1998-2005 "Dual-Signed" Signature-Card Collection - Twenty-One Hall of Famers, plus Derek Jeter and Other Stars
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,258.75
Substantial collection of eighteen modern-era "dual-signed" signature cards, issued by Upper Deck and Topps, spanning the years 1998 to 2005. A total of twenty-four Hall of Fame signatures (twenty-one different) are represented on these eighteen cards, the overwhelming majority of which are from the 2005 Upper Deck "Ultimate Signature Edition" series. It should be noted these special signature cards were greatly limited in number and were normally issued randomly in packages of regular cards. However, because they are actual cards, they have always been highly prized by collectors, over and above the intrinsic value of the signatures themselves. One of the most important factors with regard to these signed cards is authenticity. All of the signatures on the cards were normally obtained under a rigid protocol overseen by the respective issuer, thereby providing collectors with a high degree of assurance that the signature is genuine. Sixteen of the eighteen cards in this collection were issued by Upper Deck, with the other two issued by Topps. For each listing, the card's limitation number (if it has one) is noted in parentheses. All of the cards are in Near Mint condition.
