Five 1985-1995 Signed Perez-Steele "Great Moments" Sets: 42 Signed Cards Per Set (210 Hall of Fame Signed Cards) Signatures Total

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $6,960.00

Presented are five complete sets of 1985-1995 Perez-Steele "Great Moments" cards, with every set having been signed by the same forty-two Hall of Fame players, for a total of 210 signed cards. Each set includes all 108 cards in the set. These five sets are from the very same extraordinary assemblage of signed Perez-Steele "Great Moments" and signed "Hall of Fame" postcards presented in this auction. These sets were assembled by an extremely dedicated hobbyist who specialized in Perez-Steele cards and was very active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The "Great Moments" set was issued in series of twelve cards. Each of the five sets therefore consists of 108 cards (only 42 autographed). The Perez-Steele "Great Moments" set features only Hall of Fame players and is designed in the style of the classic 1911 Turkey Red cabinet cards. Each card was limited to a print run of only 5,000 and every card is individually numbered on the reverse. Organized by series, these are the forty-two signed cards in each of the five sets: First Series: Kaline, Ford, Aaron, Musial; Second Series: T. Williams, Spahn, Koufax, Roberts, Mantle, Banks, McCovey, Mize; Third Series: Reese, Irvin, Mathews, Slaughter, Gehringer, Snider, Dandridge, Hubbell, Doerr; Fourth Series: Dickey, Stargell, B. Robinson, Herman, Aparicio, Gomez, Killebrew; Fifth Series: Bench, Berra, Schoendienst, Marichal, Leonard, Kell; Sixth Series: Hunter, Boudreau, Mays, Brock, Lemon, B. Williams, Ferrell, and Yastrzemski. The cards (5.75 x 8 inches) are all in Near Mint to Mint condition and the signatures (all of which are scripted in blue Sharpie) are all extremely high quality, ranging from "9" to "10" in grade. Each of the five groups of forty-two autographed cards of Hall of Famers lists for a total of $2,017 in the 2005 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards guide. This catalog value total is for the signed cards only (does not include the unsigned cards) and uses prices which at least in some cases appear to be very low. (For example, the Standard Catalog lists a value of $250 for Mantle but this signed card has been selling for over $400 on eBay.) Each series is housed in its original box. This is an extraordinary investment-grade Hall of Fame signed collection including many now deceased players. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Total: 540 cards (108 cards in each set) including 210 signed cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $6,960.00
