Autographed Cards A-Z -- Kaat to Kessinger

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 specifically collect signatures from the 1968 Tigers but I'd want this one anyways.

Don was the shortstop for the Cubs of my youth.  Until the Tri-Star card came out in 2008 this was the only certified auto available.  Of course it's still the best.  My three copies are below.

 I don't generally like cut auto's of living players but Don is a member of the '69 Cubs and I got this for a great price.  It's basically a nice large sticker auto on a picture-less card.  It's not really a cut auto at all.
