1940 Play Ball Set Break and eBay Auction Incentive

BurlsSports.com’s next set break will be a solid, mid-grade 1940 Play Ball Complete Set, and it will go on sale on 10/16/2015 at 8 AM CST for $34.99 per slot.

Overall, this is a remarkably consistent set, with many cards presenting well for their technical grade. A condition breakdown of the set is as follows: 3.6% EX-MT; 31% EX; 41.7% VG-EX; 17.5% VG; 4.4% G and lesser.  41 cards are graded by PSA and 3 cards are graded by SGC.

The 1940 Play Ball set is loaded with Hall of Fame members, from contemporary players like DiMaggio and Williams, to already retired greats like Speaker, Wagner, and Mathewson. The Shoeless Joe Jackson card is included in the high series, and it one of the most desirable cards in the set. The current market value of the PSA 5 Dimaggio alone is between $1000 and $1300, with the Shoeless coming in at $600-800, and the Ted bringing $400 to $450. In fact, even commons in the high series have a high book value of $70, and with over 50 Hall of Fame members in this set, there are plenty of hits to go around.

You can preview some of the scans in the gallery below, but don’t stop reading there. Check out the auction incentives further down the page!
