  • 1984 Topps Mike Witt Autograph Question

    A relative of mine was recently selling a number of cards on eBay from the 1984 Topps set that were autographed through the mail. Most weren't big stars and were selling for peanuts (.99 cents each or so), but a Mike Witt autographed card sold for $13.

    Does anyone have any explanation for this? Is Witt a tough signer or something?

    Thanks.

    Have you seen what his signed stuff goes for on ebay??? I just searched for "Mike Witt signed", and the cheapest signed card that came up was $29.99!! His TTM success rate on SCN is 4% (1/24), so at least through the mail, yes, he is tough, and he did throw a perfect game, which might explain the high demand for his autos.
