Well I went all out with a paid signing and got Percy Snow, who is a total no show in the TTM market. Many of these were set needs, and Percy had quite a nice selection of cards during his short playing career.
The promoter happened to be a member of our Facebook TTM group and after promoting and helping some other members nab a few of Percy’s autographs, I went ahead and bought a few more as at the time like many people working from home during the pandemic, I was flush with the extra money.
I really liked the Pro Set 1990 Lombardi Award Winner card. The gold frame above the green, coupled with solid, clean photography. All the other cards are amazingly all set needs, as these all exploded for me during the pandemic.
