I know being in mint condition increases the value of cards, comics, and such. Does an autograph count as an "imperfection"?

There are some obvious difference in his physique as the years went on.
But his Rookie Card told many stories.

Sure kind of funny from a historical perspective, but $100K is way too much for something like that. You can get a Bonds autographed jersey for like $1000 nowadays. Despite the mildly amusing message, this should top-out at $200 (maybe $300 for a particularly enthusiastic and stupid buyer).

the irony is only someone on drugs would pay that much for it

A Bonds autographed rookie card would normally probably only sell for $50 or so, so probably $100-200 because of the amusing message

DrewCurtisJr: Does an autograph count as an "imperfection"?


Depends who's buying it, really.  Numeric grading scales and magazine price guides only work for relatively common, completely "normal" items.  Anything really unusual and the value just comes down to who shows up for the auction and what they're willing to pay.

Looks like PSA didn't even grade it anyway, just authenticated it.

I have a mint Honus Wagner with his writing "Screw von Bismarck".

Why do people pay an obscene amount of money for an old piece of paper with a picture printed on it?

/or anything "collectable", really
//I should start my own "collectable" stuff racket and sell it on QVC

Grading the card as well costs more. So does grading the autograph itself. The seller really cheaped out considering the asking price.

If it had been a 1997 card then we'd really have something.
