“In addition to PSA’s digital archives of authentic autograph exemplars to compare with customer’s items, I use a ProScope Micro Mobile, a high-resolution handheld microscope that is connected to an iPad for enlarging the details of the signatures. Everyone instantly can see the enlarged, tell-tale details of an autograph, and I explain why I think it’s either authentic or not,” said Grad.
Grad’s first in a series of upcoming appearances on Pawn Stars will be on Thursday, June 6, at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.
The PSA 1-graded T206 Honus Wagner that was listed on eBay is still listed at $435,000. So far, the card has received 70 offers—all of them declined by the seller.
Another PSA 1 sold via Robert Edward Auctions a couple of weeks ago for $402,900.
You can see the listing for the ‘Connecticut Wagner’ here. It’s scheduled to end Monday.
You want hip? You want cool? You want the L.A. art scene? Yes, you do. Because right now at the Known Gallery, two artists are presenting baseball-themed exhibitions that are drawing some attention.
“Out of Left Field” presents the work of two baseball-loving guys who draw on their powers of imagination to create some funky works of art.
Pat Riot and Bill Barminksi have their own unique visions. Riot’s work involves baseball player portraits created with…are you ready? Chewed bubble gum. Don’t knock it ‘til you see it and you can see it here.
You probably saw those camouflage-themed uniforms worn by Major League Baseball teams last Monday for Memorial Day. Some of the jerseys and caps have now made their way to MLB Auctions.
Chris Davis’ Orioles jersey is already over $4,000. Others aren’t nearly as expensive—at least not right now. Jerseys from Manny Machado, David Ortiz and Evan Longoria are among those up for bid.
Auctions close beginning early next week and more items are expected to be added. The Mother’s Day pink bat/jersey auctions are also underway.
All proceeds will go to MLB Charities.
