Default Help with snapshot of Harmon Killebrew

Hi all,

I have not spent a ton of time on this site as most of my collecting had always been modern, but a shift in interest brought me here and I think I am getting hooked.

A neighbor showed me a snapshot of a baseball player asking if I could ID the player and whether it was worth anything. 99% sure the player is Harmon Killebrew, but I don't have an answer on value and would greatly appreciate any help.



Thanks!

Top,
It looks like he is in a Senators Jersey, and That would make the photo pre 1961. Snap shots are not too valuable, I can't give you a good value, probably under $10. I may be wrong though.

Maybe I'm seeing things, but I think the bottom says Aug of 1960.

I think Nate is right about the date.
As far as value, I think snapshots vary wildly in value depending on who is pictured, what they're doing, and how clear the picture is. Many older snapshots are mediocre images where the subjects are blurred, but when you hit a really good one, it can be very valuable. The thing I love about snapshots is that they are very likely to be one of a kind.

Thanks everyone. I will see if I can get a better scan. It does says Aug 60 as mentioned. My neighbor told me his mother took the picture (so I have to imagine it's one of a kind) and he showed it to me asking if it was worth anything. It was nice to see she knew which player on the Senators to get a picture of, but I didn't know much beyond that.

Here is a link to where it is hosted, I think that's a bigger picture:

Default Harmon snapshot

As a player collector I really like the snapshot photos, but like other said it depends on the quality and what the player is doing. I'm sure a Killebrew collector and/or a photo collector would love the photo pictured.

As far as a value, I wouldn't typically pay more than $50 for a snapshot photo...(unless it was a really early photo of Brooksie).

It's hard to tell from the tiny image shown, but looks like a nice-quality (for a snapshot) photo of Killer. As others have said, many snapshots tend to be of the terrible/out-of-focus sort, which limits their resale value. On a nice one like this of a HOFer though, I'd be a quick buyer at $10, re-list at $39.95, and probably accept any offer north of $25 for it. I think you'll find a wide range of pricing on snapshot photos in general, but for this particular one, that's how I personally would go about it.

(Or knowing my luck, I'd be undecided on how to price it, so I'd run it at auction starting at $9.95, it would get 1 bid, and I'd end up taking a loss after fees.)

Just a tip: You'd get a clearer scan if you took the photo out of the slab and laid it flat on the scanner glass (or used a scanner with a CCD element instead). The depth of the slab is causing the photo to look blurrier on that scanner than it is.
