Default Anyone else bid in Christie's today?

I was the under bidder in the Foster and White lots. I thought there was some good bargains, including the Pompez and Huggins signatures.

I won one of the 1910 Walter Johnson letters...I thought there was some good bargains to be had, and a lot of items that went well beyond what I thought they would...

The Biz Mackey and Andy Cooper signed pictures were absurdly cheap. Was authenticity in question there? It seems to me any signed image of those two players should have fetched far more than the price realized.

There are authenticity issues with these items, plus I saw pictures of these items, they are both tiny and the Mackey is quite faded.

That makes sense then. Tiny pic and faded signature alone, the rarity could make one overlook those aspects, but I imagine it's hard to authenticate a printed name of guys whose autographs probably number in the low single digits. If real the winning bidders got them for a steal.

I remember when they first came to auction in late 2006 or early 2007, I know they were both just elected or inducted into the HoF, and were separate lots from a grouping of small signed photos from a Japanese tour . The Mackey and Cooper sold then for a little over 7K each . People at that time questioned their authenticity even with COAs even though the other signatures in the other lots were deemed authentic.

What was the consensus on the George Davis letter? Legit? Good price or too rare to figure what the market really is?

Michael- This is my 2 cents after seeing Christy's auciton,

1) Submit it to PSA now that Kevin is lead authenticator
2) I would guesstimate, if passes PSA, around $7,500.

Based on strictly the sales from Christie's
