Been a while since I've posted an update to my autographed baseball collection. I'm still focusing mainly on Hall of Famers, but I'm starting to get into the expensive/rare autographs so I'm also gaining more lesser known stars/future hof'ers. Let's get to it...

My last post displayed my budding collection of HOF signed baseballs. That was back in August, and I've added plenty more since then, so I'm updating the list as I've gone from 7 items to 46 (47 autos). I've got more on the way, but where I stand right now my collection includes...
Willie Stargell, Don Larsen, Phil Niekro, Bob Doerr, Bob Gibson, Frank Robinson, George Kell, Brooks Robinson, Orlando Cepeda, Robin Roberts, Ernie Banks, Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, Bob Feller, Fergie Jenkins, Luis Aparicio, Juan Marichal, Dennis Eckersley, Jim Bunning, Nolan Ryan, Goose Gossage, Rickey Henderson, Barry Bonds, Mike Schmidt, Stan Musial & Don Sutton, Derek Jeter, Rod Carew, Cal Ripken Jr, Al Kaline, George Brett, Tony Gwynn, Pete Rose, Wade Boggs, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Dave Winfield, Craig Biggio, Rafael Palmeiro, Eddie Murray, Carl Yastrezemski, Paul Molitor, Lou Brock, Robin Yount, Monte Irvin, Albert Pujols, and Ichiro.
Also, rather than busting cards I'm collecting signed baseballs, so I guess don't expect any cool posts of busted boxes for a while, there's tons of baseballs I've still got my eyes on, and may post the progress here from time to time.
