1960 Nu-Card Baseball Hi-Lites Complete Set Autographed (45 of 72)
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $1,972.00
This fascinating complete set of seventy-two cards issued by Nu-Card features many of baseball's greatest moments presented in a mock newspaper design. This set has forty-five of the seventy-two cards autographed, which is actually far more impressive with reference to completion than it sounds, as many of the non-signed cards feature players which had passed away long before the set was issued (such as Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson), and are therefore impossible to obtain in signed form. Thirty-five cards are signed in ballpoint pen and ten are signed in Sharpie marker or felt-tip pen. This is an extraordinary issue for signed cards, featuring many of the players' greatest moments, and highlighted by stars such as Jackie Robinson, two Mickey Mantle, Hank Greenberg, etc. Each card is neatly signed, with strong signatures throughout ranging in grade from "9" to "10". The signed cards are as follows (45 signed plus four secretarial/stamped): #2 Podres, 3 Lavagetto/Bevens, 5 Vander Meer, 6 Coveleski (signed on reverse), 7 DiMaggio (secretarial signature), 9 Haddix, 10 Thomson, 11 Hubbell, 12 Marion, 18 Larsen, 20 Banks, 21 Musial, 22 Mantle, 23 Sievers, 25 Schoendienst, 27 Mays (secretarial), 28 Berra, 29 Campanella (stamped signature), 30 Turley, 31 Alston, 33 Adcock, 34 Dickey, 35 Burdette, 36 Lyons, 37 Reese, 38 DiMaggio (secretarial), 42 Greenberg, 44 Roberts, 45 Rizzuto, 46 Newhouser, 49 Killebrew, 50 Mantle, 53 J. Robinson, 54 Snodgrass, 55 Snider, 57 Kluszewski, 59 Kuenn, 60 Feller, 61 Stengal, 63 Spahn, 64 Sain, 65 Kaline, 66 Allison, 67 McCovey, 68 Colavito, 69 Erskine, 70 Maglie, 71 Wynn, and 72 Fox. The set is bright and crisp, ranging in grade from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt overall. Total 72 cards (45 signed). LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
