A massive autograph collection is up for grabs, with this hoard of (500+) baseball player signed index cards. Signature strength ranges ("7" to "10"), with the great majority averaging "8-9". The cards are vintage keepsakes that have generally toned from cream to off-white. While a good number of the signers are familiar fan favorites, many are difficult to locate journeymen or "cup of coffee" types, who had their day in the sun back in the 20th Century.
