1979 Signature Miniatures Statues and Cards

Not too much is know about this issue but the company seems to have gone into bankruptcy and ceased production late into the run so some of the statues are extremely scarce and may not exist at all.  Manufactored by Metallic Creations they issued pewter statue in an original box (name stamped on side) with an enclosed card.  Statues are approx  3”-3 1/2" tall depending on the pose.  Card is approx 3.5" x 4.75" each player also has a facsimile autograph on the front the back has career statistics on them. The cards are unnumbered and have sequenced them in alphabetical order. The statues and the cards were available for $7.95 upon release. The players listed as SP's were produced late in the run and are available in lesser quantities than the other players listed in our checklist.
