Today I'm going to take a break from cards to show off my personal autograph and memorabilia collection. Though I might have missed something here and there, this is a look at my collection of in-person autographs and game-used memorabilia that I've piled up through the years.
previous Feller post that I got to meet the guy a few times (as you'll be reminded of shortly) and one item I got signed was this sharp official MLB ball. Does this guy have a great autograph or what?
Sandy Koufax/Tommy Lasorda/Walter Alston autographed baseball: These two pictures show off one of the cornerstones of my collection. My uncle had a friend who was a spring training catcher for the Dodgers way, way back, and he got this ball signed, which eventually found its way to me. I don't remember how old I was before I figured out it was actually autographed, and by three Dodgers legends, no less. It's yellowed from being old and left out (I don't think my mom was aware of its value either) but still great. The first picture shows Koufax (middle) and Lasorda (top) while the second includes Alston's sig on the back. A very cool ball to have considering Alston died a long time ago, Lasorda's getting up there and Koufax is fairly reclusive.
Not pictured: Detroit Tigers bat day giveaway bat signed by Gabe Kapler and Matt Anderson, which I'll get added eventually.
So that's it for now. Next up I may scan the successes from my though-the-mail attempts years ago, which should also be a fun project/post. And now a question for you readers: what's your favorite non-card collection item?
