2011 Topps Update Sandy Koufax Autograph

One of the best autograph pulls from 2011 Topps Update Series Baseball is the Sandy Koufax Topps 60 Autograph. Two have sold on eBay for about $385.00 each. The cards are sticker autographs and may have sold for more if they were signed on-card. Nonetheless it is a very nice card and Topps has featured Koufax autographs in many of their 2011 Baseball products.
An on-card autograph of Koufax from 2011 Topps Marquee Baseball sold for $900.00 (many more sold in the $600 range) as collectors are willing to pay a premium for top cards. The Topps 60 Autograph actually provides a good value for collectors looking to pick up a Koufax autograph at a cheaper price.

2011 Topps Update Baseball Josh Sale Sketch Card

For the last couple years Topps has introduced sketch cards drawn by actual MLB players instead of the traditional professional or amateur artist sketches.  The result is an interesting insight into the personality of each player and also gives collectors an opportunity to own a one of a kind item.
What is interesting about a few of the 2011 Topps Update Series Baseball Sketch Cards is that some of them are of minor league players who have no Major League experience. Josh Sale is a minor league player for the Tampa Bay Rays and was a 1st round draft pick back in 2010. On October 6th his 1/1 sketch card sold for $99.99 + $2.99 shipping on eBay.
