What is the value of a Mickey Mantle autographed baseball?

User Avatar
A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400-$600. The price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of a pristine signature or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to approximately $1,000. Personal inscriptions like "Good luck Mike" could sell for less than $400. A rarely signed full-name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5, 2007, live eBay auction, when it sold for $2,390. Along with condition, the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company before he passed away. Baseballs that have the Upper-Deck hologram could sell in the $1,000-$1,500 price range. And signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. In about a dozen recent auctions (June-August 2009) a Mickey Mantle-signed baseball sold for a high of $597.50. The average selling price was about $475. One baseball (inscribed "No. 7") sold for $836.50. And in an April 2009 auction, a Mickey Mantle-signed baseball (inscribed "MVP '56 '57 '62") sold for $1,792.50! In addition, a rare Mickey Charles Mantle- signed baseball sold for $1,314.50. So it's worth up to over $1000.

What is the value of the last autograph of Babe Ruth signed on his deathbed?

User Avatar
A Babe Ruth autograph could sell anywhere between $4,000. to $20,000. and up. Depending on the Item signed, condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Even a "cut signature" The lowest price for a signed item (a signature on a piece of paper, or "cut" from a larger piece) will sell in the $2,000. range. As far as his last autograph being signed on his deathbed (I'm assume you mean before he died) you will have a hard time selling it as such without strong letters of provenance. Provenance is the ultimate proof of the origin or source from which something comes, and the history of subsequent owners. Provenance can come in different forms and with varying degrees of impact. In order for provenance to have an impact in authenticating an item like this it must come from a verifiable source. For example, a letter that comes from a source like a doctor that is know to have treated "The Babe," or a family member. Without this it is just merely an old $10,000. Baseball with Babe Ruth's signature on it. An autograph (baseball?) of such historic significance would be well known in the hobby, and would have already been sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not in the hall of fame. I have never heard of such an autograph, and without Provenance it will not exist beyond a story told by the owner of the ball.

How do you find the value of an autographed baseball?

User Avatar
That answer is really up to market conditions as well as what one individual will pay for a certain item. First things first, buy SCD (Sports Collectors Digest) as well as other Hobby Publications. Familiarize yourself with the price guidews listed for the particular player. Furthermore, if you have vintage material i.e. ball or picture signed in the 40's 50's etc...that will determine a premium for it...as well as condition. Remember, find out the provenance of the autograph.........if the seller doesn't know it or is very evaisive BUYER BEWARE. The hobby was built with the trust of seller buyer relationships. Price Guide but first... There are many factors to conceder before putting a value on an autographed baseball by simply looking up the value in a price guide. Factor one. How was the signture(s) acquired? If you witnessed the signing then you know for sure that it is an authentic hand signed signature. If you found the Item in a box, or at a garage sale for example then there is a chance that it is not authentic, and can also be a facsimile signature. Before you spend money on having the signatures authenticated be sure that they are not facsimile signatures. A lot of people mistaken facsimile signatures as authentic. Facsimile signatures are printed on, as opposed to authentic hand signed signatures. If the signatures are signed with a felt pen for example, the ink will tend to be heavier at points where the pen started, stopped or slowed while signing. Lighter, thinner, or less dense when the pen is quickened or coming off the item. With facsimile signatures the ink will trend to be more uniform, or the same density throughout. Factor two. Authenticity. An autographed baseball that is not authenticated by a creditable company could sell at half the price or less than one that is. Two of the top, and most trusted authenticators are PSA/DNA, and James Spence Authentic (JSA). Collectors will pay more for signatures authenticated by either one. It may sound odd but in some cases PSA/DNA, and JSA authenticated signatures may sell higher than a Letter of authenticity from an unknown or less trusted authenticator that witnessed the signing even though PSA/DNA, and JSA did not. It's just a matter of collectors trust, and collectors will pay more for it. Factor three Condition. As with all collectibles this could be the most important factor of all providing that the signatures are authentic. The condition of the Item signed, as well as the signatures. The signature should be strong, and bold, as opposed to faded and hard to see. In the case of a baseball Blue ball point pen would be most preferred over sharpie which tends to fade quicker or bleed on a baseball. An educated collector will pay less for a sharpie signed baseball, if at all. Sharpie would be most preferred on a bat, or Photo. Factor Four The type of baseball that the signatures are signed on, as well as where the signatures were signed could also determine the price. An official baseball that was used during the players career will sell at a higher price. This can be determined by the stamp of the league president on the baseball. The manager or, and team star would be most desirable on the sweet spot. Collectors will also pay a premium for inscriptions such as "500 Home runs," and pay less for personal inscriptions like "Good Luck Mary." Price guides are based on average prices of recently sold, and closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary on team signed baseballs based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. You may find prices on single signed baseballs, as well as team signed baseballs on my website. The team signed baseball price guide includes a list of key players as well as links to full team rosters year by year. I will provide a link on this page for your convenience.

