If you collect HOF baseball autographs you have to get this book. I wish it could easily be updated as time goes by and new members come in to the Hall but considering the amount of fraud in collecting, this book is a necessary aid. Fun facts too.

If you collect baseball autographs this book is a must.I have found it extremely useful especially for the autographs that I do not have in my own exemplar file.The illustrations are great.

Wow! If you are an autograph collector that is interested in baseball signatures, this is required reading. This book is a great reference source for nearly every single Baseball Hall of Famer. In addition to being a required reference resource for collectors, it also provides valuable insight into the background of collecting and the types of media that collectors should be extra cautious about when considering a purchase. Whether you are new to the hobby or a long time collector (like me) this book will serve as your definitive "bible" for helping to navigate the precarious world of baseball signature collecting and is easily worth the cost for the peace of mind and direction that it provides! Been waiting for a well-researched book like this for years!

A fantastic resource and wonderfully written book on the hobby of autograph collecting on the whole and a brilliant reference piece on baseball Hall of Fame autographs specifically. The easy to read and understand signature analysis and the numerous exemplars provides collectors with a wealth of information.

A valuable guide for any serious collector of baseball Hall of Fame autographs. The book is very comprehensive, yet easy to read. The signature studies and practical advice makes it well worth the price. Due to the high amount of forgeries in the autograph market, this book should be a required reference in any collector's library. Whether one is a new or long-term collector, I highly recommend this book.

The best book on Baseball autographs! Spoiler Alert, you may find that some of your PSA/ JSA certified autographs are Forgeries!!! I will never bid or buy before consulting the new Bible of Baseball autographs. A great read and reference book!Craig

This is thought provoking book and a good read. The first chapter brings up several mediums for autographs that I had not thought about before. The forgery chapter was an especially enjoyable read. From the beginner to the long-term collector, this is a definite book to add to your library and collection. The book is an exemplary reference resource.

What we have is a complete guide that one can use. Examples are given of know forgeries to look out for as well as whether or not something would be worth collecting in the first place.
