Default Jackie Robinson Wallet

I am thinking this is the $600.00 range. Anyone seen anything like it before?

I hope for the opening posterís sake that I am wrong but I cannot believe thatís a genuine vintage item. It looks to be a poor modern attempt at a forgery with zero to almost zero value.

I respectfully disagree.

your hopes have been answered because it is a genuine vintage item.

I also disagree as I have one somewhere in a box. It also came in different colors. I believe mine is a light blue leather background, but I have also seen them in black....

Completely legit...

I have one too. There are others in the set as well.... DiMaggio, Williams, etc.

The common denominator is the Willard Mullin characterization on the reverse side. They all have it, and the value in NRMT condition is roughly $500 - $600.

Does having the box do anything for the value?

To me personally, it would not help the value. I like to display these things, and my personal belief is that it looks better outside of the box.... especially since the box portion is in rough condition. The Wallet is so nice, it should be displayed fully, without the box (which to me, is a distraction).

But aside from my personal taste, there are collectors who love original boxes... regardless of condition. Perhaps the majority feel this way, and I'm in the minority. It seems like you may be selling it, and looking for a suggested price.

If using ebay, I'd go $599 with a "Best Offer" Option, and see what offers come in. If you don't get any offers you like, you can always consign it to an AH that does well with Memorabilia. I think it would do well in Lelands, REA or LOTG. Inside the Park also does pretty well with these things.

But the Auction route is riskier... they'd probably start the bidding at around $200, and see where it goes from there. Could do better than eBay, but could do worse. And it will take longer to be paid. So you just need weigh the pros/cons, and do what makes you most comfortable.

Good luck!

I have not seen that color before. Nor have I ever seen the box.
I have seen a couple similar to the brown color I own. There is also a pencil holder with the same pix.
I think the pricing is correct but don't know if ebay is the place to get max dollars.
