Not sure if this is the proper spot for this, but I’d like to say hello to everyone. My name is Mike and I’m relatively new to the hobby of collecting autographed baseballs. I had some as a kid, but I’ve only began collecting again a few months ago. I’m a baseball fantatic, and now father of 3 young boys, so I figured it would be something fun to share with them as they get older. I was born in 81, so guys from the 80/90’s are an era of interest. And of course, the classic players from the 50’s-70’s. My collection isn’t huge, but so far I have :

Mickey Mantle
Sandy Koufax
Nolan Ryan
Frank Thomas HOF inscription (91 innagural comiskey Park ball)
Mike Trout (2014 ASG ball)
Clayton Kershaw (2015 ASG ball)
Cal Ripken (2001 ASG ball)
Bob Gibson HOF inscription
Curt Schilling (07 WS Ball....30 bucks couldn’t pass it up)
Paul Konerko (05 WS Ball)
Pete Rose (sorry I bet on baseball inscription)
Various White Sox player balls I had as a kid

As I mentioned to Christopher in another thread, I have spent the past few days getting through about half of the Mantle/Williams/Dimaggio thread by Larry. Amazingly fascinating stuff! It really gets me even more into the hobby. I look forward to contributing and enjoying this great site!
