Its not often you can get an autograph from an award winning a-list actress in any product. Getting said autograph for under $20, you have to be kidding me. Where do I sign up? Today’s undervalued cards is autographs by Joan Cusack. You can buy her autographs for as low as $14.99 plus shipping on eBay right now.
I have been sitting on this one for a month or so and in that time all of her cards sold on COMC. She may not be a ‘Benchwarmer’ but she in my book she is better. I would rather buy Cusack’s cards instead of a pathetic no name model who just so happens to take care of her body and knows how to apply make up. I don’t care who it is, give me a talented actress a thousand times over a Benchwarmer.
To recap: award winning, a prominent character in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, talented, and still has many years to earn more achievements. It is time to fix this market slight.

You know that crappy backup catcher whose autograph you used to always pull fifteen years ago? What about that journeyman infielder who was lucky to even have an autographed card to begin with.
Well once these guys turn into managers they are worth something. Once they turn into managers who got their team in the playoffs, their value should skyrocket. Or at least you would think.
Currently you can buy autographed cards from the potential Manager of the Year in both leagues for under $5 each if you look hard enough. I snatched up 2 A.J. Hinch cards for $2 last weekend. Torey Lovullo’s autograph was double that at $4 so I only got one. Managers cards values have been going like hotcakes in the recent hobby environment. Try getting a Joe Maddon or Bruce Bochy autographed card. That will cost you at least $40 each.

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.
