I posted a question about autographs in the Q&A section. We'll see if it gets a response this time.

Gunsmoke,

One of the previous posts is correct, SGC will only grade autographed cards that were issued by the cards manufacturer i.e inserts, etc. I believe all of the grading services have the same policy, but I am not positive. I hope this information is helpful. I also would like to wish a Happy and Healthy New Year to all of the message board members.

Best regards,
Sean-SGC

Anyone have an idea what this card might be worth?

Hi Gunsmoke --

The 1965 Topps Boog Powell was a short printed card, and therefore, would command a marginally higher value. Although, to a set collector, the card would probably be unacceptible as it has been "defaced" with an autograph. There are set collectors out there who specialize in sets of autoed cards, but those guys are few and far between.

To an autograph collector, the card may have some value, but autograph collecting is a whole different ballgame. You have to worry about authenticity of the autograph, condition of the auto, relative scarcity of a Powell auto, etc.

The SGC online price guide lists the Boog Powell card at $160 in mint condition ... that's as a slabbed mint card. On the other hand, in an Ebay auction that concludes in two days (Item # 1984984525), a '65 Boog Powell, which appears to be nicely centered and in (at least) near mint condition, has only two bids and the high bid is $1.60.

You could always put it up for auction on Ebay and let the market decide how much it's worth ...

Hope this helps.

It's funny to think that an autograph is considered defacing, but I can understand how it would.

Thanks alot for the info, it was very helpful.
