Looks like Tony Womack's. Here's a ball for sale: And here are a couple cards: EDIT : used this page on Baseball-Reference to identify players with number 12, then looked through initials to find matches to TW.

I went to a baseball autograph database (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/automenu.shtml); then I wrote a script that would hide all players that didn't play during the time frame in question. (I even granted several years leeway both ways). Then I looked at the autographs of everyone (A-Z, both leagues) who had an I or J in their last name. I may have ...

I don't see anything more specific than Ben Miller's comments on bobbleheads. However, I would note that the Original Celtics were active in New York (not Boston) in the 1920s, and they were a very showman-like - even circus-like - team; basically a slightly more serious version of the Harlem Globetrotters, with a similar record (193-11-1). It seems likely ...

I found a very useful link (CardBoardConnection) that can help you with the frame. There, you have a step by step "How to Frame a Jersey": Measure your jersey to pick the right sized frame. Most jerseys will fit in either a 30" x 36" or 32" x 40" frame. Lay the jersey out in the desired position (and orientation to the frame) on the matte backing ...

This appears to be the autograph of Netherlands pitcher Shairon Martis. The Wikipedia page of the Netherlands national baseball team confirms that he uses the number 39 when playing for them. You can view a signed baseball card here (or view below) from his days playing for the Minnesota Twins in MLB, which validates the above claim particularly from the ...

Bobby Cox Brad Clontz Steve Avery ** Ron Villone (SDP) Jeff Blauser John Smoltz ** Javy Lopez - At first I thought it wasn't Lopez because it wasn't matching signatures I was finding for him online. But I've found at least three different styles for his autograph, including one similar to #7 on this ball Fred McGriff David Justice Mark Lemke ** Terry ...

This is turning out to be a very interesting question. Doing some research, I have found a few different sources claiming that sports bobbleheads got their start in the 1920s with the New York Knicks: Bobbleheads.com: History of Bobbleheads Historyofdolls.com: History of Bobblehead National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum: History of Bobbles These ...

This question really comes down to how much money you want to spend on the preservation of your collection. On the low end of the spectrum (and perfectly suitable), you could put all commons in penny sleeves and a top loader. Then put them into a square tupper ware container to protect against water and what not. The downside is where they're stored once ...

I have found several good websites to look at The first is the one stated above, and there is no need stating it again. The second one is on wikihow, and is fairly good. ( In my opinion do not wash the jersey, it may dull the signature) 2: Select a backing. Unlike with a regular picture frame, the backing that comes with your shadow box may not be all ...

Off-duty law enforcement officers working as independent contractors are assigned by Authenticators, Inc. for Major League Baseball Properties to authenticate autographs and game-used memorabilia at every Major League Baseball game. Only those items that an authenticator actually witnesses being signed or used in a game may be eligible for authentication ...

Looks like Rick Rizzs, the radio announcer for the Mariners.

I don't know about the two signatures in the 3rd photo, but the second photo has an "18" that's visible. Assuming it was a uniform number of a more recent Braves player, that narrows it down to a handful: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/ATL/uniform-numbers.shtml I think it's probably Gregor Blanco. He wore #18 with the Braves from 2008 throguh 2010....

Moisture is obviously a major factor. Keep them away from any water source, or out of a basement. Also sunlight, as that will cause the color of the cards to fade. Although if they are in a box that is not an issue. Be careful of the corners. Make sure they do not get bent, ripped, or warped in any manor, as that will seriously detract from your overall ...
