    1982 & 1983 Diamond Classics Collection (70) with 38 Signed Cards! Tracking down our baseball heroes to get a treasured autograph became very popular in the mid-1970's. It became such a pastime that sets of cards were being produced for the sole reason to acquire an autograph. In 1982 and 1983 Big League Collectibles produce four different series that became a fan favorite medium. Signatures are all on the fronts and are a mix of marker and ballpoint pen.
