1980-2001 Perez-Steele Hall of Fame Postcard Autographed Set (80 Signed Cards)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259
This complete set of Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcards is comprised of 275 cards (including all fifteen checklist cards) and features eighty signed examples. Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcards, which are universally recognized as one of the most classic issues ever produced for autograph collectors, were originally issued in fifteen individual series between 1980 and 2001. With the exception of seven cards (featuring Hall of Fame Officials, Perez-Steele Gallery executives, and other non-ballplayers) only Baseball Hall of Fame members are included in the set. Each card was limited to a print run of 10,000 and every card is individually numbered on the reverse. Of the 275 cards in the set, only 104 could possibly have been signed by Hall of Fame players (the balance of the players passed away prior to the date of publication). The offered collection features eighty signed Hall of Fame player cards. All of the cards are from set number "01982" with the exception of the Ed Roush signed card ("00221"). In addition to the eighty signed cards, the collection also includes signature examples of Jimmie Foxx (cut signature), Hank Greenberg (3 x 5 card), and Stan Coveleski (3 x 5 card). Each signature has been scripted in blue Sharpie on the front and grades either "9" or "10."
