New HOF Auto Added to the Collection

I haven't spent too much time trying to track down new HOF autos for my collection but while messing around on COMC a little while back I ran across a good deal on an auto to add to my Hall of Fame Baseball collection.


This is a cut auto of HOFer Billy Herman from the 2018 Leaf History of Baseball release.  Herman started his career with the Cubs in 1931 and this cut auto seems to be off a photo he signed in a Cubbies uniform.  In 1941 he was traded to the Brooklyn Dodgers and a bit for the Boston Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates.  Herman was a 10X All-Star and ended his career with a .304 batting average and 2345 hits. He was known for his defense at second base and held a number of defensive records when he retired in 1947.

Herman was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in 1975.  His stats don't measure up greatly to other HOF second basemen however 2 of his top 3 similar batters on Baseball Reference are fellow HOFers (Joe Sewell and Red Schoendienst).

This was a nice economical addition to my collection and brings my total up to 106 different players.

  1. I don't understand why they would cut a signed photo...seems destructive to me.

  2. Autographs of 106 different HOF members is awesome! I love collecting autographs of hall of famers... and I probably have less than 50. Maybe one day I'll sift through my scans and write up a post.

  3. True story, I'm one of the people who have benefited from Dr. Ogbeifun Love Spell. Dr. Ogbeifun appeared in the middle of my life when all hope was lost. I gave up on life and thought the best way to care for my broken heart. I have several experiences with my husband who have been working with me for many years. I made up my mind to continue with my suicide before a strange spirit. Afterwards, Dr. Ogbeifun Temple, I reluctantly looked for and found testimonials and recommendations for him via his email. He answered and asked me to go away and take my life; he said that my case is solvable after consulting his Oracle. Well, here I am today thanking Dr. Ogbeifun for saving my life and bringing back my Husband. We are so happy today and happier than we have ever been. He also helped me stop my cardiac arrest problem. I am grateful for being among the people sharing this testimony. Contact him at this email ogbefunhearlingtemple@gmail.com call or add him on whatsapp +2348102574680 website
