This is one of my side projects I have been working on and it comes with a story.. Roy Sievers was 1949 Rookie of the year. i was doing a card show in Springfield Illinois and looked Roy up in the St Louis phone book. I called up and asked if he was Roy Sievers the baseball player and he said yes and we had a real nice 45 minute talk about old time baseball and assorted things. So fast forward to now and I have started this collection of one of every year card of his career signed (cards form 1950 to 1965 17 total mainstream cards). i just picked up a 1951 bowman today
1950 Bowman Rookie

1951 Bowman

1952 Topps

1955 Topps

1956 Topps

1957 Topps

1959 Team card (not one of the 17 but cool none the less)

1960 Topps

1961 Topps

1963 Topps

That is really cool....I sent to him a few months ago and got him to sign a 58 Topps that I bought of him at a show.

even at 85 he still signs.. im eyeballing a real nice 58 and just picked up a 59 team card thats signed so i am making slow progress. i kind of like the slabbed ones but I figure I got the toughie (rookie) already so the rest should not be too bad
