Default Autograph collection acquired, opinions/thoughts welcome..

I know there might be different opinions here but I am looking for constructive thoughts on authenticity regarding some of these items. I'm not into too deep but here is what I acquired today...authenticity thoughts please, thank you!



This ^^^^ is a cool triple ball that I hope checks out..




^^^these are all stamped with a WS logo and numbered 54


I've seen other bats online in this print run so I think I'm good there...

Also found a few packs of these (12)



And a Sealed Tiffany set and an open traded set


Also, what is this? A reprint star set or what??

On that Murray auto zoom in. Looks like the D in Eddie and the last R in Murray look like they were traced over in areas. Maybe I'm wrong....

Pete rose looks good. I don't know but that McGwire doesn't look right. The Hank Aaron is questionable too. I have a ball of his, and almost all autos I've seen oh his the lower part of the first A always dipped below the second A. Maybe he signs differently these days.

That Ripken bat looks sweet. You know it's early as he signed a more full signature

Nice find. The NBA Star set doesn't look like a reprint to me. Is Jordan's first year card in that set?

The Star set is 100% a reprint set. Not one of the original issues, sorry.

How do you tell if they are reprints? What years did Topps make the Tiffany cards? Did you open the Skybox cards? I loved the scouting reports on the back of the cards.

Yes, the Star set is defiantly a reprint set. I wasn't sure what year the reprint set was made, because I know alot were made...

That McGwire is no good for sure. I really dont like the Rose and Koufax either but am not 100% sure.

The thing for me is typically a place is selling legit stuff or not good stuff. Not a mixture of both.

The Mgwire is so bad I dont know how I could trust anything else.

If you are picking them up Id make sure that they will offer you your money back should they not pass TPA

I hope everything checks out for you TC. There's a ton of good looking stuff there.

I've had no trouble with any of my Stacks of Plague autographs when crossing over to PSA. That Koufax has a SOP COA so we will see when I send it off...

Not for the time period that Aaron would have been signed during. Palmeiro joined the 3K hit/500 HR club in 2005, so that series of balls would have been signed before there was a 4th member.

Hank's signature didn't start losing letters until several years after that.
