December Purchases.

Britt Burns-I didn't plan on buying this but I left it on the Amazon checkout by mistake and my wife purchased it.  Nevertheless, I'm happy to get it. 

Bartolo Colon-This was an ebay purchase that seemed like a better deal than doing the private signing.  Came with a COA.
Rovin Ventura-I put a small bid on ebay thinking I would get outbid and ended up getting it for $20 delivered.



  
Jermaine Dye and Bob Lemon-I was at The Baseball Card Exchange in NW Indiana and had intentions of buying a Tommy John and Jeff Samardzija ball that I saw on their ebay page.  When I looked around, I saw these two balls for the same price I planned on spending for the other two so I purchased these two instead. 


Christmas Present-1959 White Sox


My wife has said that I am a difficult person to buy for and never act surprised.  I told her that this item would surprise me (I told her that 2.5 years ago).  Several family members got together and purchased this for me.  Although I didn't act surprised at the time, it sunk in and is a very cool piece.  

PSA full leter certified.  Has signatures from Luis Aparicio, Early Wynn, Bill Goodman, Sam Esposito Don Gutteridge, Tony Cuccinello, Al Lopez, John Cooney, Ray Berres, John Romano, Dick Donovan, Turk Lown, Bob Show, Jerry Staley, Barry Latman, Ken McBride, Al Smith, Ted Kluszewski, Jim Rivera, Earl Torgeson, Rudy Arias, Jim Landis, Earl Torgeson, Ray Moore, Joe Stanka, Jim McAnany, Billy Pierce and Bubba Phillips.

2005 Sports Illustrated White Sox World Series 11x14

Since 2014, I have been working on this 11x14 print.  As the Chicago Sports Spectacular had a bunch of 05 guys, I had to take advantage of it.  I went through consignment with Signatures on SCN.  He does a great job.

I was able to get the following added.
  1. Brian Anderson
  2. Ross Gload
  3. Dustin Hermanson
  4. Raul Casanova
  5. Tim Raines
  6. Pablo Ozuna.


I am now up to 31 signatures on this piece.
