Before you rate me, be sure to let me know if I have left any president out -

Retail value of presidential autographs in USA dollars:

Jimmy Carter - 125

George H W Bush - 130

Bill Clinton - 120

George W Bush - 100

Barack Obama - 500

Gerald Ford - 100

These are values are based on signatures alone and not on historical documents or photographs.

A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.

Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.

Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system. To rate me, you should see 5 stars near my answer. 5 stars gives me the best rating.

Kind regards.

What are the prices you gave me based on?
In some cases they are quite a bit different then anything I have seen.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

They are based on auction "buy it now" prices for autographs with certificates of authenticity.

As I mentioned in my original answer, these values are based on autographs alone, not baseballs, documents, etc.

Kind regards,
