    Signed 1997 Perez-Steele Great Moments #98 Richie Ashburn PSA/DNA Mint 9. At first assigning the estimate for this card seemed like some pie-in-the-sky dream number proving long hours do in fact impair judgement. Perez-Steele "Great Moments" cards are relatively easy to find and are a popular medium for autograph enthusiasts. Richie Ashburn was a solid talent who played from 1949 to 1962. He was a steady hitter, just not the type to get 200 hits a season or one who hit 40 home runs. He wasn't inducted into the Hall of Fame until 1995. His Perez-Steele card was produced in 1997. By then Ashburn was 70-years old and passed away later in the same year on Sept. 9, 1997. This made finding a signed copy of this card close to impossible. This particular example displays a solid blue marker signature in a NM-MT card, serial numbered 1,567/5,000. The vast majority of autographed Great Moments sets are missing one signed card, and this is that card. Encapsulated PSA DNA Mint 9.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
