Unique 1980-2001 Perez-Steele Hall of Fame Postcard Set Autographed and Artist-Signed
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,900.00
Unique artist and Hall of Famer signed set. Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcard complete set of 275 cards, with 78 cards signed by Hall of Famers (of the approximately 100 possible), and with all but two (273 cards) also signed by artist Dick Perez. This was the first Perez-Steele art card set. Widely recognized as the premier Hall of Fame postcard set ever issued, the art emulates the style of the Allen & Ginter set of 1887. Publishing began in 1980 and the set was updated every two years to add new inductees. There are now 253 Hall of Fame members featured in the set. The sets are numbered and limited to 10,000 sets. Issued over a span of years from 1980 to 2001, this complete set of 253 Hall of Fame postcards (each numbered "2,782 of 10,000"), plus fifteen checklist cards, and seven "bonus" cards (for a total of 275 postcards), is unique in that all but two cards have been signed by artist Dick Perez in ballpoint pen or Sharpie. (The Gehrig and the "Fifteenth Series" checklist are the two cards not signed.) The seventy-eight postcards signed by Hall of Famers (also signed by Dick Perez) are as follows: Hubbell, Gehringer, Dickey, Terry, DiMaggio, Feller, Appling, Grimes, T.
