Autograph Collection

I collected autographs as a kid. I loved meeting the players if only for a few seconds while they signed. I also requested autographs through the mail in the mid-1980’s. Spent a day at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, FL in the early 80’s and got several autographs including Sandy Koufax.

I have very few autographs left from childhood. None of them are worth anything, but I don’t collect them to make money. I collect them to collect them.

I do not actively seek autographs on stickers attached to the card. If I get one in a pack or as part of a larger trade I will keep it, but generally I find the sticker autos undesirable.
