Eppa Rixey Autographed 1961 Fleer Baseball Greats Card: Key Signed Rarity (Deceased 1963)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $480

Exceedingly rare autographed Fleer Baseball Greats card #71 of Eppa Rixey. The Hall of Fame hurler has signed the card in blue ink (grading "7") across his image. As anyone who has ever attempted to put together an autographed set of 1961 Fleer cards knows, Rixey is one of the key rarities to the assembly of a collection of all possible signed 1961 Fleer Baseball Greats cards. The reason for that is timing. Rixey passed away on February 28, 1963, leaving autograph collectors with less than a two-year window of opportunity to obtain his signature on the card. This is the first example we have ever offered, and one of the few we have ever seen. The card displays two ink notations on the reverse and is otherwise in Excellent condition. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $480
