Baker's book is the definitive work in the growing baseball autograph hobby.It's too bad his publisher has not commissioned an update. The book is nearly ten years old and as such it's now about 25 players short and the autograph values are now just wishful thinking. Babe Ruth signatures for $495 -- I'll take a dozen!Regardless of its age spots, if you are considering entering the hazardous world of baseball autograph collecting this book will be your core reference.
Mr Baker has written the best book on baseball autographs. The book is profusely illustrated with examples of hall of fame and famous baseball players' signatures. The author is especially sensitive to aging characteristics and changes in style.
This is the best book of its kind with many samples. Very knowledgable about all aspects of the subject, especially aging characteristics of signers. Would definitely purchase the next edition when it comes out.
The book contains examples of most Hall of Fame baseball players autographs. As much as has been made about fraud in the hobby, it is an extremely helpful tool to research and compare before purchasing or trading for a signature!
This book tells you everything you need to know on autographs. A must buy
