Brian Flam (www.theautographcard.com) brings new hope to the TTM hobby. He pointed out one attractive subset of baseball history that many autograph buffs have overlooked: the Ford Frick winners, as honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Although many early pioneers have died, Brian noted that he’s had good success through the years writing to broadcasters in care of their teams.
I agree. I treasure the bonus photo I received years ago from Jack Buck. He added “HOF 1987” and “Go Crazy Folks.”
Who’ll be the next names on the list? Get them early.
It comes with a good letter. For in-person autographing, fast and hectic becomes the norm. Good luck hearing anything more than a “here” or “thanks” from the signer.

The pair behind the idea do more than sell. They collect. They use it all the time. Here’s proof:

You’ve gotta love an answer like that.
I checked in with some of my favorite guys in the hobby at The Autograph Card.
Co-creator Brian Flam, fresh off an appearance at the National Sports Collectors Convention (offering a show-only card set!) said he was busy when I checked in for an update on some of the great hobby products he’s offering. Check back in October.
Too busy counting his huge profits?
Nope. He’s using what he makes.
Brian was getting ready for a trip to ‘graph the Arizona Fall League. Smart move, getting tomorrow’s stars today. You know what he’ll be getting autographed when he’s there.
Brian and partner Russell Miles believe in what they make. They’re still collectors.
Check out their Facebook page or website. There’s no reason to struggle with blank index cards when you have artful alternatives like The Autograph Card.
