Default Auto Mantle Rookies on the block

I just came across this story about a guy who put his 52 topps/51 bowman autgraphed mantle rookies up for auction.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/2dbb530...d-teacher.html

The author makes it sound like a big deal that mantle signed "best wishes" and it's also kinda funny how he accentuates that mantle signed for "free!"

Does the "best wishes" add value?????

Just imagine how many Aaron's, Mays and Williams would be coming to market, let alone all those sets he owned, if it weren't for some serious bad luck.
Like the article reads, at least he kept those 2 Mantle's in a safe place. I hope they fetch him big money!

Olsen ticked off a few of his aching losses. Twenty-four 1954 Hank Aaron rookies. Five or six 1952 Topps Willie Mays. Many Ted Williams from all years. Fourteen complete 1954 Topps sets.
