1960 Fleer All-Time Greats Autographed Card Collection (20)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $812.00
Collection of twenty autographed 1960 Fleer "All-Time Greats" cards includes seventeen Hall of Famers: #4 Hubbell, 16 Boudreau, 19 Marion, 26 Feller, 27 Appling, 29 Hartnett, 38 Mize, 37 O'Doul, 43 Derringer, 52 Terry, 54 Gomez, 58 Gehringer, 60 Grove, 63 Ruffing, 68 Newhouser, 69 Hoyt, 71 Averill, 73 Giles, 78 L. Waner, 79 Kiner. All twenty cards have been signed and the signatures range in grade from a "6" to a "10," averaging an "8" overall. Thirteen cards are signed in ballpoint pen, seven in Sharpie marker or felt-tip pen. Seven cards grade Ex; the balance are Vg or better. This is a far more substantial collection of autographed cards than its modest number might at first suggest. Only thirty-nine of the eighty players in the set could theoretically exist autographed, since forty-nine of the featured players (such as Babe Ruth and Cy Young) were deceased before the set was issued. Of the nineteen missing cards that could have been signed, eight were of players who died between the year of issue and 1967. Ty Cobb, for example, passed away in July 1961; Bobo Newsom died in 1962, etc. Some of these players may have never signed their 1960 Fleer cards. Total 20 cards. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $812.00
