Here is what treasure hunting is all about. As I said in part 1, my eye caught the handy work of renown baseball artist DICK PEREZ. These 4 x 6 Perez-Steele cards were produced as beautiful, full color portraits in 15 series between 1983 and 2001. The following cards were limited edition of 10,000 all numbered on the back of the cards.
I'll let the pictures do most of the show:
What I was able to pick out of the box was:
Two Boston Red Sox HOF : BOBBY DOERR and RICK FERRELL
Two Chicago Cub HOF : ERNIE BANKS and BILLY WILLIAMS
Two St. Louis Cardinals HOF : STAN MUSIAL and ENOS SLAUGHTER
Two HOF pitchers : ROBIN ROBERTS and WARREN SPAHN
Two HOF American Leaguers : GEORGE KELL and LOU BOUDREAU
Two fleet HOFers : RAY DANDRIDGE and LOU BROCK
Two HOF L.A. Dodgers: SANDY KOUFAX and DON DRYSDALE
A Minnesota "killer: HARMON KILLEBREW
And two of the greatest : HANK AARON and WILLIE MAYS
The signatures are all nice a readable, in blue sharpie ink.
As you can see, I ended up with 2 Ernie Bank cards, so if anyone wishes to trade or purchase, please shoot me mail.
When I looked these up in Robert Edwards Auction, I found out that 104 Hall of Famers were possible to have signed from the 15 series' produced. Having these 17 autographed is a great start.
