Carl Erskine - 1952 Topps and a Ghost-Signer for Joe Coleman?

I really love getting the old cards signed.  By old, I mean pre-1960.  Unfortunately, many of those players are no longer with us.  There are still a few very good signers though.

One of those is Carl Erskine, who signed his 1952 Topps for me.


I also received a few cards back from Joe Coleman.  Unfortunately, I don't think they were signed by him.  I noticed a discussion on sportscollectors.net that someone may be signing for him, and the signatures I just got back don't match those I received back in 2003 when I last sent to him.  Too bad.

That's a shame, if he's indeed using a ghost signer. He's still very active, I saw him recently go through the McDonald's drive-thru off of Jackson and 14th St, in Anderson, I waved and said 'Hi, Mr Erskine!' out the window.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. I think Mr. Erskine is signing. It's Joe Coleman who may have someone else signing for him.
