Icon-O-Clasm: 1993 Elite Signature Series Will Clark autograph
It’s here! It’s finally here! Twenty years after its release, the 1993 Donruss Elite Signature Series Will Clark has come to the ‘Icon’s collection!
If you’re not familiar with this card, it was the last of the three Signed cards that Donruss inserted into packs from 1991 to 1993. The first was Ryne Sandberg, the second was Cal Ripken Jr, and the third is Clark.
All cards are serial numbered to 5,000; all were damn near impossible to pull from packs, and all still draw a premium on the market.
Here’s the funny thing though: Of the three cards, Clark seems to be the hardest to find on the secondary market is good condition. For some reason the signatures on Clark’s card faded like crazy over the years.
They usually approach and sometimes top triple figures when the ink is clear and readable. Obviously they go for considerably less when the blue ink has turned gray or even disappeared.
I nabbed mine in eBay from a reputable dealer virtually sight unseen. It was a bit of a gamble, but I’m thrilled with what arrived in the mail today.
