile ones. PCGS will soon have ones with real signatures from baseball players.

    Expect these to be very expensive.

    I may see if PCGS would holder a signed coin as such if I have her sign one at the LB show.

    Nah, she just had to have signed her name a LOT.

    Back in high school, I got a part time job in a camera store, working in shipping and receiving. The owner had about a dozen shops through the city and suburbs, and all merchandise came though this place before being redistributed to the satellite stores. So I ended up signing my name about 75-100 times per day.

    In a matter of two years, my sig went from nice and cursively readable to a scrawl that you could put on paper really fast. It's still like that today. It was actually a problem when I went to close out a bank account when I was in college. I signed the card, and they compared the two, and said they didn't match. I had to ask them to let me try again. Thank goodness they had photo-id's by that time. image

    Will one in ten labels come in silver foil and one in a hundred come in gold foil? Maybe they could do one of those prismatic labels. Maybe they could include a stick of gum with every order, and put some wax on the last slab in the box they send you!

    Okay, sorry. I'll stop now.

    I suspect fans of those individual players are the intended audience, with crossover from the baseball autograph collectors. There are a great many fakes out there, so I suppose PCGS is not only authenticating the coin, but the signature as well. And I guess you'll have to modify the phrase to "Buy the coin and not the label unless it's autographed by a Baseball Hall of Famer..."

    A very popular commemorative with the slab signed by the artist will be a hot item as long as the signatures are the real thing.

    Signing as much as I did on a few real estate transactions has led me to people that judge how much people sign by how legible their signature is.

    My father used to autograph a few pages per day and his signature was letter-for-letter perfectly legible each and every time.

    He had a stroke on the writing where I found it easier to try to copy my mother's less legible, but still legible, signature.


    And for people providing real autographs, I've always thought it a security feature that they sign one way for autographs and another for personal and formal use. Perhaps the signatory scrawled for a reason.

    I wouldn't pay extra for that haphazard, lazy, squiggly line. image It looks like she initialed rather than signed it!

    Whoa. I just saw a picture of Cassie on a Long Beach Information email and she'll be signing autographs at the Long Beach Show in June.

    I might just drive down there, buy a HOF coin, and see if she'll autograph the slab!

    All, of course, because I am a pig and she's a babe!

    All these autographs are beginning of the end for modern commems!!! It truly is the "baseballcardization" of coins.

    However, with choice classic US coins increasingly out of the price range for many collectors this may be the wave of the future.

    I don't think you have seen the asking price of these coins!!! 5k+ asking prices for a autographed Ripken or Frank Thomas insert on a PCGS grades Gold commems. A $1500 coin and a $100 player autograph= 5k asking price? You can buy a pretty rare, high grade classic commem for that kind of $$. eBay 5k commem
  • Only problem with the idea of her signing coins is. . . will the mint have released any more coins by then!?!?

    Ya, can kinda see the Elvira thing.

    I coined the term baseballcardization in 2009 (or earlier). It referred to the proliferation of labeling and packaging options, akin to baseball cards in the late 1980's, when it became increasingly difficult to keep up with all of the options.

    I think that we finally have convergence of baseballcardization with coins now that we have the HOF players autographing slab tags. The shark has been officially jumped, IMO.

    I can see the cross over interest here where a collector or non-coin collector would want to have a Cal Ripken Jr. signed insert for the coin which he/she may choose to acquire.

    To me the First Strike, blah blah crap is baseballcardization as the term was originally intended. Purely hyped up and manufactured rarity which has no crossover appeal nor intrinsic value to the collector.

    Considering that it takes a fair amount of success to partake in this hobby, and success in turns typically brings around the opposite sex. I am always amazed how my fellow hobbyist get spun up by avg/just about any females. Maybe it is the nerd effect image

    If you check the PCGS population reports, there were a large number of HOF silver proof (1,700+) and uncirculated (2,000+)silver dollars that were graded PCGS First Strike with the Cass McFarland signature.

    These may have been done for the Long Beach Expo. If so, you might be able to buy the autographed silver dollar coin at the show and also get a real autograph from Cassie. image

    That might be worth the price.image

    I don't think this HOF coin itself is the baseballcardization, just the slab signatures, labels are. The market can do whatever it wants with the graded coins. I think the baseballcardization will occur when we get an Elvis, Star Wars or some other pop culture coin from the U.S. Mint. When that happens, it will cause irrepairable damage to their reputation. It hasn't happened yet and I hope it will not ever happen.
