Default Not for Resale

If you're not getting a signature for resale purposes, does it matter all that much if the corner of a baseball card being signed is bent? I seem to recall a story about Tug McGraw (?) who would sign cards but would crease the upper corner, to make it "un-resale-able." I'd be happy, as an adult, to bend the corners of my cards if I could get my favorites to sign cards of theirs, since I have no intention of selling, just displaying for my own enjoyment.

Sounds about right.

I vaguely recall Mantle being at a show on Long Island the year before he passed and I think it was around $150 base fee.

Seemed insanely high at the time given most other players were $20 and under. And, if you spent your $150 on a signed 8x10, you would barely get that back today.

Women do much better! We were at Saints/Colts Super Bowl back in 2010, lucky enough to sit in Legends box where my wife was able to get every player she asked to sign a football where I eventually gave up and just pointed people out for her.. She even had it passed around the next box which belonged to the Dolphins... Great fun!

There's no real story to share, just that as an in person collector in the 80s, he and the other players I mentioned consistently denied every time I would see them.

As I recall, he was part of that Philadelphia contingent that was very tough. He did mellow in person after he retired. I recall getting him in person in a copy of Basketball's Best (similar to "Who's Who in Baseball") and he was fine.

But I also got a lot of autos from nice guys there over the years. I got Yoan Moncada at batting practice right after the Red Sox paid $30 million for him. He didn't love signing, but accommodated me. Brendan Rodgers was a nice kid, too.
