I agree that Jewish Players bring a premium.

My girlfriend is Jewish and her father collected and is so proud of these players. Even when we went to the Yankees Tiger game last year for old timers day, and Kinsler came up he goes..."he's part of the tribe". haha

Jewish players bring in premiums without a doubt. People pay more money for Jimmie Reese Zeenuts than they should because he's Jewish. Even Hank Greenberg, hall of famer, gets Jewish tagged to his items because it's a major collecting focus for a lot of people.

One might say Jewish players have a proverbial 'regional premium,' as certain players and teams have premiums in certain localities.

As a side note, I just found out that my friend's great uncle was the Jewish middleweight champion Al McKoy (Changed his last name from Alexander).
