Two major offerings of signed b/w HOF plaque postcards reached the auction block in the 2010s. First, in 2014, there was a Philadelphia-area collection headlined by a Ruth Albertype that sold for a then-record $77,675. Next, in 2017, Huggins & Scott had the pleasure of auctioning a complete 50-signature set of b/w HOF plaque postcards, including the elusive and desirable Grover Cleveland Alexander, which set a new standard at $78,870. Now we're proud to ring in this new decade of the 2020s with another significant treasure trove, again replete with rarity, high-grade preservation and gem signatures. ALL are authenticated and encapsulated.
