I’m back again, it’s been a long time I know, but I wanted to put some of my newest stuff on here for all to see. Since last year I’ve been following Bournemouth after their promotion to the top tier. They had a solid first season and with that success they went on to sign their first star largest transfer in landing Jordan Ibes from Liverpool.
As a soccer newbie, I can’t explain why this is a great signing or not. I just know that it’s exciting to see such a young prospect land with the team you follow. For these 1961 Fleer style cards I wanted to do a series of young prospect signature cards. I’ve made a few, I will turn them into real cards. Right now I have seen some Jordan Ibe cards on eBay but all with Liverpool and none with the Cherries. So here is his first Bournemouth card. Let me know what you think of it and of Jordan Ibes.
Player information: I got this signature off of ebay, mainly because of the age of the player. He broke into the major leagues in 1901 with Cleveland. He is a subject in the famous T206 set of 1909 – 1911. He was listed as Livingstone in the set. Just before he passed away in 1977, he was the last surviving player of the inaugural year for the American League. Since he died in the 1970s, there aren’t a whole lot of autographs of him around. However if you want to find out, just click here and look.
This is the first through the mail I’ve gotten back since starting the blog. At first I thought that writing these guys during the season, I would have no successes, but I’m kind of pumped getting this one back because this was the first of the 1977 retro cards I created. It was in the first group of cards that I mailed out. Total time to get to me was 19 days! Anytime a player can send it back within a month is amazing considering it takes 10-14 days to go there and back at a minimum. Card looks great signed!
