Default Tom Seaver

Does anyone know if Tom Seaver still does Autograph signings? I have been searching and the general consensus is he doesn't sign.

I believe his health has prohibited him from doing so. He was an exclusive with MAB so you may want to reach out to them,

I have also heard it was a health issue. He hasn’t done a signing in probably 8 years and my guess is that you never see him do another one.

This is a little off topic, but when I was growing up the Yankees were on channel 11 and the Mets on channel 9.

And even though I grew-up a Yankees fan, I still loved watching the Mets (after all, it was baseball) and I really enjoyed watching Tom Seaver pitch and then watching him on Kiner's Korner.

I hope he's doing well.

Topps issued certified autograph cards of him in 2018, so he is signing, at least for them.

I have an item I want to get signed by him, and have been watching for any autograph signing appearance from him for several years now, and have not seen one announced. The last card show appearance he made, if I remember correctly, was not too long before he came down with some serious health issue. I don't know how he's fairing now, but am still on the lookout for him.

Lyme disease is what I heard as well. He used to be a guest at just about every MAB show and then <*poof*> nothing. Glad to hear he is doing well. Hopefully he will start making appearances again. I believe he has his own vineyard, so that might be taking up a bunch of his time. Not the nicest guy on the planet, but I could use him on an item or two.

He appeared at the "50 Years of Amazin' Baseball" autograph show at Citi Field in January 2012. Here's a photo I took of him signing a bat for a fan.


(Photo taken January 22, 2012. © Gary Dunaier. Link to upload on Flickr.com: here.)

Seaver's autograph prices that day were $49 for flat items and baseballs, $59 for caps and equipment, and $69 for bats and jerseys. The first inscription was $5, additional inscriptions $20 (except for "The Franchise" or "Tom Terrific," $50).

I just read on nj.com that Tom has retired from public life due to a diagnosis of dementia. A sad, long journey for he and his family.
