Undervalued? – Iron Sheik
September 22, 2017 § Leave a comment
As a collector on a budget, I have to work the ends of the hobby to get good value on cards. Fortunately some are hidden in plain sight like my Panini points pickups from a few weeks ago. So in a similar vein of that post, I present to you a new segment on this site: Undervalued?
I have no idea why The Iron Sheik would be an undervalued autograph. To me he is an upper echelon WWE legend, up there with the likes of Triple H, Mick Foley, and Booker T. He is the man who Hulk Hogan owes everything too, as he was the villain that helped birth Hulkamania. He is a former WWE champion, and was a champion when it meant everything to be champion. He is a Hall of Famer. Yet for some reason, if you browse COMC, his autograph is buried in price with autographs of nobodies like Adam Rose, Aiden English, and the Usos selling for higher than his. I picked up these 2 gems for $9 a piece. One to keep and one to sell when people come to their senses. At the very least I think his autograph should be a $20 autograph. I hate to say it but watch when he dies, his autograph will probably quadruple in value – and in wrestling years he is probably about 200, considering most die before the age of 50. The time to get his autograph is now.
