Let's open up the mailbag and answer a few questions from readers of this blog who've had a few questions.
Dan: What would be the best way to obtain new signatures, from Tiger Woods, on a collection of his "Rookie Cards"? Think if I mailed them to him , registered, return postage guaranteed , that he might sign /authenticate them?
Sports Card Report: Unfortunately, sending cards to Tiger Woods to get autographed through the mail could be quite a frustrating experience. I have never heard of anyone obtaining a Tiger autograph through the mail. Having said that, I do have an autograph from Woods that I obtained in person at a golf tournament in Illinois several years ago.
My best advice would be to try and go see Tiger at a smaller PGA event, or even one of his charity tournaments that he puts on. Sure it might be expensive to get in, but you and your children will get to see some great golf, and be sure to follow Tiger before and after he finishes his round. During practice rounds would be the best time to get his autograph, or right when he comes off the practice putting green. Will Tiger change his autograph habits since his public relations nightmare of 2009? I am not sure, but I've seen him sign in person at golf tournaments on several occasions so it was possible in the past, and he might be more willing to sign now to get back into the good graces with fans. Typically he DOES NOT sign during the tournament - only during practice rounds, but I did get my in person autograph on a Thursday, at the PGA Championship no less.
Ken: PULLED A 2010 TOPPS BABE RUTH PEAK PERFORMANE GAME USED PANTS CARD WITH A PINSTRIPE. ANY IDEA ABOUT VALUE ??
Sports Card Report: Thankfully, I found a similar card that just ended on eBay. A Ruth Peak Performance, with a pinstripe as well, ended for $197.00.
