Seems like Ricky Wright may be the new Mike Marshall. Maybe Ricky will cave when people finally offer him a few hundred dollars for his sig.

Howser was around in Spring Training of 1987 so those cards signed, while still tough to find, aren't as rare as you'd expect.

Some of the tougher cards are the aforementioned Ricky Wright and Terry Forster, along with a few Latin guys who played very briefly after the set was issued. Juan Espino is tough, Al Pulido even tougher. Roy Lee Jackson is also hard to find as he was out of baseball when the card was issued and for a long time (maybe still) was unresponsive TTM.

Randy Myers was actually a very willing signer early in his career, which is good for 87T collectors as that was his rookie. He was flaky though, and would only sign current year cards, and dated them all with M/Y. In 1988 he started just signing the number for the month (4 for April for example), I guess because he figured the year was implied due to his self-imposed rules. When he was traded to the Reds, his policy became current year, current TEAM cards only. Now that he's retired, I've heard he signs all years of cards again, but still dates them. I believe at his last paid signing there were certain teams he would not sign. I think it was Orioles cards he wouldn't sign but I don't recall exactly. He is VERY infrequent with his appearances though (usually just FanFests) and does not sign TTM.

From the Traded set, Alan Wiggins is very difficult, as he was a tough in-person signer to begin with and died of AIDS in 1989. He was out of baseball and living a somewhat transient lifestyle by the time that card was issued.

I have a Ricky Wright but it is on a photo not a card.

I have an Espino. I have heard that Wiggins was pretty much off the grid when the Traded set came out, one of the reasons I am not even attempting that. A Bill Caudill went for $41 last night on ebay is he a tough signature? I have yet to see a Pulido or a Roy Lee Jackson. I have my eye on a Mel Hall right now (currently in prison) for a decent price. Donnie Moore is another of the deceased players that seems to command a high price.

Caudill doesn't sign TTM so I think he has the perception of being tough. In person, he's pretty good about signing. He's an agent now and works for Scott Boras, so he's always around wherever top amateur talent is showcasing. Think Perfect Game, Under Armour game, Team USA, etc. If you're ever near one of those events, Caudill is likely to be in attendance.

Forgot about old Mel Hall. Yeah, he's in for life if I'm not mistaken, and he was never overly easy to begin with. I can see his cards carrying a decent price tag for set collectors.

Moore died in 1989 and was kind of a surly signer the last couple years after never really getting over the 1986 AL Playoff game that he blew. I think the price of his card is simply from the popularity of the set, his other cards are usually more reasonable, unless it's a late issue 1988 or 1989 card.

I actually have an in-person Pulido that I would be willing to part with. I have a friend whose wife is from Mexico, and he travels there 2-3 times a year for baseball events and games. He went to a Mexican MLB Alumni event a month or two ago that a ton of former MLB players attended and got me a couple of Pulido's 87T signed, along with some other guys who have been MIA for years. If you're interested, PM me with your email address and I can send you a scan.
