    Enormous Baseball Signed Postcard Collection (900+). This vast and varied archive from a fervent New England autograph collector uses George Burke photographic imagery on postcards as the medium for autographs from the biggest stars of the 1920's-50's. The cards remain in spectacular EX to NRMT or better condition, with their ink or sharpie autographs averaging 9+/10. Far too many to itemize, but the highlights include: Alston, Appling, Averill, Berra, Boudreau, Chandler, Carey, Conlon, Cronin, Coveleski, Joe DiMaggio, Dickey, Doerr, Durocher, Feller, Ferrell, Gehringer, Greenberg, Gomez, Grimes, Herman, Hoyt, Hubbell, Travis Jackson, Kell, Kelly, Lemon, Lopez, Lyons, Mize, Musial, Newhouser, Reese, Rizzuto, Ruffing, Sewell, Slaughter, Snider, Spahn, Terry, Lloyd Waner, and Ted Williams. Almost all of these are offered in some quantity, often significant quantity, and typically featuring different several images. For example, there are eight Greenberg signed cards, nine DiMaggios and four Williams. Over 195 Hall of Fame autographs in all! There are some fine names among those not enshrined at Cooperstown too, among them Mickey Owen, Preacher Roe, Allie Reynolds, Mickey Vernon, Ed Lopat, Johnny Vander Meer, George Pipgras, Luke Sewell and countless more. With our limited time, it's very possible that we missed some great "sleepers" in these massive stacks of postcards. A tiny percentage, and almost none of the Hall of Famers, have personalized their signatures to "Loring," but again this figure is negligible. Autograph collectors and eBay enthusiasts will certainly want to take notice of this gigantic opportunity. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
