In particular he had 2 auto's of what many consider to be the hardest autograph to obtain - Bill Meyers #387 - who resigned after the '52 season & passed shortly thereafter.

Here is a write up on those 2 cards from LOTG

I seen that card a few days ago and wondered why they called it the impossible card. The write up explained it and explained why it's current bid was so high. Not sure where that card will end up, price wise, but my gut tells me it is going to finish a lot higher than where it currently is.

One thing you have to love is the speculation of hobby enthusiasts. Last auction the Fannin was impossible, per one collector, however there were two graded at the time. This auction it's the Meyer, also two currently graded.

Howie Fox died in '55, the earliest if the 52 guys, and there are 5 graded examples! That being said, I was told for years the Meyer couldnt exist, and now 2 have surfaced. There ARE still 16 cards from the set not graded by psa/dna. Now we can speculate THOSE don't exist...for now

I did not offer to buy anything Irv. Felt a little conflicted about that it given her situation and how I was put in contact with her. I had all the Topps and Bowman regular sets and thought anything unique should go to auction to determine it's real market worth. I had a blast looking through the stuff. She offered to let pick some stuff for my time but given I am retired I almost felt I should pay her for the chance to rummage through it all. She debated selling it en mass to someone or putting stuff up for auctions, and chose auctions

In the end she sent me debit cards for a high end restaurant here and a couple of autographed Cardinal pictures ( I am originally from St Louis).

By the way, Al C was great. Came down and met with her described what he could do and how he would do it. She came to trust him and was happy with the results

Just to close the loop here from the initial post, my NNOF came from this auction. I suspected the "NNOF" was probably erased, but wasn't sure. I have perhaps 5 NNOF which came from different sources who were long time collectors.

Ted, do autograph collectors pay a premium for the autographed cards with variations?

Thanks again for all the input.

That's easy to understand.

Glad she made out good with the auction and was happy with the result.
