All of the cards are from the numbered set "1382/10,000." As a point of reference, the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards lists the combined value of the offered thirty-six signed Celebration cards and 113 signed Great Moments postcards at $7,487. The guide does not yet list a value for the signed Master Works cards, but if we assume an equivalent value (which may or may not be accurate, but at least serves as a point of reference) for each player in the Master Works set, as compared to the same player in either the Celebration or Great Moments set (taking the lesser value if different), the approximate "book" value for the Master Works set would be $1,025, thus resulting in a total book value of the 170 signed cards of $8,512. Total: 170 signed cards. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $5,036
