2016 Historic Autographs Originals 1970s Baseball Checklist and Details

Share:

2016 Historic Autographs Originals 1970s Baseball mixes original cards from the decade with cut signatures. The two are combined to create something new. A total of 100 players are featured in the limited edition release, over half of which are Hall of Famers.

The 100 players make up the full set. A quarter of these are short print with just five copies each. That said, the cards with the highest print runs have 35 copies each so the range isn’t too extreme. Key players on the checklist include Thurman Munson, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, Willie Mays and George Brett.

All of the cut signatures are certified by PSA/DNA.

The buyback concept could get overwhelming. However, Historic Autographs thought this out. All of the cards used for a specific player in the main set are the same. This means no variations or a seemingly endless chase if you’re simply going after the main 100-card set.

That said, select players have special one-of-one cards that have other cards from the decade. Lou Brock, Rod Carew, Reggie Jackson, Fergie Jenkins, Jim Palmer, Tony Perez and Pete Rose are the players with these parallels of sort. They combine to land one per case.

2016 Historic Autographs Originals 1970s goes beyond baseball in one regard. Randomly inserted are redemptions good for a graded solid gold $5 coin.

The product has a production run of 40 ten-box cases. Expect to pay $275-$300 per box, each with four cards. Each case has three short prints and a one-of-one cards.

    I see only 2 players that will make you ahead of the game on price. Almost every player on the list is readily available for less. Even Hank Aaron can be found for under $50 for a PSA/DNA certified card.
    (Leaf Cut Signatures for example). Ted Williams is easy to find under $150.

    If you get a Clemente or Thurmon, you win.
    If you get the gold coin too I would expect.
    So 1600 cards of which 10 get you there.
    Not great odds.

    These are 4 Cards per box. Making the odds better that you get good boxes. Short prints in HA Registry Sets consistently get $200-$600. So, with 3 SP’s per case averaging those numbers and each box having 4 cards of the 100 card set this isn’t nearly as dismal as Richard makes it seem.

    I collect for enjoyment, but I also figure out where best to allocate my money. I will take an on card autograph that was created for that sole purpose as my first choice every time. After that, a card signed by the player and PSA/DNA preferably encapsulated by BGS or the like.

    If I can buy something I consider a higher quality for less money, I’d be crazy to do otherwise.
    I don’t crack product with an eye towards resale, I base it on odds of getting what I would want to keep. Selling stuff I don’t want is a pain in the butt.
    The last time I did any serious cracking was a couple of years ago with Bowman Platinum when they did
    prospects with on card autos, I did not go near the current product with its stickers.
