I'm hoping that you are reading this blog entry because you are interested in my BASEballs. If that wasn't the reason you clicked on this... wow. Scary.
Anyway, I knocked another Hall of Famer off my autographed baseball want list. Larry over at http://sewingmachineguy.blogspot.com/ sent me this Al Kaline ball in trade for a Sweet Spot WIllie Horton Glove Auto. Pretty fair deal to me. I think the next card show that comes around I will have it authenticated.
Now, I had a Kaline ball before, well I had it for like a day, but it wasn't intended for me at all. I bought it for my buddy and it has a prominent place on his shelf. Now I have my own Kaline!
I'm thinking my next HOF auto ball is going to be purchased online. I found a great place that has scores of autoed baseballs: http://www.halloffamememorabilia.com/ I've been eyeing Warren Spahn and Ernie Harwell, among others.
