Default What kind of effect do you think a HOF induction would have on a "common" Old Judge?

We talk a lot about possible 19th century future HOFers. How large an effect do you think a HOF induction would have on what is now a "common" N172? I mean if a guy like Bob Caruthers or Jimmy Ryan was inducted. The last two players to get in who had a N172 were McPhee and Hanlon. Was there a dramatic increase in the price of the cards? I know they are tough in general without being a HOFer.

Some players (like Tony Mullane, Dummy Hoy, Pete Browning and Bobby Mathews) already carry a premium. Would you consider these cards to be priced at the HOF level regardless of induction?

Suffice it to say that a major increase in price would be seen, I would say that 5X would not be unrealistic at all.

If a guy like Browning or White were inducted, their cards would skyrocket to, or beyond, the levels of other difficult to find HOFers (McPhee, Robinson, Rusie, and Delahanty). More common subjects, such as Caruthers or Ryan, would carry less of a premium. New HOF inductees often see a spike at time of enshrinement that recedes slightly over time once holes are filled and competition for their cards subsides.

I think the price would increase substantially especially if these players aren't offered in numbers in other sets (during their playing days). I think that there are a substantial number of HOF collectors out there, so there would be competition to get these few cards that exist for their sets.
