Includes both variations of card #147, 176, 190, 458. The balance of the set ranges in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). A few of the many key rare signed cards of now deceased players include: Ken Hubbs rookie card, Weekly, McFarlane, Chacon, E. Howard, etc. The Ken Hubbs signed card is a perfect example of how non-Hall of Fame players can often be the rarest to obtain in signed form. Hubbs died tragically in a plane crash in February 1964, leaving a very short window of opportunity for him to sign any cards. There are many other equally rare signed cards in this set, and in all of the other sets presented in this expansive collection, but few cards are accompanied by such a dramatic and easy to understand explanation for their great rarity as Ken Hubbs' 1962 rookie card. Total 552 cards. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,930.00
