I was bidding on an Isiah Thomas auto but someone outbid me on it. It was a nice card but I am not in a position to get in a bidding war over it. Don't worry I have a few more tricks up my sleve. Be on the lookout for another success from me real soon.

I went to the hawks game on Friday angainst Utah and got Dominique's auto. However he ran with some kids' red sharpie and since the card was mostly red on the front he signed the back of the card. The card is FS/FT if anyone is interested and I have pics. The recap is on my youtube page. Username atlcardcollector. You can also see my HOF mojo that I got off the bay.

mrveggieman, it looks like you are almost the only one posting here. haha~
Anyway, recently I picked up these. They might not be high-end in the eyes of some of you, but oh well...~

I got a couple of cut autos in this week - Al Cervi and Paul Arizin...





I got some cards to add to my Chronology collection including Bobby Wanzer, Slater Martin and Tommy Heinsohn...







I bought this Jerry West Epic auto because I saw it for a good price and he's one of my favourite players...



I also got this Jack Twyman Private Signings (and I have the Billy Cunningham card from the same set on its way, which I'm really excited about)...



The Cunningham looks like this...



Finally, I also bought this Bob Davies (the player who popularised the behind-the-back dribble) auto, which I'll probably send to PSA at some point to get authenticated...

Yeah, I heard they are tough. I wish Panini made more cards like these. I also have the following National Treasures cut autos.

George Mikan...


Andy Phillip (I was offered $155 for this card but backed out after having second thoughts)...


Paul Arizin (this is incoming from France as we speak)...

Very nice stuff. Would love to have that Phillip Cut Will. But I think I told you that already. I'll have to upload some pics of my non certified HOF autos later.

About 5 years ago I purchased some index cards off of Ebay. They are all HOFer's. I tried creating a card and sending it to Marques Haynes about 3 years ago but never got anything back. I've since bought a Certified Marques Haynes so I guess he can keep the card. I have no proof that these are legit but thought I'd show them off. Honestly I think index cards are pretty dull.
Frank Ramsey

George Yardley

Paul Arizin (have a certified of him now)

Lou Carneseca

Pete Carroll

Jody Conradt

Paul Endacott

Clifford Fagan

Cliff Hagan (have a certified of him)

Alex Hannum

Bob Houbregs (Have a certified of him)

Bailey Howell (have a certified of him)

Buddy Jeannette
\
Hank Luisetti

Slater Martin (Have a certified of him)

Got this one in person when I was in Cub Scouts at a Globetrotters Game

By the looks of it it's Sweet Lou and Curly Neal and can't tell the other one.

And my favorite one is this by Buddy Jeannette. It's a list of who he thought was great.


Let me know what you think. Hopefully everyone likes them. I'd like to be able to find certified's of all of them.

I am 100% certain that is Hank Luisetti's real autograph, and the same goes for Bailey Howell, Paul Endacott, Paul Arizin and George Yardley - I recognise those autographs instantly and they match up with others I've seen. In fact, I'd put money on all of those being legit.

The Buddy Jeannette item is great! Its great to see him giving credit to lesser-known stars such as Bob Feerick, Joe Fulks, Al Cervi, etc. However, he seems to have had trouble remembering the time periods though, as Oscar Robertson was born in 1938, so can't have been a star from 1938-45.

Thanks Will. I've often thought of making my own cut autographs using these to make them a little more attractive. I'm glad you think they look real. That makes me feel a whole lot better. I bought them in a lot from one seller.

I've also thought about making my own cut autos. I'm sure there must be a local art and crafts business that could make some incredible looking cut autos if I paid them a fair amount. I've got autographs of Joe Fulks, Bob Davies, John Wooden, Paul Endacott and Bob Kurland that I'd like to see turned into cards. I'd probably buy more index cards and do the same with them.

I'd definitely rest easy that those index cards are real. They look as legit as can be.

Never seen anyone add autos to a cert like that. Sure it has to be only one like it. Keep it slabbed and protected.

Not sure how many certified autos and cards he has. Was glad to get this one in. A lot of his autos he goes off the sticker. For 95 years old he has nice graph.

Ha Ha I was actually bidding on that same John Kundula card. Congrats. I did pick this one up, but I have to wait a while since it is shipping from overseas.

Kundula was a nice get for Leaf to have sign for them.

Someone here posted some cool Slater Martin autos. Nice seeing graphs from the old Minneapolis Lakers.

He does have a couple of on-card autos. As far as I know he has the Chronology Coaches Box/50, which I have, and also the Chronology dual with Vern/25, which I also have. Not sure if they came out with any other on-card autos since. Those Leaf cards are a real pretty simple design and I too wish they were on-card.
