Baseball Autographs by Mail

My name is Chris and I have been collecting baseball autographs by mail since March of 2001. This website is a log of the requests I have sent out and the successes I have gotten and the failures. I will try to update this site on a biweekly basis. I primarily request autographs of retired players.

My favorite baseball team is the Atlanta Braves and my favorite players of all time are Brett Butler , Dale Murphy ,both of whom I had the pleasure of seeing play for the Richmond Braves when I was young, and Cal Ripken who I met in person when he played for the Rochester Redwings.

Please excuse the sparse appearance of my site as it is a work in process and I am not an expert in HTML and don't have the resources to fully develop this site to its best potential. I currently update this site using a shared computer and do not have access to a scanner.

This is a list of my 10 favorite autographs in my collection
