Bargain HOFer Certified On-Card Autos




Reading The Snorting Bull's most recent post on Fleer Greats of the Game Autographs it made me think about revisiting one autograph set that I think, in my amateur collector opinion, are very under rated and affordable given the checklist. I have covered the 1999 Fleer Greats of the Game Sports Illustrated autos Here. For an opening bid of $7.99 you can bid on the following HOFers-Bob Gibson, Harmon Killebrew, Al Kaline, Bob Feller-now I know these will not go at the price but for $22.95 you can BIN football great Gayle Sayers’ auto,
or if you are looking for non-HOFers there is Sparky Lyle opening bid (0 bids and ending soon) of $4.99, and for Redbird collectors Lou Brock Bin $13.30, Enos Slaughter BIN $19.99, and Bob Forsch BIN for $8.49 (Bob didn’t sign much before his death a few years ago).

I also believe there is another issue, though unlicensed, that allows for someone to pick up HOFer autos for a reasonable price.

This issue is the 1994 Nabisco All-Star and All-Star Legends has several HOFers for excellent prices-if you can put up with logoless cards. Duke Snyder BIN $11.99, Frank Robinson BIN $14.98, Cardinals Great Bob Gibson BIN $14.99, Jim Palmer BIN $8.99, and Mr. Cub Ernie Banks at BIN price of $15.99 and if that is too high for ya best offers accepted!



According to the PSA website :

“About this set: Nabisco had 4 autos for this set that were available only through the mail. They were Bob Gibson, Duke Snider, Frank Robinson and Jim Palmer. Nabisco also had 9 others sign for for this set. Those cards were given out at local events. They were Al Oliver, Bill Mazeroski, Sparky Lyle, Tug McGraw, Jim Wynn, Paul Blair, Boog Powell, George Foster and Willie Horton. The 9 cards that were given out at local events are much more scarce than the cards given out through the mail.”

  2. One of my favorite cards is the Bill Lee autograph from that Sports Illustrated set. Never understood why they were so much cheaper than other autographs.

    1. I don't understand why? I picked up the Roger Craig auto for $5!

    2. I think that's about what I paid too for my Craig. Crazy.
