One thought on “Sports/baseball/autograph/billymartin

  1. Dear Rose,

    It seems that such an authenticated piece could grab $600 – $2500.

    Estimates are given here on the basis of the sales of similar items:

    Official American League baseball autographed by Billy Martin

    $2499

    Sports Illustrated Magazine 6/25/75 autographed by Billy Martin

    $1599

    Official American League baseball autographed by New York Yankees

    legends including Billy Martin, [and others…]

    $699

    [All were available on Grand Stand Sports "Billy Martin Merchandise",

    <http://www.grandstandsports.com/gsm/p_Billy_Martin_1.asp>].

    So far so good, but also:

    So, your first option is to sell it to a dealer, but, as a site warns:

    "If you want to sell a Billy Martin autograph, eBay is still your best

    bet. A dealer will only give you about 50% of an autograph's value.

    Thanks to eBay's extremely active baseball auctions, it's easy for

    anyone to auction off single autographs or entire autograph

    collections for their market value.". (SOURCE: 2Baseball "Billy Martin

    On eBay, an item titled "BILLY MARTIN AUTOGRAPH AND CARD" is being

    auctioned on a minimum "Buy It Now" price of $49.95 (higher than the

    price of an autographed card at Grand Stand Sports):

    2Baseball also proposes, in order to being able to evaluate the piece:

    "if you collect autographs, you definitely need a guidebook. It's the

    easiest way to avoid getting taken. Dan Zachofsky's Handbook for

    Collecting Baseball Memorabilia is a good source for information on

    baseball autographs and their selling prices. The Standard Catalog of

    Sports Autographs is another popular value guide. " (SOURCE: ibid).

    Finally, the Billy Martin site's FAQ also addresses the subject:

    "I have memorabilia/autograph of Billy Martin; can you tell me how

    much it is worth?
