Signature Sundays - Twin Fellers

It seems the weekends are the only time I can manage to squeeze in a post lately...time for this week's installment of Signature Sundays.  Today I've got two autographs for you, both from the 2005 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes set and both featuring Hall-of-Famer Bob Feller.

First up is the Autographed Red parallel of card #3.  All of these red autos are serial numbered to 49 copies.  I've gone on numerous times about why I love these Baseball Heroes autos so much, so I'll spare you the details here.  This particular card pays tribute to Feller's amazing 1940 season, which saw him lead the American League in wins, ERA, and strikeouts.  He also threw a no-hitter on Opening Day of that 1940 season.


The other card I picked up is also a red auto, of the fifth and final Feller on the checklist, his header card.  I have to say that I like the standard cards better than the painted headers, but when I had to chance to land one of each from the same seller I had to bite.

These are my fifth and sixth autographed cards from the 2005 Heroes set, and my second and third Feller autos overall.  I actually picked these up well over a year ago now, so it's high time they saw the light of day and received a proper post.  I've been on the lookout for the other three Feller red autos ever since, but so far have yet to see any turn up.  Maybe someday...

Enjoy your NFL football everyone, and go Patriots!  Hopefully I'll be back before next weekend...

I may not be a baseball card collector, but I do love me some baseball and those are some pretty nice Feller autos. I have a soft spot for those Heroes autos!
