I went on another little eBay spree, this one fueled by a bevy of vintage beauties all picked up for less than a ten-spot. This gorgeous ’55 Bowman of Vern Law was one of the driving forces behind the decision. There were a couple themes running throughout this purchase: some cards to fill in my Houston Colts collection, some more fodder for some TTM requests, and of course, just some nice cards of a few guys. I have a couple signed Law cards already, but I think this big horizontal is just bound for the mail. He and fellow Pirate hurler Bob Friend are known to be two of the most consistent autograph signers.
And that’s because right after I saw it in my search results, I noticed these two from the same seller. Hard to believe it, but that Johnny Weekly is the first ’62 I have of the Houston team.
Lastly, one more Hall of Fame pitcher rounds out the group. These two Fergie’s ran me less than a buck. I’d like to pick up a Jenkins autograph, and he signs TTM for a fee, so I may send a card in to him. I’ll probably only be able to get one signed, though, and I’m leaning heavily to that 1979 on the left. Any thoughts?
