Lot #1 Baseball Hall of Fame Autographed Cards/Hank Greenberg, Duke Snider & 3 Others
This lot #1 of three groups of Hall of Fame baseball players in this sale includes Hank Greenberg, Duke Snider, Brooks Robinson, Monte Irvin and Carl Hubbell. Greenberg, who passed away several decades ago, is both the rarest and most expensive of the group, retailing for $80-$120+. Snider and Robinson are more current but still command a good price. Hubbell, while retired during World War II, is very rare as an autograph, but because he played before most current fans were born he doesn't bring quite the price he should. Monte Irvin was both a star in the Negro Leagues and in Major League baseball. The group should retail in the range of $175 to $250; the prices do vary a great deal from seller to seller. The low figure would be an excellent price in today's marketplace (which is lower than normal due to the pandemic), while the high in the range ($250) is too much for an astute buyer to pay. Our normal retail would be at the low end of the range. For this sale we are offering all five Hall of Famers for the amount one might spend on just the Greenberg piece alone. (I won't go into detail here but Hank Greenberg was a phonomenol player and also a terrific human being. I had the privilege of interviewing him for an article I was writing....yikes, 40 years ago). Please see our other two lots of 5 each HOFer autographs as well.
