That's a lot of guesses and again, I thank you for taking the time to play along.  Here are the two Hall of Fame autos I bought from my LCS friend.

The first Hall of Famer auto is Jim Palmer on a 1997 Donruss Signature Series Significant Signatures.  This is numbered 1962/2000 on the back.  Palmer was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990.  The Angels in Order were the only team to choose Jim Palmer.

The second Hall of Famer auto belongs to Bob Feller on a 1999 Fleer Greats of the Game card.  Zach over at Autographed Cards (how's that for good luck) was the only person to pick Bob Feller.

In my contest post I said I bought three autos.  The third one, while not a Hall of Famer, is still nice. It's a 2001 Topps Archives Reserve auto of Herb Score.  I picked up a few relic cards as well, but I'll save them for another post.

Tom and Zach, instead of randomizing, I'm going to let you both choose.  You can have the auto you guessed or some other stuff.  Just let me know and I'll get your prizes out to you!


  1. As Rangers fans, I thought we were supposed to ensure that we won each other's contests?!?!?! So much for having your back...... hahahahaha

  2. The Palmer is a beaut. Unique design for an auto...

  3. Arg how did I miss this contest? Oh I was knee deep in flooring my house on Saturday!!!

  4. Su-WEET! I never win! I would be just as happy with "other stuff" if that means Angels! Palmer (or Feller) don't really fit into my collection. Thanks so much!
