1940s-1980s Hall of Famer Signed Baseball-Card Collection (26) with 1950 Bowman Campanella

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,370.00

Outstanding collection of twenty-five different Hall of Famer signed baseball cards, plus a Billy Martin signed card (for a total of twenty-six signed cards), all of which have been encapsulated by PSA/DNA. The highlight of this group is a 1950 Bowman Roy Campanella card featuring a flawless, vintage, blue-ink signature on the front. Campanella-signed baseball cards, especially vintage examples dating from his playing career, are exceedingly rare as a result of his tragic car accident on January 28, 1958, which left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. All of the signatures have been certified by PSA/DNA as "Authentic," with twenty-two of the twenty-six cards having also been graded by the company as well (identified by a numerical grade). Ideally, the vast majority of the cards are either Bowman or Topps issues and date from the 1940s through the 1960s. Unless otherwise noted, all of the signatures (which are penned in a variety of inks, including Sharpie) appear on the front of the card and grade "9" or "10." The collection is comprised of the following: 1) 1949 Bowman #11 Lou Boudreau, GOOD 2. 2) 1949 Bowman #85 Johnny Mize, EX 5. 3) 1950 Bowman #75 Roy Campanella, includes the salutation "Best Wishes"; the front of the card grades GD, but the back has substantial paper residue as a result of its removal from an album; overall grade of PR. 4) 1950 Bowman #98 Ted Williams, PR-FR 1. 5) 1953 Bowman Color #97 Eddie Mathews, EX 5 (MK). 6) 1953 Bowman Color #33 Pee Wee Reese, VG 3. 7) 1954 Bowman #62 Enos Slaughter, EX 5. 8) 1957 Topps #10 Willie Mays, EX 5. 9) 1959 Topps #350 Ernie Banks, EX 5. 10) 1959 Topps #30 Nellie Fox, signature grades "6/7," EX-MT 6. 11) 1959 Topps #1 Ford Frick, signature grades "7," EX. 12) 1960 Topps #210 Harmon Killebrew, EX 5. 13) 1960 Topps #212 Walt Alston, VG-EX 4. 14) 1960 Fleer #41 Frank Baker, EX-MT 6. 15) 1960 Fleer #60 Lefty Grove, EX 5. 16) 1961 Fleer Lefty Gomez, has the salutation "With Best Luck," EX. 17) 1961 Topps #260 Don Drysdale, NM-MT 8. 18) 1961 Topps #88 Richie Ashburn, EX-MT 6. 19) 1961 Topps #490 Jim Bunning, EX 5. 20) 1964 Topps #155 Duke Snider, EX-MT 6. 21) 1972 Topps #34 Billy Martin, EX 5. 22) 1973 Topps #624 Leo Durocher, signature grades "6," EX-MT 6. 23) 1977 TCMA Renata Galasso #22 Satchel Paige, tack hole along the top border, otherwise VG-EX. 24) 1979 TCMA #2 Hank Greenberg, NM-MT 8. 25) 1979 TCMA #1 Joe DiMaggio, EX-MT 6. 26) 1983 Pacific Legends #98 Al Lopez, MINT 9.
