Got this in the other day from a trade. No one knows who the other signature is, from my research, the trader's research, and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Still cool to have a Clemente auto.

Not necessarily looking to trade or sell yet, but curious as to how much you would pay/trade for it? It seems to be very rare so I'm just trying to get an approximate value.

Thanks! Up for trade/sale. Not going to give it away but I would consider high end offers. Certainly not something I need to get rid of!

A recent eBay sale of a Clemente auto graded an 8 on a baseball card went for $2,935. Since you have a 9, I would expect a value between $3-4K. The only thing that could hurt the value a little is the other signature on the card, typically single signed items are valued higher than multiple-signed items. Still a fantastic piece of baseball history you've got there!

Wow that's great news. It seems really hard to price it, I've had guesstimates all over the place but I hope this is closest to the actual value.

It's a nice item! One thing that fakes slot of people out is the psa encapsulated item is not looked at in this case fore anything to do with the authenticity of the autograph just the strength of the ink for the autograph.

That proved what I was saying. It says it right on the label.

"auto grade only" as in not grading the piece of paper it's on. "PSA/DNA certified" as in this is certified to be real by PSA/DNA.

Wow... I was mistaken. Your item is also authenticated. I wish that outfit would not put that it's the strength of the signature only. It should say authentic auto like the other ones.

Yeah I guess, but then why would they just slab something that's fake? Or that they don't even examine to be real? I think that would confuse a lot of people if it has PSA's name on it and it's not for the actual authenticity of the item - just for the strength of the signature.

That's a good pint however they do it too often here is a RUBER STAMPED card encased just like yours that just sold on eBay.

Or a couple very bad forgeries they authenticated...

A mispelled Foxx.

I'm not saying yours is bad... I think yours is a good auto.

In my eyes they are a scam... The more you spend with them the less they care. Too many stories about how they are so shady. They are also autograph dealers them selves...

What do you mean they are autograph dealers? Do they have PSA stores or...?

They are fellow collectors that sell stuff. No known stores but it's a conflict of interest.

I don't understand how that makes them shady?

They can authenticate pretty much anything and just say that it's Psa authenticated andsell it themselves.
