View Full Version : I have an autograph question.....

02-23-2007, 04:11 PM
So, just for fun (and because I got a decent tax return) I decided to buy a topps autographed baseball box. It was guarenteed a HOF signature on a ball and a card with that player. I ended up with Mike Schmidt with a PSA certificate of authenticity. This is the first time I've ever dealt with auto's not on a card, and I need to know how to find out how much this ball is worth. If anybody has any ideas please let me know. (If it helps, I have a baseball subscription to Beckett online). Thanks in advance.

i would say between 140-200

Wow, I hope your right since I only paid $52 for the box. Thanks for the help.

I would disagree, you can get a auto ball for $80-$100, because it's a good cert I would add $25 to it so $140 would be the high range for the ball. Unless it has an inscription of some sort. Either way you got your $52 back :) Nice pull.

No inscription but a very clear auto. The stand also has a holder for a card and they sent it with a 1981 Topps base card. I'm actually considering changing that for a slight nicer card that I have laying around. Thanks again for all the feedback I'm getting.

i saw one with coa of mounted memories at 185

that's mounted memories though, that straight retail...I think $140 wouldn't be unreasonable. If you're gonna keep it I would go shopping for a nice raw NM rookie of his.

Good idea. I agree a RC would finish it up. Thanks for the idea. By the way, do you happen to know his rookie year?

1973 Topps.. and they aren't cheap! BTW, very nice pull!

Bummer - I had the entire 1973 topps set and traded it to my local dealer. Oh well, I guess life works that way. I'll just keep my eyes out for another.

If you look for a nice looking one that isn't high grade it will be a good show piece still with the ball.
