The Way Cut Signatures Should Look

I could write up a whole blog post about how Topps lost their Player’s Inc license yesterday and probably won’t be able to produce football cards in 2010, but this being the “Year of the License” it shouldn’t surprise you that these things are happening.  I’m not going to repeat everything that has been said already.

Yesterday in the mail I received a copy of Insider’s Edge magazine and I came across an interesting article about Sean Broderick.  Mr. Broderick probably has one of the best cut signature collections The Hobby has ever seen, especially if your a hockey fan.  His collection doesn’t consist of cards that were pulled from packs.  Instead he purchases authentic documents signed by players such as Art Ross, Lord Stanley, and Georges Vezina.  For those collectors not familier with hockey, these players are equal to Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Cap Anson, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, Alexander Cartwright, and Jim Thorpe.  In many cases these signatures are much harder to find.  With help from Garret Morrison, these rare signatures are inserted into custom made cards just for Broderick’s collection.  In the end they are slabbed and authenticated by PSA/DNA.  In my opinion, these are some of the best looking cut signatures I’ve ever seen.  You rarely see photography like this on cut signatures.  They have the perfect balance of photograph and autograph.  Take a look at the windows too.  Usually a cut signature is placed in a plain square.  These windows have unique designs and cater towards the signature themselves.  Mr. Broderick was nice enough to send over a few images for you to take a look.  He is constantly looking for more signatures of players and donors from this era.  If you have something you think he might need, please e-mail him at: seanieb21@hotmail.com.  For a closer look, click on each image.
