Hi new member - tried using search function to no avail...I've inherited several authenticated, game used Yankee lineup cards from 1951 season. Several list 5 or 6 HOF's including Mantle and Dimag batting in 3 and 4 position. One card is Raschi no hitter. Most completed in pencil with stadium ground rules on reverse - all completed and signed in bottom right by Stengel. Condition of all generally very good to excellent. Are these common in the market? Range of value?

I know nothing regarding the desire or value of lineup cards. 1951 is Joe D's last year, so I assume these lineup cards have some significant following. Combine the fact that it is a game used item, Joe D's last year and an authentic Stengel autograph and I think you have a winner that would not be considered common.

Give JSA Authentifiaction a call for them to slab, grade and authenticate the cards. Then you have them preserved nicely for self preservation or ready to send to an auction house (Mastro/Goodwins).

It also won't hurt that the Yankee's won the series in 51. That fact will even have more of a fan following. Raschi was a 20 game winner that year, including the clintcher in the World Series (3 years in a row). I do not know if Raschi actually threw a no hitter in 1951. Allie Reynolds threw two of them, but I do not know about Raschi.

May 1, 1951 was Mantle's first home run. If you have that card it is probably worth a small fortune.
September 28, 1951 was Joe D's last home run. Again, this one is probably worth a significant amount.

Thanks for your help. One of the cards is Sept 28, 1951 so it appears to be last game Mantle and Dimaggio played together as well. I'll try to post a picture of it if I can figure out how. Raschi pitched a no hitter as second game of double header near the end of regular season - date's not on the card though. My father in law used to collect these cards from the home plate umpire after the games.

It wasn't the last game they played together, but it was Joe D's last home run. I assume that one will be worth a significant amount and should be placed with an auction house after it is slabbed/authenticated. This assumes you are not keeping.

Thanks. The card dated 9/28 B.O. lists Rizzuto, Coleman, Bauer, Di Maggio, McDougald, Berra, Woodling, Collins, and Raschi. That is the no-hitter game for Raschi (and Joe D's last home run?) No mention of Mantle. I believe 9/28/51 was a double-header. The cards are already authenticated and we were trying to figure a value to split the estate fairly. Not keeping is an option but we will need to go to an auction if any feeling that they are valuable - I just can't get a consistent value from some of the memorabilia shops I have visited, so I thought I'd try to get some opinions here.

For an estate split, if you can agree with relatives, the money could be split after auction. Mastro or Goodwins could probably at least give you a price range that is far better than you will get from most dealers.

If the cards are not authenticated by JSA or PSA, I would get them authenticated again to maximize their value.

OK had the card authenticated by JSA last week - Spoke with Chris at Mastros who has no record in his database of any similar item, and basically no idea re value?? I think I'm gonna throw one of the cards up on ebay next week - line up of 9/30/51 - last regular game of the season, B.O. Mantle (RF), Rizzuto (SS), Bauer (LF), DiMaggio (CF), Mize (1B), Berra (C), Brown (3B), Coleman (2B), Shea (P). If anyone wants to make an offer before the auction PM me. I can email photos.
