Is Your Glass Half Full? A Question For All Baseball TTM Autograph Collectors

What's right about baseball autograph collecting right now?

I ask myself this every day. Not just about the hobby, but about all walks of life. We know the problems. How can we celebrate what's good in the interim?

I began my survey with Rich Hanson, one of the most ambitious autograph collectors I've ever known.

He said:

 About the only thing good about baseball card autograph collecting is the accessability of the players at the minor league level. In-person autographing is still fun. By mail is getting tougher, and the EBayers who sell signatures have lent a foul stench to the hobby. But I'm sure you've heard my complaints on that score already.

Readers, how would you answer?

  1. It's easier to locate cards for obscure players than it used to be, and the internet makes it easier for ttm collectors to research players.
