1961 Nu-Card Baseball Scoops Autographed Set (51 of 80)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,044.00

The Nu-Card "Scoops" set features many of baseball's greatest moments presented in a mock newspaper design. This near-complete set is comprised of 51 of the 80 cards in the set, all autographed. This is actually far more impressive with reference to completion than it sounds, as many of the missing cards feature players who had passed away long before the set was issued (such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Christy Mathewson), and are therefore impossible to obtain in signed form. The missing numbers include: 404, 411, 417, 419, 422, 424, 426, 427, 428, 429, 432, 439, 440, 441, 443, 447, 448, 450, 452, 454, 455, 456, 458, 461, 462, 467, 471, 476, 477. 30 cards are signed in ballpoint pen and 23 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 Roger Maris and Hank Greenberg, as well as lesser stars with legendary great moments such as Don Larson and Bobby Thomson. Each card is neatly signed with strong signatures throughout ranging in grade from "8" to "10" on a scale of "1" to "10." The signed cards are as follows: #401 Gentile, 402 Spahn, 403 Mazeroski, 405 Held, 406 Law, 407 Runnels, 408 Burdette, 409 Stuart, 410 Cardwell, 412 Mathews, 413 Groat, 414 Autry, 415 Richardson, 416 Maris, 418 Larsen, 420 Banks, 421 Musial, 423 Sievers, 425 Schoendienst, 430 Turley, 431 Sherry, 433 Adcock, 434 Dickey, 435 Burdette, 436 Lyons, 437 Reese, 438 DiMaggio, 442 Greenberg, 444 Roberts, 445 Rizzuto, 446 Newhouser, 449 Killebrew, 451 Spahn, 453 Berra, 457 Kluszewski, 459 Kuenn, 460 Feller, 463 Spahn, 464 Erskine, 465 Kaline, 466 Allison, 468 Colavito, 469 Erskine, 470 Maglie, 472 Fox, 473 Marion, 474 Podres, 475 Owen, 478 Haddix, 479 Hubbell, 480 Thomson. The set is bright and crisp, ranging in grade from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt overall. Total 51 cards. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,044.00
