2010 Historic Autographs "In Memory Of" Edition

Coming is September 2010; Historic Autographs will issue a unique series featuring only deceased baseball players. Although morose on its face, the product idea is to honor those ball players that have passed and offer collectors a variety of autographs, subsets, inserts and graded autographs of departed players. Contents will included considerable more desirable players than previous issues as well as a "Golden Ticket" graded autograph subset that will include every player in the set as a "1 of 1" graded version to be used in the PSA Set Registry.

Our production run is similar to previous editions but will come in 8-box cases (400 cases in all). Each case will include guarantees - (1) Group B player per case, (2) Group C players per case, (1) insert per case and (4) "1 of 1" Golden Ticket cards per case, so every box will have something special. Each box will include one player that passed away between 1996-2010, a player that passed between 1980-1995 and the third card will feature a player with a pre-1980 death date.

Historic Autographs has taken great care putting this product and player lists together. We have listened to the distributors, store owners, consumers and message boards to build the best product possible. The time consuming process to create a player list that includes many rarities and difficult high value players pushed our release date to mid-September.

The very prominent subsets will include a 20th Century Presidents subset, a teammates subset (most with tough HOFers included), a Great Champions Teams subset for the Dodgers, Cardinals, Red Sox and Yankees (with Myles Thomas, Joe Giard, Joe Grabowski and Urban Shocker) and an interesting subset titled "Way Too Young" for those players that either died tragically or passed away before their time.

Although Historic Autographs has gone to great lengths to put a stronger selection of high value cards, the pricing structure remains the same as our previous edition.
