Autographed Cards A-Z

When I got back into collecting five or so years ago one of the things that excited me was the availability of autographed cards.  Perhaps I went a little overboard but I think I picked up some nice cards.  This will be an A-Z series of posts with varying numbers of cards.

I don't think anyone mentioned Dick Groat in 30 year old Cardboard's post of forgotten stars of the 1960's and 1970's.  He was the 1960 NL MVP, won two championships with different teams, was a 5 time all-star and is in collegiate hall of fames for both basketball and baseball.
