Description



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.

 

Subject: Jackie Robinson

Issue: 1956-63 Artvue Type 2

Notes: Not only did Robinson break baseball's color barrier, but he did the same for Cooperstown, becoming the first black Hall of Fame inductee in 1962. Inscribed "Best Wishes." Previous record price for Robinson was $3,800 in 2017. Died in 1972.
