Eddie Mathews Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Eddie Mathews

Date of Birth: 10/13/1931
Rookie Card Year: 1952
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

As a member of the 500 Home Run Club, Eddie Mathews baseball cards and autographed memorabilia have always been cherished collectibles. His rookie card comes from the legendary 1952 Topps Baseball.

Eddie Mathews is considered to be one of the best third basemen of all-time. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1978. Mathews shunned the spotlight and was not a regular member of the post-retirement autograph circuit that would establish itself in the sports collectible market years later.  As a result, his autographed items command a premium with high-grade examples often being difficult to find, particularly, jerseys.

He did live long enough to see the inclusion of retired players in modern trading card products. As a result, he does have several on-card autographs in products released between 1997 and 2000.

As a result it commands a higher premium than one might already expect.

Eddie Mathews Cut Signature Exemplar

Eddie Mathews Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Eddie Mathews signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A pride of penmanship exists, even into his older years.
  2. The signature leans to the right.
  3. Close inspection shows that all the letters are discernible.
  4. The "E" is formed in a manner, that despite it being printed, the pen remains on the paper as it connects with the first "d"; it does this with two small vertical lines, coming off the second and third horizontal lines.
  5. The loops of the "d"'s are open with the second often having a curl coming off the top of the vertical stroke.
  6. The "i" is dotted but is combine with the "e" and as such results in looking more like a letter "a."
  7. The "M" has angular humps with each one visible.
  8. The letter "a" is slightly open.
  9. The cross of the "t" also crosses the "h."
  10. The "e-w" are expressed but the hardest to discern and the "s" is legible.
