Four more beautiful baseballs from my collection, starting with my first autographed ball ever is the Frank Robinson ball as you can see authenticated by PSA/DNA, this ball was acquired at a card show at one of the LaGuardia airport hotels around 1989-1990, he was also the first signer on my "Living 500 Homerun Hitters" poster also on display in this site.
Next is an autograph that is hard to get signed in the New York area and is authenticated by PSA/DNA, a baseball signed by Mike Schmidt.
This ball was actually signed by Mike at the Philadephia Convention Center at a charity auction in which by chance I won two chances to get autographs from Mike, he signed the ball and my poster.
The Hank Aaron ball and the Reggie Jackson ball complete this foursome, both balls acquired at autograph shows in Manhattan.
The Reggie ball acquired at the Armenia Church on 2nd Avenue in Manhattan not sure of the year but I do remember he brought his father to the show along with him, also on the stage signing that day were Ken Griffey Jr. and his dad Griffey Sr. along with Yogi Berra.
Aaron's ball was signed at the Hotel Pennsylvania also in Manhattan, he was there with Mickey Mantle, Andre Dawson and George Bell on the dais that day.
