Five as a member of the Yankees and two with the Cardinals. Additionally, I slip all autographed photos inside sturdy photo-protective sleeves. In most cases, using Jack Smalling's baseball address lists and other assorted address lists, I wrote to both active and retired baseball players, sending them letters, requests for signatures, and self-addressed-stamped envelopes. This is how I obtained thousands of autographs.
I stand by every item I sell. All the old time autograph dealers know me and the professional authenticators will vouch for my reputation as well.I do this on a part time basis, so sometimes emails take a day. PLEASE NOTE: Most items come with certificates of authenticity from outside companies (JSA and PSA predominantly; they are the best).
