A Look at the Signature Stylings of Babe Ruth
His numbers have been surpassed over the decades, but there is no doubting Babe Ruth’s status as a legend of the long ball. As his signature is one of the most desired in the hobby, educating yourself before a purchase is important. The following PSA Blog post looks at the stylistic changes in The Great Bambino’s classic signature.

Collecting 1959 Home Run Derby Cards – A "Grand Slam" of Vintage Baseball Sets
This classic 1950s set is chock-full of the greatest home run hitters of the day, and back then, there were some great ones! Mantle, Mays, Aaron, Mathews... the list goes on and on. SMR takes a detailed look at the 1959 Home Run Derby cards.

You get one of the most exciting ballplayers of our time: Ken Griffey, Jr. And despite his legendary status, his rookie card set is quite affordable. The following SMR piece discusses the challenges to be found in attempting that quest!
