Autographs from retired legends have proven to be the top sellers thus far in 2012 Topps Heritage Baseball. Of the ten highest single-card sales registered on eBay during the set's first week of release, all but one had a Hall of Fame signature (or a redemption for one). While that's not surprising, the fact that an autographed dual-patch card featuring Matt Holliday and Bob Gibson outsold everything else is. Numbered to 5, the Clubhouse Collection Autographed Dual Relic has a pair similar three-color swatches and clean signatures from both players. Bidding closed at a very strong $621.
Next up was a Real One Dual Autograph of Dodger greats past and present, Sandy Koufax and Clayton Kershaw. Numbered to 25, the card sold for $550.
Sticking with the dual signature theme, the third top-selling 2012 Topps Heritage Baseball card on eBay was a Clubhouse Collection Autographed Dual Relic of Ernie Banks and Starlin Castro. Finishing at $520, the card is limited to 10 copies.
Proving once again that errors and variations create interest, a 2012 Topps Heritage Baseball Mike Stanton Error SSP variation sold for $500. The variation is found on the back of the card. The Runs stat column, which should have an "R" is instead headlined by a "W."
Like 2012 Topps Tribute, a fair number of the high-end hits come in the form of redemptions. Of the top ten eBay sales, three come with the bleach white promissory note.
