Hall of Fame Autos - Whitey Herzog and Doug Harvey

I really like having an LCS, especially one that takes the time to get to know you and your collecting interests.  Recently the owner of one of the two LCSs in my area shot me an email letting me know he had picked up a lot of 9 Panini Coopertown Autograph cards.  He shot me the list and I identified the two from the list that I needed for my HOF Auto collection.  I was able to stop by the shop a few days later and pick up these two new cards for my collection.

Both Doug Harvey and Whitey Herzog are from the HOF Class of 2010.  I decided early on when I was looking to start a HOF collection that I would include non-players that are elected in my collection focus so these are two great additions.  The fact these are on-card auto just adds to the satisfaction I feel in getting them.  One of the great aspects of the Panini Cooperstown set is the addition of some great autos into the marketplace.  I now have a few in my set.  The lack of logos doesn't bother me much, I know many collectors don't like the cut off heads but to me it is better than the alternatives - hats with the logos airbrushed off or no unlicensed sets at all.

I set a goal at the beginning of the year to add 4 HOF Autos to my collection.  I have now added 5 with my pick up of Early Wynn and Johnnie Mize together and Paul Molitor right at the beginning of the year.  I did give a list of players I would target and only Molitor appears on the list but I am counting this as a collecting goal that is completed.  I will keep my eyes open for more autos but I am happy to have hit a goal so early in the year.

  1. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

    Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF
