I was perusing eBay again. Searching for the last piece of my 08 Goudey puzzle. Once again, I found ricksazanka's store. This is the guy with thousands of autographed cards and 8X10's. Each item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a money back guarantee. I could not resist.
I am planning on a trip to a large card show in the near future. There are many players, current and retired, signing autographs. All of them for a fee... a hefty fee in most cases. Examples; Ernie Banks ~ $80, Andre Dawson ~ $60, Whitey Ford ~ $60. Add in the admission price and we have a hefty sum.
I got this Maz for $10 and this Niekro for $7. Both with free shipping. Seventeen bucks for 2 Hall-of-Famers is worth the gamble. I compared these auto's to other auto's from Certified items and they look legit. Who knows? They could be good forgeries. Someday, I will send them off to PSA for authentication. For now, I will consider them great additions to my Goudey autographed collection. The collection now numbers 68.
Now if I could just find that dang Jeter...
