Welcome to Mark`s Signing Bonus! Circa 1992.
The best way to make the hobby fun is to make your collection unique.
- This site will be dedicated to a variety of sports with an emphasis towards baseball & football, including hockey, golf, basketball, boxing, olympics, coaching & racing successes. I should point out that your results can vary and of course I can't promise that any player I list will sign. My intent is to update anytime a new success is received. My goal is to provide information to collectors about those players that are willing to sign through the mail. This site is informational in nature and I will NEVER/EVER sell or trade these items. So don't ask.

This week I began reading Daniel Venn's book Beyond Baseball and have been impressed. This book uses baseball as a backdrop to Daniel's studies abroad in Costa Rica, Nicaragua & Panama. It's well worth picking up.
