Default Antique Roadshow rerun 1949 Mantle checks

I seen this a day or two ago and was curious if these checks ever hit the market and what price was achieved.

They did a follow up interview with her right after the appraisal. At that time she said she would just keep the check as it came from her grandfather.
Here is a link to the follow up interview.

Larry,

It's television, baby!! These shows have alot of BS built into them in order to build ratings. Take it with a grain of salt...

I would like to hear from others on what they believe a true realized value would be in a legitimate auction.

If she wanted to sell them, it may have been a tactical error to admit she had 5 of the checks. The appraiser may have been right on one check selling in the $30-50k range, there are some very competitive Mantle collectors out there who would love to have the only one. Knowing that there are 4 others out there would probably drive the price down a bit. I could still see each check bringing $20k though.

As a Koufax collector, I would pay that for one of his first payroll checks. I have one of Jackie Robinson's last payroll checks, and while it was endorsed by Rachel, it is still pretty cool.