How much is an autographed Mickey Mantle picture worth?

User Avatar
A Mickey Mantle signed 8 x 10 photo sells for about $150.-$300. Price will vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Photo composition, and appeal will effect the price as well. Part of the value will be determined by how well the photo displays the signature. The type of ink used, and how it stands out in contrast to the photograph will also effect the price. Sharpie would be most preferred for a photo. Larger and more desired pictures could sell for more. Mickey Mantle signed a lot of Autographs. One of the most sought after signatures, there are also a lot of fakes on the market. The numbers are alarming. This is why to get top dollar for an autograph it should be properly authenticated. Signatures that are not properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. For more information on Mickey Mantle signatures visit the link below.

How much is a Troy Aikman autograph worth?

User Avatar
3 to 5 hundred dollars minimum because he is a 2 time super bowl winner and in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton,Ohio. ==== Actually Aikman has won three Super Bowls. But in any event, "value" or "worth" are very subjective things when it comes to collectibles. In my opinion, any collectible is worth whatever a willing seller and a willing buyer can agree on. And of course, it's worth will be affected by its condition, age, its rarity (are there similar items around, and if so, how many and how expensive are they?), how desirable is it, and how badly does someone else really want it, can autographs be verified, etc. Since I'm not able to see the item, I really couldn't put a value on it, even if I were an expert in such things. If you want to establish a value in order to sell it, you should probably consult a local sports memorabilia dealer (a local baseball card shop owner may be able to refer you), or better yet, a sports memorabilia appraiser. The American Society of Appraisers has a website where you can get a list of appraisers in your area who specialize in sports memorabilia: http://www.appraisers.org/ If you need an immediate estimate, check out similar listings on eBay. If you are a Cowboy fan and collect for the shear joy of ownership, then it really shouldn't matter what the item is worth. -- Dallas Cowboy Books Blog http://www.facebook.com/DallasCowboyBooksBlog

Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. It doesn't matter which card was signed. In general, collectors of baseball cards would rather have a baseball card without the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and will lower the value. If the signature has a lower value than the card it will lower the value of the card. The un-signed card will have a higher value.

What is the value of a 1966 Green Bay Packers team autographed football?

User Avatar
Footballs featuring the genuine autographs of the 60's-era Packers are highly sought by collectors. Presuming authenticity, values can range dramatically. Key factors are: the placement, size and clarity of the the star players' signatures (the bigger and bolder, the better), the type of ball (is it an "Official NFL" ball?), and the all-important overall condition of the ball and signatures. "Provenance" - the who, what, when and where of a signed ball's history, may also add value if documented. If genuine, your ball would be worth $500 to as much as $750, depending on all the aforementioned factors. An absolutely pristine official ball with Lombardi would be worth as much as as $1000. With autographs, a picture is truly worth the proverbial thousand words, and can save alotta time in the authentication, appraisal, and selling process. Just an FYI, a couple weeks ago in a New York auction, a '62, '63, and '65 Packer team signed balls went over $2500 a piece. The '65 went highest at $2980. This ball will fetch much more considering it is the first year for the superbowl, in which Green Bay defeated Kansas City. Other than Lombardi, you have 9 other HOFer's on it. Once authenticated, this ball will be the needle in a haystack. Anything less than $10k would be crazy.

What is the value of a Mickey Mantle autograph?

User Avatar
Signatures will vary in price based on condition, the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature, the item signed, and how well the item displays the signature. Baseballs are the most common, and preferred by collectors because of it's connection to the game, low cost, availability and it displays the signature well. The signed baseball represents the average price for a signature, and by deducting or adding from this price for the Item signed accordingly will give you a good idea on value. The lowest priced signed item would be for a "cut Signature." A cut signature is a signature on a piece of paper, or "cut" from a larger piece. Index cards are the next step up, and both sell at a fraction (about 10%-20%) the price of an autographed baseball. Autograph photos typically sell at about 40-60 percent the price of a baseball with bats, uniform Jersey's and equipment selling at a higher price due to the higher cost of the item, rarity and display. In general if an autographed baseball is worth $100. the same autograph on a 8x10 photo $50. a cut signature $20. on a bat $150. The percentage of the price could also vary based on the popularity of the player, and how sought after the signature is. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400.-$600. Price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of pristine signatures or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to the $1,000. price range. Personal inscription like "Good luck Mike" could sell below $400. A rarely signed full name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5th 2007 live eBay auction selling for $2,390. A signed photo sells between $150.-$300. After condition the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company before he passed away.

We've handled Carole Lombard memorabilia ranging from her own baby clothing (saved by her mother) to wreckage recovered from the plane crash which took her life. Among these items are many, many authentic Carole Lombard autographs. The Lombard Archive would certainly be happy to take a look at the signature (a clear scan first, then ultimately we would require an examination of the original item), and advise you of our findings.
